POLITICIANS must understand that the rise of UKIP is not just about immigration - it is also about loss of our democracy to unelected European bureaucrats and the gross waste, incompetence and corruption endemic in the EU, which still cannot sign off the accounts after 19 years.

Then there’s the European-driven HS2: half-a-million homes, half-a-million families, more than a million people and thousands of businesses and farms will be blighted by this project.

They will not have any hope of proper compensation because of a Government so out of touch that it failed to see it had been left with a cuckoo-like vanity policy on its own doorstep - by a mischief-making outgoing administration.

Voting UKIP is the only way to influence the self-regarding and condescending arrogance the three-party political consensus displays for the people they claim to serve.

C Henson, Ullswater, York.

Or you could vote Green. Or for an independent candidate. You'd only vote UKIP if you also wanted to see the NHS scrapped, the end of holiday entitlement for employees, and you don't mind being governed by people who casually use racist, misogynist and homophobic language.

Precisely what I was going to say. Being disillusioned with the main three in no way leaves UKIP as the 'only choice'.

Good letter and a lot of nonsense written above. I'll say it again. Wait until September and then you can talk on what is UKIP policy.
At the moment you are making it up to suit what you want to believe or what the big three + Greens have brainwashed you with.
If there is a better choice than UKIP to save our country then name that party!

Hah! Believing that salvation will come from another party is delusion par excellence. Hook line and sinker.
