+++ UKIP's Farage : "I'll Stand Against Bercow" +++

In what was one of the safest Tory seats in the country UKIP plan to mount a challenge. Speaking about Bercow, the controversial Labour-backed Speaker, Nigel Farage told the Telegraph

nigel farage“He is not a Conservative and yet he is sitting in one of the safest Conservative seats in the country. It means the people of Buckingham cannot vote for a Conservative even if they want to. This is a part of England where we did very well in the European elections and local elections. We are very well organised and strong and I intend to fight this very hard to become the MP.”

Party Candidate Votes % ±%
Conservative John Bercow 27,748 57.4 +3.7
Labour David Greene 9,619 19.9 −4.3
Liberal Democrat Luke Croydon 9,508 19.7 −0.3
UKIP David Williams 1,432 3.0 +0.9

This could be fun…

UPDATE : ConservativeHome’s Tim Montgomerie says what a lot of Tories will be thinking “I’d be tempted to vote UKIP if I lived in Buckingham”.  Dizzy thinks he “… would happily campaign/vote for Farage over Bercow.”

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
