much has been made on a couple of political forums of one of the blogs on The Telegraph web site and its reportage masquerading as predicion as with this discussion I am involved in at:
Re: Record UKIP poll ratings
yes the private blog you quoted was a very good bit of spin.
The LibDim support has rightly collapsed and was doing so at the General Election but they were brought into the boy kings ridiculous coalescence of oil and water, which has clearly produced little more than froth.
As for the details quoted in the blog they are in fact wrong – do read the You Gov Poll itself and you will find the blogger misquotes it.
Almost 18 years since UKIP launched is it really considered an achievement of merit when out of some 19,500 varied seats to which politicians can be elected in these United Kingdoms UKIP has less than 30.
Including MEPs elected not on merit, not on ability, not on competence, not on integrity but by Nigel Farage and Mark Croucher promoting The BNP at every opportunity and capitalising of the grossly misleading media coverage of Westminster MPs’ secondary allowances and a handfull of individuals abusing the trust.
The LibDims are indeed in collapse and UKIP may well capitalise on this but with not a single aspirant of any gravitas, competence or integrity in a party bereft of leadership, without vision, strategy or tactics and with a clear reputation of childish stunts, lack of structure and some of the most unpleasant liars, cheats and scheisters in British politics with no stable funding!
Then of course UKIP is held back by both its overt and its covert participation and support of racism, xenophobia, anti Judaism, sexual intollerance and criminal behaviour and violence.
Is it any wonder that UKIP are not within a sniff, let alone striking distance, of gaining the respect of the British electorate in a Westminster election with the hope of getting an MP elected.
Consider the last by election: UKIP dumped their local candidate and parachuted into a Manchester region constituency at Oldham & Saddlebrook a comic book clown from the pubs of Liverpool to mumble his way unintelligibly through his speech opportunities.
Paul Nuttall as Nigel Farage’s placed puppet Chairman of UKIP or is it Farage’s other puppet Steve Crowther who is chairman or the ridiculous Lisa Duffy (oh of course his puppet CEO!) – is it any reason that despite a spend of over £50K relative to a probable £1-2K in the GE yet his achievements were catastrophic at the cost.
You will have noted that Farage’s party in the by election did not even aim for election, nor to make a step to Leave-The-EU and its most notable behaviour was a pub crawl with the aim of displacing The BNP as the stated aim!
As a long term UKIP supporter I find it sad that the blogger you quote was inventing his evidence and sadly was plain wrong, as is clear from the facts.
Unlike many of the parasites surrounding the Farage leadership I have a very clear vision, potential strategies and many tactics but Farage’s antics will ensure UKIP is seen for what it is and the blogger quoted will never see their prediction come true.
Also unlike many of the salaried praise singers of Farage leadership I have no need to roll in the gutter with distortion and lies – nor ad hominem attacks of supporters, the facts of the message are much more consequential than the messengers.
How do YOU suggest UKIP is cleaned up to actually make it electable rather than just a minority default vote?
