UKIP did not defeat Labour in the Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner election (Labour had just over 50% and UKIP 31%) but did place a strong second.  Over 74,000 people voted for UKIP in an area where Labour should dominate.

BUT, the latest poll from the MP by-election in Rochester and Strood is encouraging:  The UKIP margin for Mark Reckless is up to FIFTEEN percent!  Here is the Daily Mail story and the headlines say it all:

UKIP on course to crush Conservatives in Rochester and Strood by-election after taking 15-point lead, poll finds

  • UKIP on course to defeat the Conservatives in by-election on November 20
  • Candidate Mark Reckless has a 15-point lead over his former party
  • UKIP’s vote has increased by eight points since last month 
  • Despite Prime Minister David Cameron pledging to ‘throw the kitchen sink’ at the attempt to hold the seat
  • Warnings that Mr Cameron could face a leadership challenge if the Conservatives fail to win the seat 
Not much more I can say.  I will say that since the EU sent the UK a 1.7 billion pound bill (about $2.5 billion) the support for the liberty and sovereignty party has grown nationally to 19% and many, as many as 1/3 in each district would vote for UKIP if it had a chance to win.  There is even talk of successfully challenging up to 100 seats in Parliament.  (I think UKIP should challenge ALL the seats but that is a huge expense.)

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