Yes, it sounds like an American election (Virginia has a Isle of Wight County!) but it is the BBC’s report:  UKIP is a factor in Hampshire and Isle of Wight.

The most startling factor while looking at the candidates standing in Hampshire is finding the rise of the UK Independence Party (UKIP).

When the last election for the county council was held in 2009 the party fielded candidates in 42% of the seats – now it’s 92%.

The Eastleigh by-election – where they recorded their best-ever performance in a Westminster poll – did not only boost UKIP morale, it has improved their organisation and given them a hunger to progress further.

Can’t wait until May 2!  National Day of Prayer and the UK election!

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