Reader’s Comment: May is a recruiting sergeant for Ukip


In response to Laura Perrins: Hatchet job on Leadsom repels mothers from No 10, jamesbarn wrote:

At the end of this piece, I asked where do we go from here? Well now we know and the answer is nowhere. This has been a stitch-up on the most blatant scale. But look on the bright side May will in all probability be the last Tory PM this century it will be Ukip from now on

Many were and are shocked by the Brexit vote. Well perhaps we should all consider the choices facing the electorate. To begin with ALL of the parties, Lib Dems, Tories, Labour and Greens were ALL pro-EU except Ukip. None would admit that immigration is not only changing society’s culture but that it also put pressure on our facilities.

In fact, just to raise these issues has been answered with cries of racism. Those who voted Brexit are not racist but were denied a voice for their frustration and the only party in tune with them is Ukip. In order to suppress these issues being raised, every opportunity was taken to vilify Farage and Ukip by the other parties and the media and to ridicule his views.

However, the masses are not stupid and with the increasing use of social media it soon became clear that a lot of what Farage was saying was true. Cameron’s conceit in labelling the 4 million Ukip supporters as fruitcakes, nutters and racists undermined the rights of many to express their views for fear of unfounded allegations of racism. Now not only has he reaped the backlash big time but half his party and Labour are now very much in tune with things Ukip have been saying for years.

The warning came when Ukip won the EU election. Cameron did not think he would gain an outright win in the general election so promised a referendum thinking the Lib Dems would overrule it. Now forced into a referendum he decided to promote campaign scare, some of which may have had substance. However, the public were by now sick of his empty promises and phony renegotiations and they looked for a way to remind ALL political parties that they were there, not for their benefit but to serve the electorate.

The Tories had ridiculed the working classes and Labour had ignored them. A referendum was the ideal and only opportunity to bring both into line and they took it. Labour are now in disarray, Cameron and his elite group have been humiliated and he has lost his job. A lesson now learned, you cannot fool all the people all the time. So where do we go from here.
