Anyone so thin-skinned/modish/PC as to worry about "racism" would be best advised to avoid the typical Conservative Club bar...

I think the other poster means "How do you make this assertion about UKIP & racism with such confidence" - good question. Not that a charge of "racism" (however that is to be interpreted) means much outside student unions, The Guardian and the BBC...
What next: UKIP supporters eat babies/hamsters and have poor personal hygiene?

Yes.

I say, couldn't you girls confine this banter to the Ladies' cloakroom?

"Wet" certainly fits you, though "conceited idiot" is preferable.

No mention of that C4 "abortion of a programme" mockumentary on UKIP should include any comparison with the work of Leni Riefenstahl (nb sp...) who was clearly an apologist for Nazism and known to have been pally with Hitler, but also a brilliant film maker. I share Ian Dale's puzzlement at how C4 got away with showing such a dire, crudely constructed, grossly propagandist effort.

Good common sense: "People change to fit the benefits available." The Left will always say benefits evolve to fit those who need benefits, but everyone knows that to some extent it's the other way around: create a hugely complex overarching benefits system, and - shock! horror! - huge numbers of people will come forward to claim benefits, often in bewildering combination.

"..a sympathetic view of the state....[etc]...This is much closer to traditional One Nation conservatism than Thatcher’s own."
Indeed, and barely distinguishable ISTM from the LibDems.
"Do Good Right conservatives have more in common with many on the left than with libertarians?”
Yes.

Agree too. Freedom would be nice, a Party dedicated to restoring respect for political liberty by reducing the State and maximising individual freedom.

Really? But I suppose your rather excitable damning of Breitbart is par for the course... Breitbart is one of a number of political sites/blogs I try to visit daily, and it's useful. Today, it has such subheads as, "Green Party: the First Hundred Days - New Blow For Miliband As Senior Labour Figure Says She Will Be Voting UKIP - Syrian Doctors: ISIS Jihadists ‘Demanding Viag*a,’ Lingerie for Wives and Slaves - Saudi Cleric Argues That the Sun Revolves Around Earth - Now They’re Coming For You: Games Press Finally Turns On Developers - Judge Criticises Council that Took Child into Care over Father’s Links with English Defence League...
Not particularly different from a similar list one might cull from – say - the Telegraph site. In fact Breitbart is somewhat more mature I'd say, given that the Telegraph has been moving downmarket and might soon rival the Mail in trashiness & triviality.
