Thin Purple Line: Labour UKIP Attack Tempts Fate

Labour are going big on their ‘UKIP are more Tory than the Tories’ line this morning following the defection of Tory donor Arron Banks to Nigel Farage’s party. Attack dog Michael Dugher tells the Guardian:

“David Cameron is haemorrhaging support and his authority is ebbing away. He can’t control his party, who clearly have no confidence in his leadership. And once again we see that Ukip are reliant on Tory money as well as Tory policy and Tory politicians, putting paid to the idea that they stand up for working people.”

Continuing with the same rhetoric they used to fight the tanks on their lawn up in Doncaster last week:

The problem with this line is that for increasing numbers of voters in Labour strongholds up north, UKIP is becoming more Labour than Labour. Traditional Labour voters are already switching over, and Dugher and co and going to be left red-faced when inevitably a big name party figure jumps ship and completely discredits this attack. First Labour ignored UKIP, then they laughed at them, but what happens if one of their MPs was to defect?

Alan Sugar on Jeremy Corbyn:

“It’s clear you alluded to students refunds to get votes from young impressionable people. You are a cheat and should resign.”
