  Resolved Question: Why do people seem so
I was watching question time tonight with Nigel farage, the leader of UKIP on the panel. I couldn't believe the ignorant views that he put across and how people would just agree with whatever he says. He acts as though, when Bulgaria and Romania join, all of their immigrants to the EU would flock to Britian and no other EU countries. When he is faced with facts and figures he doesn't seem to get involved with the argument. As a Scot, I find him entirely uncharasmatic and so my other question is, how can people blindly support him? @bethany-I strongly agree with your point on counter racism. In te uk we can't seem to do anything about non-whites commenting crimes without being called racist but where I live this rarely happens with people native from the Eu and normally happens with Indians/Pakistanis, so the EU isn't the problem here. As for the first answer, I'm patriotic but I have to admit, the British empire won't be coming back, the EU on the other hand is a potential superpower. And I also disagree with Nigel's view on benefits. He seems to believe that immigrants claim vast amounts and criticises them however only a very small percentage do and I personally think that we should be focusing on 'British' families who have lived solely of benefits for years with no good reason. I wrote "as a scot" because I've seen people accuse people who aren't 100% against immigrants immigrants themselves. As for Bulgaria, correct me if I'm wrong but, while they have been guaranteed a place in the EU they don't officially join till later in the year do they not? Sorry, I don't know much about that part of europe.

  Resolved Question: Could Nick Clegg be he
When he took office as the UK's Deputy PM on the 11th of May 2010 Nick Clegg said he would step down about a year before the next general election (07/05/15). Since climbing to the top (well nearly) of British politics Nick Clegg has become one of th mot hated people in Britain. He probably stands a fair chance of loosing his seat, I know Sheffield Hallam well and his popularity is now incredibly low! I have a sneaky suspicion that he is all to aware that on the 31 October 2014 Jose Manuel Barroso's term as President of the European Commission expires. Furthermore on the 1st November 2014 there will need to be a new President of the European Council as Van Rumpoy will have served the maximum of 5years. Mr Clegg is known for being multilingual, he is fluent in English, French, German, Spanish and Dutch. One of the main reasons Van Rumpoy was favoured by the EU elite was because he was also multilingual! I have a feeling that Nick Clegg will step down as Deputy PM, Leader of the Lib Dem's and indeed as an MP towards the middle of 2014 in order to give his party enough time to select a new leader (David Laws maybe) and for he or she to establish themselves before the next general election. I suspect he will favour the job as president of the commission (head of government), I think he's tired of being the bucket boy and has aways had his own vision of what he thinks the EU should be, less central regulation and big programmes but to also form a proper federal structure like the US, he even wants to replace Britain and France's UN permanent Security Council seats with an EU seat! He also claims that wants to make the EU more democratic and have one single elected president! I'm not saying any of this is right or wrong, I would favour British withdrawal from the EU but I know some people share Clegg's vision. What I am saying though is that I think it is very likely (almost certain that Clegg will end up with one of those 2 jobs. What are your thoughts, Clegg for President? Or do you think he has a future in domestic UK politics? Personally I think the potential 2014 Sheffield Hallam by-election should make for interesting results! Given that the EU Parliament elections are in 2014 (UKIP likely to clinch a majority, if we are to believe the polls) and that Sheffield Hallam voters are quite disenfranchised, could UKIP gain their first MP? @ Blondie: be careful what you wish for with the BNP. If you think we are having an economic disaster at the moment then the BNP's policies are only going to make it worse. Yes we need to leave the EU but we need to do it without damaging trade and the domstic economy and they are associated with violence and the politics of hate and division! Besides the fact they are on te way down, they are oosing seats left right and centre, they are not far from bankruptcy! In the EU Parliament they are non-inscrits so have zero influence, it'awasted vote, go to UKIP if you really want out of the EU, they are economically literate and are growing rapidly, they are the ones to watch! @ Jas B: Au contraire, I think the EU elite feel they need someone British to make their way to the top because they don't want to loose us because of our £50M per day. They can see that the British people are waking up to the reality of what the EU is and they don't want it. President Barroso has said at some point Britain must join the Euro despite the opt out and Nick Clegg really wants us to join the euro (his vision). It just seems so convenient for thm in many many ways. I don't want it to happen but think it will! It is also worth noting we have not had a Liberal President of The Commission since 1985, we are due one if you follow the pattern they sem to be following. Other than Guy Verhofstadt, I can not see anyone else emerging. I suspect it will be a case that Verhofstadt and Clegg are the 2 people for the 2 jobs. The Question is who will get which job?
