UKIP Hammer LibDems Across Britain

Not quite the Croydon Spring Lee Jasper promised as Labour held all three seats in last night’s by-election, but the main talking point is UKIP coming second in both Middlesbrough and Rotherham. Joyce Thacker isn’t the only reason voters are flocking to Farage’s party. The LibDems were decimated, losing their deposit in Croydon North and Rotherham, in fact coming eighth there. When the Monster Raving Loony Party beat David Owen’s SDP he folded up the party…

      You’re right that is why UKIP can be used to bring about real change in the Tory Party, the defeat of Cameron in 2015 on the issue of EU membership even if it let in Millibean is a better outcome than 5 more years of Cameron. The Tory party would at last have to become a real Conservative Party and Millibean would be revealed as a total fraud along with his party within 12 months. Labour would then implode (especially if the Scots set up their own Peoples Republic of Porridge). Sometimes you have to take the longer view. The Conservative Party has got to be won for conservative values.

Even with Millibean in No.10 in 2015 they’ll have to cut benefits by at least £12billion over 2015 – 20 plus reductions in health and education to a similar amount. The old days of the public sector spending fest are over for good but no one wants to accept it yet.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/9711825/Charities-warned-to-stop-interfering-in-politics-by-new-watchdog-chief.html

    William Shawcross, the newly appointed chairman of the Charity Commission, signalled that he would step in to curb their political campaigning if they “overstepped the mark”, and act as a “policeman” if necessary.

    He also criticised the way many charities have become so “dependent” on Government grants that some have even stopped fund-raising altogether.

    His comments come amid concerns that thousands of charities have become little more than “fronts” for political interests and, in some cases, even the Government itself.

    The end of fake charities and an end to the Govt lobbying itself?

    “These three constituencies have returned Labour M.P.s for many years. We understand the concerns of voters during these difficult economic times. However, for the Coalition Candidates to come behind the BeeNP, and several to have lost their deposits is a real achievement.

    We must redouble our efforts, and to show our determination I will personally ensure that the Deficit for today will be at least £250 million. That’s £4 for each of you, including all your new immigrant neighbours.

    Don’t forget — WE ARE THE CNUTS THAT CONTINUED TO RUINATION OF THE U.K. “

      What is a proper Tory? What is one of them?

      The only proper tory that I have experienced in my lifetime was SuperMac in the early sixties, but I was in my nappies then, literally. They have been hunts since then, all of them, including mainly one, iroically biologically does possess – the Thatch. She was a right corner shop gossipping Tory hunt she was, one, to this day, still grasping at life, even though she is with the birds in the sky. A Liverpuddle death pathway for someone needed, methinks. Shoot me if I get like her, heard her nurse says she scream Adolf profanities all through the day, saying “shoot Kinnock, NOW!”.

      It’s never gonna happen…simply because neither Farage or Cameron will agree…..UKIP has no immediate possibility of achieving a breakthrough at Westminster or even getting a Westminster MP. What they are focused on is firstly the 2014 European Election where they may be the party with the largest share of the vote(certainly they will put pay to LibDems representation….not before time as that party has done more to sell the country down the river in the European Parliament than any of the other mainstream UK parties) and therefore get the largest number of MEPs and secondly to de-stabilise the Conservatives and put pressure on Cameron to keep tacking towards his eurosceptic wing and to conceded that referendum next year NOT in 2015 after an election that he won’t win.

      Cameron cannot afford to defy the LibDems though as if Clegg falls and Cable becomes acting leader he can rather than cause an election join Labour in Coalition for remaining 2 years of this Parliament and undo some of the Tory legislation(a thing Tory Backbenchers forget although they voted legislation to enable this to happen in the Fixed Term parliaments Act 2010)

      Some will be disappointed that the places they live continue to be shitholes, but others know that a Labour Government has always given them money, houses and holidays and turned a blind eye to the occasional cash job. They will not vote for anyone who threatens to end all that, even if the threat is never carried out. They ignore events like the re-opening of Redcar Steelworks under a Conservative Government (it was closed under Labour), and the quality of MPs like “Sir” Stuart and Vera Dogshit because the only government thing that matters to them is their benefits. I can’t condemn them too much for that, they are just making the best of the hand they have been dealt.

        Except it is exactly the middle class who are suffering – if you have savings, the interest rates earned on them does not even cover inflation, and you then pay tax on THAT!

        LieBores intention was to destroy the concept of the old “working class” being able to aspire through grafting, to be an expanded middle class, with their own houses, savings, dignity and pride. They have set back the true cause of emancipation by decades, and made public sector slaves out of entire generations. This was the plan. It has worked.

        Still, Rotherham love them. (see other rant on #228 about THEM!)

          Yes I take your point. I think the problem is defining middle class. And then we also have widely varying standards of behaviour. Not all are prudent savers. And for some hardship is directly related to the age of the wife’s car, the number and location of holidays etc. The prudent bank manager or school teacher of pre-WW2 days isn’t typical of today’s middle class. Also I wonder now where the line is between upper class and middle class.

    There are two conclusions that appear to be supported by the recent bye-elections. The first is that the Lib Dems are finished, and the second is that UKIP forms an existential threat to the Conservatives.

    i am not sure about either.

    On the Lib Dems, yes in 2015, there vote will drop dramatically. But the number of seats? I reckon they will hold a majority. They will run the campaign as a series of unconnected bye-elections, stressing how good a local MP they have, what they have done etc. etc. Further, in the seats where Labour is a no hoper, you can be assured that every recognised Labour supporter will be (and probably is now) getting a Labour vote is a vote for the Conservatives leaflets. There’s evidence for the Lib Dems holding in their strongholds (seats they hold or threaten to win): in the recent Council elections the Lib Dems lost massively, but won seats in these areas; in the Police Commissioner elections, it was possible in some areas to distinguish constituency votes, and the Lid Dem votes held up in strongholds.

    On UKIP, some analysing of their vote has been done. Their core vote is drawn from all parties, but they get a Conservative protest vote at elections perceived to be unimportant: this returns at General elections. Indeed, they could be more of a threat to Labour: if Conservative voters in seats in the North, where the Conservatives are mostly irrelevant, join with disaffected voters from the other parties, plus the usual “none of the above” voters, some Labour seats could be at threat.
