"The UK Independence Party (UKIP), formed in 1993 opposing Britain’s entry into the European Union, failed to make an electoral dent for a long time. However UKIP has built up steam in recent years and is spearheading a seismic shift in the British political spectrum.

In this year’s local elections – the British version of midterms -- UKIP took a stunning 23 percent of the vote, up from the 3.1 percent they won in the 2010 national election. Their leader, Nigel Farage, is buoyed by their recent success..."

Ignore and obfuscate....its their only weapon.

The question is what your point is. It isn't a secret the UK doesn't like the EU very much and only joined because they received lots of exemptions for usual EU members, namely keeping their own currency. This party also seems to be taking advantage of people like liking Cameronism very much which is basically a contemporary version of Thatcherism. Pointless things like blocking pornography from the population are also not helping the Tories.

Blocking porn is oppressive...

Seems even groups who oppose the nanny-state in GB get called racists. Remember, more whites are welching off the government than anyone else here and there, how can that be racists. Oh, the immigration thing, just like here if you recognize your Nation can't afford to feed and provide medical care for a growing immigrant population that somehow makes you racist.

As if Austraiians would be ok in the U.S. or GB..."Sure c'mon in" America and Britiain would say, "for our white brethren we're always willing to lower our standard of living and increase our deficit for people who LOOK like us"

That effed up liberal fantasy is definetly one of the reason's the Left makes me sicker than the Right.

Interesting article

The big story this year, however, is the rise of a “fourth party” atop the wreck of the coalition between Cameron’s Conservatives and Britain’s center-left third party, the Liberal Democrats. UKIP, the UK Independence Party, stands for restricting immigration, getting out of the EU, and opposing nanny-statism. (Some of Britain’s new alcohol regulations are the cultural equivalent of Mayor Bloomberg’s war on Big Gulps.) These are populist or nationalist former Tories and independents, though UKIP says it draws from all established parties. And while UKIP gets pilloried as a party of “fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists” (in David Cameron’s words), as Tim Stanley points out, yesterday’s results show “Ukip have helped to smash the BNP … by providing a non-racist Right-wing alternative.”

Given the Tory party’s drift to the left under David Cameron, many on the right hope that pressure from UKIP and its voters will force the Conservatives to live up to their name again. The fear among Tories, however, is that UKIP will do to them what the center-left Lib Dems (in their various incarnations) did to Labour in the ’80s, siphoning away enough votes from the ideological base to permit the other major party to win—without the minor party picking up enough seats in Parliament to be a viable coalition partner. The likeliest outcome of UKIP-Tory fratricide is Labour victory. Think of, say, the Tea Party or the religious right breaking off from the GOP. The rump Republican Party would still be torn between going right to reclaim its lost base or trying to cobble together a centrist majority or plurality in general elections. Certainly there are Republicans who feel that shorn of the likes of Christine O’Donnell and Todd Akin, the party could win a few seats it’s lost in recent years."

I don't know anything about the British tea party but there is no way they are as full of **** as the American version.

They'd actually be worse by your standards, given the fact leftist policies have basically destroyed their country, whereas the TPers here are trying to stop it from ever getting as bad as GB
