Douglas Carswell tells Ukip to stop blaming foreigners as youth poll shows Farage is even less popular than Clegg
As it is a Sunday: The United Kingdom Independence Party is happy to be seen as a standard bearer in the defense of our liberties and Judeo-Christian Heritage (Nigel Farage) UKIP is the only party that will confidently protect the rights of Christians in the UK and speak out against the attack on our Christian heritage that has developed in this land for nearly 2000 years (Paul Nuttall) There is no other party I believe comes near UKIP in terms of standing up for the truth and real issues today. How can we trust David Cameron, whose agendas are not those he was voted to pursue, and seems intent on betraying this Country and its Christian heritage in many ways. Like many in the UK today, I have grown to trust and respect Nigel Farage and other UKIP leaders. Their agendas seem clear, they mean what they say and it seems to me are acting in the interests of our nation.

'We are no longer ruled by those we elect. Instead we are ruled over by an activist bureaucracy' - Douglas Carswell
UKIP are going to be pretty upset when the only parliamentarian they return next year is Douglas Carswell.
Veteran Labour MP Dennis Skinner turned on UKIP's new MP, Mark Reckless, just moments after he was sworn into the Commons. Mr Skinner, pointed at Mr Reckless and his UKIP colleague Douglas Carswell and accused them of wanting to deport foreigners. Earlier this week, Mr Reckless suggested that some EU citizens living in the UK would only be able to stay for a "transitional period" if the UK left the European Union - although he and his party later clarified the comments to say anyone legally in the UK would be able to stay. In a debate on the NHS in the Commons, Mr Skinner said that he had had a "United Nations heart bypass" carried out by a Syrian cardiologist, a Malaysian surgeon, a Dutch doctor and a Nigerian registrar.
Douglas Carswell says there will be "mass defections" of voters on the left and right to Ukip in the general election.

HOPE not hate news: Godfrey Bloom quits Ukip and warns Douglas Carswell of ‘back-stabbers’
history repeating itself? Muslims have invaded the west again, this time under the guise of immigration and westerners are drunk or sleep. This invasion is lot more dangerous, because the victim is not even aware. In the first invasion, the west was awake and able to defend itself. The Europeans had their religion; they clung to it and expelled the enemy. This time, the leftist diseases of political correctness and cultural relativism have left them no moral bones. They don’t know who they are and what they stand for anymore. On the other hand Muslims perfectly know who they are and what they want. Aristotle said nature abhors vacuum. This allows Muslims to fill the void and destroy the western civilization from within. Viruses though small, are more dangerous than a wild beast. The Islamic immigration should be likened to the invasion of viruses. The problem is that the host has lost its immunity. Things are so bad that when Douglas Carswell, a Tory British MP defected to UKIP, in his speech he bragged ...

Godfrey Bloom quits Ukip and sends this astonishing warning to MP Douglas Carswell
274 MPs passed a vote in Parliament yesterday to recognise Palestine as a state just like Israel. But guess what? All the cabinet abstained. And the government stated the vote won't make a blind bit of difference to its policy toward Israel, which is in a nutshell - to support Israel's continuing illegal building of Jewish settlements on occupied Palestinian land; Israel's refusal to lift it's stranglehold blockade on the concentration camp called Gaza. And to condone Israel's massacre of innocent women and children and the destruction of 18,000 homes. The cowardly MPs for predominantly Jewish constituencies, Finchley. Golders Green and Hendon, stayed away from Parliament whilst the vote took place. Thank God for straight-talking, principled politicians like Nigel Farage and Douglas Carswell.

Douglas Carswell and Nigel Farage launch UKIP's big push to make Mark Reckless our second elected MP
UKIP Surge post Clacton A Survation poll for the Mail on Sunday has UKIP on an unbelievable 25% nationally. The poll results do need to be treated with some caution as it was conducted on Friday whilst UKIP was in every newspaper and on every news programme thanks to Douglas Carswell's historic by-election victory in Clacton but even allowing for that, it is a fantastic showing for the party. Survation's analysis makes grim reading for both Cameron and Miliband who would be unable to secure a majority or even form a workable minority government. As Nigel Farage has rightly ruled out a coalition with any party after the next election we could realistically see a ConLab coalition in 2015 as both parties are so similar nowadays on all the major issues or alternatively a minority Labour government supported by UKIP on a supply and demand basis. Without a UKIP majority the future looks pretty grim for the country but with 25% of the vote we could secure as many as 128 MPs which is a sizeable force for good in ...
UKIP wins the Clacton by-election with a greatly increased majority when Douglas Carswell took the plunge from the Tories and swam gratefully towards the lifeboat presented to him by Nigel Farage. That in itself is not an earth shattering event, inasmuch that Carswell was the incumbent member of parliament for the seaside town that has seen better days (The town that is not the Tory toff!!). [ 489 more words. ]
Have just watched Boris Johnson on the Andrew Marr show. A week after saying that UKIP members tended to have sex with vacuum cleaners, he was on his best behaviour. Nothing in the interview with Douglas Carswell he disagreed with. Ukippers wonderful people, almost felt he was going to say, "Yes, I would let my daughter marry one". I couldn't help but notice that Marr didn't ask him about the vacuum cleaner comment. But then I wasn't surprised. When has Marr ever asked hard questions of anyone other than UKIP? Who does Boris think he's kidding? The Tories are running scared, as are Labour. They will say and do anything to try and attract their old voters back. Anything, that is, except listen to them and act on their concerns. Harriet Harman announced a raft of policies identical to UKIP ones, on immigration, but it's not going to work.
