This began seeing a tweet on Rotherham:
Allo allo allo, what’s all this then? Here is the woman herself, on the gravy train like the rest of the MEPs and supposedly campaigning to get off it:
Let’s have a look at the evidence:
That is flabbergasting. OK, there are a few things happening here.
1. Nigel always excluded the BNP and similar and refused to support Marine Le Pen for a long time. This was to get the votes of the “respectable but disgruntled”, under which heading they’d have placed me, given my education. I’ve done nothing to dispel that by supporting Jacob Rees-Mogg for PM over Tessa May.
2. But UKIP also started to go for the working class vote, the type of person I meet in this area and the tenor of the comments from them is UKIP were doing well for awhile, supporting the worker, trying to stop immigration in these numbers, stopping the Muzzies. They were the only party supporting people up and down the country.
Result – 3.8 million people and plenty of council seats. That was the high point, with a great 2015 manifesto. And one of the issues was clearly Rotherham – we all remember Nigel being manhandled by Labour thugs and forced to seek refuge in local UKIP HQ. Plus the clowns who wrecked his Sunday lunch.
These workers are not “commies”, they don’t like commies like Corbyn and wouldn’t vote for him. Well whom would they vote for?
No one. “I’m not voting UKIP – they’ve blown it with all their fighting and Tory toffs, instead of still standing for the working man. No one in their right mind would ever vote Tory, we have long memories. With Corbyn in charge, I’m not voting for them, even if our local member’s not bad.”
There was quite some talk about Carswell and how he tried to steer it away from immigration, which Farage kept it very much on. “They made a big mistake kicking Farage out,” were many comments. “They blew it.”
But on top of that, politics has changed. With us having pretty much got Brexit and other nations about to do their own – or at least pressurize the collapsing EU – then the obvious N1 issue is Muslim and leftwing violence, but mainly Muslim violence. It’s the number one issue around our way – that and the issue coupled with it – jobs for Brits.
AMW addresses that one fairly and squarely, along with Tommy Robinson, along with so many around the world – most of the true conservative press backs these sorts of things.
So for Collins and an entire UKIP branch to join the rest of the establishment in abandoning rape victims, then as far as I’m concerned, that’s the end of UKIP for me unless they come out with a huge repudiation of Rotherham branch. I may be a Mogglodyte for the Tory leadership, given that we have no choice but Tories until 2022 but I’m also for the workers of this country, including the middle-class put-upon.
I have written to this Jane Collins.
