 European elections: Ukip under repeated fire – but it's not putting off the voters


Nigel Farage: UKIP

 

The headline "Will nothing sink Farage?" says it all.
For months the popular press and media have been conducting a campaign of smear, innuendo and plain untruth to persuade people not to vote UKIP at the coming elections. The anti UKIP rhetoric now reaches the point of desperation as the date of the European elections draws nearer.
I do not support UKIP and consequently would never vote for them, but it seems to me that our press and media are becoming more like the American media where negativity and personality assassination is the driving force and order of the day, rather than any 
consideration of policy.
