This will all depend on how serious the voters are when it comes time for national elections, rather than local council elections. UKIP can’t carry out much of their platform from the local council (think city or county council in the US, which is what this weeks elections were). If, and it’s a big if, they can pick up any seats in Parliament (currently UKIP hold none) they might start to have some say in EU relations, immigration, etc. It will be interesting to see what a larger national election turnout does to their chances, and if many here really want out of the eu. Currently, the free trade shengen travel (open borders for holiday and business travel) and investment into and out of the UK are more popular to Brits than a return to isolation. The Tories need to figure out a compromise to tighten immigration and keep the benefits of membership. A referendum on exitinformation the eu would fail as of today, and UKIP doesn’t offer much more than that in their talking points.
Rubio, McCain, and Lindsey Grahamnesty are equally liberal as David Cameron and the worst of the European Socialists.
The Republican leadership is completely infected with the European Socialism bug. I only wish someone like Nigel was here to slap the GOP liberals around.
No kidding. The Manchester Guardian leftists couldn’t wish for a more compliant Tory party.
