[quote:Anonymous Coward 6188491:MV8yMDUzMTE5XzM0NTA5MjMxX0FBMDRFOUNC] [quote:Anonymous Coward 27305598:MV8yMDUzMTE5XzM0NTA5MTM5X0E2OTlERkEw] Nigel farrage is controlled opposition, he was a gold trader one of their own, he is there to give you something else to vote for. The only way to beat the system is to bust it, why do you think society has so many system busters walking the streets today, people who don't give a fuck about voting or their bullshit laws, we are here to bring it down around their ears by non compliance. [/quote] Maybe, maybe not. Fact of the matter is im not so left i would vote green, im not so far nationalist or socialist i would vote bnp, lib dem broke promises, labour overspent and let in massive immigration and the tories are cutting the wrong things. There is nobody else for me to vote for other than UKIP, it helps i agree with their stance on some/most things, if they renege on promises well i wont vote for them again. For me its basically vote UKIP in the next EURO elections and UKIP in the general, if they dont get enough votes to get some MP's in the commons im going to be just as disheartened as those than didnt vote today.

Polls closed tonight after the first elections to select police and crime commissioners across England and Wales.
Despite David Cameron heralding them as 'historic' elections, the vote was branded a 'comedy of errors' by the Electoral Reform Society, which claimed polling stations had been 'standing empty'.
One Tory MP told MailOnline: '‘I have been telling my constituents not to vote. This is an appalling bloody travesty costing £75million. I have not met anyone who is voting.’
In Wiltshire, the only area due to declare a result overnight, it was reported that barely one in seven electors had made it to the booths in Swindon.
Turnout in the town was just 14.68 per cent. It was even lower at nearby Devizes at 10.41 per cent.
In the most radical shake-up of the service for half a century, the new commissioners, who are expected to earn up to £100,000 a year, will control police budgets, set priorities and have the power to hire and fire Chief Constables.
