Another hilariously out-of-touch tirade against UKIP, this time from Harry Phibbs of the Daily Mail. Phibbs just doesn't seem to grasp the fact that UKIP is a Party that wants Britain to leave the EU. No negotiation, no reform. We believe fundamentally that a reformist approach as proposed by the Conservatives is useless, especially from a Party that fully supports EU membership and wants it to expand in the future so countries like Turkey can join. That is official Tory policy.
Why then would UKIP members like me give a damn if David Cameron is our next Prime Minister or not? His position of seeking renegotiation has no value or appeal to those supporting UKIP like me. If anything, Nick Clegg's support for an in or out EU referendum is more tempting. Much more tempting.
It is also important to point out that Lord Pearson raised the ire of many within the Party by standing down and supporting those with the guts to publicly support EU withdrawal. Phillip Davies, Douglas Carswell and Phillip Hollobone, the only Tory MPs who openly support UKIP's stance on the EU. They faced no prospect of being ousted by UKIP. What is more, Pearson offered to stand UKIP down at the General Election in return for the promise of a referendum on EU membership from Cameron. David Cameron didn't have the courtesy of bothering to reply and this is the man Harry Phibbs believes UKIP should be pining over?
It is sheer self-indulgent bullshit to insist that a Tory government would do more to placate those who support UKIP's agenda than a Labour or Liberal Democrat one would. We want an EU referendum, grammar schools, flat tax and so many other things that none of the LibLabCon are offering. David Cameron, Gordon Brown, Nick Clegg, it doesn't matter. We are busy working towards a UKIP government.
