@jothel: It is disappointing that you resort to insult, but I do have sufficient hand-eye coordination and mental faculty to realize that we are being sold down the river with the current mainstream parties (except for the richest of us, of course).

I voted UKIP since I think they are the least terrible party (of the four) with the greatest chance of causing policy change (as they already have done). I wouldn't want them governing the country but I think UK and European politics does need a shake up and that voting UKIP is more likely to make that happen than voting for the other parties. While I don't agree with all their policies or candidates, I think our membership of the EU has eroded the UK's ability to determine it's own laws and borders.

Sorry, I just find it incredible that people would vote for such an obviously racist party filled with vile human beings. They want to turn the clock back and put in place some incredibly bad stuff, wanting to deny employment to a woman, just because she's a woman and also getting rid of maternity leave. I know you said you don't want them running the country but they're going to be just as bad if not more so in the EU.

I find it incredible that people think UKIP is a racist party because they want to control further immigration (mainly from same-race EU members) and want independence from the EU. I think the point about womens' prospects was based on an employer's duty to provide maternity leave; and specifically about a a woman's worth to the financial sector if they have children. Farage was describing what currently is happening today in that male dominated sector because of maternity rights, rather than some plan to deny employment to women.

I'm not sure these accusations aren't endemic of a lack of understanding about what UKIP actually does stand for. This speaks to the power of a biased press and political opposition in creating lies and falsehoods to misrepresent UKIP. It's almost as if there is no political counter-argument to make, so the personal attacks and blatant lies comes out instead.

There are plenty of vile human beings in the other parties, so I think that politics and not vileness is useful in determining who to vote for.

OK, I am a politics graduate so I do know UKIP fairly well and what I am saying about them shows you how ridiculosu they are, so that I am not willing to make a political counter-argument, there's little point. Vile people in other parties? Yeah that's why every week we see a news story about a labour or tory member being massively racist or generally pretty disgusting... oh no wait, just UKIP with the occasional BNP member. UKIP goes out of its way to tell people that it's not a racist party, something that pretty much only racist parties do. If it is truly not racist, as you and the party are adamant then what are you going to do about the large percent of voters for your party that are incredibly racist, homophobic and so on?

I didn't vote, because there is no party that represents me.

Mario Party?

Labour, are there actually people voting UKIP here?

Didn't a recent poll show they were getting 30% of projected votes?

Yeah but I mean specifically on this forum, I somehow thought that the average UKIP supporter wouldn't have the hand eye coordination skills to be able to enjoy video games

Yeeeeees! Did it first time after I took all of your advice, thanks very much =D used the craftsman's hammer for it, was pretty effective - shall I continue to level it up or go back to the mace I was levelling?

Yeah I have been searching for a 100% shield, knowing only about the one after the pursuer (tried that fight once and won't try it again for a while) and the one that McDuff sells you but I can't seem to get him to sell me stuff, even after lighting the torch. I've just gone to get the rings available in the forest - will go to the wharf next. Thanks again all! =D
