The 2015 New Coalition

Cameroons like to remind the disgruntled Tory right of a simple bit of coalition electoral arithmetic: Tories on 34% + LibDems on 8% = 42%, just about enough to form a government again in 2015. Well UKIP have been also been polling between 6% to 10% for over a year now. If those right-of-centre voters could be brought back into the Conservative Party embrace they would have a good chance of forming a majority government. UKIP have no MPs in Westminster under first past the post, they do however have plenty of voters for Westminster elections.

During the 2010 general election readers of this blog raised over £15,000 to “Get Balls Out” by supporting the Tory candidate in Morley & Outwood. On election night Balls survived by a mere thousand or so votes, fewer votes than the UKIP candidate received. UKIP HQ called Guido on the night and said if they had known it was going to be so close they would have stood their candidate down. Perhaps a formal pre-election pact is politically impossible. However the Eurozone is likely to fall apart in the near future, new arrangements will be put in place by the EU radically altering the existing structure. On that basis the government will be entitled to bring the EU referendum promised by both governing parties. If the LibDems refuse to countenance a referendum the Conservatives need only to promise an immediate referendum within a year of the general election to bring about an implicit electoral pact with UKIP.

If you think this is improbable you could be surprised. The Conservative Party’s main internal Thatcherite pressure group, Conservative Way Forward, has quietly changed its constitution to allow UKIP members to join. The unhappy experience of coalition with the LibDems has opened the eyes of many on the Tory right to the electoral logic of coalition with UKIP. Dan Hannan isn’t the only one who wants it to happen

        Yes.

        Maybe UKIP will make a difference in one or two seats but overall they are a bunch of confused socialist libertarians.

        I would have thought the boundary review is more important for the Tories and the fact they have a pro-EU man at the helm.

            The burka and other face-covering veils worn by Muslim women should be banned, the UK Independence Party says.

            Ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who leads UKIP’s 13 MEPs in Brussels, told the BBC’s Politics Show they were a symbol of an “increasingly divided Britain”.

            He also said they “oppressed” women and were a potential security threat.

            But Schools Secretary Ed Balls said it was “not British” to tell people what to wear in the street, and accused UKIP of indulging in “unpleasant politics”.

            Burka banning is not a socialist policy, it’s just an insistence that those in Rome do as we do.

            There’s an element of collectivism, but it’s really a matter of not wanting monocultural ghettos in our country, and not promoting behaviour that militates against integration.

            If it was up to the socialists, they’d mandate the burka for all, to avoid upsetting the goat herders.

            The right is much more open to compromises of this sort than the Left, who seem to have forgotten the communitarian basis of their “philosophy” in the mess of feminist and multicultural nonsense that they have adopted since the 70s.

I’ve come across quite a few of these fuckers in my career, and having a degree like that does not mean a fucking thing, not least because most of these public school knobheads have fuck-all common sense. One of my tutors (early 80s, redbrick uni, serious subject) also taught at Cambridge one day a week and reckoned that Oxbridge was seriously overrated. especially when it came to non-science/mathematics stuff. He was of the opinion that a First from Oxbridge was the equivalent of a 2:1 from our more humble alma mater.

    And how many floating voters will run from the Conservatives??? You know the people that run a mile from any form of idealogical or strident politics (as practiced by UKIP). Also it is bollocks to assume that UKIP voters are digruntled Tories. More like they are just plain disgruntled. They are more often than not, protest voters, who can’t stomach voting for the LibDems they way the wet middle-class voters do.

    To assume that their votes would fall into the Conservatives lap, because of an alliance with UKIP is bollocks. They would just go and vote for another bunch of hyper-ventalating old grey-hairs.

    And polling is bollocks, as usual. The Liberals have been polling well above that level in local elections, where UKIP haven’t made any impact.

Being accused of rape is bad enough, and he should have the backbone to answer those charges, but to witness his self-pitying, narcissistic and rabble rousing speech on the balcony of the Ecuadorian Embassy just sickened me to my stomach.

        Assange uses people for his own selfish and sinister ends, totally unconcerned about damage he causes. He was absolutely ecstatic at the adulation shown to him by the baying mob of “useful idiots” which had gathered to hear him spout his hysterical and paranoid speech.

        Every so called “friend” or colleague he has ever known has been discarded like a piece of garbage when they have been of no further use to him. I do hope the Ecuadorian government are using Assange for THEIR own purposes and discard him when he is no longer of any propaganda value. Being kicked out of the Embassy into the waiting arms of Plod would be sweet justice for a dangerous sociopathic shit like Assange.

This would help the Tories a lot but it would also give UKIP a slim chance of winning a few seats (currently it is 0 chance). And it would also give UKIP much more publicity and share of the vote – which could be very useful in future elections.

    A coalition with UKIP would be a silly idea and only serve to head off any potential (though not likely) successes by UKIP by getting them to compromise on policy.

    The Conservative party doesn’t want to be out of the EU and UKIP spend all their time saying entertaining and necessary things that are ultimately of little consequence. They can afford to say those things because they are a tiny party politically. Once any party is prepared to set out a detailed manifesto for how to leave the EU the public will take them seriously.

    Repealing the European Communities Act isn’t enough. Will we slide back into the EFTA or go it alone? Tell us how you plan to deal with international regulations. The answer isn’t difficult to understand it’s just that UKIP rarely seem to ever get that far in the process.

    The UK sits on many transnational bodies that decide global standards for all manner of regulations and laws like say, drinking water quality or vehicle safety, etc and at present much of it merely passes through Brussels with an EU stamp of approval. We sit on those boards and by and large represent the EU’s view not our own and the other EU members do likewise. It is a massive fudge both to game the process in the EU’s favour (by having lots of seats all saying the same thing) and a recognition that member states aren’t prepared to give up such seats to Brussels (it would do many of the political class out of a job by reducing 28 seats to one and member state governments would also fear being kicked out at the next election).

      English - not British says:

      Scottish independence would certainly put the cat among the pigeons.

      For starters the bent British establishment would be forced to acknowledge England as a real country and the English a real people, something the fcukers are loathed to do at the moment.

      Or perhaps the thickos in westminster think they could get away with pretending nothing’s changed in a rump Britain, and continue treating England as a migrant dumping ground, and the English as non-people.

        The problem is Alex Salmond thinks he’s in charge.

        For starters if we got rid of the jocks, they think they can keep the pound and have free access to the English central bank whilst the English pay for it. Then Salmond wants the nuclear submarine bases closed but wants the other bases kept open and paid for by the English. He also thinks Scotland doesn’t need to pay for its failed banks or its share the national debt run up by c u n ts like Brown, Blair and Darling.

        Then Salmond wants free use of English roads and railways again no payment towards them.

        Finally Salmond thinks there is no need for a border, but there is. If the jocks do fuck off (and we can only hope they do) England will have a land border with a foreign country for the first time in 300 years. That means we have no idea who could be entering England from Scotland and as we won’t have control of Scottish ports of entry it’s massive hole for terrorists and other dross.

        So border controls are essential, otherwise it makes a total joke of our security.

          Aunty, Just how many Border Control agents do you think it would take?

          From Wiki “The wall was garrisoned by auxiliary (non-legionary) units of the army (non-citizens). Their numbers fluctuated throughout the occupation but may have been around 9,000 strong in general, including infantry and cavalry. The new forts could hold garrisons of 500 men, while cavalry units of 1,000 troops were stationed at either end. The total number of soldiers manning the early wall was probably greater than 10,000.”

          OK – 10,000 soldiers, fully trained and armed with the latest technology, just to keep out a few hairy arsed Jocks (tip – they failed, miserably).

          Do you think DC would commit one tenth of that force?
          Where would the checkpoints be? Wallsend? Carlisle?

          Have you ever been to the Wall? I have, I have walked it extensively. If I wanted to, I could bring the population of a medium sized English town across the ‘border’ without being seen by anyone.

      The toytown Tories, all at a stroke
      Could cook the goose of that Farage bloke
      One referendum’s what it would take
      But that’s a move Cast Iron won’t make

    you lot are insanely obsessed with left and right politics. For the far (ish) right is more like the socialist left more than you’ll ever know.

    Think of the political spectrum as a circle, with the two opposing ends (far left & far right) joining at the bottom.

    hello,
    Everything is run by the CIA ,there is no such thing as left and right , the usa forces are defined in my humble opinion as “FRONTLINE FAT CLUB”they push terror onto the worlds poor and call it a crusade aginst terrorists ,its all fixed so that the rich keep getting richer and the poor starve.
    Israel is trying to obliterate itself ,taking bets on who can destroy them first by their own side mossad,the iranians will kick israel and us ass,just like the Vietnamese did not so long ago.

    Ed Balls (Labour Co-op) 18,365
    Antony Calvert (Conservative) 17,264
    James Monaghan (Liberal Democrat) 8,286
    Chris Beverley (BNP) 3,535
    David Daniel (UKIP) 1,505

    First, the UKIP candidate came LAST. Second, how do you know the votes the UKIP candidate got were ex-Tory voters and not BNP-lite? Third, going by your logic, perhaps the Tories should have a pact with the BNP, that way the Tory candidate would have had a bigger majority.

The Prime Minister feels the pressure:

“I have to say that after the events I have been facing over the last few days, assassination would be a welcome release.”



It was only a tiny tiny collision.
