MIGHT some LABOUR voters SHIFT to UKIP? I would think the FARAGE LABOURITE will be seen in this EU election!

The Labour Party says that UKIP is no friend of labo(u)r:

But now we have UKIP and Nigel Farage pretending that they are the real champions of Britain’s hardworking people.

This is from a politician who likes to boast that he is the only one “keeping the flame of Thatcherism alive”.

And the truth is that UKIP’s policies towards working people are more Thatcherite than Lady Thatcher herself.

I would call that an endorsement of UKIP!  But Labour also makes it clear:  NO in or out EU referendum.  They are clearly in the Tweedledee/Tweedledum camp:

“Ed Miliband won’t U-turn on his decision to rule out an EU referendum even if Labour are beaten by Ukip in next month’s Euro elections, The Sun has learned. … The Labour leader has said that if he becomes PM, he’ll only hold an in-out referendum if more powers are transferred from Westminster to Brussels.”

This is from the Sun (now a pay site) and also from ConservativeHome (I still get their emails every day and they are great!)

But it seems Labour leader Miliband might ought to fear UKIP after all – he acknowledges some Labour voters are turning to UKIP:

In a direct admonishment of Gapes, [Labour MP and former cabinet minister John] Denham said: “I don’t think that any ‘Southland’ Labour politician would have branded the Ukip posters as racist.

“Because I think that’s the sort of thing that is said by somebody whose aim is to mobilise anti-Ukip voters to come out and vote. It’s not the sort of thing that is said by a candidate who is actually trying to engage with the voters because they are the people we need to vote for us.”

Denham said the rise in support for Ukip was due to communities across the country feeling “under pressure” from economic changes and migration “so labelling them as racist is a bad way to start.”


Denham said he was confident Labour could win back any voters that had defected to Ukip, but cautioned: “part of me is pessimistic about Ukip because I think political parties, including my own, are not handling Ukip well.”

Are we seeing the rise of the Farage Labourite?  Like their counterpart in the USA the Reagan Democrat, they tended to be blue collar, some union voters especially in the Midwest who switched to Reagan over social issues, sovereignty and reckless spending.

Another Labour leader – a peer, Lord Glasman, warns that Labour voters are switching to UKIP (The Times is a pay site, too):

Lord Glasman, a policy guru who was ennobled by Mr Miliband, said that the rise of Ukip would hit Labour “in the heartlands”. He urged the party to adopt a series of measures to win back working-class support.

Go here for a free version of the Glasman commentary.  It’s scary for Labour:

Lord Glasman, a policy guru ennobled by Miliband, said the rise of Nigel Farage’s party would hit the Opposition “in the heartlands”.

In an interview with The Times, the peer said voters’ concerns about immigration and welfare needed to be addressed to stop them abandoning Labour permanently.


“The Labour middle class vote held up (in 2010). It was the working class vote that died. These are often people who are earning, who have jobs, but they don’t see Labour as representing their interests.”

Labour represents the EU interests and the EU interests are not the interests of UK residents or voters.  Including those who previously voted for Labour.  The EU means unlimited immigration, guaranteed benefits, prisoners voting in elections, terrorists protected and radical Green doctrine by force of law.  I would argue this is not what many Labour voters support.  It’s past time to see it:  The rise of the Farage Labourite!

And in Northern England, yet more defections from Labour to UKIP (This is a February 2014 article admittedly):

Blue-collar workers, such as those Ukip byelection candidate John Bickley and North-West MEP Paul Nuttall came to meet in a Wythenshawe pub last Thursday, are a prime source of the party’s growth. Bickley and Nuttall were buoyed by what they heard.

Joiner Ray Hendley, 36, explained: “I’m voting for Ukip because the other parties talk rubbish. They want to keep everything in the capital – as long as London’s fine, they don’t care.”

Graham Lowe, a warehouse superviser and ex-Labour voter, said he had switched his vote because of Ukip’s stance on immigration. “Every night in the pub the conversation turns to foreign workers,” he said.

(Labour won this by-election but UKIP came in second ahead of the Tories!)

Wake me up with it is May 22!  UKIP is fighting your fight in the UK against globalism, world government and a superempire.  While America slept, it is 1940 again in Great Britain.  The outcome is still in doubt.

UPDATE:  I am asking for testimonials from Farage Labourites over my Twitter channel.  We’ll update as needed…

    At the last count including Mr Milliband (the working mans friend) there are 12 other millionaires on the Labour Parties front bench. The Spectator newspaper dubbed them the Bollinger Bolchevics. It got so embarassingly bad Milliband had to be told in no uncertain terms to basically GET OUT MORE amongst real ordinary everyday voters and stop closeting himself with his own class

      Henry, I am glad to hear from you. I think I have tapped into a degree of alienation among the UK voters that UKIP has tapped into. The major parties lie and do not keep their word and there has been some serious corruption among MPs.

      I also think Labour’s nanny-state plan for fighting obesity and poor health will increase that alienation.

      The EU elections will be exciting.

      Is it May 22 yet? 🙂

    Its May 23rd were more interested in just to see the crestfallen devastated expressions on the establishment elite faces
