      Really interesting – I didn’t realise that so many were that close. UKIP could easily decide the fate of the conservatives. Cameron has never disguised that he is a Blairite social-liberal who is ardently pro-EU so I see little difference if we have Militwat and Balls in. Every year more than half a million invaders arrive – the Tories won’t stop this so what’s the point of them?

        See previous thread to get some idea of what UKIP would do in the SE of England, if the Eastleigh performance was repeated in GE tomorrow.

        NB: It is a very crude analysis, but essentially 8 conservative seats would be lost to Labour, UKIP would nudge into second in most SE constituencies. Demonstrates the problem of the vote being split, which is why it is important for people now to make up their mind which they consider to be the conservative party: either the Conservatives (center left liberal under Dave) or UKIP (center right libertarian).

        It would require only less than 0.5% further shift away from Conservatives to start getting UKIP seats in the SE.

        Am working on some of the other regions doing similar with the 2012 by-election results.

        There was one other tight seat at 2010 GE: Oldham East and Saddleworth. The GE result was declared void, and the seat was retained with a 10% Labour majority over Lib Dems in the Jan 2011 by-election.

      A tasty bit of ASCII art. Reminds me of when all bar graphs looked like that, and the world was yoing.

      There is something special about the Seven Up post, I think, which is that almost no one reads the text of the post. They’ve read the original posts and don’t want to read them again. Therefore they open this post purely so that they can have a look at, and add to, the comments — an agreeable pub fight to pass an idle moment when you’re back from the real pub fight.

      Guido told me that he thinks only 50 people care about the comments. I think he’s wrong about that, and that the number of readers of Seven Up demonstrates it.

        I would agree with you on the 50 count. If only 1% of the site visitors skim the comments, then that is > 1000 / week reading them. I would suspect more than 1% do read.

        As people consume internet blogs more, they will start looking at the comments more. Same deal with the news sites.

        Combined with a harvest from Twitter every now and then you get the presented story, and the combined impartial insight of many others.

      Today I saw upon the stair
      a little man who wasn’t there.
      He wasn’t there again today
      Oh how I wish he’d go away.

      It generally takes about ten years for the MSM to wake up to anything that’s going on, bit like having train drivers that can’t understand why metal horse always runs on rails.

Ralph Miliband on the English…

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



Left on Left says:

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.
