Storyline

In May 2015 the Euro-sceptic UK Independent party wins the election and comes to power. British born and educated Sikh Deepa Kaur is elected the MP for Romford and becomes the party's poster girl, accentuating her patriotism over her ethnicity as increasingly harsh raids are carried out on anybody suspected of being, or employing, illegal immigrants. As the party pulls out of the European union jobs suffer, affecting Deepa's own family, and anti-UKIP groups clash with right wing factions in the capital. Matters come to a head when a young boy, Sadir, is injured during a raid but still accused of assault on the police. Deepa realizes that it is time for her to put her principles above her political ambitions and speak out. Written by don @ minifie-1

If this was a mockumentary then the makers of this Channel 4 drama need to get tips from Christopher Guest.

UKIP: The First 100 Days mixes archive footage of party leader Nigel Farage and other real UKIP members with fictional scenes played by actors in the aftermath of a UKIP general election victory.

Although UKIP stand on an Anti European platform the programme concentrates on their anti immigration policies which surprise surprise does not affect Europeans but people who are black or brown. Mixed with this is that soon after the election, investment is pulled out as factories close down as they relocate elsewhere.

The programme concentrates on an female Asian woman UKIP MP who is seen as a rising talent but suffers a crisis of conscience when she sees the divisive impact of UKIP's policies on immigration in action, such as Asian establishments being raided on a regular basis leading to riots. Even her own brother turns in opposition to her.

The film is very much I expected going for the easy target of immigration without any satire. For example why not show scenes of an Indian restaurant being raided every week with the same waiters and chefs showing their UK passports only to repeat the process seven days later.

The film also does not look at the chaos that would ensue as they negotiate a withdrawal from the EU (it was only touched on with a factory closing down) or even Scotland wishing to withdraw from the UK again. There was so much that could had been done and so little achieved.

In fact the biggest joke was Neil Hamilton being portrayed as Deputy Prime Minister.
