UKIP LEADER and MEDIA MOGUL meet privately; Council by election to UKIP from TORIES!

Like a football team with the momentum of big plays and quick scores, UKIP is advancing down the political field from good news to good news with a few victories along the way.

Breitbart and at least one other source reports that there was a personal meeting in New York City between media giant Rupert Murdoch and UKIP leader Nigel Farage:

Rupert Murdoch is known to still be heavily involved in the running of his multibillion dollar news empire, evidenced by the fact that he was aware of Mr Farage’s taping of a pre-record on the ground floor in the middle of the day.

The news of the meeting will likely send shock waves through Westminster’s political and media elite, as Mr Murdoch usually saves such encounters for politicians that he plans to back ahead of a General Election.

I guess we’ll find out. Murdoch’s media empire could help even out the most anti-UKIP bias in the British media.

There are also rumo(u)rs of other possible defections to UKIP and even a by-election win last Thursday from the Tories in a local government position in Shepway District – Folkestone Harvey Central:

Shepway District – Folkestone Harvey Central:

UKIP 287, C 224, Lib Dem 198, Lab 196, Green 96, Trade Unionists and Socialists Against Cuts 29. (May 2011 – Two seats C 539, 481, Lab 388, 328, Lib Dem 233, Ind 220).

UKIP gain from C. Swing 9.2% C to Lib Dem.

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