UKIP on Course for Two MPs According to Ashcroft Poll

Lord Ashcroft’s latest constituency polling has UKIP in first place in two Tory held seats where Labour came second in 2010. Thurrock Tory MP Jackie Doyle-Price, who has a majority of just 92 in Thurrock, drops to third on 28%. In first place is UKIP’s Tim Aker, on 36%, well ahead of the Labour candidate, Ed Miliband’s carpet-bagging former SpAd Polly Billington, who is on 30%. Meanwhile in Thanet South, where Farage is expected to run, UKIP are first on 33%, with the Tories and Labour level pegging on 29%. The LibDems are almost wiped out in both constituencies, on 2% and 4% respectively. If Ashcroft is on the money, UKIP will have at least two MPs in 2015. They are not just hurting the Tories, but Labour too…

Fun-Loving Farage Stars in Extramarital Dating Site Advert

Sponsored

Extramarital dating site Victoria Milan, have somewhat provocatively launched a new billboard campaign outside UKIP’s Mayfair HQ poking fun at Nigel Farage’s alleged penchant for the ladies. The website offers a discreet social network for men and women seeking a secret affair rather than an in depth discussion of European affairs. Allegedly.

PICTURE SPECIAL: Farage’s Top Tory Totty

Gordon Brown declared Nigel Farage to represent the best of British during his Press Gallery lunch this afternoon, telling hacks: “Britain wouldn’t be Britain without Farage with a pint in one hand and a mystery lady in the other”. Well now Guido can solve the mystery…

The blonde with her arm draped around the fun-loving UKIP leader in the (above right) photo is Tess Weeks, privately educated (Haberdashers’ Monmouth) the UCL graduate speaks Russian and Italian, she works as a recruitment consultant with Palm Mason in Canary Wharf. She attended the boozy conference in Malta last week in the course of her work. Guido cannot think why a well-lubricated Nige decided to make friends:

No need for Kirsten, the missus, to worry, there was no 3 a.m. walk back to a hotel room this time however. Tess has a boyfriend and says she is a proud supporter of the Conservative Party…

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…

Cabinet Office Covers Up Clegg’s Secret Farage Briefings

Readers will remember back in March when Guido broke the story that Nick Clegg had been accused of using civil service resources to prepare for his debates with Nigel Farage. At the time sources familiar with the situation reported that Clegg’s taxpayer funded preparation had strayed into party political territory. This would be a clear breach of the Ministerial Code of Conduct, which says any briefings received by ministers must be non-partisan. In the debates Clegg appeared as Leader of the Liberal Democrats…

In search for the truth, Guido requested a copy of Clegg’s preparation for the debates from the Cabinet Office under the Freedom of Information Act. Today, after some delay, the Cabinet Office have confirmed that they do possess the briefings Clegg received, but are refusing to release them despite admitting there is a public interest in doing so:

“There is a general public interest in disclosure of information and I recognise that openness in government may increase public trust in and engagement with the Government. However, these public interests have to be weighed against a stronger public interest of the workings of a private office.”

Clegg has the opportunity to clear his name and prove he did not use civil service resources on party political activity. If he is innocent, there is no loss to him or the Cabinet Office by releasing non-partisan briefing papers. For some reason however, they are not doing so. Those more cynical than Guido might suggest they have something to hide…

Five Star Farage Meets Italian Rebel Commander

The commander of the People’s Army has travelled to Europe to recruit a new general for his Rebel Alliance. Nigel Farage has met with Italian anti-establishment politician Beppe Grillo, leader of the Five Star Movement which came second in the polls in Italy this week. Following their summit in Brussels, Commander Farage has addressed the nation: “If this works out it would be magnificent to see a swelling in the ranks of the Peoples’ Army.” Grillo reckons: “we are Rebels with a Cause, and we shall whistle as we march.” 

The potential UKIP-Five Star alliance in the European Parliament was first reported by Guido in the Sun on Sunday in January. At the time Nige said: “We can have a bit of fun, we can be a bit naughty. The Five Star Movement believe in asking the people what they think. All I can say is, ‘Hooray!’” One to watch out for…

EXC: Farage Calls for Electoral Commission to Be Abolished

Speaking exclusively to Guido in the media scrum after his press conference, Nigel Farage has called for the Electoral Commission to be abolished for allowing the misleadingly named An Independence From Europe party onto the ballot papers. Farage accepted that the spoiler party cost UKIP an even greater win, the party is furious that Gawain Towler was denied a seat in the South West because of the vote being split by the other party’s “UK Independence Now” slogan. The UKIP leader tells Guido:

“The Electoral Commission was set up if you remember to stop things like the Literal Democrats from ever happening again. In their 13 years of existence, their only achievement that I can see is to have presided over a massive growth in postal voting fraud. They’ve hounded UKIP almost to the point of bankruptcy. We only survived 4-3 at the Supreme Court from going bankrupt. They now allow a party that put UK Independence Now on the ballot paper, that cost us a seat in the South West. Frankly they are not fit for purpose. I’d close the whole thing down and start again.”

Please credit quote to Guido Fawkes.

The Electoral Commission claimed the names of the two parties were sufficiently different. Which is laughable considering it impacted upon the final result…

And i’ve noticed that 100% of Guido Fawkes staff are men. Looks like Guido has a woman problem. Or is it an hypocrisy problem?
