[quote:Anonymous Coward 6188491:MV8yMDUzMTE5XzM0NTA5MjY4X0FFQUZBNTJB] [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. [/quote] That doesn't resonate with me, UKIP have been going 15 years, are you suggesting UKIP were set up as controlled opposition 15 years ago before the immigration and economic issues of europe got so bad? I only ever here the controlled opposition talk from BNP voters, BNP aint going to win shit and will probably never poll above 5%, you want something done about immigration you can vote for LIB/LAB/CON on their promises... being that they have all lied over and pver about promises in the past or you can give UKIP a chance, and even then its luck of the draw as they are not even polling enough in areas to win yet, it could take another 8 years for them to start winning seats. The best protest vote against the main three is UKIP or nothing. [/quote]

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.
