WATCH:  Farage Concedes – ‘Tories Will Win by 3,000 Votes’

“The Conservatives will hold this seat but what UKIP will do is score their best ever percentage score in a by-election. It’s going to be over 30%. [The Tory majority] will be two or three thousand. It will be very difficult to think we could have done much better. It’s been a very short by-election, we couldn’t really mobilise anybody until after the European elections. The Conservatives have probably put more into this than any by-election they’ve ever fought in their history. All round, I can assure you that the People’s Army will be very happy with this result tonight.”

If Farage is right and UKIP polled over 30% that will be very uncomfortable for the Tories…

    Whatever the result, if the % swing is applied to other constituencies, there are going to be a lot of MP’s getting their brown trousers out ready for next year.

      FFS they went from 3% to 26% in a real by election, destoyed the LimpDems, pushed Liebour into 3rd and took 9% from the castIron Brigade

      It was a major kick up the backside for all MPs with a majority under 10%, they will now be shitting themselves waiting to see if UKIP are going to contest their seat.

      Wait and watch as they squirm so they can keep their snouts in the trough

Following the revelations about Brooks Newmark’s paisley pyjamas, Hugo Rifkind wonders in this week’s Speccie what other politicians wear in bed:

“Chuka Umunna will sleep in Calvin Klein briefs, all the better to catch a glimpse of himself in the mirror on his ceiling.”

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
