I dont think UKIP are any danger to Britain at all, certainly much less danger than any of the others.

Here's the damage done to Southampton caused by FibDemLabCon who clearly are the real danger;
Every other name on Southampton Maternity unit cots is East European.
Locals can't get their kids into their nearest school.
Even if they can it's full of kids that can't speak English properly.
The General hospital has had to ask for more funding for the hepatobiliary liver service due to Vodka usage by our friends from the East.
The social housing list is now 8 years long.
The main road I live on has got busier & noisier.
I was speaking to Pole the other day at 11am.
I asked him how come you're not at work?
He replied he 'Couldn't get any more chef work here'
I said will you be going back to Poland then?
He replied 'No I steel beetar off here' !
On the dole !
I bought a 2 flat that had had 6 Lithuanians living in.
The new working class living like this with almost no overheads so undercutting wages for locals & driving down living standards for people with mortgages to pay & making slumlords & min wage employers richer.
EU = Capitalist's wet dream brought to you courtesy of the left.
Now we see the latest news is that Cameron's got Jesus.
He's as delusional as B.Liar!
VOTE UKIP
