My inner pedant compels me to point out to Foreign Muck that potatoes are foreign too, although not European, so possibly acceptable to UKIP supporters.
I think if UKIP are serious about ridding Britain of all foreignness, they should use only words that are British in origin. That would make their party political broadcasts more interesting, and their policies only slightly less comprehensible.
Anyway, I'd love him to move in next door. I'd rent my house out to a family of Roma, just for the hell of it.

UKIPs campaign hasn't been about ridding Britain of all foreigners. It's about capping immigration and controlling our boarders, something that we can't do all the time we remain part of the European parliament.
Get your facts right.

You need to get your irony detector checked out Mungo, it doesn't appear to be working.

Ha, ACT, my inner pednant would point out the second point I made about potatoes. :-) You are right though. Americans do not seem to offend UKIPS, unless they are gay, disabled, black, muslim, or female . Perhaps a white Amercian man with Romanian heritage would be just about acceptable as a neighbour for Mr Farage, but it is hard to tell. Oh, and UKIPs do want to get rid of foreigners, they just don't want to put it in writing.

Good morning campers! Is there anyone out there with half a brain cell prepared to engage in a civvilised, intelligent debate about the issues that Ukip has raised, and which will cause millions of us to vote for them tomorrow without resorting to playground abuse and accusations of hating all foreigners and so on.
(Wanting to bring democracy back from an unelected bureaucracy in Brussels has nothing to do with racism or xenophobia.)

No?...thought not.

Okay so what are the issues UKIP has raised because I for one cant see that have any actual policies - perhaps UKIP supporter you could enlighten us?

the latest amateur UKIP clown (there does seem to be an endless supply) has raised the issue that he thinks Croydon is a dump. I am not sure that insulting the town that your voters live in is a good political move….
UKIP Supporter has done the same thing calling everyone unintelligent before we have had a chance to answer a question. Charming. Thanks for that.

Good grief, voter, you've found a UKIP statement I agree with.
I grew up in Croydon (still visit occasionally as some of the in-laws are still there) and it is, truly, a dump. The riots the other year were initially believed to be an environmental improvement scheme.
Nice library, though.

but i doubt you would say it to promote your election campaign.
It's also a dump with a lot of jobs.

That is, of course, their biggest problem, they are a bunch of loose canons who blurt out what they are really thinking rather than thinking first. I suppose I would like my MP to sound professional even if she/he had views of his /her own. For the sake of politeness we all should think first at who we are addressing, and if we wnat them to vote for us we really shouldn't insult the people we are talking to.
