    The Argus - Your Voice says the tagline - obviously NOT if your in the Arun District area.
    yes the argus is re locating as many of you know its not got many reporters at its brighton hollingbury office now its all down electronically in cyberspace... not such a problem " having a representative office like the Argus office in brighton centers of town was nice but the costs = more expensive newspapers
    so who did not vote Ukip in the euro elections ?
    Well I didn't, along with most of the rest of the country. Why do you ask?

    because i was told to vote tactically .. " what is tactical about voting for the parties currently in control that are useless ? UKip the new fresh approach ! ?

    Well as a result of this supposed "political earthquake" UKIP control precisely zero councils and won a quarter of the number of seats the tragic Lib Dems did. They don't have a good track record for holding on to their seats either so expect a backlash next time round.

    Almost 1 in 4 people who voted nationally (23%) voted for UKIP. Wonder if they will get 23% of UK MEP seats ? Can see UK greens not needing to go Brussels soon !

    Turnout 36%. UKIP share of vote - 17%

    So only 1 in 3 could even be bothered to vote, of whom only 1 in 6 voted UKIP

    Whats that - only about 5% (1 in 20) of voters went out and voted for UKIP.

    I see all the Socialist trolls are out again.

    Well done to UKIP. A strong second place in many many wards. Just more hard work to be done and however long it takes, we will rid the country of Socialism - the cancer of Britain and the British people.

    UKIP's local election vote share is actually down 6% on last year. Award for prat of the day goes to Ukip candidate Malcolm Pritchard in Hyndburn, who resigned from the party 50 minutes after having been elected (defeating his own daughter, a Labour councillor). Well at least he has a sense of shame.

    Oh I see, it was socialism that caused the crash, nothing to do with banking practices, silly me. Good job we haven't got socialist cancer at the moment, with the richest 10% getting richer by the day, whilst everyone else pays the price. Meanwhile public school educated city trader Farage and his wealthy backers feed off peoples' fears and insecurity, convincing them that it's all the fault of immigrants, gays and anyone else not stuck permanently in England c. 1956.
    Wake up Labour and take the fight to this mob, we need something better than simply letting the political agenda be dragged ever further to the right.

    Why is "everyone else paying the price"? 60% of income tax comes from only a top few % of earners. Under the coalition, more people than ever have been taken out of paying tax. The coalition put the top rate of tax up to 50%, and although it's at 45p now, that is more than Labour did last time round.

    The Labour front bench consists of many people who have never worked outside Westminster and have equally enjoyed "privileged" educations. Only last week, 60 Labour MP's were caught employing interns and not paying them. Numerous Labour MPs have gone to jail over corruption. The Milibands used the tax system to their advantage when selling properties, widely reported. Why is Margarte Hodge, scourge of those that avoid tax known as "Hodge the Dodge"?

    If you think that socialism is good for any country with its track record, let alone this country, you need your head examining.

    Good on ukip and good on the people that got off there behind to vote for a change anyone who did not vote can not moan . I am for ukip as seen first hand how all are services have gone down the pan the hospitals are rubbish now as my wife been finding out the past 3 years all doctors told to save money on tests and takes ages to see anyone have to fight or go private now days to get things looked into.
    Pay getting held down as over sea works happy to work for min pay nearly all the new aircraft turn round people at Gatwick come from over in euro land. I want my kids to find good work one day but will find hard to get one that pays well to get a home when all go to euro workers on the cheap.
    We can go on letting the uk getting taken over to pay for the EU or look after the uk and its people 15 million pounds a day back to the uk be a good start.

    If the government want everyone in the world (and their grandparents) to live here then why don't they somehow think how they can expand the land space instead of us all having to fight for a car park space or queue in a shop? These r soles are clueless living in thier gated mansions having to mingle with scum everyday! just halve the population and the day to day pain of living in this awful country maywell be sorted!
