The great UKIP calamity continues with Scriptonite: ‘It’s on, Farage, it’s on’


Vox Political‘s comrade-in-blogging at Scriptonite has stepped into the fray, siding with fellow bloggers against UKIP’s attempts to censor us and curtail our freedom of speech.

It’s impossible to reblog Scriptonite, but the article begins: “The UK Independence Party (UKIP) dropped all pretense as a Libertarian party this week when they brought in police and lawyers to threaten bloggers who shared a ‘fact check’ leaflet of UKIP’s policies.  Our response needs to be defiant, let’s get this leaflet around the country and the world” [meaning the image at the top of the article].

You can (and should) read the rest of the piece here.

The most notable part is the following, which indicates the strength of feeling currently prevalent in the blogosphere about UKIP and the appalling behaviour of its members and supporters: “Unless you believe that the nation is truly full of bigots and homophobes who want to get rid of their NHS and light a bonfire of their rights – clearly the message about what UKIP really stands for is not sinking in.  This rancid excuse for a party still doing well in the polls and is gifted more time on flagship BBC shows like Question Time than other alternative parties like the Green Party, despite the Greens having a sitting MP.  This is why bloggers must remain free to do the job that the mainstream media is clearly failing in: To expose Farage and the UKIPpers for what they really are – the same old establishment party of which the majority are sick to death.”

Undoubtedly the Scriptonite piece will prompt ‘Kippers’ into the same squawks of outrage they have made on other blogs (including this one). If you are one of those people, please take note of the following:

You are mistaken.

We are not lying about your party or its policies.

You are not members of a bold new political force but dupes of a privileged establishment that is using you to distract voters from the real issues.

UKIP is a dangerous joke, intended to be at your – and our – expense.

You will not persuade us with arguments about the veracity of our facts.

You will not intimidate us with threats of legal action.

You have no influence here.

We have the facts – and you can’t stop us using them.

    You know what? I might just write a letter to my local papers, explaining what has happened here over the last few days and why UKIP will never – ever – deserve my vote or that of anybody who really cares about the future of this country.

    I leave it entirely up to Vox Political readers whether they wish to do likewise but I’m coming to the conclusion that it is my duty as a concerned voter.

    Let’s hope that people do their ‘homework’ before voting! There are parties other than Lib/Lab/Cons Ukip that warrant careful thought and consideration by the public!

    As an independent blogger myself, I urge ALL of us to read BOTH posts in full.

    These are dangerous times… and dangerous measures, like having and expressing our own opinions freely, MUST be taken.

    Solidarity with genuinely free-thinking UK bloggers everywhere!
