Whilst I can’t say I voted for your party this time around I did think that Nigel Farage is 10x better than that smarmy git Kilroy and that he and Dan Hannan made a fine and entertaining double act. RAB June 8, 2009 at 3:16 pm Well I voted for you here in Bristol mate!Pity you didn’t get a seat, but a bloody good night for UKIP. Too many spoilers on the ballot paper. What the hell are the English Democrats or the No to the EU bunch trying to do? If you could have gotten some of those votes, wow what a result that would have been. Obnoxio The Clown June 8, 2009 at 3:18 pm Sorry you didn’t make it, Timmy, better luck next time… Matthew June 8, 2009 at 3:53 pm Congratulations to Ukip, it was a sensational result. Do you not feel a little embarrassed however that you have a played a minor role in getting a party elected whose campaign has focused so much on stopping free movement of labour? Greg June 8, 2009 at 4:49 pm And excellent work in the day job, Worstall. JuliaM June 8, 2009 at 5:06 pm Yes, congratulations to UKIP in general, and commiserations to Tim in particular. dearieme June 8, 2009 at 5:07 pm Anyone called you a fascist Nazi racist yet? Anyway, well done. KMcC June 8, 2009 at 6:25 pm Dearie – I’m getting a lot of that kind of talk directed my way from friends and acquaintances. Some people are boycotting me for being right wing. I tell you, it’s hard being a Hayekian in Scotland at this time. Bernie Gudgeon June 8, 2009 at 6:59 pm At least you were a player. Harry June 8, 2009 at 7:03 pm Thanks Tim and hope you continue with UKIP MatGB June 8, 2009 at 8:20 pm Couldn’t you have managed 5K more votes in the NW? dearieme June 8, 2009 at 9:47 pm Ah, the little-known Hayekian wing of the international fascist Nazi racist conspiracy – a hard row to hoe. shouldbeworking June 8, 2009 at 11:40 pm Just heard Sheila Gunn on Radio 4 conflating UKIP with the BNP. She has come very close to losing her party at least one vote. Someone should tell Dave. Matthew June 9, 2009 at 9:04 am I heard Nigel Farage (who comes across as a lovely man, shame about the expenses thing) on BBC radio saying that immigration must be much stricter and he would like to see job-related quotas on immigration, i.e. government knows best. jameshigham June 9, 2009 at 9:40 am Next time perhaps. Not that there’ll be a next time post Lisbon. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
