Unless the political establishment of Labour and the Tories gets its act together UKIP is going to build a lot of momentum at the EU elections and be a real factor come the general election. Their current strategy clearly isn't working.
Both political parties are facing up to the reality of their unpopularity. So how are they reacting to this? By listening to people, and adjusting their policies accordingly? Of course not! Labour and the Tories are now aiming for the same thing. To try and get their core vote out enough, so that they can limp over the finish line with 35% of the vote. Thats the sum amount of our political masters ambition nowadays. No vision. No ideology. No appeal to the electorate on social justice. **** all! They just hope that by being not quite as hideously awful as the other lot, they'll win by default, on a record-breakingly low percentage of a record-breakingly low turnout
Its hardly bloody surprising that Farage is doings well, and Alex Salmond north of the border, when faced with this sort of cynicism
