UKIP catching Lib Dems in polls

Nigel Farage

"Brilliant news" says UKIP boss Farage, a former Eastleigh PPC.

The latest Angus Reid polls is showing UKIP catching up with the Lib Dems as only two percentage points now separate the rival parties in a poll which puts Labour on 41%, Conservatives on 32%, Lib Dems on 10% and UKIP on 8%.

This result follows the recent Barnsley bye-election where UKIP displaced the Lib Dems as the second party and last week, in a county council by-election in the former Tory heartland of Tunbridge Wells – UKIP collected 22% of the vote.

Earlier tonight, an elated Nigel Farage, the UKIP party leader – told Eastleigh News :

“This is brilliant news and I’m sure in many areas we will be polling much higher. At this rate we really can be the third party”‘

Outspoken MEP Farage stood in Eastleigh during the 1994 by- election when he beat Screaming Lord Sutch by almost 200 votes. Since then he has supported a number of local issues by signing petitions to keep investment in the Ford Transit Plant and to prevent cuts to the children’s ‘Sure Start’ centres in Hampshire.

Yes it's true. In 1994 both Nigel Farage and Screaming Lord Sutch stood in Eastleigh and were defeated by...David Chidgey.

    I quit the Tories in 1994 and joined UKIP. I’ve never looked back. Now I can sleep easy at night because I know I can vote according to my conscience. I would hate to feel obliged to vote “Conservative” (now THAT’S a misnomer if ever there was one) simply out of habit. That would be a BETRAYAL of my principles (which are fiercely patriotic). The (so-called) “Conservative” Party is committed to ever closer political union with Europe. This means continued open borders and increasing mass unemployment as cheap EU labour continues to flood in. That is NOT a racist statement. It is based on pure economics. The next step is to persuade people to have the guts to vote UKIP.

    That is NOT a racist statement.

    Why feel the need to mention it then?

    Just a question.

      Good point Andy! I always mention it because we live in “strange times”. I like to try and “decondition” brainwashed readers who have been “conditioned” over 50 years to keep silent on ANYTHING to do with foreigners.

      Get this: Under EU legislation our borders were thrown wide open to EVERY single Eastern European worker in 2004. Did we protest? Were there riots in the streets? No! We just let it happen. We let them flood in and take the jobs of our young people.

      We did nothing because we were “conditioned” by 50 years of “anti-discrimination” legislation NOT to mention anyone who is “different” (especially by virtue of their race). As a result, more than a million Eastern European workers offering cheap labour flooded in and we just sat back and let them take our jobs.

      Right now, cheap EU labour is destroying (decimating) our young labour base and people are STILL voting Tory or Labour. It makes me SICK to see how stupid the British people have been. It could ONLY happen in Britain. Only in Britain could leaders get away with selling off 80% of the manufacturing base for cheap foreign labour and get away with it. Oh boy! Words fail me. But I’m glad to see that you are not fooled by their lies and attempts to stifle free speech.

      Finally, before anyone out there suggests that I am a racist, I can easily prove I am not. This is an argument about economics, not race. Over to you Andy!
