I have with interest read DR. Howard Thompson’s column in viewpoint “Rasen Mail” October 28.
After having read it I went all over it again and I came to the same conclusion as I had the first time.
There was not one positive word in his column, all was complaining and negative. This shows that the UKIP is nothing but a protest party.
We have seen protest parties pop up overall in Europe since the second world war and they have all been short lived and I am afraid that the UKIP will go the same way. You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.
The brits are not stupid and they will in due course realise that the UKIP is nothing but an empty barrel who makes a lot of noise. It takes more than a pint of lager in front of a photographer to run a political party.
