Yep. Green issues, the real ones, will be the big picture in years to come, but first of all needs to be sorting out of domestic affairs. Streamlining the system, getting everyone, within reason, on the same page. if people don't like being reasonable they should be shown the door.

 

Those Farage 'protestors'. Did themselves a lot of harm with that nonsense. He's had a few dodgy things to say, but to attack him in a pub lunch? And who hasn't said the odd thing they've regretted or changed their mind about later on?

 

Green issues will consume our lives soon, and rightly so. The Green party though are just a joke in its current format.

 

I really like the vid of the farage attackers getting a taste of their own medicine. Its funny how cowardly they became, I don't think they'll be trying that again now they know it can come back to bite them like that. They attacked farage in front of his wife and kids who were scared ****less, and yet when the papers got hold of it they treated it like a joke. Its as if all morals go out of the window when you dissagree with someone, or in the case of the media- are paid by someone else.

Hmm Romanians and Australians are both by and large Caucasian? I'll dig out the stats in a bit.

 

I'm confused about your statement on military and trading.

Firstly, we are a permanent member of the UN Security Council. We carry a vito too, I believe. Near the top of tree defence wise. And we got nukes! Whatever your view on the future of trident.

Also, we're in nato, nice. We can share deals on the purchase of arms with European bros.

 

Not sure how voting ukip will change much of this in a large way?

 

Regarding trade, we are member of the European single market, the largest single market on the planet. that's big trade wise at the moment. Perhaps not in the future? Who knows.

Don't forget the common agricultural policy. I need a pint before I go into that.

 

I understand people's frustration with some of the issues that we have to deal with as a nation, although it does depend on where you live perhaps?

However, I think a vote for UKIP is a vote to push us in the wrong direction. A reactionary protest vote?

I am a member of a Commonwealth network that promotes the Commonwealth and is working towards free movement within the Commonwelath as well as other things.

 

Military wise we will help each other out but that is as far as it goes at the moment, we would like to see that go much further and have a united force, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc combined would be a formidable force when combined, this is what I and many others here and in those countries would like to see.

 

As for UKIP and what they have to do with this is fairly easy, they are the ONLY party that wants stronger ties with our Commonwealth family, the rest do and have always completely ignored them.

 

Agriculture, really? the EU has destroyed farming in this country, I come from a farming background and know many farmers.

Posh

You say they should be here at least 2 years before they claim benefits etc. I don't agree with that. I have to work 50 years & put in before I get a crappy state pension. They should not get any benefits. You come to work if not go home. Sorry if this sounds strong but that's what I think. Work & pay your way or go home. To many oaps & "British people" need that money not slvaski & milovaov living in Warsaw.

I was joking about Diwrnach

I am serious about not being part of the dictatorship run by Brussels though

The commonwealth is a lot better prospect imo

They should be our partners considering they are part of the commonwealth

It amazes me that they aren't already

Instead we let anyone in from any european country no matter what they do or don't contribute

This is the thing, the second you mention immigration everyone goes "Oh you are racist and will send everyone home and will close the borders and never let anyone in again EVER" that isn't what we are saying, we want controlled immigration, with the pick of who we do and don't want, we want control of our borders, I don't see why that is such a hard thing for some to grasp or why it is seen as such a terrible thing.

Because some people are sheep and believe the twaddle our governments tell them rather than thinking about it for themselves

Its always good to see what other countries think of our politics, as they in many ways are the most impartial, as well as offering a different viewpoint. Americans love Farage, but this is what the Canadians think;

Talk to any of the older generation when doing your round. How many moan about Asians and Muslims? Quite a few round these parts.

That is brilliant, I think it was that speech, or maybe one of his earlier EU speeches that gave me the respect for him
