Vote for love

Today was polling day for the European elections, and it would appear that UKIP stand to do well. Despite the nonsense that their party members/ex-members tend to spout, people seem to be keen on them doing well. Recent gaffes include:
  • David Silvester claiming that the four months of freak weather in the UK was down to the Government's recent legalisation of gay marriage.
  • Godfrey Bloom telling a reporter: "no self-respecting small businessman with a brain in the right place would ever employ a lady of child-bearing age," and "I just don't think [women] clean behind the fridge enough."
  • William Henwood stating of comedian Lenny Henry: "He should emigrate to a black country. He does not have to live with whites."
  • Eric Kitson claiming that muslim women should be hanged.
  • Chris Pain describing immigrants as "sandal-wearing, bomb-making, camel-riding, goat-f*cking, ragheads."
  • Geoffrey Clark calling for compulsory abortion of foetuses with Down's syndrome or spina bifida.
I only hope that people chose to use their brains when voting today.

On my voting paper, there was a choice of nine parties. One of the options available just amazed me:
  • Harmony Party
    "Zero-Immigration, Anti-EU, Pro-Jobs"
Not sounding TOO harmonious there!

++++++++++ UPDATE ++++++++++

These are the results according to the BBC:

So Labour appear to be making good gains, as do the UKIP fruitcakes and loonies. Shame to see the Lib Dems lose so many seats, as they managed to weedle some of their plans into the coalition, such as the £10K tax allowance.

The European election results will be announced on Sunday.
