Party political

York Press: Party political Party political

Party political WHAT arrogance from Julian Cole in his column in The Press of May 29. His comments are an insult to everyone who voted for Ukip.

His column every Thursday should carry a warning: “This is a party political broadcast on behalf of the Labour party.”

Keith Thornton, De Grey Place, Bishopthorpe, York.

Editor’s note: As it happens, Julian tells us that he voted Green in the European elections.

Julian's commentary was spot on and served to illustrate just how easy it is to see through the kippers. It's strange though how they think that all kipper critics are Labour supporters.

Given the huge amount of promotion UKIP enjoyed courtesy of the BBC, it's pretty rich of their supporters to whinge that not everyone agrees with them.

Not at all strange. I've noticed a fair few UKIP supporters rolling out that same binary, schismatic thinking.

GreenLibLabCon, what's the difference? They are all in it together. I would struggle to vote if that was the choice. We would still have our hands tied behind our backs to allow uncontrolled EU immigration and be crippled with Green taxes and carbon targets while the heating stays on at the end of May!
The PM tried only the other day to get support for EU reform and failed.
So, the choice is a UKIP fix next year or wait until 2017 to find out what we know today. The others are just more of the same.
So, Cole = Green / Labour: Sounds about right, same with a different leader!

One of a great many insults, all of them thoroughly deserved.

If you vote Kipper then you should expect to be insulted, because quite frankly you're an idiot.
