Why do people fall for the tripe UKIP roll out; or for the tripe any right wing political group rolls out for that matter?
I think they fall into two main camps; those that believe and those that want to believe.
Those who believe genuinely consider foreigners to be the root of all evil, human rights to really be anti-human rights legislation and that if they lie hard enough for long enough, people will believe the lie (anecdotal and to some extent objective evidence seems to support this view).
Those who want to believe are either lazy and cannot be bothered to find out for themselves, so just go along with the lie (UKIP and other right wing groups, including the media are very good at making the lie sound plausible.) or they aren’t well enough educated (not necessarily their fault and it is NOT meant to be an insult)…
