Thread Name: BS: Whither now England?
Subject: RE: BS: Whither now England?
Akenaton, I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean by "Interesting Jim, never thought an admirer of McDairmid would be have any truck with faux liberalism or political correctness."
Living in a stable does not make me a horse and I opposed apartheid in South Africa while living in Scotland. I don't think one can judge the mood of Scottish people by living in one part of it. I watch the Scottish news and read all the Scottish rags every day and correspond regularly with political groups so I think I have a fair knowledge.
My politics in a nutshell: Scottish Independence first.

Back to the thread, Stu makes many good points but when the English voter looks for an alternative to Tory, Labour or Liberal they see UKIP and vote accordingly for some of the reasons Stu points out. Where is the vision for a new, fresh England? Getting out of the EU and blaming immigrants for the lack of housing or job opportunities? And by the way Musket, the West Lothian question, Trident and the House of Lords all disappear with Independence. Maybe if there was an English party which advocated and believed in these policies, UKIP might disappear.
