UK Independence Party, basically they want UK Independence from the EU (obviously from the name) and they want to put a cap on immigration, not stop it completely but make it a lot more controlled, not terrible ideas, but most people hear "I hate immigrants" when they see anyone mentioning something negative on immigration.
Also, I do not support UKIP as I don't support anyone.

Because I find most Parties have about one good policy, and the rest are useless or just to help them out. This is over some research into them, even the BNP have some good policies but they're too right wing for my liking, I'd rather not have a party like that in charge. Lib Dem's weren't too bad but then ruined it for me when they decided to partner with the Conservatives.

I wouldn't say they are more conservative just more to the right. They are against gay marriage however but pro equal rigths civil unions and have been since before the Tories/Labour. Pretty much what American republicans are minus the religious bigotry. Farage doesn't even call himself a Christian.

Well that's why UKIP is doing so well. A celebrity chef here in the UK recently said that UKIP has stirred up British politics which it certainly has.
They differ on some issues but its not influenced by them but their supporters. The Tories are supported by large corporations Labour is supported by some large corporations and the unions. Their policies differ only to reflect this. However the biggest reason why people vote labour or vote Tory is to keep the Tories out or to keep labour out. Thatcher was such a polarizing politician she completely destroyed some peoples lives yet made others overwhelmingly better the tribal loyalty to Labour and the conservatives runs deep and that's why the UK is stuck in a two party system until recently.
Keep in mind that with the arrival of Blair labour turned into New Labour which is a centrist party not a left wing party. The Tories fought a loosing battle for a decade and then they moved to the centre to compeat with labour. They barely won only being able to get in government with the help of the Liberal Democrats. A small party which is now fast becoming insignificant. Now that UKIP has come along however and given voters a right wing choice that is not affiliated to the Tory Tribe people are giving them a chance. By the looks of things UKIP will win the European elections and go on to get 5-10 members in parliament by 2015. So far all estimates have been blown out of the water. UKIP only expected to get 15% in the local elections instead UKIP got 24% It will most likely sit around 10-15% in the general election at this rate.
Sorry for the wall of text if any fellow brits wish to correct me please do.

Wow thats actually great news, I knew that England had slipped really far to the left (Police not allowed to carry weapons for a time, who thought that was a good idea!?) but to hear theres finally a party that offers the other side, is great news for your country if you ask me, even if your the most hardcore Liberal in the world you cant deny both sides are necessary to balance out the scales of political power in a country and prevent total economic or social collapse

We are still one of the most right leaning nations in Europe. We are not a left-wing nation we are a right wing nation we are just kind of dragged into the centre right now. UKIP is putting a end to that however. It's happening all over Europe as well. multiculturalism and progressive liberalism has been a utter failure in Europe. Austria, France, Denmark,Germany, Netherlands, Finland, Britain and Italy are all waking up and all have rather large patriotic/nationalist movements.
In France and Greece it is turning nasty and unfortantely there could be a fair bit of violence. But UKIP is harmless as are the other nations. Finland in particular has swung pretty far to the right with the True Fins party almost winning the last election.
One thing I will explain which is fairly important. We recently had a election for Eastleigh. I think the previous representative (MP) got arrested or died or something so there was a flash election. UKIP lost by a thousand votes a very high second. Nigel could have stood in that election and most likely would have won due to his popularity. However Nigel is actually leading the charge in Europe against the EU. He pretty much united the European right to form the third largest group in the European parliament. Which is why Nigel is still messing around in Europe despite the fact that he could easily get elected into parliament. He intends to stand in 2015 and that is a sure win. But first he needs to expand his European parliament group see:en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europe_of_Freedom_and_Democracy
His intention is to break down the EU not just remove the UK
yet people call him a xenophobe and racist towards other Europeans.
He's even married to a German and has bi-lingual kids. He's quite a interesting chap.

Well this is very very good news, Im a US Air Force cadet, Ive been very focused on our politics because weve seen them go way too far left, to the point it has actually encroached on the freedoms I signed up to defend in the first place, Ironically Im a libertarian (We are a fairly Right wing group that believes pretty much in freedom before all else, Pro choice, the 2nd amendment, Flat Tax, less government regulations all around) and I signed my life away to defend freedoms, I gave up my own, to defend others, but theres been this stupid movement in the last few years out of fear, the belief that taking away freedoms will make us safer... Its not an easy fight... and I was well aware that England had pretty much given up position in the world to the EU, talk of switching over from pounds yeah? but I had no idea they were actually starting to fight back, Incredibly liberal the EU, makes me happy to see some kindve shift, not found of the violence though...

Ah so basically republicans and democrats for our country (sorry Ive been too wrapped up in our own political system to examine other countries as a soldier I have to be pretty focused on my own nation)... I didnt really think England had much of a conservative side? they seem a very... Liberal country, even police didnt have guns for a time?

Oh I'm sorry, because a few idiots get pregnant or get divorced, there doesn't exist true love in the world. The media shows us all the people who do it wrong, therefore there are no people who do it right. The media is all knowing.
What is true love anyways? You are comparing a FICTIONAL love with the most superficial kind of love we, sadly, experience. Don't fill a glass with the ocean's water and then say there is no life in the ocean, since there is none in the glass. Have you ever even fell in love? I have not, but I have seen people who despite all their arguments, their differences, they pull through and actually thrive in the harshness. And I'm not talking about horny 15 years old who just want to touch each other. Or people who give up on something because it wasn't perfect. NOTHING can be perfect here, in the real world, that's why love in anime seems so beautiful.
TL;DR: Stop giving a few bad examples and calling that the norm.
