Welcome back kids, today I wrote an email to Ukip, that loving party, and without further ado here it is.
After reading your manifesto there are several points which have caught my eye and that I have not been to sure whether they are even viable and some which seem a bit ignorant.
“Save up to £120bn a year by leaving the EU. No British jobs or trade will be lost” I feel people seem to forget that we are part of Europe, just because we are not on the mainland and seems to have an over hyped sense of self worth about our country. We need the EU otherwise we will just become the insignificant little country that we are.
“End abuse of the UK asylum system and expel Islamic extremists” You mention Islamic extremists there, what about Catholic extremists, Jewish extremists, Christian and any other religion you care to think of. You cannot just target one certain religion. There have been many times that I walk down my local high street to hear Christian preachers yelling to tell me that gay people are wrong and any one that’s not christian is wrong, but I know free speech works both ways they have their right to say what they want and I have the right to reply, not to just say they have no right to be here, that’s what living in a free society means.
“Introduce a ‘Three Strikes and You’re Out’ law to lock up career criminals for good” This has been used in America now for a number of years and it clearly doesn’t work. Essentially people could be put away for life for frivolous crimes. It’s not about locking people up it’s about finding the route of why people do what they do and fixing that.
“Keep Britain’s independent nuclear deterrent strong” Keep it for what reason exactly? Yes other countries who previously have not had nuclear weapons are developing them, but this country cannot complain about others having these weapons while being in possession them.
“Oppose wind farms in general and require them to be funded by the market” I do not understand the offence people take with wind farms, we need to start using these types of resources other than those that will eventually run out. Now is the time to be investing in wind farms, solar panels, tidal energy and other types like this.
“End support for multiculturalism and promote one shared British culture for all” The world today is a multicultural one, with technology bringing everyone closer together, and this is a good thing. How can we expect to move on as a race, and I mean the whole human race as a whole, if we all stay in our own separate cultures.
“Scrap political correctness in public affairs” Political correctness always annoys me, mainly because it doesn’t exist. It’s call politeness and when did this become a bad thing.
Thank you for reading this email and it would be nice to get a reply explaining more on some of these parts of your manifesto.
Remember you can join in with this, just go onto their websites, have a quick read through their manifestos, believe me their manifestos aren’t that long, and then send off an email. As yet I have had no reply from the English democrats
There’s still time to enter yesterdays competition and win that mystery prize, I’m gonna make it a good prize. So far I’ve had one entry and that was my brother. Simply give me a strange disease and my favourite will be the title for saturday nights blog. Cheers for stopping by.
