Just ignore the scum.
The European Union are so hysterically afraid of Mr. Farage that they have spent £2 million (yes, MILLION) on hiring soulless shills that will go and insult UKIP on various internet boards.

so where are all the young people in that room? as a young person, that pic says it all. i cant see how ukip represents anything other than the past and those that cannot deal with the present or future. ukip would be a disaster in power. worse than the tories they themselves despise. they are just as pro privatisation globalisation as the tories. they dont care about british workers its just a ruse to confuse.

The UK's electoral system will work against UKIP making any progress in a general election. Leaving the EU would be a dangerous and damaging move for the UK. We need to stay in because the EU is the worlds largest free trade economy.

There is an excellent assessment by the BBC's Robert Peston on what is wrong with the British Economy. Read this http://www.bbc.co.uk

354 and it will certainly make you think again about leaving the EU.

Leaving the EU is not a "magic wand" solution for the UK's problems. Right-wing politicians like Nigel Farage and Tory Euro-sceptics want the trade benefits of the EU, but their main and hidden aim is to take away the social and employment rights of the British people, which we have as a result of EU law.

There are no young people in the room because they have not bothered to attend. The young are being brainwashed from a very early age, they think they are in charge of their lives but alas they are not, health n safety, rules and regulations are preparing them to be CONTROLLED, which is the intention of the EU,who do not believe in democracy.Also the young do not know what this country was like,and could be again,when we controlled it and our borders ourselves.

Well said, a major problem that we are now experiencing is the brain-washing that we have allowed the establishment (EU) to do to our children from an early age.

The LibLabCon have so much to answer for!

Come on Worcester!

The elections aree in a few weeks time. If you have a UKIP candidate the vore for them! The old LibLabCon party has failed us and has no more answers, and so they just attack anything that they think might be progressive, and challenge their hold of power.

Expect a lot of lies from the LibLabCon party in the next few weeks, because they have nothing new to offer and lies about UKIP are all they have left to offer!

Vote for the liars and you will get what you deserve!
