UKIP on 30% in South Thanet

Retiring Tory MP Laura Sandys was well-liked in parliament but an arch-Europhile and a dripping wet, so South Thanet always offered potential for Farage. Now she is standing down there is no incumbency factor either, and a seat-specific poll from Survation has the Tories down 20 points in third place on 28%.

Labour are up in first in 35%, though it is UKIP’s 24 point increase to 30%, just 5 points behind Labour, that is interesting. Arguably most worryingly for Cameron, 78% of UKIP voters said they wouldn’t vote Tory even if there was no UKIP candidate and 52% said they did not care if Miliband became PM. Voting purple puts red in, and the Tories are so far completely failing to convince voters of the consequences…

Via Survation and Mike Smithson.

    Vote UKIP says:

    Give it a try, if they get somewhere, then great, if they don’t well it doesn’t matter who else gets in, they’re all the fucking same scheming bastards, that will keep us in the EU and allow more mass immigration.

    Gawain says:

    Rather makes it an interesting three way marginal. That Labour vote is weak, and I can see Thanet Tories votoing UKIP as the way to stop Labour

  3. 3
    Little English People says:

    Lib / Lab / Con – they are all:

    * pro EU
    * pro immigration
    * pro high taxes
    * pro big state

    That is why voters from across the whole spectrum of political beliefs are turning to UKIP.

  4. 4
    Wait - what! says:

    Cameron has nobody to blame but himself.
    The same people that criticise Labour voters for ‘only voting for the rosette’ are those arguing that voting for UKIP will put Labour in, this is called hypocrisy.

  5. 5
    Steve Miliband says:

    High spending, Euro loving, immigration friendly Labour are the same as the Tories? Really?

  6. 6
    Officer Crabtree says:

    Who would have guessed that people are sick of the EU and it’s unfettered immigration? UKIP will rattle some of the establishment out of their cozy world.

    Plenty of working people have been pushed beyond their limit as they see their communities swamped by Eastern Europeans and the like. It drives wages down and overwhelms public services.

    Give UKIP a chance.

  7. 7
    Man from the street says:

    Nigel Farage will be the MP for South Thanet post 2015, of that there is no doubt.

  8. 8
    Mick Granger says:

    The voting system is bust. The majority want a Eurosceptic outcome whether Tory or UKIP but splitting the votes just lets Ed Miliband walk it.

    Well, here’s your opportunity to point out the differences.

    The differences are subtle, but real nonetheless!
    Ed Balls as Chancellor, throwing our hard earned around like confetti?
    They have even pledged to restore that most absurd of benefits, the EMA!

    The Tories have lost the plot, but Labour do have a genuine plot and it is to finish the job of destroying this country!

    With the Liblabcon -men we have been living in a fantasy land for decades.

    The massive disadvantages of immigration have been virtually ignored by all of them. They should be shot in front of their grubby, arse-licking supporters.

    Ed Miliband says:


    As long as UKIP and the Tories fight each other I can repeal the Bedroom Tax and stop these nasty welfare reforms.

    Cabbage says:

    High taxes & clobbering those who have actually managed to make it in life with ludicrous & pernicous marginal rates of tax is Cameron’s philosophy. I’ll never vote for that liberal to$$er again that’s for sure.

  23. 23
    Arse says:

    It’s a meaningless mid-term poll, where the usual protest party (Liberal Democrats) are in government.

    How is Miliband worse than Dave? It is Dave not Ed who wants to open our doors to 75 million Muslim Turks. He says he will fight for that to happen. Exactly what part of that appeals to you so much?

    English nationalist says:

    Interesting numbers…

    Laura Sandys is a very decent person but quite unsuited for modern politics

    And Thanet will be on the front line of the Rom invasion so UKIP can only get stronger there

    They could win it depending on how Labour react to the Invasion

    Interesting to note in France, for instance, that the Left is being tougher on the Rom invasion than the Right ever was..

    Will our Yvette show some Ballls?

  27. 27
    Vote UKIP - don't let your granny freeze says:

    It isn’t that Dipstick Dave doesn’t have the guts. He actually wants it to happen. Why else would he be wanting Turkey, Georgia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan to join the EU?

  28. 28
    Chipping Norton Set says:

    Trader Garage should put Clarkson up as UKIP candidate in Thanet

    He could win it

  29. 29
    Vote UKIP says:

    The thing is, I don’t think Cameron even cares. It’s almost like, one term is enough and that he’s done the damage that he intetnded, job done, move on.

  30. 30
    well chuffed says:

    Once they are in that’s it. If it is so difficult to deport terrorists , what chance of deporting EU citizens. Any attempt to get rid of them or stop their benefits will be met by mass action in the various european courts , take years and slot gob and her ilk will make a fortune. It has been clear for a long time that the EU Sees the UK as a dumping ground for all the people some of the other members do not want.

  31. 31
    DAVID CAMERON outgoing PM says:

    Dave waits Three years doing nothing , then tries to bow to public opinion with his wishy washy , lilly livered back of a fag packet policy , that the EU won’t have any of

    Dave's Doubled the Debt says:

    We must hope for a pro separation vote in Scotland, Labour will then become an irrelevance over night which will make the ‘ vote UKIP get labour ‘ theme even less believable.

    wonkotsane says:

    “Voting purple puts red in”

    Except the poll actually says – and you wrote it yourself – that 78% of the people who would vote UKIP wouldn’t vote Tory even if there was no candidate. The remaining 22% of the UKIP voters who said they would vote Tory if there was no UKIP candidate is 6% of the overall vote which would put the Tories on 34% against Labour’s 35%. So even if none of the 78% who said they wouldn’t vote Tory even if there was no UKIP candidate wouldn’t vote Labour either, that would still leave the Tories at least 1% short of a win.

    He knows and we know that Brussels will not allow what he wants, so he has a choice. He closes our borders until Brussels agrees or he calls an immediate referendum.
    You’ll note he never says what he will do, only what he wants. Shifty specimen eh?

    Erm, perhaps if those employing people to pick fruit/vegetables paid a living wage, then they wouldn’t have any trouble finding British people to work.

    Every firm I’ve worked for has had no problem getting British workers, they just pay the market rate and associated benefits. Have you ever actually looked into working on a farm fruit/veg picking?

    It is seasonal, miles from anywhere, it is suggested that you live in tents, because it is usually miles from anywhere (you’re expected to pay for camping) and public transport doesn’t run in the early/late hours that you will be working.

    It’s minimum wage and if the weather turns and the farmer can’t plough etc., then there is no work for that day or days. I suggest people like yourselves go and look at the reality and blame the people that won’t pay a living wage, that prefer to import low wage immigrants and stick British people on the dole, which we have to pay for.

There is only UKIP that can stop Miliband in the north.

The big thing is the young Teddy boy in the lead, inspite of all the vilification of him pn this blog and the general right wing press. By the way that shows Dave Boy looking in a very pensive mood.

    Yes! Do keep up old fruit the EU cabal includes all three main parties. Labour will simply spend you cash on different bits of the EU Gosplan to the Tories. Both will willingly devolve more powers from Parliament to the EU People’s Congress. Dave will let in as many of the new EU citizens as he’s told to. Just wait till Turkey joins! UKIP are the last chance to defeat the EU fanatics not by winning the next GE but by remove Dave and then with their strong electoral polling narrow a Millibean administrations scope of action. I’m sure Labour will piss cash away and cock up with 3 years that will sink them for good and let a Conservative Party that is lead by real conservative win outright.

The Lib Dems have kicked themselves into touch by going into coalition with the Tories, they used to be the party of protest but they have tarred themselves with the same brush as the Tories and Liebore.

    That implies that 48% of UKIP voters do care or might care if Miliband becomes PM (not read the poll just your paragraph on it). That being so tactical voting could therefore occur. You would need only 10% of this alleged UKIP support to vote tactically (ie. Conservative) for UKIP to gain 27% of the vote, and the Tories 31%. If half voted tactically, i.e. 24% of the UKIP voters, the effect would be Toires 36%, UKIP 24%. Not that any of this matters as everyone sees what they want in a poll an they scarcely reflect actual voting behaviour when it matters. Then of cause there’s El Farage.

    How was the original workforce supposed to compete with somebody who is effectively working for £4.50 per hour?

    So how is Britain benefiting from all these British workers being thrown onto the scrapheap? Surely the only person benefiting is the factory owner.

    I think that is truly the measure of whether Cameron really is a conservative or not. Would he rather Ed Miliband win the general election, than give the people of this country a referendum before 2015?

    The answer is plainly YES he would rather Ed miliband win! Cameron is Labour’s best election tool.

    Labour could save themselves a fortune and refuse to even campaign in the next general election. In fact they would probably win bigger by not campaigning. The more the public sees of Cameron, and the less the public sees of Miliband, the better labour will do.

    Vote UKIP or else wot? says:

    Be fair, immigrant benefit addicts may have to wait a stonking 12wks before being able to claim a life on benefits, this restriction does not apply to single mothers with large families and a few dependent relatives and the disabled immigrants with large families and dependent relatives. Strangely enough we are seeing a massive rise in recent immigrants that fit the bill perfectly and surprise surprise they are entitled to everything free forever. If I were a cynic I would Daves cunning plans are not going to work and that the system encourages abuse and entices those able to exploit it to the full.

    This is great news – the best part is that some voters are following the Tory line that voting for UKIP will get them Labour. From the figures it is clear to see that ‘vote Conservative get Labour’. Just a small swing will clinch it for UKIP and that will be a fantastic breakthrough, with a message that resonates throughout the UK!!

    Will it be the same people who enriched Blair who will enrich Cameron as a reward for his services? What’s his expected career path post 2015 – a plum EU job, advisorships with banks and directorships with companies like Carlyle? Maybe he can join Blair in bringing war-is-peace to the Middle East.

    As I see it I have a choice at the next general election. Either I vote for the Euro groupie ConLabLib party, who represent the bureaucrats in Brussels, I put “none of the above” on my ballot paper, or I vote UKIP, who represent the British electorate. It would appear to be a no brainer to me.

    Do any one of you belief for one moment that if Farage won 40 seats, he would be king maker? Cameron and Miliband would form a grand coalition to keep UKIP out and their noses in the trough. So Farage is sadly on to a hiding for nothing….. Heads he looses and tails he looses.

    Hands off England's Green & Pleasant hills, Cameron says:

    Blair & Pressa got fat cat developers having a profits feeding frenzy on the English countryside.

    Cameron & Boles are doing the same.

    Both nulab and nucon are intent on dragging England into another Freddy Mac/ Fanny May housing boom/bust.

    So no difference there…

    except Boles is even more obnoxious than Pressa at his worst.

    He just doesn’t get it, the closer Cameron moves to the middle, the less difference between the three parties, the less people to the right of the middle care about who gets in, they’re all the same, the Tories haven’t a snowflake in hell of winning in 2015,. The only way Cameron can ‘shoot the ukip fox’ is to open up a big difference between the Tories & the others (like it used to be) & that just aint gonna happen with him in charge! (I use the term ‘in charge’ lightly, he aint running anything)

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
