    1p a pint , war with Germany if they are up for it, Polish bricklayers to brick up the channel tunnel with British bricks and South Thanet to be the new capital of the UK. Common sense ;-)

    Not impossible that to form a government after the next election might require a three-way coalition. But would it be:

    Tory
    Liberal-Democrat
    UKIP

    or would it be:

    Labour
    Tory
    UKIP

    1. Labour, though probably the Conservatives will win again. UKIP will troll the political system as usual but not get anywhere.

    2. Meh. Basically all the parties will unite against UKIP. Should be easy enough to put together a government.

    3. Will be the economy and immigration.

    Labour would never join with UKIP, it would be political suicide. Could see the conservatives doing it, but they would lose a lot of votes to Labour the election after this one.

    Not if the voters are reminded how Labour treated the schoolgirls in the industrial heartlands, the very places that labour had the most support. Rochdale and Rotherham will never forgive the labour politicians for what happened on their watch, nor will they be soothed by cries of we did not know either

    It is unfortunate that England has found ethnic nationalism and sure my daughter was worried that we would need to build a wall to keep the neo nazi's out. However I still trust the majority of English will keep these losers at bay. They (UKIP) are losing in the polls and last I looked not expected to get any seats.
    Labour lead falls as Greens hit 20-year high in Guardian ICM poll Politics The Guardian

    Seems the most favourite coalition is Labour/SNP/Greens. (above article) Fine with me.

    The rise in the SNP for a Westminster is due to Labour being perceived as letting down it's heartlands at the Independence vote. The are now called the red tories.

    The SNP do not want a Tory Government. They intend on being in a coalition with Labour. I will be quite happy if the Greens also are in it - that way we may at last have an opportunity to pull the UK back from her ever further move to the right.

    There would be a vote on Independence again if the UK voted to come out of the EU but the majority of Scot's voted to stay in which is expected.

    Might be fine with you but many English no longer trust any of these parties, we need a strong nationalist party to stand up for English/British rights. Far too long we have been at the mercy of neo Marxists who sold our souls and innocents for a hand full of votes. They destroyed the NHS, Education, Police and such like by cronyism. The people will remember that the greens want everyone to run around barefoot in homes with no heating or lighting while turbines destroy the countryside. They will also remember the threats made by the SNP when it looked like they were not going to get their own way. Why should M.P's elected for Scotland be voting on matters that only concern England, when English M.P's cant vote on Scottish matters. Labour has no idea on how to run a charity bookstall never mind a country, and they will just raise taxes until everyone is unemployed and destitute. Then give the country to the immigrants to destroy as they want.

    We had 13 years of living under a nanny state we don't want it again. Just as we don't want the country to end up like Greece and be bankrupt because that is what will happen. Under the Tories we have seen a light that is getting brighter, under your coalition we would see darkness and no way out
