Senior Buckingham Tory Comes Out for Farage

Grassroots Conservative activists in Buckingham are mostly either staying at home, voting for Farage or in some cases campaigning for him. Sir Nicholas Bonsor, a Deputy Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire and a former Conservative MP, will be one of those canvassing for UKIP’s Nigel Farage.  UKIP say it is the first crack to open publicly in the Buckingham Constituency Association.

Disenfranchised Tories in the constituency are quietly putting their weight behind UKIP – Sir Nicholas is a patron of the Buckingham Conservative Association and a former foreign office minister.  Bercow’s disloyalty and the behaviour of his wife infuriates local party members. Bonsor is a big Chihuahua

UPDATE : Punters have marked up Farage’s chances of taking the seat from 25% to 35% this morning.  Farage raised £3,000 over the weekend from online donations.
