ConservativeHome Readers Increasingly Favour UKIP Pact


ConservativeHome’s post Euro elections reader survey shows that the reality of the national vote result was not lost on the site’s readership. Support* for a blue-purple pact has risen…

*Usual caveats about self-selecting samples.

      Indeed. And I always thought it required two parties to make a pact. The Tories seem to have forgotten that part.

      They want a deal with people they’ve spent months openly insulting?

      Hmm, not sure how that’s going to work out.

        Er, that was Vichy Dave.

        What remains of the actual Conservative party would not have an issue with it. In fact, I think they would be happy to merge with UKIP altogether.

          Rickytshirt says:

          I’m sure that many individual Ukip branches want no part in a deal with the Tories.


          • That’s a shame. If the 2 centre-right parties came to an arrangement they’d have over 50% of the vote. Labour would be in permanent opposition, a role they are admirably suited to. Dave and his europhile social democrat Westminster elite are all that stand in the way. Defenestrate them and an arrangement is possible.


          • JH312879812354 says:

            True, but they should not cut their noses off to spite their faces. Get rid of the bit of the Tory party that seems pathologically obsessed with appeasing Guardian readers and the picture could be different.

            If UKIP win Newark the old 3 will really shit themselves.


          • Rickytshirt says:

            They way things are going, I don’t think a deal will be necessary; The other three must change or die. The Lib Dems had their last rites delivered in the Euros and Labour and the Tories are gravely wounded. For the time being they should keep doing what they’re doing. It seems to be working.

      Gonzo says:

      Indeed. Tories are worried. There will however be no deal. Everyone saw how the Tories behaved toward the Lib Dems with the AV vote – the Tories won’t be able to get anyone else to agree to any sort of pact, deal, or coalition for a generation.

        I’ve just read the web page of Breitbart London. Reckons UKIP and Cons. are neck and neck. Breitbart is a good honest blog and I recommend it to you all.
        The People’s Army must get out there and vote. Cameron’s dismissive speech stating that a dog is for life and not just for Christmas is a dreadful slur on UKIP supporters. Is he also inferring that a safe Tory seat gives the winning Tory a seat for life without ever having to work for it again?
        Just remember who held the seat and what he did for greedy personal gain. That’s the Tories for you.
        On Thursday please vote UKIP.


  2. 2

    Why is it Jenrick can get away with making awful comments about “not needing a disabled daughter to know what it’s like”, but anything anyone in UKIP ever said gets picked over? You British and your by-elections, you are crazy people. You should be more like us and decide the result before you call the election.

        I’m concerned about IQ levels in the once Great Britain. Anyone else noticed that most tv adverts now use the cartoon format? They wouldn’t do that unless it worked!

          Quicker and cheaper than using live actors in a studio, even once you factor in the cost of raytracing the fur onto meerkats. Simples.


          • Jack Ketch says:

            Actually I am convinced that the play-school level animated TV ads are to avoid the race and sex issue. They also appeal to people with a mental age of ten or less, perfect for energy companies, banks, payday lenders and government health announcements on sexually transmitted diseases.

    Jezza says:

    The way things are going, UKIP won’t need to make a pact with anyone. A pact with the Tories could be the least worst option though and it might might turn Dave’s lot into real Tories again..


    • 24
      A1 says:

      This is going to happen. But it will be to turn UKIP into panzies, not cons into Conservatives.


      • 26
        Cheqemated says:

        Nope, it ain’t gonna happen.

        Here’s why:
        1) Dave is the Tory leader. Dave will make no pact with UKIp.

        2) Nige is UKIP leader. Nigel will make no pact with Dave.

        3) UKIP members want no pact with the Toxic Tories.

        If you have any other questions, do feel free to ask..

    This kind of horsetrading is exactly what voters hate about politics. Give voters the choice, not the fudge.


  7. 9
    Ukipper says:

    Don’t think UKIP will make the same mistake as the LibDems – Tories and Labour are 2 sides of the same coin- time to break with that – vote UKIP!

    Hilda says:

    Won t work. UKIP voters don’t trust Dave; if they had they wouldn’t have voted UKIP. On top many UKIP voters usually vote Labour.

      broderick crawford says:

      What about if the broken nosed streetfighter took over the Tories ?.

      The other Dave ,,,,,,,, Davis .

      D ‘you think Nige would go for a straight talking streetfighting man ?.

      I tell you one thing : Davis would have destroyed the LBC bogtrotter…..no Queensberry Rules pugilist he !!

    Not in my name says:

    Interesting to see how long the denial will last.

    Meanwhile, if you read the utterances from the EU, in Brussels the public view is that none of the EU scepticism expressed across swathes of the populatiom will any any difference. None. Nil. Nix. Nada.

    Business as usual, the Euro will finally be proved a triumph, ever more erosion of nations and the worst that can happen is that the great work will be slowed a little bit.

      Well perhaps if UKIP MEPs were to turn up occasionally and put forward their suggestions and even……..VOTE.
      Vote UKIP get a highly paid sit at home do nothing numpty who is laughing all the way to the bank.

        Village Idiot says:

        ..A vote for UKIP is a vote to show that we do not agree with the corrupt club that is the EU, and, the more trouble and discomfort UKIP MEP,s cause the eu parliament the better! They have not been elected to go along with the EU,or do its’ bidding!…If that means getting big payments to do nothing,so be it,that is the madness of this uneccessary,beaurocratic nightmare that only benefits those in its’ pay!….It is a layer of governance we could do without,and costly!

        You are thinking of the UK Parliament. The EU works differently.

    Can not see this as a big story. Tory and UKIP are the same peas in the pod.

    Dale Winton says:

    sounds good, make the tories listen on immigration and Europe and keep the grown up stuff of running the country away from UKIP

    The Tories still they will win it outright LOL !
    Delusional Dave should be in no doubt he is “Movin Out”

    with his gang of obnoxious ,
    out of touch , never lived in the real world , so called ministers
    Odious Gove
    Stubborn George
    Gobshite May
    Mad Eyed Hunt
    Unfortunately Millitwat (Balls’s puppet ) will win the next election and Liar Dave will be shown the door
    We will never get our referendum and the Federal state of Europe will continue to grow untill eventually civil war breaks out and the whole fucking issue implodes
    I just hope i am still around to see the architects of this master plan , making full use of the lampost around Brussels

    Depends if UKIp want a Labour Government without a referendum or they really hate Dave.

    ed milliband peoples representitive of somewhere up north i have to visit every now and again says:

    in doncaster railway station there is a plaque dedicated to tommy steeles and jimmy holmes founders of the labour party,i’ve just purchased a UKIP sticker to slap on it,will make a lovely photo for twitter

    MrNedward says:

    The arrogance is sickening. Why would the current supporters of UKIP, the vast majority of which have never voted tory, ever agree to a pre-election deal with the tories? Such a deal would kill UKIP and hand loads of votes back to labour or none-of-the-above.

    It is NOT going to happen. The non-tory UKIPPERS would hate it, and the former tory UKIPPERS would hate it even more. The last thing the former tory UKIPPERS want is anything that will help Cameron. They consider him to be lower than a cheating lover, a betrayer of their own conservative values and beliefs and some one who has betrayed them, their former party and the entire country.

    Such a pre-election deal, will not happen.

    Coalition after the election will not happen. UKIP will be allowed to work with whichever party is in power on a bill-by-bill basis, but not in a coalition.

    No discussions are even to take place with the Conners unless Bumsex Dave has already left No.10, and is guaranteed not to take part, or be a member of any future Government in any capacity whatsoever.

    A lot of commentators on ConHome are UKIP, so it may be they want a pact, or they are just stirring.

    Casual Observer 2 says:

    The Referendum must take place before or on General Election day as an absolute up front commitment by the Tories. No possibility of any fucking about afterwards by the LiebourDums must be allowed.

      Stop ranting says:

      Cameron would get kicked out of office by his own Party if he reneged on a referendum pledge (assuming the Conservatives have a working majority).
      The Conservatives are very Eurosceptic (unlike New Labour) and Cameron would be ousted.

    What prats. says:

    UKIP are full of Tory rejects (rejected for good reason) and nutters who wouldn’t get a foothold anywhere else. They are becoming the acceptable face of National Socialism. B&P idiots are already infiltrating them. Farage has turned them into a ranting anti-immigration party and will reep what he is presently sowing.

    Given how UKIP are giving Labour fits, why would the Conservatives risk a pact with them and sending those voters back to Labour?

      Wake up at the back there! That was the SWP/ Tory/Labour/Gay rights for Badgers political line three years ago. UKIP are now “people with real concerns that must be addressed”

    Don’t think the idea will work myself. Too much bad blood, especially since the Tories at CCHQ have been conducting themselves like a horde of demented chimpanzees, all flinging their excrement at UKIP in the hope that something, anything, will stick.

    A pact is a talking point, but only with real Tories and definitely not with the T.I.N.O mob currently parked in government and, only on the condition of an immediate (IMMEDIATE) in/out referendum.

    Otherwise no harm in kicking it around…

    I view such straw polls as deceptive, if not for anything else than the UKIP chameleons, who blithely masquerade as supporters of other parties (especially Cons) for such polls.
