IN CLACTON, perhaps a 10,000 MAJORITY for UKIP!

The blog post at the Guardian UK (Andrew Sparrow) is suggesting that the UKIP majority (actually a pluralty in most cases but UKIP should go over 50% here!) might exceed 10,000 votes!

Assuming the figures we are getting from Labour sources for Clacton are correct -and it is only an assumption; they have not been backed up by other parties – Ukip is heading for a majority of around 12,000.

You would expect the rough totals to be:

Ukip – 20,900

Conservatives – 8,800

Labour – 4,200

I’ve taken the 25% figure for the Tories, and the 59% figure for Ukip, to be conservative, and rounded the figures up or down to the nearest 100.

Could be exciting news!

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