I don't know what makes you look more ridiculous. Thinking about spoiling your ballot paper or telling people on the internet  that you were thinking about spoiling it.

 

What are you? Five years old? 

And who are you?  The playground bully?

Both May and Corbyn have claimed that the results are due to the public being fed up with Brexit and just wanting them to "get on with it".

 

If that was the case I'd have expected a surge in votes for parties supporting Brexit, that didn't happen.

Mmmmm. It flies in the face of all the ignorant 'all Brexiteers are racist' mob, doesn't it?

Who has ever said all Brexiteers are racist?

 

 

But I'll stand by the vast majority of racists are Brexiterers.

I would have thought UKIP would have done better in the local elections if that was the case.

So you don’t think that scribbling something on your ballot paper that no one will read, instead of voting or abstaining is childish?

If they are regarded as a one-issue party, then they're a spent force.

 

Brexit Party has taken on that mantle.

 

And UKIP are not entirely a one-issue party, they are also extreme free-marketeers and laissez-faire capitalists - who cling to the credo that "the market" can, should, and will  provide.

Let’s not forget that the first UKIP manifesto called for privatisation of the NHS until someone told them that they might be able to get votes in poor white working class areas.

Was that under Alan Sked, or when Farage took the helm?

You've obviously never been present at a count before.

Some of them have been read by thousands of the public as many have been printed in the national newspapers and I must add there were quite a few good comments written on some of them.
