As the Conservatives squabble amongst themselves and Labour moves ever leftwards under Captain Ed, the catalyst of all this change keeps growing…
Support for the UK Independence Party has reached a record 19 per cent, while both Labour and Conservatives are losing ground, it has emerged. Despite a week of controversy, in which UKIP leader Nigel Farage visited Edinburgh and was locked in a pub by angry protestors, public backing for the party has never been higher. The UK Independence Party leader said the left-wing extremists who trapped him were the ‘ugly face of Scottish nationalism’ pursuing an anti-English agenda. However, poll results do not reflect the crowds who just this week shouted ‘racist scumbag’ and ‘scum’ at the leader, who has begun to pose a real threat as a major political party.
Leaving aside the inherent bias in this article, the point is that UKIP now have 19% support whilst the Lib Dems – the party sharing Government – have 8%. Come 2015, there is every chance of a Conservative-UKIP coalition government and Nigel Farage has been refreshingly frank on the matter. He said he WOULD contemplate such a thing IF David Cameron is removed as leader! Farage knows how to place a dagger at the neck and of course Cameron HATES him with a vengeance, hence the insults about UKIP voters. The real problem for Cameron is that more and more Conservative rank and file voters are turning to UKIP for Conservative policies. That torrent is turning into a tidal wave and that is what is reflected in this poll and the tortured manoeuvring of the Cameronians as they seek to
A young woman is seeking asylum in Britain after she spurned the advances of the polyamorous King Mswati III of Swaziland and refused to join his harem of 13 wives. Tintswalo Ngobeni, 22, fled to England from the southern African nation as a teenager after she caught the attention of the millionaire monarch, a notoriously oppressive ruler known for his lavish lifestyle. As part of Swazi custom, King Mswati III, 45, is permitted to choose a new bride every year.
What fascinates me is why someone from Swaziland would seek refuge in a country thousands of miles away. Are there NO other welcoming countries in between, or perhaps might it be that the UK is such a soft touch that it acts as a magnet?
France’s president has signed into law a controversial bill making the country the ninth in Europe, and 14th globally, to legalise gay marriage. On Friday, the Constitutional Council rejected a challenge by the right-wing opposition, clearing the way for Francois Hollande to sign the bill. He said: “I have taken [the decision]; now it is time to respect the law of the Republic.” The first gay wedding could be held 10 days after the bill’s signing.”
Wonder when the first mosque will hold a gay wedding – France has quite a few of them too…
I see that George Michael is recovering from head injuries after his car crashed on the M1. Eye witnesses say they heard an almighty WHAM. Paramedics on the scene said Mr Michael woke up before he go go’ed to hospital and was lucky he hadn’t been taken to the edge of heaven by passing bad boys….
Now THIS is excellent news! It is time that the pension apartheid ENDED
Doctors, nurses, teachers and local government staff will see the income from their ‘gold-plated’ public sector pensions slashed by more than a THIRD under the Government’s reform plans. Some four million public sector workers will see their retirement income take a huge hit as the Government looks to cut its pension liabilities by a quarter by 2065.
Even a third of a reduction is not sufficient to bring them into line with that those who fund them ie the Private sector, have to endure.
This is how radical demographic change works folks…
At least 7.5million immigrants now live in Britain, making up 13 per cent of the total population, it was revealed today. New data from the 2011 Census shows that 3.8million came to the UK’s shores in the previous ten years, doubling the number who were already living here. A surge from Europe also meant that more people came from the continent in the decade to 2011 than the 50 years before then put together.
Got that? And those who come are having large families, making Britain a VERY different place.
