There were still tick boxes on my ballot paper for BNP and Britain First (a splinter group who had to leave BNP for being too middle ground!).
Yet swathes who voted for them (and Lib Dem, Labour and Conservative) last time have moved to UKIP.
It could be that they have decided to run with the ones who stand a chance or it could be that they are being offered a chance to vote for immigration control without the racism.
Though really it is probably because they are fed up with lying politicians breaking promises (Farage hasnt had his chance to do it yet) and want to try and exercise some power over them, voting UKIP is the way that the media presented to them, to achieve this.
You talk a good game and you're doing a good job constructing a scenario in which your logic stands up. I will not entertain it and it is not my problem that you don't like the true name of these views and how ashamed people should be of them.
Whatever the labels in my view the leopard doesn't change its spots.
