Voters in Rochester and Strood ought to watch out for low-flying kitchen sinks  BUT it seems the plumbing tactic is not working!  This poll in the Daily Mail (watch out for the pretty girls!) shows Tory defector to UKIP Mark Reckless should cruise to victory in the November vote:

The ComRes survey suggests former Tory MP Mark Reckless is on course to win next month’s by-election in Kent, just weeks after defecting to Ukip.

The survey of 1,500 voters puts Ukip on 43 per cent, well ahead of the Conservatives on 30 per cent.


Labour, which came second in the seat in 2010, is trailing on 21 per cent, with the Liberal Democrats and Greens both languishing on 3 per cent.

The poll suggests Ukip is consolidating its grip on the seat, despite a massive push by the Tories. The last opinion poll in the constituency, on October 5, put the Conservatives nine points behind.

The development is a serious setback to David Cameron, who has pledged to ‘throw the kitchen sink’ at the attempt to hold the seat, in a bid to halt the Ukip surge.

But I am worried.  Might Labour voters, sensing a chance to vote strategically, put the Conservative over the top?  Vigilance is critical in this election and there is plenty of time left.  But it is good to see this poll in.  Is it November 20 yet?

    Sandy, before you go downtown and ask the Republican’s to make you a judge, don’t forget to take that Sarvis bumper sticker off your soul, and off your car from last November! Might not look good! They just might not understand??

    Also, have you talked to Kilgore lately, got anything to trade?

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