I am glad to see Nigel emphasising two things: the first is that these Euro-elections should be, as he puts it, "the referendum that we never had." As readers will know, I entirely agree with him: sure, you can go and vote Tory at the General Election if you like, but at these Euro-elections, send those self-same Tories a big, fat fucking message about the direction that you would like them to head towards—the direction that you demand that they head towards—as concerns the EU, i.e. it shouldn't fucking exist but, given that it does, we want no part of the political and bureaucratic aspects of it.
The second point is one that I have urged Nigel to adopt ever since I first met him, two years ago. I said that UKIP came over as an overwhelmingly negative party: it was the party that was forever saying "no".
I maintained that this had to change, that people were scared of the idea of leaving the EU and UKIP had to be able to paint a positive picture of how a Britain outwith the EU would not merely cope, but be actively greater, more free and more prosperous than it is now. And so it is excellent to see the Party Leader adopting this stance: good for him.
So, at the Euro-elections, kill two birds with one stone: tell Spam precisely what you fucking want and tell the EU to fuck off—vote UKIP.
