Ukip Votes In The EU

How do you judge a Political Party like Ukip?

You cannot judge them by any Election Manifesto; Ukip, in the full knowledge that they will never gain power, know full well that they can promise anything they want in a Manifesto. They can even pay to get their Manifesto "financially approved". The one case where, in a local Election, a Manifesto Promise had to be delivered - in Thanet Council - Ukip have failed, on the one single issue, Manston Airport, that they campaigned on.

You cannot judge them by any words; Ukip promises and guarantees are almost never, ever, backed by independent data. They are the Party of Lies.

So, we judge them on their actions. And how else to judge a Party by it's actions than to note what positions they take when it actually comes to voting? So we list here a selection of the more interesting vote choices by Ukip in the EU.

Ukip will, of course, claim that their mandate after the Euro Elections in 2014 is to do just what they do - vote against everything, even if that means voting against the interests of the British People.

They have no such mandate - in fact, just the opposite; If those who voted Ukip in 2014 knew Ukip MEPs would vote to block laws to protect vulnerable children, or vote to protect Tax Avoiders, we doubt that Ukip would have MEPs at all.

The usual Ukip empty chairs. When they show up they vote AGAINST our interests.
