UKIP supporters have gone very quiet - is anyone going to vote for them, or have they served their purpose?

Not much mention of their leader - I wonder why hmm. Nige was everywhere!

Everyone who votes Conservative, is in reality voting for UKIP, or at least for the UKIP agenda.

Nigel Farage declared that he was "thrilled" that Theresa May was doing everything he ever wanted. She even appears to take instructions from the editor of the DAily Mail.

What more could any UKIPPER ever want?

If everyone who votes conservative is in reality voting for UKIP, varian can you explain this because I know conservative voters who voted to remain, was remain on the UKIP agenda ?

Theresa May was a nominal remainer but when the leave side won a narrow majority of those who voted in the referendum she saw that it would advance hef career if she did a complete about turn and became a leaver.

In order to be moreconvincing she embraced almost evefy UKIP policy from fox hunting to grammar schools. No wonder Farage said he was ddlighted that she was doing everyghing he wanted.

Most rank and file Tories ard very loyal. They see that as a virtue rather than sticking to principles so although many had voted remain, they almost all, with the honourable exception of Ken Clarke, just caved in like sheep and now campaign for a hard brexit, no matter what damage that might do. In other words they might as well be UKIP.

Thunder and lightening is more likely

I still want lavender coloured hair.
If UKIP become defunct no-one will think I support them if I have purple hair will they?

Now, Jalima, funny you should mention that, I have a tube of pastel pink temporary hair dye in the cupboard, and just can't decide whether to go for it or not.....

Oh, phoenix, be brave and go for temporary green! Actually the colours purple and green go quite well together so how about stripes?

Which has just given me an idea for a campaign: confuse everyone about your voting intentions with rapid changes of hair colour over the next week or so.

Our UKIP candidate is the leader.
