In more news of the “UKIP rising” variety, a local official in Chester (We have a fine community named Chester in Virginia and another one named Chesterfield!) switched from the Conservative to the UKIP party and will run in a local election.

He said in his blog entry: “I’m not joining UKIP just because I’m a disillusioned Tory. I’m joining UKIP because their policies are so much more in tune with my own.”

We’ll see what happens in the May local elections.  Might be a surprise…

In more news showing why there is only one alternative for libertarians and true conservatives who care about sovereignty and liberty.  Lord Tebbit reported an unguarded remark from LibDem leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg to PM Cameron:

Just such a remark was that made by Clegg to Cameron as they walked away from sharing the platform at a public meeting in Nottingham to promote the Government’s new enterprise zones. The Prime Minister had told the meeting that although he intended that there would be television debates ahead of the next election, that between the two of them would be “better natured” than at the last election. Forgetting that his radio microphone was still live, Clegg observed to the Prime Minister: “If we keep doing this, we won’t find anything to bloody disagree on in the bloody TV debates.”

It is a telling remark and attitude that Lord Tebbit says will benefit UKIP – the renouncing of conservative values by the Coalition will not help them out.  Lord Tebbit’s right.  UKIP’s the best choice.  Maybe the only choice.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
