Vote any way you want – as long as it’s UKIP

Britain First broke the irony meter again this week! By supporting UKIP’s claim that democracy is dead they reveal not only their own anti-democratic stance but also that of their favourite political party.

Their political hero, Nigel Farage has claimed that Thursday’s Oldham West election was fixed because Asians didn’t vote for the UKIP candidate. That’s like complaining because turkeys don’t vote for Christmas (or ‘Thanksgiving’ as the American Biffers would understand it).

Not much as it happens. We’ve summarized our thoughts below…

The unelected (and unelectable) leader of a parliamentary political party has decided that since the people his party hates most have not voted for the party that hates them the most, democracy has failed. The message is clear…

It’s only democracy if UKIP wins. Otherwise it’s a fix!
