UKIP to change name to 'Independence'

According to a recent news report, UKIP is planing to rename itself 'Independence' and move even further to the right, in an attempt to capitalise on what it sees as the Conservative Party's move to the centre ground of UK politics under the new leadership of David Cameron.

This latest attempt to get away from its traditional single-issue politics of UK withdrawal from the European Union will even see a recruitment drive for more women candidates which poses the question whether Yorkshire MEP Godfrey Bloom will be leading this recruitment drive. For those who may not remember, Godfrey Bloom is infamous for his comments in the European Parliament when he claimed that he wanted "to deal with women's issues [...] because I just don't think they clean behind the fridge enough." adding "I am here to represent Yorkshire women, who always have dinner on the table when you get home."

UKIP's planned policies include a campaign for the introduction of some form of proportional representation for Westminster elections in addition to independence for schools, hospitals and local councils as well as lower taxes.

Perhaps the more enlightened of UKIP's misguided party members and voters (should they exist) will be seeking their own 'independence'.

Their recent display of disregard for the Scottish fishing industry shows how little they care about the UK anyway.

Surely the nazis showed us, that it is possible to make anything or anyone look good or bad. I would suggest that readers of this site look carefully at both sides of the argument, and not just this anti UKIP pro EU propoganda site. Who sponsors the site? Who pays for it? Who runs it?

Clearly the feeling is not mutual. Ref: UK general election 2005 (using UK elections system).

What is that last comment supposed to mean? It doesn't look like it means anything.

I should think that Godfrey Bloom's comments on Women will probably win UKIP votes not lose them.
