One of the biggest misconceptions I keep hearing across all the media platforms, from all the parties is this one… "Vote UKIP Get Labour"
It’s quite amazing it seems to be the one common agreement Labour, Conservatives and Lib Dems have at that moment and for me it clearly shows just how closely knit these three political parties are today.
The real truth of the matter is, in the 2010 General Election neither Labour nor Conservative managed to gain a majority and that was when there were only three parties in the running. So think about it logically for a moment, what real chance do either of them have now that UKIP is there to make it four in the running and both Labour and Conservatives have lost a lot of support. Another coalition is the most probable outcome of the 2015 General Election, Lab/Con/Lib all know this already, so why this repetitive lie that voting UKIP will let Labour in ?
Are they saying this because they are worried that UKIP might gain a majority? Of course not, it is blatantly obvious to anyone with any knowledge of politics that UKIP cannot possibly win in 2015, not with the First Past The Post system we have here in Britain. What it is really about is the political elite of this country have seen what UKIP do in the EU Parliament, they find out everything they can and tell the people the truth about what is going on. This just happens to be the one thing they definitely do not want UKIP doing in the House of Commons and will do everything they can to ensure that doesn’t happen. As we are currently witnessing by the smear campaigns against UKIP on a daily basis, right across the nation. Even Hope Not Hate, who happens to be a government and union funded group, have produced leaflets to try and convince the voting public not to vote for UKIP.
I can almost sense some of you reading this and thinking, well if UKIP can’t win why bother voting for them. Well what you are actually voting for when you tick the UKIP box on the ballot paper is 'CHANGE'. UKIP have created the mallet to break mould but it will always be down to the people to pick it up and swing it with such force to smash that Westminster Bubble once and for all. That bubble is the real problem with politics today and it is that which the political elite sit inside totally disconnected from the voting public. Bursting it will force politicians to listen and work for those who elect them into power, the way it really should be. Isn’t that something worth voting for?
If you seriously want change for the better in British politics then vote for the only party that is offering it, Lab/Con/Lib are all quite happy with the way things are.
Now if that doesn’t convince you that you have the power to make a difference. Just spend seven minutes of your life listening to this man, Pat Condell.
