I should thank Nigel Farage and Douglas Carswell for making me into a better blogger!  As I listen to the Yorktown episode of Liberty’s Kids, (Sorry to my British readers!) I am inspired to keep up the UKIP fight in the colonies!

The Tines of London (a pay site – 20 pounds for 13 weeks!) is reporting that both the present and the former treasurer of the Conservative association in Clacton have defected to UKIP!  Here’s a quote from ConservativeHome daily email.

“A series of local Conservatives have joined the former Tory Douglas Carswell in his defection to Ukip. … Mike Wadham, treasurer of his old association, Clacton Conservatives, is among those to have jumped ship, citing loyalty to the former MP as his reason. He told his new colleagues that ‘if Douglas had joined the Teddy Bear Party, I would have gone with him’. His predecessor as treasurer, Ashley Mooney, has also pledged to switch to Ukip and campaign for Mr Carswell.”

And the by-election that may shake the world (What did they say about Lexington and Concord:  The Shot Heard ‘Round the World?) is set in Clacton for Thursday October 9!  I can’t wait!  First September 18:  Scotland votes for independence and October 9:  Clacton shakes up the entire EU.  October 9 is also PM David Cameron’s birthday.

David Cameron faces an unhappy 48th birthday. The Clacton byelection, in which Ukip are poised to win their first elected MP, will take place on October 9th, it was announced this morning.

(I am not pleased to know that the Prime Minister is SEVEN years younger than I am!  I might have to lay down for a few minutes until the mid-life crisis goes away!)

Now that I’m awake:  Is it October 9th yet?

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