And I always listen to my mum! ( well in 43 years most of the time )
My mum, a veteran political watcher, tells me not to bother with Ukip they will go the way of other extremist parties. They will make one to many mistakes and the British Public will take a good hard long look and reject them. She’s very wise my mum but I am not ready to ignore then quite yet.
This week, however, has been a reminder to us all that Ukip have very few principles and that their online social media support is largely subservient to the cult of Nigel and Ukip.
Kippers have managed to excuse:
Going after the money.
Lying to the British public about donations to the Red Cross .. And then slating the Red Cross for not wanting to accept donations from them
Not forgetting this classy effort from Thomas Evans
Kippers have managed to demonstrate they have no sense of humour
Today we had the surreal picture of a group of smiling ukip supporters in front of their new poster featuring the picture of a sexually abused girl.
Ukip may have miscalculated – exploiting the appalling abuse of so many young people, when parents have asked them not to, will not sit well with the British Public. Ukip has an excuse for this, apparently they are highlighting child abuse. They forget it’s already been highlighted the report into the abuse was not by them and they have offered no solutions or ways to help the abused girls. Instead they further exploit them.
Finally there is this
I would like to thank all those who exposed just one of the little and big lies that Ukip told this week. Anyone who has been called an apologist for abusers .. anyone whose been called a lefty libtard .. anyone who had just one conversation with a kipper and been abused because of it. Ukip will come undone, just as my mum predicts, because of all the individuals who never let a lie remain unchallenged.
