Ex-Labour voter seeking return of self-government

Daily Echo: Nigel Farage Nigel Farage

MORE drivel about UKIP “selling off chunks of the NHS”, this time from Angela C. Broad (Letters, March 8), who seems to also believe that the EU can be reformed “from within”.

What a joke. The Tories have been trotting out that mendacious line for years, and now Frau Merkel has told Cameron he can forget about his mythical renegotiation.

According to Ms Broad, as a Ukipper, I must be a “rich home counties middle Englander”, when I am a disillusioned ex-Labour voter who wants democratic self-government restored to this country. Oh, and I work for the NHS. Rich?!

COLIN HINGSTON, Southampton.

Colin I've talked to you in the past(on the phone) What do you think of Ed Millbands stand on a referendum?
Colin Alan Kebble (Keeble) or Inform Al as he's called on here seems to think your left of labour are you?
he also defends Labour all the time so how can he ever stand for UKIP?
Will you actively go for Labour votes in this city?
Why haven't I received any leaflets from UKIP for the up coming council elections & the EU elections yet?

Well Mr Hingston as you were disillusioned with Labour you must be delighted that you didn’t choose to join the Tories or Lib Dem as I am sure that you would have been suicidal by now.
.
However you have jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire. You must realize by now that UKIP will never govern this Country and your chances of a referendum are ZERO. ……
.
Yes UKIP may well pick up some EU votes and seats …… But why, as all they do is moan about it ….. although it is alleged that they do make quite a few pounds on expenses so I can perhaps see the attraction.
.
But surely you are surrounding yourself with a Tory type party ….. promising the earth and delivering nothing ……. Apart from dodgy sleaze ridden candidates or MP’s
.
See the light Mr Hingston ….. UKIP will be finished at the end of May 2015 despite all of the promises and dreams …… The Tories and their press will search every nook and crannie to produce lie after lie to ensure you wont succeed

I take it you are referring to Adolf 'Ras' Putin, as nearly all the Ukippers I have met recently are quite left wing. In fact are more concerned about social housing, or the lack of it, and the NHS than most in the Labour party.
