    I hope UKIP wipes the floor with them all. The sooner we are out of this non-consensual political union, the better

    I echo Dean’s comment, I am sure that UKIP will wipe the floor with the other parties. In both the Labour and Tory parties there used to be an honourable place for those who were opposed to political union. These days people with this opinion are shouted down within their own party.

    This is not democracy, the EU is not democratic. As a non party member I will cast my vote for UKIP, the only party that offers an alternative to a Europe controlled by a non-elected political elite. The sooner we have a referendum the better. If the British people wish to remain members of this shambolic European super state I will be very surprised.
