I have written early on about the UKIP – the UK Independence Party.  It’s (notwithstanding my admiration for many in the Tory Party) my favorite UK political party.  They are non-racist and pro-sovereignty and very conservative.

Several days ago, I write these words in my last blog:

Perhaps, the solution lies in an obscure riding named Oldham East and Saddleworth.  The MP there was kicked out for false advertising during the last General Election (If we had that in the USA, the election night question would be who organizes Congress:  The Libertarians or the Constitution Party.  Certainly the Dems would be ineligible for election and many Republicans might be in trouble too!) and thus a new election is required!

I suggest that the UKIP run their best candidate – maybe Nigel Farage – and make the EU and Lisbon the issue.  “If elected I will tie up the Commons until there is a referendum on Lisbon!”  (No, I cannot run.  Sorry!)  It’s time for a Tea Party in the UK.

Good ideas abound!  Check this out from the Telegraph:

Farage also went on Sky News to claim that UKIP could become the British Tea Party, appealing to those who feel “overtaxed, over-governed, not being listened to”.


On this and many other issues, such as immigration, tax and political reform, UKIP is in tune with a large minority or clear majority of public opinion.

The UKIP is a legitimate outlet for protest but more than just that, it can govern and has a clear position.  GET OUT OF THE EU.  that is a good fight.  Keep fighting, UKIP and Euroskeptic Tories!  Use that by-election to start some what we here call a prairie fire.

  1. We will do what we can. It would be wrong to parachute Farage in, he is from a different place and would be resented (rightly) up in Lancashire. We have a good local candidate, and will work our socks off. It is a long haul

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