      The Tories have a habit of losing seats with much bigger majorities in mid-term by-elections so this must be a boost. Ukip just don’t have the votes to win in most of the seats they fight and this doesn’t bode well for them at the GE. Not even close here.

      Terrible result for Labour and the Lib Dems.

          It’s not just a matter of protest, more importantly it is a matter of momentum. If UKIP could continue with the current momentum it would not simply gets seats in 2015, it would undoubtedly form the government! It doesn’t have the infrastructure to continue the current acceleration but it does have the momentum to ensure at least fifty seats next year. (I’m not very good at politics but I am very good with moving numbers).

        Not that good for the Tory boys either – I sniggered on reading Grant Shapps in one of the papers claiming that Ukip had suffered badly – it was the end of Ukip & Tory boys had scored a fantastic success. Winning with your lead down by over 50% – big success? Ukip vote share up from 4% to 25% – failure? I think young Master Shapps must have flunked his maths badly in his school days. And I have to say that the winning Tory seemed a nice man but he’s a ‘mini me’ Camoron – rich & out of touch with the ordinary voters. Dave Nice but Dim (no, not even ‘Nice’) really hasn’t a clue.

            The Tories can’t win in 2015 as
            1. No boundary changes
            2. Corruption within the Postal voting system not resolved
            3. UKIP trending at ~ 15% in the polls; they cost the Tories 20 seats in 2010 with 3% of the vote.
            4. Pilgrims still in position actively campaigning against the Government of the day using taxpayers money
            5. Union education fund is still in place
            6. Cameron’s appalling judgement in appointing Andy Coulson
            7. No TU reform allowing Crow and his mob hold us to ransom
            8. Tory constituency parties are disintegrating in protest at Cameron’s liberal policies
            9. The Tories will lose 7/8 seats along the route of HS2 to single issue candidates
            10. The Tories will lose one seat in Portsmouth due to shipbuilding being concentrated in Scotland
            11. No control of mass immigration
            12. Public spending still out of control and the national debt rising on a daily basis
            13. Human Rights Act still in place
            14. No referendum on Europe
            15. State control of the press introduced
            16. Cameron wanted to take us to war in Syria
            17. Gay Marriage
            18. The BBC is left wing and will act as Labour’s main election campaigner in 2015
            19. QE is destroying any savings people may have
            20. Cameron’s continued, unsubstantiated, support for Climate Change and general green issues.
            21. No promised Bonfire of the Quangos or reduction in Red Tape for businesses. Even worse he has left all the labour placemen who head these quangos in place.
            22. Cameron’s pathetic support for Yeo and Miller. More evidence of his lack of judgement.
            23. He gave Anna Soubry a job
            24. Cameron/Osbourne did not reverse the Brown/Balls pension reforms as promised and thus continued the retirement misery for many
            25. Introduced £9k p.a. tuition fees resulting in students leaving university with debts most will never be able to afford to pay back
            26. Is planning to introduce the child abuse crime of mental anguish when our authorities are incapable of protecting vulnerable children from physical abuse.
            27. Has made no attempt to defend Christianity against an onslaught from the liberal left.

      A remarkable achievement by UKIP in a Tory safe seat.

      Considering that all three main parties were targeting UKIP and not each other, the MSM of all political persuasions were attacking UKIP, the State broadcaster also joined the attack on UKIP and of course the EU joined in too.

      To take on this barrage of artillery fire and get the result they did, then what they have done is incredible.

    What’s depressing is the press will be focussing on the “has the UKIP peaked/Conservative in campaign mode” stories and missing the real meat here. As said elsewhere if Labour wants to form the next gov’t it needs to be making gains not becoming “the party formerly known as the Liberal Democrats”. As for the LibDems, they are well on the way from making the impressive move from going from a party of gov’t to extinction in one General Election. At this point “coupons” should not be off the table at Great GeorgeSt.

      Absolutely.

      According to the left-wing media, taking a tiny party with hardly any resources from 4% to 26% and second place in Westminster election is some kind of failure!

      Meanwhile, aside from the the opposite happening to the Lib Dems- going from contenders at 20% to fag enders at 3% and being comprehensively destroyed as an electoral force, the beloved Labour party has self-evidently failed.

      Labour held Newark on 45% in 1997, and since then they’ve declined to 38%, then 34%, then 22%, and finally, last night dropped another 5% to 17%!… this is supposedly the government in waiting, the natural destination for voters looking to show their displeasure with the government.

      The headline should be something along the lines of – Labour pushed into 3rd by minor party, and lose 20% of their support in a by-election less than a year before the next general election.

      Labour is the party of failure. UKIP is the party of the working classes.

      We’re in hung parliament territory again, but the question remains – how can the Lib Dems have any legitimacy to be candidates for sharing power again when they’ve been so comprehensively rejected by the electorate for the last 4 years, as well as at the next election?!

      If neither Labour nor Tories can form a legitimate coalition, whither next?
      Another election? A Labour-Tory coalition and change in the voting system?
      Proportional Representation? Compulsory voting?

      Surprisingly when he managed to bring the conversation back to how badly the Labour Party had done (first time for ages that the Conservatives had won a by-election while in power, first time for ages that the governments opposition had not won a by-election from any party.) the interview was rapidly brought to end with the comment from the clearly unbiased BBC employee that “You should be more worried about UKIP,”

      Not really unexpected but still disgraceful. What the hell as the Gove/May spat got to do with the election in Newark? If it was their MP maybe but in the bigger picture just an attempt by a clearly biased media to divert attention away from another cock up for Beaker.

      Labour’s media friends have been covering up their electoral failings since they have been in opposition. Historically, Labour’s perfornance has been on a par with Foot and Kinnock in the 80’s. Hardly a precursur to a GE victory.

      Dropping 5% in a high profile by-election is terrible for the main opposition party.

In fact, if other strands of Dave’s (and Labour’s) policies continue, bumsex will be illegal in this country circa 2050 and punishable by stoning. Which would you rather – repeal of gay marriage or control of our borders?

    Meaningless result, in a GE UKIP are toast.

    They have minimal ground game and nothing resembling nationwide infrastructure, they’ll be utterly out campaigned but may do a pretty good job of ensuring the Tories aren’t the largest single party, leading the way for a Labour Lib Dem coalition and all the EU lovefest that will accompany it.

    At least Nigel’s had his jollies though, he’s minted and likely will have a happy time in the Lords in his dotage, having moved from one trough to another.

    Not a win, but a moral victory.

    Reality check:- The Cons lost 10% of their support despite the mobilisation of the entire party force.

    Some figures, for fun.

    They’ll need 350 seats.

    They have, perhaps 50 safe ones, so they would need to do all they did in Newark 300 times over to get a Majority.

    That means in the last month of the 2015 campaign Cameron would have to make 1200 visits to these constituencies.

    The MPs would have to visit twice these 300 seats, so 300 x 300 x 2 = 180,000 occasions when MPs criss-crossed the Country in that last month too.

    Then feet on the ground, THAT STAY… 1000 x 300 = 300,000 youngish supporters, that’s a lot of curry and sex.

    That might get them 300 seats… so we can kill that as a possibility because they couldn’t hold that level even in their wildest dreams.

    But UKIP increased their support by 22% and came second, with a short run-up with serious intent with a vehicle that can not be described as a well oiled machine.

    That is not only repeatable but can be improved upon.

    The really dangerous and disruptive Earthquakes occur deep down, this Political Earthquake hasn’t reached the surface, the Cons blew some of the steam off but the main thrust is immutable.

    The Cons with intelligence (the few) will be cacking themselves.

      Additionally, the cost of the respective campaigns has to be accounted.

      The Cons must have expended a fortune, just accounting for the 1000 ‘young bucks’ on curry, booze and condoms/morning after pills alone the costs must have been staggering.

      Any campaign on this scale in perhaps 100 seats would bankrupt them.

      The reality is that this was a ‘show’ election for both main parties in the running, both threw all they could but one was hugely out-gunned and still the Cons walked away with a reduced majority.

      Saying that, I doubt the Cons would have lost if they had run a normal BE campaign, but that is not as good news as it seems precisely because of the ‘show’ type election it was.

      It’s full spin ahead this morning across all media with the meme that this was somehow a bad result for UKIP. What is remarkable is the fact that in the last days of the campaign there was a real, credible possibility being mooted that UKIP could actually win the seat. This is now being used to play down the fact that they made a huge impact on the Conservative majority in one of the safest of safe seats.

    I believe that there is some ‘concern’ about the cost of the Cons campaign, rumour is they may have over-spent. The limit appears to be around £47,000 in Newark and estimates are hard to come by, but £100,000 appears to have been spent.

    Today I have written to the electoral commission to ask for this to be checked and will keep O-O informed as to progress.

    My figures are all my ‘take’ but are based on this:-

    Short campaign
    £7,150 + 5p/7p per elector in a
    borough/county constituency.

    From the EC.

    Short campaign, 80,000 registered 5p per voter plus the £7k

    The £100,000k is a guestimate based on the offices, numbers and visits, because they were ‘whipped’ all the con MPs will have to submit costs in full so it will take a long time to get all of it together.

    I’m just making mischief really, but that’s me all over, a member of the awkward squad, founding member actually!
