This blog may appear a little selfish but when you consider the facts you'll discover it is just common sense.
Let's take this in stages. First of all you are here and no doubt are wondering whether UKIP might repatriate you should they get into power. Apart from the fact they would be flying against the United Nations charter, they are not wicked people. They don't hate you. It is not your fault you have been allowed in. The more intelligent (the leadership and many ordinary members) hate the successive governments who have allowed this to happen. We do not hate our newcomers.
If you came here legally, you are entitled to make Britain your homIf you came here legally, you are entitled to make Britain your home.e. We will deal later with the politicians who have allowed this tiny island to be swamped with millions of people.
Those, however, who have cheated and are here illegally, will be sent back. There is nothing in the UN Charter to forbid this, and dishonesty should be treated firmly.
OK, you are now settled in Britain. Either a Tory Government or a Labour Government let you in. Why shouldn't you vote for the one who did, rather than UKIP?
Have you been sick? How long do you have to wait for a doctor? Five days? Seven days? Doctors' surgeries are unable to cope with the huge influx of immigrants. So, like us, you have to suffer, and you will suffer more as both parties want more, and more, and more immigrants to flock into the UK.
Have you had an accident? Gone to the nearest A+E department at your local hospital, bruised and bleeding? How long have you had to wait for emergency treatment? 3 hours? Six hours? The queues will get longer. So, like us, you have to suffer, and you will suffer more as both parties want more, and more, and more immigrants to flock into the UK.
Perhaps you have young children? And tried desperately to get them into a good school? But find that schools can't cope with such huge numbers? More and more families are having children to be born British because of an unwarranted fear that the parents may be sent back! As I said above, if you are here legally, it won't happen! So, like us, you have to suffer, and you will suffer more as both parties want more, and more, and more immigrants to flock into the UK.
If you came here legally, you are entitled to make Britain your home.
The Conservatives say they will hold a referendum in 2017. Cameron promised one before the 2010 election and nothing happened! Nothing will happen after next year's election either. And, remember, that promise is only valid if Cameron is still leader of the Conservatives, and the Conservatives win the next election. In other words, it won't happen. Milliband, in the Labour party, also wants to stay in but he is more honest – at the moment.
UKIP want to withdraw from the European Union (EU). It's not just the £54,000,000 a day we pay into them; it's not just because of all the red tape they force upon us; it's not that we want to withdraw within ourselves. Our exports to the EU have always been low. Our enemies show figures of trade to the EU which include large amounts of goods going to Rotterdam in Holland (a huge container port) for onward transmission to the rest of the world – this gives a totally false figure. The EU sell much more to the UK than the UK sell to the EU. In other words we are in deficit to the EU. However, our trade with the USA is in surplus, as is our trade with Australia and many other Commonwealth countries. The EU constantly holds us back.
So, what would be the benefit of an immigrant voting for UKIP?
First of all, we would withdraw from a huge expense of £54M a day. It would also enable our businesses to expand without all the EU business red tape. We could trade worldwide without having to seek the EU's permission.
Without millions more flooding in, doctors' surgeries, hospitals and schools could try to cope better. Then, as they manage this, you and your family would be better off. It won't be quick, but it will happen. Without UKIP it will never happen.
Before the EU forced VAT on to us, our sales tax was only 6%. Our aim would be to reduce the size of government so we could lower not just the sales tax, but all taxes. Also to help businesses employ more by reducing the cost of employment. We'd also reduce the number of consultants in the NHS – are you aware that over 50% of NHS staff are of a non-medical nature? This is wrong.
So you should consider your position. Carefully.

I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.
