Why Cameron got onto this survey I will never know,Nicola came out best because she is prepared to change the way politics are run in Britain ,the main parties want the status quo,which just does not work for the country.

Nigel Farage is the only person telling the truth and that is why he gets shouted down so much. If we don't get out of the EU we will lose what little sovereignty we have left and the United States of Europe led by Angela Merkel will be in charge and who we vote for in domestic elections won't matter much. We signed up to a trading agreement originally, Ted Heath told blatant lies, but now we are dictated to by the most undemocratic organisation on the planet. It is a complete fallacy to say we need to stay in for our exports because we can still trade with all of Europe as many other countries do from outside of the EU, and we can trade with the rest of the world which we have been neglecting for years.
It is rubbish for Cameron to suggest that anything can be renegotiated, Juncker (who elected him by the way?) has made it clear that is not possible. Everyone signed the Maastrict Treaty and that's that. The free movement of people is not negotiable and you ain't seen nothing yet. Just wait until Turkey join. Cameron has sworn to help them get in! Can you imagine?
In UKIP we are tired of being called racists by others who are desperately worried about the depth of our support around the country. We are not racist but we are against uncontrolled immigration because we are a small island and not only do we not have room for all these people, our public services cannot cope with the extra demand either. France and Germany are much bigger countries than we are, it is ridiculous for them to expect us to be able to deal with such huge numbers of people who want to come here. The fact that they do proves the contempt they have for us.
It is a lie to say that immigrants make a net contribution to this country, that just isn't possible until they cannot claim any benefits before paying tax and national insurance for a few years when they first live here. They have been sending child benefit money home that they've claimed here for children who don't even live here for goodness sake! The politically correct nonsense surrounding this entire subject must be ditched if we are to face up to the realities of our situation. The Labour party originally, and now others, simply suck up to immigrants to get their votes. Labour opened the flood gates for this very reason. We must have an Australian style points system here so that we can control the numbers and quality of those coming in. To do that we have to leave the EU.
The Tories have increased the nations debt by a far greater amount than even the Labour party did. How they can brag about being in control of it beggars belief. UKIP are the only party who have an independently costed manifesto. Why, after decades of boom and bust would anyone want to vote for more of the same? That's what you'll get if you vote Tory or Labour. The Green's manifesto, if you take the trouble to read it, is quite frightening in it's madness. They say they want many more immigrants. The Green's would bankrupt us with 3 years. The Lib Dems are history.
We need real change in Britain. The only party offering that is UKIP. If we all vote UKIP we can give the old guard the massive kick in the backside that they deserve. This is the best chance we've ever had to show them that the ordinary people of this country have had enough of career politicians just out for themselves and sod the rest. We can do this, together. Please vote UKIP.

Nigel Farage is standing in the general election for the South Thanet seat. I don't think he's trying to impress anyone by going in pubs, he just likes a pint.
At least he has a lot of experience working in the real world outside of politics which he did for many years, unlike many in the Conservative and Labour party who left Oxbridge/Eaton and became career politicians straight away. What the hell do they know about making it in the world of work as an employee when they've never even had a proper job interview.

I detect a lull in the UKIP camp since the defectors won seats....could be that , as I say, voters will be wondering why their Leader is leaving it so late to be elected.

Truth to tell, there is not one Politician I would vote for, the Labour MP where I live, but unfortunately Wales does not command much sway in decision making.

This idea of T.V. debate is I presume to save going door to door canvassing or splashing out on leaflets. Gone are the days when General Elections had high turnouts , personally the only person I would vote for is Boris, behind the buffoonery is a caring man.

Green Party want to increase Child Benefit and say that it is up to individuals to decide how many children they have! Is this a costed plan? To go back to a sustainable world we need to reduce populations. The reason that so many animals have died during Natalie Bennett's 40 year life (50% to quote her) is largely due to the increase in human population all over the world and also in this country. Killed on roads by increasing traffic, habitats destroyed by development, human creation of greenhouse gases by consumption killing off food stocks, I could go on. More people = fewer animals (and birds) it's obvious! Green Party logic does not stack up.
And as for taking mgage relief off private landlords - don't get me started. This is a business like any other so why not prevent other businesses claiming tax relief on loan interest. Have the Greens thought what impact this would have on the supply of rental ppty? Landlords would pull out overnight. And where does Nat get her stats from? She claims that landlords get profits into 1000% - I barely scrape 3.5%. Crazy stuff!

I do not know how any right thinking person could vote for David Cameron and the Tory party. Cameron uses people and services for his own ends, he came to St Mary Abbott's Church for six months so that his daughter could attend the church school. The school has an excellent reputation but Cameron has deprived a child from a less wealthy family a place. When his poor son Ivan was alive Cameron used St Mary's hospital as a private hospital but without paying private hospital fees. When asked if we would talk at the Epilepsy UK party held at the House of Commons he agreed to be the speaker. People from all over Britain came with women in their best clothes to hear him but he walked in, spoke to my husband and that said "I am very busy and haven't the time to talk". You can imagine the disappointment of those who had travelled so far and for nothing. Cameron is a selfish and greedy man who wishs for power but at the expense of others.

I don't think it is bad form to point out that David Cameron says that his daughter is not privately educated and yet take a valuable place in a Church school, passing 27 churches from where the Camerons then lived, denying a poorer family a place within the parish is wrong. I merely mentioned that he treated St Marys Hospital as a private hospital when he could easily have had private treatment and allowed those who were not wealthy to access the services of the NHS.

He has recently stated that agricultural workers (ie low paid from Eastern Europe) would still be allowed to come on temporary permits with health insurance.

Got it in one janetann. This nation has people who think they are owed a living and are quite content to be paid in benefits. This should not be possible. Those who refuse a job should only be prevented from starving by being issued with food vouchers.
The agricultural workers who come here for the harvests are not afraid to bend their backs and their capability to do so exceeds that of our own relatively unskilled so-called workers. We cannot blame the farmers for employing those who can do the job best?
We can, however blame ourselves for a generation or two of people who simply do not know how to work and they don't need to, do they? There are always benefits.
Don't get me started!

I agree Simon Sugrue. Credit is the name of the game, having worked in NHS Clinics, I saw the waste ,teenagers given contraceptives , the boys blew theirs up like balloons and the girls never bothered because they knew if the got pregnant they would have a 2 bedroom House and get all benefits available. A new department was opened at the Clinic calles "Sure Start",
Pregnant girls being housed would have helpers from the Clinic go to their homes to teach them how to Cook.....like there are not enough Books and T.V. programmes available???


Another example of NHS generosity was in a Clinic with a high area of mostly Muslims. The Clinic employed 7 Women who could speak various languages to accompany the person who could not speak English to the Dotor, Lawyer, Hospital etc....like these people could not have relatives or Friends who spoke English to take them???

No wonder th NHS is in such a mess.

What made me sit up was when Cameron stated that zero hour contracts would be abolished then went on to say that those on these contracts in Wales will have a rise in the minimal wage. One has to have a good memory when making statements like this. Another thing the amount of funding being ploughed into city hospitals such as Liverpool is great for those living in these areas . However even though I am all for improving the health service across the whole of the UK , it seems to be a post code lottery with some areas having to fight to keep their hospitals open.

Hi Simon,
The article just highlights one of the many issues I have with various politicians and their 'untruths'. In my area we have had a Labour MP for many years and every other party is a poor second. The only party that may stand a chance of beating the Labour candidate is UKIP and I only see them as a protest vote and unfortunately not a proper political party with a valid manifesto and realistic policies. I have no faith in the two major parties and their respective leaders, so, as you have said, may have to vote for the party I least dislike.
Steve.

Simon, I agree totally that it all depends on a person's point of view and as long as they can back up their decision by sensible discussion and debate, that is what I like about politics. We are are all different and have our own beliefs and opinions. It puts me off when people just repeat the same old opinions and soundbites, plus have a totally blinkered view of a political party's direction. I personally believe that we have a chance in this election to change things to possibly get away from the stale, traditional Tory vs Labour option. The world is changing (too quickly sometimes) and as a country we have got to change accordingly and have a positive future for my grand children's generation. We should all vote and be comfortable with our convictions, I unfortunately cannot decide who to vote for locally.

I am quite sick of the election coverasgfe by the media already and we've still got a month to go. The majority of people will be voting as theory always have and the floating voter is a bit of a myth. The debates will do nothing to change people's attitude and political beliefs - if you are a Tory supporter, you are not going to do a 180 degree turn and vote for the Labour party and vice versa. I think this debate showed how limited this country is when it comes electing the 'new' Government. It really boils down to further austerity measures under the Tories or slightly less austerity under Labour and possible tax increases. There is no vast difference in the two main parties. Remember, Thatcher said that Blair was one of her greatest successes. I just don't understand that iuf this Coalition's plans are working and the country is back on its feet, in one of the most wealthiest countries in the world why children are going to school unfed, working people are having to use food banks, old people cannot afford to heat and eat, young people cannot afford to purchase a home of their own. There are a lot of people who believe that the country is recovering well but is it?

Here's a fact regarding our present government, make your own mind up. All statistics easily available from the Office for National Statistics and the OECD.
Myth: Austerity has reduced the government's debt.
Fact: This government has borrowed more in 4 years (over £430 billion) than Labour did in 13 years (£429 billion). The conclusion must be that austerity has failed.

I was very impressed though with Nicola Sturgeon..clever..BUT they are very left wing and just want to borrow money and do not believe in individuals creating wealth which will pull the UKs economy up.

I think you've hit the nail on the head there. Why is it when an British person expresses any concern regarding immigration and the abuses of our NHS or Benefits we are immediately marked as racist . Regardless of the cost no one even touched on the fact that there are now thousands of non British HIV people living in this country that could spread that most terrible illness. I wonder if they would have been so Blasé if it had been Ebola .

The women all talked more sense than the men. A SNP/Plaid Cymru/Green Coalition for me!

Wanting to break the UK up is talking sense is it. I don't think so.

If we all had our heads screwed on right the Greens are the right party. If we don't look after the environment we are all doomed. Why do we want growth, growth , growth at all costs. We need to be comfortable but common we don't all need 2 cars do we?
