Oh, how ironic! The man who dismissed us as irrelevant and called us fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists seems to have need of us. To those Conservatives who are now adherents of, or are considering voting for, UKIP he makes a plea for them to ‘return home’. What a confounded cheek! I can’t speak for others but I am now comfortably at home with UKIP – and I’ll not be moving any time soon.

You can sense Cameron’s desperation but don’t be tempted, don’t be fooled. For all his expensive education and privileged background, that man has shown remarkable ineptitude during his time as Prime Minister. Most of his 2010 election pledges are in tatters: immigration is out of control; he continues to allow responsibilities to move to Brussels; our national debt has soared into the trillions; our armed forces are depleted and demoralised; recall of MPs never happened; he knows he stands little chance of meaningful renegotiations of our EU membership terms thus rendering his 2017 referendum commitment void. However, among all these major failings he still found time to destroy the time-honoured and long understood meaning of marriage.  Yet, given this miserable record, he seriously thinks we should give credence to what he is saying now. No, for me he’s no longer to be trusted, he’s not to be believed. My good opinion, once lost, is lost forever.

The fractured and potentially destabilising political situation in this country is largely of his own making, as outlined in my article, “Cowardly Cameron creates crisis for the UK”. His increasing fear of our party, which he routinely condemned, and the task of tackling its leader, who he dreads, has opened this can of worms. I thought it appropriate to set into context the raw statistics of the component parts of the UK to show how the first-past-the-post system can no longer be considered appropriate for the current political scene:

If the SNP, with its intensely self-centred agenda, does as well as predicted and props up a Labour administration which lacks an overall majority, it must be wrong for a regional party, empowered by a minority vote, to dictate terms to the UK out of all proportion to its geography and population. Another travesty would be if UKIP polled well in percentage terms but did not get the seats to which that should ordinarily entitle them. UKIP believes in the United Kingdom but it will also be the voice for England, which at present is so glaringly absent. I’ve heard quite enough from the Caledonian Commissar and the Cambrian Complainant. As for the Gormless Greens…

The UKIP manifesto has received approval from several quarters and is, in my opinion, a solid piece of work for progress and hope. To waverers at this election I would remind them of this; if only about 300 Conservative voters had voted UKIP in last year’s Heywood and Middleton by-election, there would have been a UKIP MP representing them, having caused a spectacular defeat for Labour in one of their fiefdoms. It can be done so, people of Britain, when casting your vote this time give us that chance; to Kippers elsewhere I say stand fast. We are relevant, we are important and we can make a difference. UKIP is Undaunted, Keen, Indefatigable and Patriotic.

Believe in UKIP as UKIP believes in Britain; think UKIP, vote UKIP, get UKIP on 7th May.
