    i wonder where this FAKE news came from - i have posted the actual interview - as plain as day Batten answers the question - Sky asked him 3 times and he answered. He will have asked him for an interview and told him what it would cover - likely they did not mention this. i have seen Batten on the BBC where they are only interested in smearing and ridiculing him and UKIP. The cesspit calling itself the mainstream media is not interested in News - they simply peddle Leftist propaganda. At last i see people who will not apologise and beg before the pond life Press. I pray the Westminster bubble is burst and all the traitors lose their deposits.

    If voting mattered we would not be allowed to vote - the Brexit referendum went against this. In other elections there are candidates to select - you don't get to choose them and in the main they are not important b/c the parties and government are run by a handful of people. In the referendum there was no person to select - it was a binary action decision - leave or stay. We have seen how they have tried to influence the execution of that action as they would influence a successful candidate. We have seen how they are trying to cancel Brexit - It will be almost 3 and a half years in October - i expect they will try to stall it again. The problem is when candidate elections come round. Imagine a general election in the summer - it would be a wipe out for the Tories. i expect the same for Labour. The main issue would be Brexit and neither major party could say they would carry out the decision of the people b/c they had over 1000 days to do this and they did the very opposite. i see Margaret Beckett has proposed presenting Labour as the party of the EU and staying in the EU. There is a logic in this - at least it would be honest but since most Labour voters want Brexit the result would be an annihilation of Labour outside London.
    The problem with political parties is they get infiltrated. UKIP also has the problem of not having a charismatic leader like Farage. The Conservatives don't have a strong leader. Corbyn is weak and the Labour establishment have wanted him out the day he was elected. He has been attacked with this anti-Semitic label - he has or at least had massive membership support and he should have crushed this nonsense without mercy. He hasn't and so it carries on. He should have smothered this anti-Semitism canard at birth. He may have lost financial support for Labour as a result, he might have lost media support and some would have resigned - good - we do not need dual citizen Mud Pies and other agents for Israel having even a scintilla of influence is our nation. Parties are voted in to support the interests of the British people, not foreign governments or corporate interests. This is exactly why people have put two fingers up to the EU. Corbyn would probably have won as much extra support as he would have lost, now he has exposed himself as a Deep State tool after back peddling on years of being anti-EU and the global warming agenda he promotes.
    The Brexit party has struck a cord with the people and we see unprecedented poll results for a political party so new. The establishment will either move to smear and discredit it - or they will move to infiltrate and control it. If you dig deep in UKIP that happened there - whether it applies now as it was seen as a spent force i don't know, but it is seemed to be a threat to the status quo expect the moles to  start digging.  i would vote UKIP and would not be dissuaded by Tommy Robinson, he is just one man - he has a huge amount of support - we are in a democracy or so we are told - if there is huge support those people should be represented.

    i see in a recent UKIP press conference this welcomed Carl Benjamin (Sargon of Akkad) and Mark Meechan, Scottish man who taught his dog to do a Nazi salute when he said Seig Heil or Gas the Jews. Carl got some stick for a recent Tweet when he said he wouldn't rape Labour MP Jess Phillips.
    i was glad to see they are strong on free speech and hate political correctness - i would vote for them simply on those grounds.
    i also took a look at the Brexit Party website - the party is very new so one should give them a lot of leeway but i see no policies. Are we looking at the cult of the personality? In general i agree with UKIP views - i applaud them holding up free speech and the disregard for the Leftist cancer of political correctness. i might disagree with some of what they say but at least someone has the balls to speak out. With the Brexit Party i would have no idea what i was voting for - there is a life after Brexit, indeed it is the life after Brexit that people yearn for.

    Agreed though in the case of immigration, it's something that has never been voted for that has become the reality. It's Euro wide except for a handful of countries that either joined later, or have recently developed the democratic parties and voting blocks to start to reverse it in the case of Italy, Austria, Hungary. I can't see the UK doing the same while brexit is on, too much distraction. 
    We voted for brexit and haven't got that yet. We didn't vote for immigration yet have got rapid demographic change never before seen in our history. The UK first past the post system just keeps us distracted and offers an outlet every few years while the lib/lab/con stay in power, or that's how I see it now.
    When voting changes anything, such as a referendum, they tell us how to vote, and when we don't listen, they ignore the result and just carry on, making the right noises as they go for 3 years. It won't be long before they are telling us it isn't going to happen. Reminds me of the Tory promise to reduce immigration to the tens of thousands, now highest in 15 years which will be quarter of a million or so last year? We have no democratic power in reality, it's always been an illusion.

    Immigration was one of the main reasons for the leave vote. With immigration we see the ruling parties in lock step in their actions if not their words. There are claims it will be controlled but it never is. The ruling powers are deliberately inviting in millions of foreigners. This is entirely deliberate. There are clearly advantages to them to do this.
    So whatever they say they will not reduce immigration. They will fight elections on reducing immigration and like most election promises do something else. The only way is to root them out completely and replace them by honest people who will help and represent the people - those who will put us first and not work to erase the indigenous people of Europe from the pages of history.
    The Left want immigrants b/c they believe they will vote for the Left. They also provide the fuel for their formula of identity politics. The Leftist use conflict and envy - the idea of oppressed and oppressor. Management v worker | men v women | Black v White | Gay v Straight | Transgender v Cis-gender | Jew v Gentile | Able bodied v Disabled | Old v Young | and so on and so on.
    The idea of a nation of people getting along - one where people cooperate and trust - this is what they do not want. The likes of Leftists of Hope not Hate claim to be about love but what they about is the very opposite.
    The capitalists can drive down wages and conditions so will go along with the immigration - they also see the issue of small families and the aging population - They need cheap labour and customers. There was a television comedy in the 1990's called 2.4 Children - none of the indigenous people of Europe are having anything like enough children to maintain their numbers - the solution is to import millions of people who are. The result is the destruction of the European people - the loss of their culture and their actual replacement.
    No-one is tackling these issues and if they do they are labelled White Supremacist - racist - Nazi blah blah. i think people are sick of this but too many are afraid of being called a racist or some other vacuous name.

    Immigration was the biggest reason for voting leave according to polls, not everyone but it's the main reason. The UK population has always been against mass immigration according to every opinion poll since forever, they have always been for controlled immigration. They didn't vote for it but got it anyway and are still getting unlimited numbers. Last year was the highest immigration figures in the last 15 years.
    Freedom of movement isn't even the biggest source, but leaving the EU was the only option people were given to express their long held opinion. Voting for the 'tough against migrant' Tories has resulted in record levels of immigration, the whole democratic system is a joke. So people voted to break it. The leave vote was and still is a symptom of the problem imo. It's not going away.

    I have used an excel tracker started in 2014 which is set up for monthly use but now I just back fill every few months using bank statements to see where the money has gone. I like to break down things into percentage of total income, it helps visualise where the money is going better somehow.  
    Direct debit and standing orders cover almost everything from bills, debt repayment, holiday fund, mortgage overpayment, saving, investing and retirement. This ensures obligations and the minimum I want to save is hit without much thought. Whatever is left is mine to waste as I see fit, normally on family activity. Have as complex a plan as you need, but keep it simple day to day. Money is not that important.

    I voted Leave because the EU is run by and for big corporations, plus the way the EU treated Grease, Cyprus etc was disgusting.  It is true the MEPs do not make rules they just ratify them.  Remember Turkey's do not vote for Christmas.  
    My political views are probably  more left wing than most on here, though its obvious unless you are a Neo liberal you would want OUT of the EU.  Why would anyone want big business to rule over every decision and big business make up all the laws to suit them selves. 
    Right across the political spectrum if you believe in democracy the EU is just WRONG. Thats the thing with democracy you can have a Government you strongly disagree  with, yes even Corbyn but if he is elected then he should Govern.  he probably wouldn't be that bad because the rest of the labour party wouldn't let him pass law on most of his socialist ideas , maybe nationalise the utilities at most. Same with the right wing of the Conseratives they probably bring in more free market ideas but  again they would be stopped by the rest of the Tory party if they decided to privatised the NHS. 
    Back to the EU, IN my view it started off many years ago as an excellent idea as a free trade area common market.  Common Market Cheap food for the people, easy trade for companies between the member countries, then it went wrong.  The EU resembles more of a corporate Fascist superstate now, another reason to leave.
    We were given a vote the uk voted to leave the EU, its easy we just leave.  Remember its the EU who are being awkward.  The Irish boarder can stay the same as far as the UK is concerned, its the EU being awkward and the EU who will break the Good Friday agreement not the UK or the Irish. 
    The UK population are being nudged by the media constantly, the media are part of the problem.  If you sit back you can see the media are behaving similar to George Orwell's Ministry of Truth.  We are at the point now where it is nearly accepted that a uk wide democratic vote  is being totally ignored.  The population are being washed into believing only bad things will happen if we carry out the will of the people. (Edit) The media are peddling.  An alternative will have to be found or we will have another vote to get the right result.  
    We must not let the politicians con the population into having another vote.

    Not so important to drop UKIP as the EU elections are proportional representation - it becomes important when there is a general election as the vote can be split and the tired old parties still rule.
     Both the Conservatives and Labour need to be washed away but there needs to be something better to replace them. i imagine a revolution to erase the parasites and especially those behind the curtain but there has to be a strong honest incorruptible system in place or else the rot starts from day one.

    I respectfully disagree its not that simple. Jacob Rees Mogg was the tory poster boy for Brexit and at the last minute he put party first and supported May's deal. Tories will put party before country it is how the party reward/motivation culture works, and the function of the party whip structure. To put your trust in them again after the last few years is just trying the same thing again and expecting a different result. Insanity. Nothing will change if you vote for the same party that led us here regardless of what they promise.
    Agree on Labour, they ran on a platform of respecting the referendum yet look at the indicative votes in parliament, they are staunch remain almost across the board. Many of them are now sat in parliament holding their personal remain position after being elected on Brexiteer votes. Liars and traitors all.

    One thing that struck me with his court hearing is that the Judge in his closing statement called Assange a narcissist. This is problematic in a few ways:
    It's a subjective opinion It's an unqualified opinion It has nothing to do with law - the judge's only purpose for being there The courts allow judges to give these non-law speeches at the end of trials, and it's like a PM giving a subjective speech, in that they are for public consumption rather than an academic objective conclusion. The whole Assange episode feels like a political whitewash.
