UKIP voters have insisted they did not sign up for a party that was going to include politicians who could almost pass for normal.
Tory MP Douglas Carswell’s defection to UKIP has left the party’s supporters wondering what the point was anyway.
UKIP voter, Wayne Hayes, said: “When I said I was sick of the Tories and wanted a red-blooded English alternative to establishment politics, I really meant it.
“I’m not just some run-of-the-mill Tory dressed up for a night at the Proms. I’m confused, angry and full of horrible visions.”
He added: “Carswell is just a bit ‘beige’. I know, I hear it and I don’t care.”
UKIP supporter, Roy Hobbs, said: “The UKIP candidates in the local elections were xenophobic, delusional, and given to wonderfully racist quips which most of us didn’t even understand were wrong.
“And now I’m supposed to believe a bunch of Tories can meet that standard of wild-eyed unprofessionalism?
“I don’t think so.”
