This is a fascinating article on the rise of the UKIP in polls and election results.  I think the writer makes a good case but his conclusion will foresee denial by the Tories.  Paul Goodman thinks the solution is immigration:

The key issue for UKIP voters is immigration.  If the Government lasts its full term, it needs to be able to point to success at the end of it in allieviating pressure on housing, schools, hospitals, transport and public services.  Bringing non-EU immigration down to the “tens of thousands” is therefore essential.  As for EU immigration, Ministers should be examining the radical ideas that have been floated by Nick Boles.

(Boles calls for essentially reducing the subsidy that encourages immigration from other EU countries.  As Ron Paul rightly said in the 2007 debates, if you subsidize something you get more of it.)

It seems to me that immigration is a key reason for leaving the EU and thus the immigration issue cannot be separated from Europe.  The UKIP is the only legitimate political party calling for fundamental change in the relationship between the UK and Europe.  The Boles immigration ideas would be struck down by some court in Brussels or the UK will be given a “ticket” by the EU elites.  Then what?  British voters will realize that their only human hope for liberty and sovereignty is the UKIP.

As for PM Cameron, I cannot support him anymore after he said that the best way to reform the EU is to work within the system.  I am sorry, the EU is  beyond reform.  It is a threat to liberty and sovereignty that needs to be fundamentally altered to respect sovereignty and liberty in each nation while preserving the free trade system.  I also criticize PM Cameron for supporting a court decision saying that devout Christians cannot foster children for holding traditional Christian beliefs.  This is legalized persecution of followers in Christ – in the UK!  (My fellow followers of Christ in the USA – this shows how close we are to official persecution in the West!  Jesus was right when he said believers would be persecuted in the end times.  For those who want to know how to be right with God, go here!)   I am sorry to say:  The Prime Minister is not a true conservative.  True conservatives in the UK have only one place to go – the United Kingdom Independence Party.

    Commentators struggle to pin down the “core” of UKIP voters. We come from all parties and classes. A religious view would soon detect a disproportionate growth between the size of UKIP as a party and the growth of Ukipism. Our belief in democracy, justice and freedom unites us. Rule by the EU is the most direct threat to this.
    While we are ruled by the EU we cannot have our own immigration policy. We are forced to accept a racially prejudiced European policy, discriminating against the rest of the world. The irony is that our media can twist this round and call UKIP racist.
    Lab/Con and Labour the main parties have all broken pre election promises of a referendum on EU membership. The country is tearing itself apart because democracy is being denied. Ukipism is growing fast but UKIP the party is tiny in comparison to the established parties.
    In 2014 UKIP will almost certainly hold the majority of UK seats in the European Parliament. At present they hold more than Labour and Liberal. UKIP MEP’s are there to campaign for our exit from this farce. You couldn’t make it up!

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