In response to, “Jonathan Cockfield: The established parties don’t get it. Ukip is a state of mind not a clutch of policies”, Nockian wrote:
UKIP support is a sign of discontent with Westminster and a wider discontent with the State. No need to over analyse it. Change is inevitable. This is what happened in the USSR and is now beginning in the West.
We have fallen out of love with the State, but we haven’t yet figured out what should replace it. UKIP is just a stepping stone in those deliberations and not an end in itself. It’s like arranging the roof tiles without noticing the foundations are in a slow collapse.
