Subject: RE: BS: Whither now England?
Musket, as I said the three unionist parties voted tactically to ensure the UKIP member won. When his address was read out at the declaration, the public laughed as he gave his address as London! The whole UKIP setup in Scotland was laughable with infighting and slagging matches so I am waiting to see their candidate unravelling. UKIP's share of the Scottish vote was just over 10% and only narrowly beat the Green Party who had no great media support. UKIP was never off the TV in Scotland unlike the SNP and Greens. Some people have spoken in favour of UKIP as is their democratic right with a little help from their Labour, Tory and Liberal friends .. but it will be regretted. Their message is pure poison but Scotland no doubt has its share of poisonous, xenophobic louts. But at least, Musket, UKIP were only fourth in Scotland while the SNP won the Scottish election by topping the polls ... not bad for a government in its 7th year.
