Well the European elections are coming up very fast now, and this morning i got some leaflets through the door from some of the parties. The one that interests me the most is UKIP. Now on the leaflet is says;

Your UKIP MEPs will;

Say no to EU membership. we want to run our own country

Say no to EU constitution

Say no to unlimited EU immigration

Say no to the euro

and other things aswell

Now from reading that, UKIP is basicly the same as the BNP (British national party), the BNP are standing for the exact same thing. The BNP formed after leaving the national front (neo nazi's) and its hard to see how the two parties are different. It seems that UKIP are just hiding the fact that they are representing the same policies as a neo nazi party.

Kilroy, the ex bbc chat show host who had to resign after making comments about islamic states, is standing as a MEP for UKIP aswell. To me, UKIP is a joke, a big joke.

Voting for UKIP will be like voting for the BNP, their both the same, one is open racists and the other is hidding it. IMHO UKIP = Racist pigs

I know that the BNP are an offshoot of the National Front, but always believed that UKIP was purely Brit-biased-anti-EU rather than racist. That means that anyone born in the UK, irrespective of their ancestry, are British. That is how it should be.

The BMP/NF believe that people with non-British ancestry (ie Jamaican, Indian) should be returned to the countries of their ancestors. Thats utter bollocks, since they were born in Britain and are therefore British.

If the BNP want to send back everyone based on their ancestries, most people will have to bugger off to either India (The celts originated there) or Europe (Saxons). And if they really want to play games, everyone should go back to Africa because according to historical research, thats where humanity began.

What a pile of #e the racists spout.

I got an interesting pamphlet through the door today from BNP. It's disgusting how openly racist they are. Part of the pamphlet, referring to the expansion of the EU, reads,

"Since May 1st, 75 million potential migrants from Eastern Europe - including hundreds of thousands of gypsies - can now walk into Britain and live here at our expense."

And yes, the part about gypsies was printed in bold type.

It is frightening that there are people who hold these extreme xenophobic views, by which most of us would be repulsed, yet they are gaining support.

They are nothing less than fascists, who stand for no issue other than isolating anyone who is not white in British society. The pamphlet mentions absolutely no policies other than stopping immigration altogether. What would a party like this do if they came to power?

What really got to me though, at the risk of sounding xenophobic myself, was that this pamphlet was aimed at Scottish voters. Living as I do in nothing less than a colony of England, I feel very little in the way of pride in Britain, or its imperial past, in which these Neo-Nazi thugs are obviously buried.

These people see the British people as a master race, and have a desire to rule the world, as Britain once did. They do not seem, however, to want to have anything to do with the people of the formerly conquered nations. There is no logical reason for their way of thinking, they are just racist hooligans. Yet in the name of free speech I read the whole of their vile pamphlet.

Thankfully, the BNP do not represent the "Patriotic Majority" as they put it, but they will only continue to gain support unless more moderate parties actually take a confirmed stance on a few issues for once.

I got an interesting leaflet from the English Democrats and their websites is here. Now i like this party a lot, policies are good, no nazism and no Kilroy

English Democrats are people from widely varying backgrounds and from all parts of England. We are fed up and frustrated by the failure of politicians to address our concerns. We are not extremists, we are people like you - people who are concerned about what is happening to our country and to our culture.

I can see a second rise in fascism. With the recent 'terrorist' attacks, society is filled with bigotted people who hate anyone from the middle east, and assume their all terrorists- like Kilroy. Just as society was getting over its hatred of everyone else, 9/11 happened and now were back in the world of fascist parties gaining popular support again! In america, there already is one in power.

I think the major parties will wake up when there's a big UKIP vote, and do something to appease voters, otherwise we'll be opening concentration camps.

Tory leader Michael Howard has sought to portray his party as offering a middle way between withdrawal from the EU and moves to create a super state
In a speech he contrasted his party's position with that of the UK Independence Party "at one extreme" and Labour and Lib Dems at the other.

On Saturday the Tory whip was withdrawn from four peers for supporting UKIP ahead of the Euro elections on 10 June.

A recent poll has suggested that support for UKIP has hit the Tories.
