Fraser Nelson at the Telegraph writes this about UKIP leader Nigel Farage (thanks to ConservativeHome for the tip!):

Farage is extending his message beyond Brussels-bashing. Those expenses-fiddlers in Westminster don’t understand you, he says, not as Maggie once did. Or even Tony Blair. They won’t meet you, or listen to you. And if you’ve had enough, then vote Ukip: we’re on your side. It’s a message intended to be as effective in the town hall as it was in Eastleigh – the formula for Ukip’s transformation. In three weeks’ time, we’ll see if it works.

And it very well, might, based on the enthusiastic turnout in Worcester:

Worcester Guildhall felt like the Tory party conference in the days when grassroots members actually turned up. There were young couples, families and a chap in his thirties who said he’d come because it would be “better than watching EastEnders”. Something about Ukip had pricked his interest, and he decided to attend a political meeting – an event that doesn’t happen much in Britain. I met two pearl-draped women who said they were Tory converts. Their complaint with David Cameron was “lack of progress” – any kind of progress.

No one seemed even to vaguely conform to the Prime Minister’s now infamous description of Ukip supporters as “fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists”.

The Guildhall was filled to capacity, reports Nelson.

There’s more:  In Huntingdonshire, Farage was greeted with questions and in Ramsay, home of the firts UKIP-controlled council, numerous signs.  And in Holt, Norwich, Farage spoke to a “packed house“!

Farage and UKIP are fighting our future fights against world government and superempires.  Let’s show him some love at his MEP website:  Here it is
