UKIP local elections. Another bad result for UKIP

Tandridge District, Whyteleafe. 2nd February.

Lib Dems 444
Cons 236

So much for the claim that UKIP’s vote is increasing. They can't even beat the Lib Dems.

The Farage Sycophants 4 UKIP blog - also known as Bloggers 4 UKIP - was very keen to spin the following result:

Newchapel Ward, Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council. 4th February

Con 208
UKIP 148
Lab 138
Lib Dem 127

They said:

'Well done to the Newcastle Under Lyme Branch for another great result.

What they conveniently forgot to mention was the awkward fact that since 2008 UKIP has only managed to increase their support in the ward by 21 votes!

In June 2008 UKIP got:

Con 416
Lab 220
Lib Dem 180
UKIP 127

And in two other elections held on the same day UKIP could not even find candidates willing to stand:

Queen’s Parks ward, Blackburn with Darwen

Lab 638
Lib Dem 366
Con 174

Holmewood and Heath ward, North East Derbyshire

Lab 373
Con 209

For some strange reason the 'Bloggers 4 UKIP' forget to mention that as well!

Surely a party supposedly going from strength to strength could have found members willing to stand?

And the odious Paul Nuttall - pictured above - STILL thinks he is going to win Bootle for UKIP!

And East Lancashire is supposed to be their strongest branch in the north west.
