It’s not just a raft of completely nuts racist gaffs that are making UKIP the media’s whipping boy du jour. It’s the fact that mostly they are completely nuts – their manifesto is a grammar-poor, Daily Mail wet dream of reactionary hyperbole and spittle-flecked fury.

Their energy policy is similar, so scientifically illiterate that even creationists would be embarrassed, with economics drawn from a nursery school argument over whose marbles are whose. So with all that in mind, we proudly present to you today’s listicle…

Seriously, just the letters "UKIP" ought to be enough to dismiss any of their claims out of hand.
And yet they seem to be getting quite popular. I despair. :(

BBC's favourite panel contestant on Pointless Politicians (formerly Question Time) is a big city boy who I would suspect, as with many from the other parties, has several vested interests.

I'm never sure who to vote for, because nobody fits my views in the UK (I'm apparently slightly left borderline anarchist according to http://www.politicalcompass.org/ and the others) but the only part I feel I can possibly vote for without feeling like I've betrayed myself and the future is The Greens.

Generally speaking I think politics is balls. That's my considered and cultured view of it all.

I've been voting green ever since labour decided it was OK to bomb the crap out of other countries for oil.
I do think that they have a chance if the disillusioned labour voters gave them a chance. The manifesto looks great: more science spending, renationalise the railways, focus on green energy.

You could give this lot a go and we may even get a chance of having direct democracy.
