Vote UKIP, Get Coalition (of Lefties)

UKIP’s 15 councillors in Norfolk have gone into coalition with Labour and the Liberal Democrats in order to shaft the 40 strong Conservative block remaining after the recent upset. While there may be no love lost on the ground after UKIP cost the Tories overall control of the council, in the long run this could work well for Tories nationally.

The narrative about letting the left in by splitting the right-wing vote has never looked stronger.

A short-sighted move here.
