Ukip, Tories and ‘Johnny Foreigner’

UKIP has certainly stirred up the Tories and loosened Cameron’s grip on his party. Setting parliamentary hysteria aside, what do UKIP actually stand for? Are they really anti-EU? Have they challenged the capitalist nature of the EU? Where is their opposition to rapid privatisation under the EU? They’ve criticised the effects of membership on the wages of workers in Britain, but where are their policies to regulate cheap labour?  They want more of it. There’s nothing about protecting trade union rights. In total they play on people’s discontent, but have nothing to offer us except a worse scenario of deeper cuts now. Where are their policies to protect British industry? No parliamentary party has a strategy for manufacture in Britain. UKIP’s ideas are all second hand, dusted off and taken down wholesale from the shelves of right-wing think tanks.
