UKIP as kingmaker

John Ward notes that the Coalition is falling from grace. Indeed so. Perhaps the electorate is waking up to the fact that it doesn't matter who you vote for, the EU government gets in.

All three main parties support corporatism and are themselves supported by corporatism.

The EU being corporatism personified, our only hope is to leave the EU.

It will be a cold day in hell before the 3 parties support small businesses rather than merely paying lip-service to the notion.

While I can understand voters voting for Cons or Dems to keep Labour out, it is precisely this propensity which brought us a ConDem government.

If we want change, knowing that we will not get it from the main three, we need to have the courage to vote for any party/independent which is not one of the main 3.

My preference is UKIP and I believe that this preference is growing.

Many argue that UKIP would be incapable of forming a credible government even were it to obtain the required number of votes to do so.

The reality is that UKIP, were it to win seats, might well become "kingmaker" supplanting the Dems. Here, it is worth noting that in a recent poll, the Libdems obtained a mere 7%, while UKIP managed 5%. It is not inconceivable therefore that with the growing disillusionment of the electorate might put UKIP's share of the vote above that of the Dems.

Surely, this would be preferable to the EU-skewed configuration we now have in Parliament.
