UKIP is looking at a real chance of placing our front man Nigel Farage as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
This could happen after 2015 elections if UKIP will form a government with Tories or Lib Dems.
Lib Dems are actually quite a funny set of folks. They seem to have no strategic plan other than tactics required to sell themselves most efficiently. Opportunists, if UKIP is able to secure enough wealth to keep them happy, can be instrumental. Lib Dems are mercenaries of politics; it is quite dangerous to let them wield real power for too long. Mercenaries go nuts with power.
Tories are confused. As soon as any of them realise it is not the spoon which bends, they realise we, at UKIP, are the Tories now. I mean, it is that simple and I belive it to be true, UKIP stands for what the traditional common sense folk believes in. With that assumption, there's nothing but time for UKIP to become Tories. The process should be accelerating, perhaps geometrically.
If none of that happens before 2015, Nigel is able to run for another two or three seasons. He will become like very old wine, sourer and more expensive, but nonetheless wiser and more capable. One of my favourite sayings is this: if you sit on the bank of the river long enough, you will see the body of your enemy floating by. Nigel can do it.
More interesting is, what he will do after becoming PM. He can then become Nigel Farage, one of the prime ministers of some island country. Or, Nigel Farage who introduced The Constitution of United Kingdom and kicked off the new British Empire. I would give a lot to have that choice.
I was born in socialist Poland during Cold War. I grew up on Science Fiction. I'm in XXI century now and my flying cars have been stolen, replaced by the security farce at the airports.
The same socialism I was born under slowly crept into Western politics and now we have a choice between socialists from Tory or socialists from Labour or socialists from Lib Dem. I despise all forms of socialism, apart from the voluntary. I have no problem whatsoever when people are offered a deal and they insure themselves voluntarily. Insurance is a service coveted by many people, but it should never be forced as something mandatory, especially not by the government.
I have two daughters now, I don't want them to live under socialism, please. It sucks.

I don't know when I started to think, but I believe I was free to think from the day of my creation. It is my natural right.
A few years ago I started a kind of hobby: Objective-C programming. First on Macs, then iPhones and the rest of iOS devices. Apple engineers created beautiful language with first class development IDE and solid API running on best hardware on the planet. Amazing hobby, and I've never been so creative in my life. I have tons of ideas, and enough wisdom to store the best of them. Some of my ideas could become patents.
I do not understand the logic of patent laws. Why is wheel not ok to patent, but 5 wheels combined are? It is my natural right to have any idea I want, by ability to think inside my head. When we give anyone the right to dictate what is not in our heads, they can decide to remove our frontal lobes too, can they not? It is our natural right to exploit ideas we have, however we please, as long as we do not hurt others in the process.
It is our natural right to hide our ideas from others: keep them secret, keep them safe; if you prefer ;)
Preventing me from having certain idea by putting this idea in some place with limited public access is an obvious infringement of my freedom to think, it is not something I want to be done to me. Current US patent law is not compatible with Ultimate Law.
