    Live in an area where almost every other house has a UKIP sign, while not as disgusting as thw BNP they are just kind of pathetic but walking past them every day makes sure that i will vote in this election, probably vote Greens.

    As far as the EU goes, I am a strong supporter on principal, nation states never did much good for anyone but obviously on a pracitcal level it is obviously deeply flawed but Britain leaving would be plain silly in the modern world.

    I'd never describe myself as pro-EU and there are plenty of things I dislike it but leaving would be a disaster

    The BNP's problem, and why they will always be the sick joke of UK politics, is that after 30+ years of , on the whole, peaceful integration, there are too many of their target audience who won't look beyond the fact that they have friends/family/folk they otherwise respect from ethnic minorities, so they'll never gain any significant level of support

    UKIP are more insidious and therefore more worrying but unless they can get a decent orator, some sort of latter day Oswald Moseley, then they are only a minor irritation as well

    What I find surprising is that those who are understandably disaffected over the expenses issue are not being swept up by the greens and they need to have a long hard look at themselves - they should be cleaning up here (I shall be voting for them on principle) but they strike me as either totally disorganised or perhaps simply lacking ambition - they've been handed the best electoral opportunity they've ever had yet they appear to be doing jack**** with it

    From my three years galivanding in the UK, the greens live in their own universe. They have failed to see thrpugh the bulls**** line that its working class northeners that support the BNP, failed to put together a real grassroots movement north of Plymouth, and basically come across as really easy to pigeon hole as namby pamby hippies.

    Join the SWP, at least they run cool protests

    As you'd expect, Labour get the most votes in NE but their share is down hugely. BNP have a 9% share

    Apparently UKIP have come second in my council. Fear the BNP might take a seat in the North West.
