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…

    Community Speedwatch?
    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 has just bottled standing in a seat he has contested before. He knows UKIP are un-electable.

        How else do you propose sending a message to the political elite then?


        • 42
          Plato says:

          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?


          • Misternedderry says:

            Why the fuck should he, UKIP are more than one man. They have an excellent candidate and the good people of Eastleigh should vote for her if they want to tell the EU loving elite to fuck off.

          Welsh activist. says:

          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.

        Common Purpose, Bilderbergers, Bullingdon Club – why won’t they let me join?
        It’s class discrimination again.
        The Pope’s gone so I’ll have a word with my new governor. I wonder whether he’s a Mason?

      Can the Grauniad also close that day as well please?

    Well it's a thought says:

    So new blood is not for UKIP, they’ll get tarred with the same brush, going with someone who has turned politics into a profession, looks like it’s stay at home time when it comes to voting in my area, shame.

    Good luck Dianne.

    May I behalf of the majority of voters in this land who are sick of being lied too and betrayed and being beaten into becoming ruled by Germany & France. wish you all the best of luck.

    I hope the good people in Eastleigh turn out in their droves to support you !

    Is she planning to tell the people who voted for her that she’s joined UKIP?


    Bit sneaky that.

    It is odd that the Conservative candidate Maria Hutchings appears to be the stereotype of UKIP:

    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.


    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…

      She looks a nice lady. If she were a plague rat
      She’d be less toxic than a LibLabCon fat cat
      Any Eastleigh voter would be blind as a bat
      With fewer active brain cells than a gormless gnat
      Deserving of a dirty great D on his hat
      To choose yet again some E U mafia twat

    Oh right. The biggest voting block, drivers & they select a candidate that gets perfectly safe ones prosecuted by Nimbys led by inexpert cops with kit costing all of us £5000 a pop! See http://bit.ly/MYsjt4 Eastleigh drivers take her name & vote anyone else.

    I live in Eastleigh, I got the Lib Dems flyer through the door. It showed a graph of the parties and their percentage points but UKIP was totally missing and was not mentioned once. It had Labour, Conservative and Lib Dem percentages but no UKIP……just saying…..
