UKIP and why I’ll be voting for them

Those of you who don’t live in the EU have probably escaped the fact that on May 22, a large proportion of us are going to vote for our representatives in the European Parliament – our MEPs. I have been asked on several occasions how I plan to vote, and why. I plan to vote […]

Vote 2013

Well, hustings are over, the buntings are down, the votes are in and the results are out. There were elections in 34 English councils, as well as a Parliamentary by-election in South Shields and a couple of mayoral elections yesterday. The results were quite interesting, especially considering some of the dirty tactics that both the […]

Vote UKIP

If you live in England, chances are that you may soon be voting in elections for County Councils. I urge everyone to vote for their UKIP candidate. You know it makes sense to vote for the party that speaks common sense.

Well, I have now received a reply from Auntie… Dear Pupazz Thanks for your e-mail regarding the ‘Daily Politics Election Special’ on 14 April. We’re glad you appreciate the show’s decision […]

Vote match shock

An email with a few excerpts from this article just arrived in my swollen Outlook inbox. People in Shropshire unsure which way to vote at the General Election were given a shock when an online system matched them to their most compatible party. Six floating voters agreed to take a 30-question survey to find out […]

The election debate

I didn’t watch it, though I recorded some programs around it. Popular consensus seems to be that Nick Clegg was the best of the three, although that does come with a caveat: a pie filled with shit may have more flavour than a plain piece of pastry, but that doesn’t make it better. Aside from […]
