EU Elections 2009 (update 12.48am)

UKIP have so far (as of 12:48am)got 6 MEPs (2 in Eastern, 1 in East Midlands, 1 in London, 1 in North West and 1 in Wales.

UKIP will probably get a good amount of seats in both the South East and South West regions, since they are very strong Tory areas. Labour as with the local council elections are doing poorly in retaining seats, which does not look good for Brown, with increasing support for him to resign.

The BNP unfortunately got a seat in Yorkshire and Humber despite actually getting less votes than they did in 2004.

The Elections counting aint over yet, so we'll have to wait and see the FULL results of these elections.

British workers strike in protest of foreign workers taking their jobs

When Gordon Brown made a speech on how he pledged that British jobs were for British workers back in June 2007, many within the British working class communities saw this with possible delight or possible suspicion.

Today revealed that 19 sites across the UK, British workers were protesting on how they are being sidelined for cheaper foreign labour from countries such as Poland, Portugal and Italy. Possibly due to the recession and credit crunch it is somewhat understandable that these companies may have to cut corners in areas to kept float in means whether redundancies or in this case replacing labour with cheaper labour.

This incident has a deeper hole than just labour and trade union issues, but with the general feeling that the working class especially the British white working class feeling abandoned by the Labour government. This general feeling causes many withing the working class to support and vote BNP and the tabloid press go on the crusade for speaking on half of the repressed working class.

The Sun paper sales drops below 3 million.

While most if not all of Britain's papers have seen decreased circulation in some form, due to the internet being a more efficient way to get the latest up to date news. The Sun strikes as the most affected in this drop, as quoted by the link above.
"The Sun posted the biggest month-on-month drop in circulation – down 4.81%, to 2,899,310 copies."

There are possible factors in why this has occured:
* More people are looking at The Sun website, in which with the internet is easier to provide with the latest news and updates.
* People are sick of the sensationalism and jingoism of The Sun in several areas such as Crime, the EU and terrorism.
* People generally tend to think of The Sun's journalism as medicore at best.

Despite the low price to buy The Sun (20-30p on weekdays), its not enough to combat the decrease in sales.

Predictions for 2009

As 2008 as been a hectic year in terms of politics and the recession and other things, what will be in store for the United Kingdom in 2009 A.D??

On the subject of the EU Elections, UKIP will probably make some increases in votes in certain areas, though not as much as in the 2004 EU Elections. The BNP may get 1 or 2 MEPs, but they will have to suck up to the other nationalist parties in the EU such as the Front National and Vlaams Belang.

On US Politics, When Obama officially enters the White House on 20th January 2009, there will be high hopes from all sectors of US society that change will come, though this will unlikely be anything big and Obama will probably not be re-elected come 2012.

On the economy, Im guessing job losses will continue throughout 2009, mostly occuring in the first half of 2009. The economy could start to grow back from the 3Q/4Q of 2009, but wont be back to pre-recession levels til late 2010/early 2011.

On Technology, The rumoured iPhone Nano may come out in Feb/Mar 09, though I would prefer to get an iPod Touch as I really have a mobile (SE K800i) . Also the netbook laptops will become more popular among the bargain hunter techies.

Sorry for the almost year absence

The post I did on this blog was nearly a year ago,the absence on posting here has been mostly due to work and the absence of what to write on the blog where would be interesting, yet not entirely copied from something else.

I will start to post on my blog again soon, but not just on UKIP/Young Independence, but issues such as the growing multi-culturalism/multi-racialist of Britain, Islam, the incompetence of the Brown/Blair New Labour government.

Single Issue David Noakes resigns from UKIP

Noakes was one of the four candidates to become UKIP leader, after Roger Knapman stood down.
Noakes agenda was to have UKIP be completly focused on getting out of the EU, which UKIP has been stereotyped by the main 3 parties as being a single issue party.

Farage was elected instead, and since then UKIP has become more broaden with its policies, on domestic issues and yet still supporting the UK leaving the EU. This has given UKIP more members and more media coverage, and UKIP have been getting better results overall in local elections, placing 3rd or even in some cases 2nd or close to 2nd.

Many UKIP members and supporters will see Noakes as the old UKIP image of "just getting out of the EU" and not wanted in the UKIP party today.
