UKIP WINS huge VICTORY in NORFOLK!

In special elections in Norfolk, (not that one) UKIP appears to have swamped the combined opposition:

The UK Independence Party consolidated its position in its Suffolk stronghold with resounding victories in by-elections for a town and district council.

UKIP candidates Tony Brown and Paul Firman won more votes than the other candidates combined in winning election to Haverhill East ward of St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Haverhill Town Council, in elections that were held simultaneously on Thursday.

And it was not even close!

For election to the borough council, Mr Brown got 529 votes, Labour’s Patrick Hanlon got 240 votes, Tory David Roach got 157 votes and Liberal Democrat Ken Rolph got 54 votes.

In the town council election, Mr Firman got 630 votes, Labour’s Elizabeth Smith got 229 votes and Lib Dem Ken Rolph got 107 votes.

The article seems to suggest some of the surge was local issues but others feel national questions may have played a role, too.

Let the blogger from the Original Colony suggest:  Maybe people who cared to vote in a special by-election were angry to see their nation continue to lose sovereignty and importance to European institutions.

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