UKIP lose desposit in Bradford West by-election disaster
A truly terrible result for UKIP. And yet the Farage sycophants seem to think that a pathetic 1.31% increase in the vote, losing your deposit and coming fifth behind the Lib Dems - the party that Farage claimed UKIP had replaced as Britain's third party - is cause for celebration!
It is interesting to note that the usual sycophants were claiming that UKIP would come third with a substantial increase in the vote. How foolish must they feel now!
And what a tragedy for Britain that the odious Galloway has been returned to Westminster!
It is also interesting to note that Galloway got almost 56% of the vote. Compare this result with the last time Farage contested a Westminster by-election. He was contesting a seat where Labour and the Lib Dems were not fielding candidates. UKIP poured money into the campaign and brought in dozens of activists to leaflet and canvass on behalf of Farage. And the result? The UKIP leader came third behind an independent, pro-EU candidate! LINK
UKIP will never send an MP to Westminster under Farage. UKIP exists to keep Nigel and his sycophants on the EU Gravy Train. It exists to serve his vanity and increase the size of his bank balance at the expense of party members and the UK taxpayer.
