UKIP leader in desperate fishing expedition: ‘No difference between the parties, so you may as well join us’

Farage“Dear Councillor,

“There does not seem to be very much difference between our three main parties these days.  This is hardly surprising as 75% of our laws are now made by the EU with little or no input from Westminster.

“As you must realise local government is in a poor state too with a new unelected layer of Regional Assemblies and voter disenchantment.

“In UKIP we believe that it is essential for the UK to become self-governing again and for voters to want to participate.  We are developing as a broadly based real party of opposition, the only one saying what most people think.  (See www.UKIP.org for a full range of policies)

“With the local elections in May we intend to build up on local government representation and would welcome a conversation with anyone that might consider working with us or joining us.  It is time to stand up and be counted.

“We give you an absolute assurance that you can contact us on a completely confidential basis.

“Yours sincerely,

“N. Farage

“Leader of UKIP”

Thanks to Richard Huzzey for providing us with this hilariously desperate e-mail fishing expedition from UKIP. ‘You are powerless, so come and be powerless in UKIP’ – who could resist that message?
