Electoral Reform (Stage 1), The arguments for voting reform. Part 4c.

December 8, 2017 // 2 Comments

FPTP is unfair and unrepresentative. On 5th May 2011, the UK held a national referendum and the people were asked the following question. At present, the UK uses the “first past the post” system to elect MPs to the House of Commons. Should the “alternative vote” system be [...]

Electoral Reform (Stage 1), The arguments for voting reform. Part 4a.

November 12, 2017 // 7 Comments

[Ed: you can read Part 1 in this series here, part 2 here and part 3 here] Coalition is a good thing. During the ‘This Week’ TV programme (2nd November 2017), Michael Portillo introduced a novel argument against PR. He asserted that it was responsible for the Israeli government’s rather [...]

So – Now What?

October 6, 2017 // 52 Comments

Fellow Kippers – enough is enough! I’ve read the comments quite diligently, and while I didn’t give much weight to the various threats made during the campaign, that members would leave should AMW be elected, taking them for election campaign hyperbole, at the same time I thought the [...]

Sitting Duck Politics

September 15, 2017 // 46 Comments

At the last general election (2017), UKIP was effectively a sitting duck for attacks by the legacy parties and their fellow travellers in the main stream media.  Repeatedly, the message was that UKIP is a single issue party (campaigning to leave the European Union, the EU), and now that BREXIT is [...]

The biggest issue facing our country is not: Brexit blundering; runaway immigration; rampant political correctness; rising Islamist terrorism; disappearing defence capabilities; burgeoning national debt; punitive taxes; expanding unaccountable Big Brother/nanny state government; crises laden NHS; [...]

Leadership and the Future.

July 11, 2017 // 20 Comments

Those who frequent these pages will be familiar with my political views over the years as expressed in some 69 articles published in the Daily. The absence of appropriate clarity and vision in the party and a dearth of candidates with only broad generalisations or single-issue focus supporting [...]

Reflections and Elections

June 8, 2017 // 24 Comments

This election campaign may go down in British history as both the most unnecessary and surprising of recent times. Not only have the majority of British newspapers been forced to change their predictions (along with their oh so fickle loyalty), but what was initially seen as the death knell of [...]

It’s Events, Dear Boy

May 26, 2017 // 12 Comments

So politics are to re-commence on Friday of this week. I do hope our politicians and the sycophantic MSM will realise it will not be acceptable to return to the same subjects, where we left off on Monday. If I recall correctly, Mrs. May being crucified for some form of chicanery with a disappearing [...]
