UKIP Bullish Over South Shields Second Place

The maths does not look great for anyone except Labour in the rotten borough of South Shields, but then that’s what was said about Rotherham where UKIP managed to come second last year. A spokesman for the party was boisterous about their chances in the seat.

“UKIP expect the momentum that has been gathering over the past year to become apparent in South Shields, where we will be selecting a candidate who will work hard to highlight how the ordinary people of South Shields have been let down by the old three parties and Labour in particular. Those who want to send a message to both front beches know the best way to do it, and that is to vote UKIP.”

Sources in the party are hopeful of a second place: “it is well within our grasp”And the bookies agree…

UPDATE: Keep an eye on John Tennant’s  website. He works for UKIP MEP Derek Clark and fancies his chances as the candidate:

      A Message for all South Shields voters

      Come all the electorate throughout the UK
      It’s time to ignore what the LIBLABCON say
      Lets face it these parties have all had their day
      Our politics need rearranging
      So go out and vote UKIP lets sweep them away
      For the times they are a changing

      Not one of them listens to our point of view
      They’d sooner give our cash to the EU
      So lets kick them out and try something new
      We can’t afford this lot remaining
      Political rethink is long overdue
      For the times they are a changing

      They lied about Lisbon and promised a vote
      There all Europhiles and in the same boat
      Their treachery just bring a lump to my throat
      As each other they just keep blaming
      So send them a message and let them take note
      That the times they are a changing

      We will no longer tolerate lies being told
      Tax breaks for the rich but more tax for the old
      Ruled from the EU and our birthrights sold
      They ignore us when we are complaining
      If we all vote UKIP their out in the cold
      For the times they all need changing

        The BBC song says:

        The people’s flag is deepest red,
        It shrouded oft our martyred dead,
        And ere their limbs grew stiff and cold,
        Their hearts’ blood dyed its every fold.
        Then raise the scarlet standard high.

        (chorus)
        Within its shade we live and die,
        Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
        We’ll keep the red flag flying here.

        Look round, the Frenchman loves its blaze,
        The sturdy German chants its praise,
        In Moscow’s vaults its hymns were sung
        Chicago swells the surging throng.

        (chorus)

        It waved above our infant might,
        When all ahead seemed dark as night;
        It witnessed many a deed and vow,
        We must not change its colour now.

        (chorus)

        It well recalls the triumphs past,
        It gives the hope of peace at last;
        The banner bright, the symbol plain,
        Of human right and human gain.

        (chorus)

        It suits today the weak and base,
        Whose minds are fixed on pelf and place
        o cringe before the rich man’s frown,
        And haul the sacred emblem down.

        (chorus)

        With head uncovered swear we all
        o bear it onward till we fall;
        Come dungeons dark or gallows grim,
        This song shall be our parting hymn.

        The other BBC song says:

        An unbreakable union of free republics,
        The Great Rus’ has welded forever to stand!
        Long live the creation of the will of the people,
        The united, mighty Soviet Union!

        CHORUS:
        Be glorious, our free motherland! A reliable stronghold of peoples’ friendship! The Party of Lenin, the strength of the people, Leads us to the triumph of Communism!

        Through tempests the sun of freedom shone to us,
        And the great Lenin illuminated our path,
        To a just cause he raised up the peoples,
        To labour and exploits he inspired us!

        CHORUS

        In the victory of the immortal ideas of Communism
        We see the future of our country,
        And to the Red Banner of our glorious Motherland
        We shall always be selflessly true!

        Tha Eton Voting Song

        Jolly voting weather
        We are all europhiles
        We’re very clever
        And lie to you all the while
        You fell for our promise especially the CAST IRON trick
        We’re all from Eton, and you lot are all too thick.

        If you think I’ll claim back powers,
        You haven’t got a clue
        We’ll hand the UK to Merkle,
        There is nothing that you can do
        No referendums Changes through on the nod
        I am the PM and I’m a duplicitous sod

        As for immigration
        I know it gets on your tits
        I will flood the nation
        And pay their benefits
        I am from Eton; I am one of the ruling class
        If you don’t like it, you can just kiss my ****

          The Big Immigration Speech

          Dave, your immigration speech
          Will promise things out of reach
          We’ve not forgot the CAST IRON VOW
          And nobody believes you now
          Everything you say’s untrue
          The law is made in the EU

          The Tory troops you try to muster
          All realise the speech is bluster
          Your hope to shoot the UKIP Fox
          Won’t surface in the ballot box
          Now UKIP’s got you on the ropes
          And blown away all Tory hopes

          We’re all fed up pissed off and grumpy
          Sick to death of Ange and Rumpy
          We do not want your EU flag
          To us it’s just a piece of rag
          We want our sovereignty back
          Our culture, laws and Union Jack

      It is the people that should count.

      It is now conclusive that we have progressed from the age of deception to the age of failure of imagination.

      We are acting dumb struck and sitting back as our world is destroyed around us. Not the planet, but human level world. Our society, our neighbourhood, our safety, our governance are disintegrating. Why because the people are now redundant. They are not an essential part of the plans. The size and stupidity of the EU is beyond the imagination of the people, and the people are too insignificant in the imagination of the EU.

      The banking system is a fictitious arrangement that has been based on deception and nihilistic behaviour. Now it is confirmed that the deception has failed and the people are just blatantly being robbed for the glorification of the leaders. There is no future imagined only survival of the system. There is no input from the people that can change the system.

      To show the difference look at the words of Kennedy. Ignore the target he chose and look how it was expressed.
      1962: “We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.”

      He spoke to the people as the essential part of the equation and effort.

    Labour activists are preparing their postal votes in advance, just to help the poor people of South Shields who cannot read or write or walk to the polling booth, the voter does not even need to see the form, its all done for them. This is how socialists take care of the ‘working’ classes, the new modern easy way to vote labour without even putting down your stella or taking your eyes off the 60′ HD LED set to Sky sports.

    Thank you for the publicity Guido

    You are a true friend

    My new New Labour policy is to include Britain in the Rouble Zone

    I wrecked Britain once but I heave learned from my mistakes

    THis new experiment will include British passports for any pillaging oligarch (most of them are my friends)

    Free access to all those bent London lawyers

    Free money laundering with the biggest UK banks (now that Cyprus is gone pear shaped)

    And freedom from prosecution for any crimes committeed in Russia, of course

    The same will apply for Asian dictators (especially Tony’s) friends

    And, of cours, we will give food stamps to the Chavs, plus a bit of free beer I think

    You approve I assume?

    The EU has proposed a budget increase of £9.5 billion this year – more than the controversial Cyprus bail-out

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/eu/9956906/EU-proposes-9.5-billion-budget-increase.html

    That would cost British taxpayers £1.2 billion and leave David Cameron no option to veto.

      Who signed the Lisbon Treaty then?

      Hang the Labour traitors

      Is this why Blair and Mandy are running scared offshore?

      Is that why Banana Milliband has fled to America?

      Does he now have immunity from prosecution there?

      He would if he goes to I s r a e l…

          .. and without authority as they had already been voted out of office and therefore had no mandate from the people. The Foreign Office should just tell the EU to tear that page out of the book as its contents are void. Then we can start to do things our own way again.

    South shields will be more intereresting than Eastleigh in one important respect. In such a traditional solid labour seat, it will be useful to see what votes UKIP can take from Labour, I think they should do well against the tories and their poodles the Lib Dems. But it is in places like South Shields , generally regarded as areas of ‘instinctive’ labour voting, where there will be a real test for UKIP.Realistically a decent second will be good. But what percentage of the Labour vote can they take?.
