Skip to comments.'UK Tea Party' Surges to Become Country's 'Most Favoured' Political Movement
Posted on 01/27/2014 4:25:57 PM PST by markomalley
Nigel Farage's right-wing UK Independence Party (UKIP) has once again rocked the British political establishment by coming first in a recent poll which quizzed Brits on their feelings towards the four main political parties.
While UKIP hasn't yet mustered up any elected members of the UK Parliament, the party this week registered as Britain's most favoured political organisation, scoring 27 percentage points ahead of the left-wing Labour Party's 26 and the Conservative Party's 25 percent.
UKIP is also expected to take a huge chunk of seats at the upcoming European Parliamentary elections in May, promising more Eurosceptic Members (MEPs) who will no doubt argue for a return of sovereignty to national governments across the continent, away from the bureaucratic talons of the European Union.
Recently, The Economist referred to UKIP as Britain's Tea Party, a nod towards the party's libertarian leanings. Nigel Farage once again upset the UK establishment this week by calling for a repeal of the UK's ban on handguns, initially introduced in 1996 after the mass shooting in Dunblane, Scotland.

GO UKIP! We on this side of the pond encourage you to fight on to victory! You can make Britain Great again! Many people support you and your aims.
Good for you UKIP.
Here's a Youtube clip of him absolutely destroying the bureaucratic parasites in Brussels earlier this year:
My British son-in-law is conflicted on the UKIP.
He, being a hard left Labour type guy thinks that at some level they are racist but he hates the EU.
It is an interesting situation politically because the UKIP seems to have co-opted some issues from both the Right and the Left.
He knows the Incestuous relationship between Government and Business.
...I'll be back for breakfast!
Red Dwarf Ping!

|Woo hoo!! And the first 29% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
Scary is that we have folks on here who think the EU is a good thing....Anyone supporting the protestors in Ukraine sure think so
Obviously a lot of Brits have wisened up. Hope UKIP enjoys further success. Soverignty is much better than Globalism
A FYI PING.
UKIP are good folks.
From what I can tell, it’s not so black and white in the Ukraine. The protesters want to sell out to the EU, their president wants to sell the country back to Russia.
The best they can hope for is that neither Russia nor the UN decide to get involved in some kind of “peacekeeping” mission, if you get my drift.
No one ever called you Ace. Ace Hole maybe...
Already decided to go Ukip for the EUro elections.
Still undecided about the General Election; if Cameronovitch stays as tory leader then ukip it is, if not then reevaluation required.
The problem is our local MP is very good, it’s the party leader they bring with them that so often seems to ‘suck’.
No, no one ever called me Ace. Sherlock, yes. but not Ace, and I would be so insulted at the Ace Hole comment. In fact, I don’t care for you mentioning it.
Sorry, just a quote from Red Dwarf. No offense intended.
None taken, Sweetie!!!
