MacShane:

In Berlin recently, David Cameron promised a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty were he to become prime minister and the Treaty were not to be ratified. That would mean that the first period of any Tory government unleashing, as its main contribution to international politics, a festival of xenophobic hate against Europe. The Tories, BNP, UKIP and the Daily Mail would win the vote – but at the cost of reducing Britain\’s influence across the Channel and Atlantic to zero.

You\’ve still not got it, have you?

It\’s nothing to do with xenophobia, nothing to do with Europe.

It\’s about the specific political structure that is the European Union.

  1. And he has to paint all dissenters as racists. That’s all the lefties can do nowadays, because they have had ample time to demonstrate the futility of all their arguments and ideas.

    Anything can get you labelled with the racism tag nowadays, including if you believe in smacking your kids when they are naughty, or if you are sceptical about climate change, or the wisdom of sub-prime mortgages.

  2. What I can’t understand is how anyone thinks that doing as you’re asked (told?) and “not rocking the boat”will get you more influence. Usually asking for everything you dream of and being b awkward if you don’t get it has a better effect- unless a pat on the head is all your heart desires.

  3. I’ll believe the UKIP is not a racist party when it manages to wheel out ONE candidate who is black.

    I’ll believe the UKIP is not a sectarian party when it wheels out ONE candidate who is an atheist, a moslem or a Hindu

    I’ll believe the UKIP believes in freedom when it wheels out ONE candidate who calls for the abolition of the Monarchy.

    It’ll be a cold day in Hell when those things happen. Until then, why do I find Timmy’s protestations rather hollow?

    “I’ll believe the UKIP is not a racist party when it manages to wheel out ONE candidate who is black.”

    Well the obvious question is, how many UKIP candidates are there? Blacks only make up one in fifty of the population. I don’t think the chances are very high that you’d pull a bunch of names out of a hat at random and have no Blacks.

    “I’ll believe the UKIP is not a sectarian party when it wheels out ONE candidate who is an atheist, a moslem or a Hindu”

    Sorry? Sectarian? I’d have thought that the pro-EU has a large Sectarian grouping – it is all a Papist plot don’t you know? MacShane is of course half-Polish. But I have not heard a hint of sectarianism linked to the No camp. There should be I think.

    “I’ll believe the UKIP believes in freedom when it wheels out ONE candidate who calls for the abolition of the Monarchy.”

    Isn’t it interesting that the world’s freest societies tend to be monarchies. Sweden, by your demanding standards, seems to be not free but North Korea is. Why?

    “It’ll be a cold day in Hell when those things happen. Until then, why do I find Timmy’s protestations rather hollow?”

    Well the obvious answer involves you, a four letter words and “wit”. But your f*ckwittery is not TW’s problem I expect.

  5. I’ll believe the UKIP is not a racist party when it manages to wheel out ONE candidate who is black.

    So without tokenism, we are all racists? Having never seen any policies of UKIP addressing race, I have no reason to believe that they are racists.

    However, I do understand that by the standard of the left, everyone is a Neo Nazi, until proven innocent.

    On the subject of the Monarchy, is it not just possible that UKIP might actually believe in preserving our constitution?
