Farage is Prime Time Greek Hero

Greece has taken over the EU presidency and Nigel Farage welcomed it in style. His speech attacking the Greek political classes got shown on prime time news in Greece. With hundreds of thousands of views the YouTube of his speech telling Greece’s Prime Minister Antonis Samaras that his country is now under foreign control “run by Big Business, Big Banks and Big Bureaucrats” has gone viral in Greece…

Manchester By-Election: The Numbers

Sadly Labour MP Paul Goggins has died. The former Home Office Minister’s held the safe-Labour Manchester seat of Wythenshawe and Sale East with a majority of 7,575:

2010 Result:
Conservative: 10412 (25.6%)
Labour: 17987 (44.1%)
Lib Dem: 9107 (22.3%)
BNP: 1572 (3.9%)
UKIP: 1405 (3.4%)
MAJORITY: 7575 (18.6%)

UKIP will be wanting that second place…

O’Flynn Makes it Official with UKIP

Patrick O’Flynn of the Express will spin, officially, for UKIP as their new Director of Communications. O’Flynn is already a UKIP candidate for the EU elections, though he’s taking on one of the hardest jobs in Westminster: dealing with ‘fruitcakes, loonies and closet racist’ stories. No news on who will take over as the Express Chief Political Commentator…

UKIP Polling Up to 30% in Key Swing Seats
Donor Buys Page Ad in Telegraph to Rebut Ashcroft

Four more constituency polls from Survation out this morning, bankrolled by UKIP’s millionaire bookie donor Alan Bown. UKIP are up to 28% in Folkestone and Hythe, 30% in Great Yarmouth and 27% in Bognor Regis & Littlehampton. In Crewe and Nantwich they are only on 11%, but the Tories fall behind Labour into second. Indeed the Tories are down by an average of 14 points on their 2010 results across the four seats. You can use the drop down box on the interactive graph above to see the results in full.

Bown has taken out a full page ad in today’s Telegraph to answer Lord Ashcroft’s claim that voting UKIP puts Miliband into Number 10. UKIP have two lines on this. First, that today’s polls show the net gain to the Tories if UKIP were not to field a candidate would be only 2% nationally. Only 26% of voters polled said they would vote Tory if UKIP did not run so, put simply, not enough are not going to ‘come home’ in 2015 as the Tories hope. Second, that UKIP voters do not really care if Miliband becomes PM. 53% said they would rather vote UKIP than Tory even if that meant Ed won, just 33% said they would vote Tory instead of UKIP to stop him. That is the number that will cost the Tories in 2015…

Woolwich Terror Suspect “Intrigued By This Guy Nigel Farage”

Woolwich terror suspect Michael Adebolajo’s warped police interview statements are being shown in court. He says he is “intrigued by this guy called Nigel Farage”, and that if Farage were in charge “we can negotiate on anything”. Someone should show him Farage’s statement in the aftermath of the attack:

“We are all left horrified by this appalling attack on the peaceful streets of London, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the young man who was killed and those who were affected. I hope and believe that this is an isolated incident and appeal for calm amongst all our communities.”

Little doubt about how that “negotiation” would go.

UPDATE: A UKIP source responds saying this is “a delusional statement from a sickening individual”.

GRAPHS: Labour 20 Points Clear in Key Marginals

Two more Survation polls on key marginals out this morning. If the trends in the three constituencies polled so far turn out to be representative, it is pretty clear what the consequences are for the Tories. In Great Grimsby Labour are 20 points clear, as UKIP rise to second place on 22%:

In Dudley North Labour have another 20 point lead, with the Tories down 12% on 2010 and the LibDems on 2%, almost competely wiped out. UKIP are up on 23%.

More worryingly for the Tories, 70 percent of UKIP voters say they did not vote Tory in 2010. So they are aren’t exactly going to come home. The UKIP effect on 2015 is becoming ever clearer…

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
