Are Ukip going to become a branch of Trump's Republican party?

It seems that Donald Trump's election may we; become a feature of UK Welsh politics
Ukip the party that claims that it wants a an UK independent of Europe seems to want to make us a client state of Trump's US with them as  the equivalent  of the Republican party.
Nigel Farage's decision to go to the US to meet Donald Trump. maybe has proved what this "British Patriot" will surrender 
With Minister Carwyn Jones attacking on him for a Poppyless photoshoot
Mr Jones said the MEP should have been at UK Remembrance Sunday events rather than "on a jolly", calling him a "grinning poppy-less popinjay in a gold lift".
I am one of those who has blogged against Poppy Fascism and support anyone's decision  not to wear a poppy.
But Farage would be outraged by any other Politician from the UK who failed to wear a Poppy last week.

Donald Trump and Nigel Farage

A UKIP spokesman described Mr Jones's comments as "look-at-me vapourings".
Hopefully some one can explain what this means.
Mr Jones said: 
"This weekend when people from every walk of life joined to commemorate our war dead in services around the country, there was one conspicuous absence. Nigel Farage."You don't get to appropriate the Battle of Britain in your campaign literature, only to prioritise transatlantic photo-ops a few months later."Mr Farage likes to play by a different set of rules, this much is true. But in what universe do we let go, without comment or censure, the pictures of this grinning poppy-less popinjay in a gold lift with Donald Trump?"
He has a point and we can only wonder what would the reaction of the Mail or Sun . If Jeremy Corbyn had rushed off to congratulate Hilary Clinton and not wear a poppy.
Instead they attempted to smear Corbyn 
Mail Online published “Is this really the day to audition for Strictly, Jeremy? Corbyn appears to dance a jig at the Cenotaph as he waits for the Remembrance Day parade”, and thus doubled down on the lies by claiming that Jezza was waiting at the Cenotaph when the shots were taken, although he wasn’t. The Murdoch doggies at the Super Soaraway Currant Bun were also on the case. 

Meanwhile our own Wales Online  reports that 
Under the headline, 'Welsh Donald Trump welcomes Trump', Ukip's South Wales Central AM Gareth Bennett has blogged on his webpage and invited him to the opening of his constituency office.
Mr Bennett generously admits that
 "Don Trump has a rather bigger job on his hands, having been elected as the 45th President of the United States". "I would like to invite Donald Trump to join me at the opening party for my Constituency Office, which is on the 7th December at Gelliwastad Road, Pontypridd.

Modestly he writes

 He writes: 

"I would like to congratulate the new President-elect of the USA, Donald Trump. Especially as we have a few things in common.
"Not sure if you remember this, but back in March, when I was running for the Assembly, the Western Mail called me ‘the Donald Trump of Wales’ . (This was their idea of a really harsh insult.)"
(The quote was actually from the Latvian Honorary Consul to Wales Andris Taurins. Criticising Mr Bennett's comments on immigrants and litter, he said: “Please withdraw your silly, ill-thought-out, stupid comment or you run the risk of being the labelled the Donald Trump of Wales.”)

In his blog post, Mr Bennett continues:

 "The only problem is, following the petition against him entering the UK back in January – signed by more than half a million people, and backed by numerous MPs – is President-elect Trump actually allowed to enter the country?"This petition was signed by so many people that it sparked a debate in the House of Commons."Many MPs expressed derision for Trump (who was not yet the Republican candidate), generally based on his supposed stupidity and lack of intellect."
"David Cameron, who was Prime Minister at the time, came out with the worst quote.
Speaking about Trump’s plan to put a temporary halt on Muslims entering the USA (for security reasons), Cameron said Trump’s remarks were “divisive, stupid and wrong.”
"Clearly Prime Minister Cameron did not have the slightest notion that Trump could possibly be America’s next President.
You may find Mr Bennett delusions amusing , but already the media is becoming comfortable with a Trump presidency .

Soon he will be lauded and the Sun, Mail and Express will be calling for greater links with the US.

Especially as it becomes  clear we will need to find trading partners as we surrender many of our European Markets after Brexit.

Will Trump demand that we follow his policies and accept his terms for any trade deal? You Betcha.

The biggest supporters will be Ukip of course , who will  gleefully surrender sovereignty to the US so long as we accept the Alt-Right agenda coming out of Washington

  1. Cameron has form in relation to predicting results. He was surprised that he won the election hence some of the things he promised during the election campaign expecting to blame the Lib Dems in a new coalition for not getting them through and of course the referendum result.
