Political parties will unite for a public meeting against UKIP and the "poisoning of politics".

Members of Labour, Liberal, Green and socialist parties in Crouch End will be joining for the meeting on Tuesday September 9 at Hornsey Library, in Haringey Park.

The meeting, called Crouch End Stand Up To UKIP, will include speeches from Catherine West for Labour, Sarah Elliott for Liberal Democrats and Gordon Peters for the Green Party.

Organiser Terry McGrath, of Crouch End Hill, said the party "is poisoning politics." 

He added: “Our display of cross-party unity in Crouch End is saying that Haringey will defy UKIP's divisive prejudices."

"The poisoning of politics"? Politics have already been poisoned and the EU is the poison the politicians have used. The proof of that is in the demoting of the prime minister to that of a 'glorified' manager. He doesn't run Britain, Brussels does. If nothing is done, it's going to become a cancer. The only medicine to cure the poison and prevent the cancer from taking hold is UKIP. As with any good medicine, for it to do any good, it's usually hard to swallow - but then the truth always is.

How you can say UKIP are 'poisoning politics' is beyond the pale. It's lefties like you; unite Alongside Fascism, Hate Not Hope & the Socialist Workers Party that HAVE and ARE Poisoning politics. I've been to political meetings where people like you lot think it's their democratic right to hurl abuse at pensioners..........
.....disgusting, the lot of you!

Say no to the 'Left'..............
.....vote for decency, democracy & self determination.......
....vote UKIP!

If UKIP can stir them up like that, then surely it serves a beneficial function much beyond its own remit. That is, a recognition on the part of the older parties that they could achieve more by coming together likewise when facing more vital issues. There's enough of them in Haringey. That would be more likely to push aside what they (wrongly) consider to be an undesirable political force.

They are obviously joking - Politics has already been poisoned by the three 'main' parties to an extent where they are a joke. They obviously want to hang on to their gravy train tickets.
