In two weeks the people of Great Britain will elect a new government. The good news is that the notorious anti-immigrant UKip is slowly, but surely declining in its attraction to the people of England. The leader of UKip, Nigel Farage is in trouble and may not even win the district in which he must win in order to serve in Parliament. His UKip won about 37% of the vote in elections for the European Parliament, but latest polls indicate only about 13% of people in Great Britain will vote for it. UKip believes that all economic problems in their fair land will end once those terrible immigrants can no longer come to merry old England. Of course, those dirty old immigrants do the jobs that native born Englishmen refuse to take such as picking up the garbage of picking crops. In modern times those who most oppose immigration are those who most oppose any sort of work that entails hard physical labor. Perhaps, we can make robots to do that work and then dispense with those immigrants.
The race is a tight one between the Labor Party led by Ed Miliband and the Conservatives led by David Cameron. At this point, Labor has 36% to 33% for the Conservatives. At least give some credit to David Cameron who summed up the UKip very succinctly: “a bunch of fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists.” Enough said.
