Wake up parties

York Press: Wake up parties Wake up parties

I LOVE Europe but I don’t love un-elected European bureaucrats who are controlling this country through devious undemocratic routes.

The surge of Ukip is the biggest of all wake-up calls to our politicians. Despite them demonising the party and followers and accusing them of being racist, it has not dented their core message or support. It tells the political elite that the people of this country have had enough of the irresponsible open-door policy of immigration that was allowed by the Labour government and the EU. If any of them have any sense (unlikely now) they might start listening to real concerns and not be patronising. The simple truth is that we are a very small island… and we are full!

The Ukip vote has caused an earthquake and will create an extremely interesting period of politics. Mass panic will now set in with the political parties – big time. There is only a year left . Conservative David Cameron, as a man of privilege, was not the right man through a hard recession – they should have chosen David Davies who has had to graft through life like most of us.

Labour’s Ed Miliband cannot match his charismatic brother David; and Lib-Dem Nick Clegg will not survive the university fee U-turn.

The fun starts now…..

Keith Massey, Mill Lane York.

And Nigel Farage is not a 'man of privilege'? I am baffled as to how he's managed to convince everyone he's 'one of us' despite being a wealthy city banker.

Or maybe not. David Davies is a non-entity Tory MP for Monmouth, who has distinguished himself by making a fool of himself in the expenses scandals, the same-sex marriage debate and immigration policy.

If you mean the more credible candidate David Davis, you could at least do him the honour of spelling his name right.

Isn't it a good job that that isn't happening, then. Unfortunately it sounds like you're one of the millions of people who have fallen for the anti-EU propaganda and believe that we are controlled by shadowy puppet-masters in Brussels ... which simply is not true.

It's a little bit ironic really that city bankers are generally blamed for all our woes and now the hard-of-thinking are looking to one as their supposed saviour!

Anybody who regards the EU as a sound example of democracy has different standards to me. What is democratic about the European Commission? What democratic organisation refuses to accept the outcome of elections when the result doesn't suit them? (Irish Republic twice, and the Netherlands once).

What has the Irish Decision to do with the EU?

I agree that it was an outrage that the Irish Government would not accept the outcome of the vote, but the decision to run the ballot again was entirely an Irish decision and was not imposed by the EU.

Big assertions. How exactly do you know that the EU did not seek to "influence" the Irish government. Please don't tell me "because they wouldn't do that".
