UKIP is the only real opposition to our cross-party political establishment.
There is no real difference between the Conservative, Labour and Lib-Dem parties.
They all want continued membership of the European Union, they all want continued mass immigration, and they are all out of touch with the vast majority of voters.
If you go on voting for them then you cannot expect any different outcomes.
If you want something different then support, join and vote UKIP.
