This article in the UK Guardian shows that there is a genuine surge of interest in Britain’s sovereignty and liberty party: UKIP.
Labour has 35% and the Tories only six points back at 29% but the story for me is the 17% tally for UKIP. More than double the LibDems! Just in time for local elections:
With less than two weeks to go before the 2 May local elections, Ukip, which is fielding a record number of council candidates, has maintained its surge and is up 1% on 17%, while the Lib Dems remain on 8%.
There also is a MP by-election in a heavily Labour district being vacated by Labour Leader Ed Miliband’s brother David on May 2 and UKIP wants to at least come in second and beat the Tories! Here is a short article about the UKIP candidate. Here’s another:
And it seems the party is in confident mode about how it will perform in the upcoming by-election in South Shields, which Mr Miliband has represented and has been seen as a traditional Labour heartland.
A Ukip source told MSN News that the party hopes to come second, although Mr Farage will not stand.
Perhaps people all through Europe are rising to realize the Tweedledee and Tweedledum parties are not representing their nations nor their people. UKIP and the Alternative for Germany’s fight are our fight. Here is Nigel Farage’s election speech.
