UKIP - The Rise Of Xenophobia?

Having had a question relating to UKIP policies, it led us to have a realisation that a majority to all of our conversations consisted of games and films and comics, with dick jokes thrown in to spare. Although these conversation topics are all interesting and fun, maybe it was time to tread into unknown lands, where we could explore other avenues of interest. Maybe we could even take politics for a spin.

As you'll see, this didn't go that brilliantly, but at least we tried.

Anyway, enjoy our chat about how the success of UKIP during the May local council elections could spell trouble if their popularity continues. We also chat about how confused we are at their popularity.

  1. Good sirs, I am honoured that you chose my humble question for a special. In short we have a party that is bad for Bulgarians, good for fish.

    1. And bad for my sanity, you should see the youtube comments, this one guy has gone to town, clearly we've angered the right.

      But that is quite alright, it was good fun to make, and funny to see people get angry about our work.

    3. Go for it, we've annoyed tumblr and the right wing and they haven't fired bombed us...yet. From here it might be plain sailing.

    4. Not a controversial one. Whataboutcynics Awards: Most popular blog/podcast, favourite comment made by a commentator, worst idea (this one), best idea (taking no notice of this one), you get the idea.

    5. I like the concept, I'll suggest it for the Anniversary if we have enough material to fill it out. I do love pointless awards.

      Also, yours was the 500th comment on the site, so if nothing else it is special for that reason.

  2. A Nazi salute or reaching for a friend's phone? (See UKIPS Perfect Candidate - Russell Howard). As a rule of thumb, if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, its not a giraffe.

    1. Though that suspected Duck will spend a lot of time arguing that it isn't a Duck, but all Duck policies are right.

    2. On balance, are you ok with the response to your special or will you avoid politics in the future?

    3. Personally I'm absolutely fine with it, perhaps even a little spurred on. Their arguments were all loaded around prejudice, and I didn't quite realise how "on the rise" these opinions are.

      I'll happily cover the 2014 US mid-terms and the 2015 UK General Election, and any nutters in the meanwhile who try and influence British politics.

  3. I thoroughly enjoyed your 'Obama night' so will look forward to that.

    1. Thank you, hopefully we can look forward to a Democrat swinground, but I imagine unless something drastic happens it'll stay roughly the same.

    2. Wayne Evans is kicking off again on Youtube.

    3. Yeesh, why did the only two people who decided to speak up have to be the two cheerleaders of UK Independence, bigotry and sensationalist racism.

    4. Put it this way, I wouldn't bother friending him on Facebook!
