Poll: UKIP-Tory Tactical Voting in Doncaster Would Unseat Ed
+Labour Just 3% Behind Clegg in Sheffield
+Farage Trails Tories By 5% in South Thanet

“How many Tories in Doncaster will be tempted to lend UKIP their vote, just this once?” ponders Lord A.

Vote Tory, get Labour up in Donny…

UPDATE I: Clegg is not safe in Sheffield Hallam, while Farage is struggling in South Thanet:

UPDATE II: Miliband’s constituents trust Cameron and Osborne more with the economy than their own MP and Ed Balls:

UPDATE III: Unfortunately this turns out to be bollocks, see: Lord Ashcroft: I Screwed Up That Doncaster Poll, Sorry

Searing UKIP Attack Ad Hits Tories Hard on Immigration

Green Surge Potential

likely-to-win

Sadiq Khan has been tasked with running Labour’s new anti-Green attack unit, because Labour’s strategists increasingly fear that the Greens could become the UKIP of the left. The Greens are now regularly out-polling the LibDems and beat them in the Rochester and Strood by-election. The party itself is now predicting a “Green Spring” next year, this YouGov poll shows the potential for the Greens, their vote would soar if only voters thought they could win. YouGov asked “If candidates from the following parties were standing in your constituency and had a chance of winning, how likely would you be to vote for them?” In those circumstances the Greens would surge to 26% ahead of UKIP on 24%, the LibDems would rise to only 16%.

So how could that happen? Perhaps if the likes of Russell Brand and Owen Jones – who is openly despondent about Miliband – were to shift allegiances to the only party which is idealistically left-wing and polling well, it could happen. Millions of idealistic impressionable younger voters are entirely uninspired by Ed Miliband. Owen might just get that “UKIP of the left” he wants…

Secret UKIP Labour Meeting This Lunchtime

Imagine Guido’s surprise when strolling home from lunch through Westminster to spot Ed Miliband’s Director of Strategy Greg Beales emerging from a lunchtime meeting with Nigel Farage’s Head of Media Alexandra Phillips.

Beales tells Guido: “I’m not defecting.”

A UKIP source says “what meeting?”.

What was on the menu, eh?

Skinner: Vote UKIP and I’ll Be Dead in Six Months

“I’ve got a United Nations heart bypass… and it was done by a Syrian cardiologist, a Malaysian surgeon, a Dutch doctor, a Nigerian registrar, and these two people here [Reckless and Carswell] talk about sending them back from whence they came. If they did that to the hospitals in London I for one would be dead in six months.”

An old dinosaur accusing UKIP of being stuck in the past…

UKIP GAIN: Reckless Wins Rochester

Thursday, November 20, 2014

Good Morning, It’s By-Election Day!

The polls are open in Rochester and Strood. Mark Reckless is promising fireworks if he wins:

“During the campaign I have spoken with two Conservative MPs about the possibility of their moving over and I think they will want to see what the result is before making any decisions. One of them I had discussions by telephone and the other I met in a location not in the constituency.”

Polls close at 10pm. Declaration expected at 3:30am…
