No vote is wasted

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

ON Satur­day, mem­bers of the all-in­clu­sive, equal­i­ty­first, holier than thou Labour party at­tended a so­cial­ist-sup­port­ing rally in Birm­ing­ham.

For once, though, they weren’t crow­ing about this multi-cul­tural event all over so­cial me­dia.

The likes of Labour front benchers Jack Dromey – aka Mr Har­riet Har­man – and Tom Wat­son were oddly quiet on the Twit­ter and Face­book front.

Maybe that was be­cause the au­di­ence at the Is­lamic com­mu­nity cen­tre in Hodge Hill was seg­re­gated – with women shunted to one side.

Which isn’t very “equal” to me.

As ever with the Labour party, it is a case of “do as I say, not as I do”.

A party preach­ing equal­ity that hap­pily sits among and ad­dresses an au­di­ence that puts fe­males in a dif­fer­ent class. YOU wouldn’t ex­pect me not to say “please vote for UKIP in the Gen­eral Elec­tion on Thurs­day” – but I’m go­ing to ex­plain why, too.

The UK In­de­pen­dence Party has done more to re­align the po­lit­i­cal sys­tem in Great Bri­tain than any other in the last half cen­tury. How so? We’ve made the so-called ma­jor par­ties ac­tu­ally THINK.

We’ve also made them – forced them through public sup­port – to do some­thing that re­ally doesn’t come nat­u­rally. Which is to make them LIS­TEN to the peo­ple who put them into of­fice. The peo­ple who pay their wages, meet all their ex­penses, and right­fully ex­pect

on the back of that for their views to be con­sid­ered at the most up­per­most reaches of power.

Yes – that’s YOU. A tax­payer. A per­son of opin­ion. Some­one who cares one way or the other. A voter.

Un­like other par­ties, UKIP likes vot­ers. We re­spect vot­ers.

Your opin­ion is just as im­por­tant, just as valid, as mine.

UKIP’s aim is to put ev­ery man and woman of this coun­try back in charge of pol­i­tics.

Away from David Cameron’s self-serv­ing Toffs.

Away from Red Ed Miliband’s cham­pagne-quaffing so­cial­ists.

Away from what­ever it is Nick Clegg says he stands for to­day.

Just the way it should be – pol­i­tics for, and by, the peo­ple.

And in do­ing so, UKIP re­ally has changed the po­lit­i­cal con­ver­sa­tion.

For­get the noise you hear from the rest of them and think about this.

With­out UKIP, all you would hear now is Labour bang­ing on about the NHS which they them­selves started pri­vatis­ing – in­stead of the un­con­trolled im­mi­gra­tion prob­lem which Labour now ad­mits it cre­ated.

With­out UKIP, the Tories would still be pre­tend­ing it wasn’t their mates in the banks who bug­gered up the na­tion’s fi­nances, when of course it was.

But now – thanks to UKIP – there is real con­ver­sa­tion tak­ing place in board­rooms, uni­ver­sity boards, unions and bars, about where this na­tion is headed.

The fu­ture of our membership of the Euro­pean Union is now a ques­tion fi­nally on the drawing board – but only, ONLY be­cause UKIP pressed for it to be there.

Five years ago, at the last gen­eral elec­tion, which no-one won, re­mem­ber, no mat­ter what David Cameron likes to think, we were clearly a na­tion di­vided. I think that’s changed. UKIP is not go­ing to be form­ing a Gov­ern­ment on Fri­day morn­ing.

But it IS go­ing to be in­flu­enc­ing the way pol­i­tics works in this coun­try and that is be­cause of YOU, the voter.

Don’t lis­ten to yawn­ing old ar­gu­ments about wasted votes. There re­ally is no such thing.

Ev­ery sin­gle vote for UKIP has helped to change the dia­logue of this coun­try – and for the bet­ter, too. So, yes, please – vote UKIP. And get your­self heard.
