I was one of those who took part in the Guardian/ICM survey immediately after the debate, and said that Farage won it. However, I went on to say that it did not change my opinion; I will not be voting for UKIP in any elections and I find many of Farage’s policies nauseating. He won the debate because Clegg was appallingly bad – unconvincing and patronising.
Meanwhile, cases like Yashika’s are happening right now, because people are buying into a concocted lie that immigration is causing our problems. People need to wake up, take a look around and realise that attention is being diverted away from the people who really caused our problems.
Is that really so hard to do?
