Town Halls cosy clubs for councillors

It is a phrase coined by Nigel Farage MEP, that between Labour, Tories and the Lib Dems, you can not put a cigarette paper between them on major policies.

From Cllr Steve Allison we find out that so close are they, they have joined together into cosy little cabals in town halls:

The Lib/Lab/Con is also united in their determination to hold onto the cosy club they have developed in Town Halls up and down the country. The lib/lab/con club operating in Hartlepool exists to make it very difficult for Independents or even worse any other political party, from getting any significant influence over the local government process.

The Lib-Dems and Tories would much rather see Labour controlling all the Committees in Hartlepool than have Independent or UKIP Councillors anywhere near positions of authority.

UKIP are frequently attacked by people who don't tend to understand politics or, indeed, policy, who say they just 'split the Tory vote' and let Labour get into power. When you have situations like this, surely it's more pertinent to ask the Lib Lab Con why they bother to stand against each other given that they agree on at least 80% of policy decisions; i.e that it should be the EU who make the laws, not Westminster.

UKIP are also accused of being a single-issue party who offer very little to British politics, which they are.

The expression, "you cannot put a cigarette paper between..." has been used for a very long time. Please don't credit the hapless UKIP leader with an originality he does not have.

People regularly used it when talking about the Tories, Lib Dems and Labour, did they?

Would hazard a guess you are more unlucky than Mr Farage. I mean, he's not a cunt like you clearly are.

Reply with whichever expletive you prefer, but I genuninely believe that the demise of UKIP is bad for British politics in general and British euroscepticism in particular. House of Commons aside, for several years UKIP progressed. It went from 0 to 3 to 12 MEPs. Now it is a total shambles. Never send a boy to do a man's job.

It's up to you. 'F off you C' as usual or proper debate.

'F off you c'. Well of course.

I would call you by your name except that you're hiding.

And talking nonsense. What would you rather? 12 MEPs including 3 morons and crooks, or 9 hardworking MEPs, 2 members of the House of Lords and an MP? I know which I prefer and I prefer the party to be without crooks like Mote and Wise.
