Does anybody still support UKIP on the basis of all that guff about being the “party of the people”? If so, they’ll be leaving the party at speed after Nigel Farage said he would betray them in Parliament.
Speaking ahead of the party’s spring conference, Mr Farage said UKIP would back future Tory budgets if they helped eliminate the current deficit by 2018, according to the BBC.
Most damningly, he said George Osborne had failed to meet his deficit targets since 2010 because he had shirked “tough choices”. He means the choices that harm your quality of life while ensuring that the rich can still enjoy theirs.
Farage said far-right Conservative plans – that would really hit working-class and unemployed voters hard, let’s bear in mind – had been hampered by the Liberal Democrats, in a clear appeal to David Cameron. He might as well have jumped up and down, shouting “Choose me! Choose me!” in the event of a hung Parliament.
Here is a man who criticises the Conservatives – not because they have hammered the poor too hard, but because they haven’t hammered hard enough.
Why do poor people continue to support his crackpot party?
