he's completely right - Cameron has ruined the tories for any true right-wingers and Labour has ruined the country to such a point that most would not vote for them again. Don't vote tory, vote UKIP would be my message, no matter how reviling I find Farrage.

Not the way to go at all - the tories should announce a fierce, take-no-prisoners crackdown on this. It would distance them from Labour, bring more political capital and allow them to appear as crusaders against corruption. We do not need to be seen to be ducking even the most rudimentary of questions.

As anything other than a protest vote: yes. However, the BNP is the perfect vehicle for a protest vote - no other party gets this much coverage for this amount of votes! I repudiate your claim that it is nonsense in that I know many tories that have considered voting BNP and a fair amount that have indeed done so.

This is just another example of the government interfering with people's lives. Run public health campaigns etc., I'm fine with that, but that is where it should end. Why should corner shops have their business reduced on the basis of flawed research and for a stupid purpose?

Most BNP voters are NOT racist! They are disenfrachised tories that are fed up with the parties drift to the left. That is the real reason for a resurgent BNP - the tories need to grow some balls and become a real opposition party again. That is the only way to destroy the BNP!

I'm afraid I must agree - while normally a buffoon, Farage is completely right on this.

A great article, thanks. The 'shock jock' has also made some pretty cruel comments on autistic children. However, I feel that the 18th century quote in the article is a passage that describes the traditional values of England as well as any could. I am appalled at the banning of the 'shock jock', he may be sensationalist, but that doesn't mean he should be banned from the country. This is a complete joke and one that I feel goes against all English instincts.

The BNP are gaining ground for a number of reasons, some attributable to each main party. Labour's ineptitude and incompetance have drove voters from them and all main partys as mass disenfrachisement occurs. All of the main parties that refuse to engage the BNP are exacerbating the problem by removing the chance to have the BNP's representatives shown up for the racist criminials that they are. Finally, the tory drift to the left has left many thatcherites without a party to support - I am one of them.

Have to agree with them on the 'interrogation techniques' (as the euphamism goes). I'd rather torture 5 terrorists to death and save innocent lives - besides which, I feel that as soon as someone commits a serious crime (burgalary up) they forfeit their human rights.

This was always the logical decision, although in these tough financial times renewal should be kept to the absolute minimum to be secure until such time as the economy improves.

Seems fair enough to me, provided all the facts are true. It is a risk, however, as it may be used to show the tories as a nasty party.

A good promise from Cameron, but he really needs to be using facts l;ike this to rubbish Brown.

Anything is an advantage in these tough times.

Robin R - without his leadership, I would have joined the party.

I doubt that Harman would - it would signify a return to old-labour style communism with the added incompetancy of positive discrimination and equality to stupid extents.

It's problems like this that have led to our current benefit culture,

Cameron is weak when compared to Thatcher, he should not be trying to emulate her - too much has changed and he is too different. Instad, he needs to return to traditional tory values - tough on crime, supporing grammar schools, etc - and become more aggressive when questioning Brown.

I'm no fan of Johnson, but he's done a good job ibn London, keeping with tory values mostly and seems to be fairly popular. I dreaded him gaining the mayorhip, but m glad that he did now. Johnson is the Susan Boyle of politics - defying all expectations to be very good!

Alan Duncan did well in his speech, I am impressed. This, as the author said, is just another example of the disintegration of Labour. If Labour were a racehorse, it would have been long gone by now.

Capping donation limits is a stupid policy from Cameron, to be blunt. Not only would it harm us much more than Labour, but it also gives yet another measure of control to the government. People should be able to do whatever they want with their money!

the majority of Brits say that they want to leave tyhe EU for two reasons: 1. To express annoyance at the way the Eu is working 2. Not being educated enough. Britain would pay disproportianately high costs for leaving the EU as relations deteriorated, any shred of respect we have left is lost and preferential rade decreases. Tell the public this, and they will not want to leave the EU. What Cameron needs to do is to show the Eu he is unhappy with the current state of affairs: slash Britain's commitments, repeal or modify the Human Rights Act and hold a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty. Should he do this, he will gain, larger support among eurosceptics and exude a more respectable aura than he currently does.

The fact that the tories are losing votes to these jokers is a damning comdemnation of Cameron's drift to the left.

I'm afraid that I don't agree, while you are wooing the lib dem voters, you are driving away some of the more traditional members of the party, thus rising BNP and UKIP votes.
