UK BY-ELECTIONS last THURSDAY – UKIP does WELL but NO WINS!

This report at ConservativeHome about local by-elections from last Thursday was encouraging for UKIP:

In Billericay East Ward, the Tories lost 10.5% to UKIP, although the Conservative councillor was elected.

In Newtown Ward, UKIP gained 22.7% but still ran behind Labour and the Tory hopeful.

In Southway Ward, and in Primrose Ward, UKIP gained against Labour, and in Primrose the swing was nearly 30%!  Alas no win in either case.

Finally, a strange new party called Health Concern won a seat from UKIP in Stourport-on-Severn Division.

I would suggest that UKIP is here to stay but needs to build stronger coalitions to win those seats.

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