Yes, several of these results should concern the other parties greatly. I agree that denying the BNP a platform and treating the pariahs is not a good idea. Though they are loathsome neo-Nazis subjecting them to unfair treatment only helps their cause instead of hurting it. The BNP and its ilk should be countered with ideas not by the force of law.

Nice report except for the stupid habit of calling them far-right. Has this person actually read their manifesto? Its pure 100% socialism. Last time I checked socialism is not right its left. The BNP are far-left extremists and always have been. Calling them far-right is ignorant in extremis and is knee-jerk left of centre "all rightists are racists" rubbish.

Well by definition libertarians are conservative because of their fiscal conservatism. However, I am not sure that a libertarian could support most Conservative politicians on offer. However, were one could support certain Conservatives like Dan Hannan MEP, Cllr John Harrison, Douglas Carswell MP and a few others. Libertarianism is basically anarchism without balls. How about having a read before spouting off again?

"BBC bashing is safe because the BBC is bound by strict rules of impartiality." That may have been the case 30 years ago... but impartial the BBC? Not by half mate, they are the most biased news outfit on TV in the UK.

Its not a good deal because 1. you have to pay it 2. most of it is rubbish. It amazes me that people are still get away with acting like paying the TV tax is a choice and not a matter of law.

Brown has taken the UK down the toilet, but Dan Hannan is the "real" threat to these nitwits. I agree that reporting it to Ofcom is not the answer, sorry Donal. Campaigning even harder to do away with the TV/free speech tax is a much better solution. Allow proper competition in the TV/entertainment market and see what the public really want. Knowing Dan, he is probably not the slightest bit perturbed by the cretin's rant and might even be flattered he noticed.

Hannan gets pilloried for saying the NHS model is not the right one for the US. How is that wrong? Why should be expected to lie to the viewing public for the sake of some sacred cow that no longer functions properly.

Haha, I had to laugh...does anyone take yer another of the leftie establishment trashing Hannan seriously? What is Notlob itching for a job at the Beeb?

Completely agreed, that will be a great help to all those rural communities seriously hurt by the nasty piece of urban socialist idiocy.

The only plausible case for Cameron as PM is that he is not Labour or Lib-Dem.

You either believe that sovereignty begins with self or you don't. You wish to condemn those sufferings with terminal and debilitating illness to a slow and painful death because it offends your morality. As one wag put it.."I hope you get to experience what you so misunderstand or don't want to understand" when engaged in an argument with some pontificating with "moral" superiority about the "right to die" discussion. Opponents work in hypotheticals about "potential abuse" and thus wish to collectively punish everyone because someone might abuse the law. I welcome the House of Lords decision.

What was obnoxious and foolish is slagging off people who use Twitter. I thought the "new" Conservative Party was adept at new media. Obviously they haven't advised Cameron very well. The fact he said twat is neither here nor there, the context is what matters.

It should not surprise anyone that a craven cretinous turncoat like Bercow has been rewarded by Labour with such a position. The fact he has become speaker is utterly preposterous and typical of Labour's control of Parliament.

Good piece, glad you had the courage to post it. I wrote about the BNP over here and getting all kinds of BNP apologists claiming I have no proof they are neo-Nazi. Took me 30 seconds to find plenty of proof they and their leader are exactly that.

I think they are getting rid of Brown so they can change leaders before the next election in May 2010. They know they can't win with Brown so they want to ditch him for "new" blood, Young leader vs young leader vs young leader...

The main problem, as it always has been, is that the British vision (baring a few Federasts) is for something completely different to the vision of Europe on the continent. The "Anglo" plan is not going to happen no matter how hard the British try to get it to come to pass. The British have to either accept and inevitable drive towards and United States of Europe or leave.

JS: Explain yourself? How exactly is Dan Hannan a vote loser?

That is really desperate guys. "If UKIP do well then Brown will go and that means that Labour may win the next election." Not too many assumptions there right? Doesn't matter that Cameron & Co are waffling on the EU and there are MEP candidates who are not so Eurosceptic as say Hannan it seems.

"Palestinian Jew"? You have to be kidding. There was no such thing as Palestine in Jesus' day. Talking like that smacks of anti-Israel rhetoric and probably is not the best way to phrase it. Palestine is a name made up by the Romans to impose their will on the the area over the Jews. Its amusing you criticise the sentence about funding of "currupt third world countries" in their manifesto. Surely even a Christian would want his or her tax money to go to people in genuine need and not to prop up some potentate or fund terrorism & repression. The foreign aid budget is full of waste and funds not going where they were meant to go. This is an area any conservative government should really look closely at. There are a great deal of noxious things about the neo-Nazi BNP, but it would help if you stuck to the right targets.

So Roger you think people should vote Conservative not matter what? Not all Conservative MEPs are as sound as Mr Hannan. There are a few dregs who have gone native left, they should be rid of first.

Its funny if you are threatening to kill someone on the right, but not if its someone on the left? Double-standards methinks...nothing like getting yourself mentioned in the same breath as Perez Hilton.

I love the fact they have the BNP in the centre of the anti-EU extreme. Surely they should have the BNP on the far left of that chart? Its obviously a pro-EU survey designed to "guilt" people into to voting for a pro-EU party.
