@sweep: I never claimed to speak for the people of Liverpool, you keep making assumptions about me that just aren't true and I just don't buy the argument that ex imperialistic nations have no right to determine, through democratic channels, who should or should not cross their borders. You act as though, by stating the pros of immigration, you are making an argument against what I've said when the truth is I've already informed you of my belief that migration has done a lot to benifit this country.
People DO realise what they're voting for. UKIP voters are not a bunch of idiots that need your incredibly wise guidance in order to see the light, they just bloody disagree with .
I certainly don't speak for the people of Liverpool and you can talk about your statistics all you want, I'd rather listen to what people of both sides of the debate have to say and use my own eyes to see how this city has changed over the past 25 years. People have the right to be concerned.
Farage says he wants the country back from Brussels (the E.U). I'm not supporting everything UKIP say or do because, as I said earlier, I disagree with a lot of it. I support gay marriage and I wouldn't like a flat rate of tax or a huge increase in military spending. One statistic I will inform you of is that immigration (along with the economy) is seen by the British people as one of the most important issues we currently face.
