UKIP Choose Speedwatch Candidate for Eastleigh

UKIP have chosen Diane James as their candidate in Eastleigh, a Surrey councillor and healthcare campaigner. After last night’s hustings she won almost 70% of the vote. Party sources are stressing to Guido that the fact she is currently a member of Community Speedwatch in rural Ewhurst is mere coincidence. See what they did there…

    Is that those self-appointed nimbys that object to people in vehicles making noise in their rural idils?

    If it is they just get the two-fingered salute as I drive past.

      A driving licence is a privilege, not a right???!!!!! wtf are they on? If you’re going to use ‘soundbites’ (I know you can’t use soundbites on t’internet but you know what I mean) then at least make them accurate. If you have passed your test then a driving licence IS a right.

        And? there’d be no difference from what we have got now would there?

        If you want change, vote UKIP. If you want more of the same failed policies that we have been lumbered with for the last 40 years, vote liblabcon, it makes sod all difference to the policies you will be given.

      “Maria Hutchings says that she would vote for Britain to leave the EU and would have voted against gay marriage. She also identifies as “pro-life” and says that she is not a ‘Tory toff’.”

      Sounds exactly like a Ukipper but is actually a sock puppet for the one party elite.

          Farage reckons UKIP are currently very popular, and the Eastleigh by-election could be an excellent platform for them and him – their most well known figure by far. He could rip to pieces the recent shambles on the refrendum and the budget.

          Why hasn’t he got the b*lls to stand?

          Farge not standing is tactical. If he stood you would get the usual “one man band”, are there no other candidates etc. I think it’s called keeping your powder dry untill something important comes along. 2014 EUSSR elections perhaps.

    Pre-Spin Summary : Eastleigh says:

    Reason for by-election: Previous Lib Dem MP Chris Huhne guilty of perverting course of justice over collusion with wife taking speeding points.

    Candidates:

    Lib Dems: Mike Thornton
    (Asleep at the wheel)
    Conservatives: Maria Hutchins
    (Motor mouth / anti-immigrant)
    Labour: John O’Farrell
    (Joke candidate)
    UKIP: Diana James
    (Member speed watch)

    Judging by voting pattern over past 20 years, there are some trends, but this time anything could happen.

    Will be fun to see what happens: 17 days to go…

Ralph Miliband on the English…

“The Englishman is a rabid nationalist. They are perhaps the most nationalist people in the world.”

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
