UKIP

Isn't that the far right political party in the UK?
Some, including the media, would have it so. In addition, because it has been painted as a racist right-wing party, many right-wing racists have been tempted to join or support it.

However, it is far more centrist than portrayed. For example, the manifesto at either the last election or the one before (I forget which) included making hospital parking free, a very socialist policy and not exactly what you'd expect of a far right party.
 
Trying to discern the whose, whose of British politics without some visual aids can be a royal PITA.

So Farge is not the leader of the UKIP?

He is one of Trumps pals, which means he will be on his way to Gitmo at some point.

Farage isn't leader of UKIP any more, the new leaders have been a rum bunch that have done the party no credit. I have no idea why he should identify with Trump, possibly because they both campaigned as the 'alternative' to established party politics.

It is now. It was bad enough under Farage but under new management it seems to have attracted the looney tunes. Which is why it never gets elected to parliament.
European Parliament was one thing, but they're sort of fussy about Westminster.

Well I don't think they are burning crosses, but you Brits are more inclined to tilt to the left in all things political.

We do have our right wing nutters, who seem to be crawling out of the wreckage these days. Usually loners and losers, they're a strange bunch who seem very fond of Adolf and the Nazis.

Even our left isn't that hard left, Corbyn and his cronies being something of an anomaly. The return of one Derek Hatton into the fold may not do them a lot of good.


The far left aren't really that popular. Look at the current polls it's like Donald and Hilary. Hilary couldn't get ahead in the polls. A decent opposition should be leaving this government for dead. Yet there are times when the options May, Corbyn and don't know for best PM. Corbyn came last.
The American definition of left wing is sometimes scary.

The Left wing is pretty scary here...Universal health care and a green revolution...with so many restrictions on everything...
 
You'll have to be gentle. This is a nation who thinks an ancient national monument is a building built before double glazing.
the Dutch lottery is older than the USA
 
Don't you think it is a good idea to know what they want the money for, so you can use that against them and to your own benefit?
We've agreed, to cough up and will, once we get round to leaving. They'll use it to lower budget all round or for special one off's, Who cares?
