    Well they are coming to the debate belatedly.

    I'm very anti Labour Party, but I must say to give them their due, the thing Milliband was in the news yesterday talking about, is highly relevant. Kudos to them for flagging this up and making pledges on it.

    I'm talking about the matter of resisting low wages and inferior conditions imposed on and accepted by migrant workers. Of course there are already some measures and standards, but to big it up and strengthen measures is actually important.

    It is in the interests of the existing workforce that this is done. Some are so dumb they can't see that but it is.

    The Labour Party have recently highlighted something the other parties have not done enough. UKIP included and I'd say especially bad of UKIP, the party which apprently has the greatest concern over economic migrant control.

    Plenty of parties fall outside the Westminster bubble and predictable PPE product and do actually care about the working man (not women though?):confused:

    Vote for one of these then, rather than a single - issue party led by another product of the English public school system. Just because he smokes and drinks doesn't make Farage a 'Man of the people'.

    It's sad that when some people in England (and it is England) decide to stick it to the political class, they choose the most right - wing party they can get away with without actually being labelled racist.

    The two questions I raised in my earlier post:

    Do the people of this country want to continue to be governed by Europe?
    Do the people of this country want immigration capped or stopped?

    These two question are the catalyst to UKIPs ascendancy in popularity. It is the two questions that the big three parties have constantly brushed aside for years insisting that the people are wrong and that they know best. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your point of view, UKIP have shoved the issues so far up the noses of the big three that now they can't make them go away. They are now being forced to confront peoples concerns and they clearly do not like it, concerns that they really do not want to hear as they do not fit their ideology or personal designs and desires. After all, they are only in it for themselves first and foremost!

    Or simply because they might face the challenge of making the economy work with less foreign (--> cheap) workforce.

    Apart from the Greens, the parties you list get next to no votes, which suggests that while they may care about Ordinary Working People, they don't understand them.

    Quite disjointed, those communists, it would seem. Need to watch them in case they join forces. Who knows what could happen there.

    :) I was thinking the same as well as looking at 'the Socialists'.

    In fact I found that wiki page and there are a lot more individual left leaning parties than right. Very disjointed......
