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.

The full Bradford West result (with share of the vote and change since 2010 in brackets):

George Galloway (Respect) 18,341 (55.89%, +52.83%)
Imran Hussain (Lab) 8,201 (24.99%, -20.36%)
Jackie Whiteley (C) 2,746 (8.37%, -22.78%)
Jeanette Sunderland (LD) 1,505 (4.59%, -7.08%)
Sonja McNally (UKIP) 1,085 (3.31%, +1.31%)
Dawud Islam (Green) 481 (1.47%, -0.85%)
Neil Craig (D Nats) 344 (1.05%)
Howling Laud Hope (Loony) 111 (0.34%)

Hi,

qwhen one considers that much was made of their new turncoat Ms Sonja McNally as a strong candidate with a prominent local profile who would do well in West Bradford one can only assume by her reasult that the catastrophy was as a result of association with UKIP under its present untrustworthy racist and anti homosexual leadership clique and its odious claque:
Sonja McNally (UKIP) 1,085 (3.31%, +1.31%)

To be fair she did nearly as well as Nigel Farage did in the General Election - though like Nigel Farage coming third in a one horse race in Buckinghamshire, without Labour or LibDim participation Ms. McNally's achievement at such a time in the electoral cycle was a cringeworthy achievement sadly on a par with UKIP under its present utterly unprofessional and incompetent leadership.

May I congratulate Junius for finding the enthusiasm to even report on this embarrassing result - so redolent of UKIP achievements in any or all domestic elections!

They only needed to increase their vote 10 fold to have managed to be of some relevance - I expect young Farage's school reports read something like:
'Must try harder and concentrate on learning the skills for the job in hand being far too easilt distracted by measures to enhance his pocket money or pursue his self interest hobbies to be likely to pass his exams to achieve stability or respect, in the long run, even as an entertainer.'

It is hard to expect a leopard to change its spots - though as a money making scam politics has clearly proved far more profitable than his earlier antics as a gambler in 'The City' where even then alcohol and libido were his consistent undoing!

It is quite clear from actual results rather than often fanciful polls that UKIP is unlikely ever to have any relevance in domestic politics and the unprofessional back stabbing, squabbling and self seeking of its leadership clique and the claque of wannabes has ensured no one is ever likely to take them any more seriously as a political force to Leave-The-EU than they do in their dedication to reverse smoking & health laws, drug policies, speed cameras, waning public interest in pubs and the other fripperies where it seems to be the only place that UKIP can gain any traction as a farce to be reckoned with.

Many UKIP supporters, like myself, will be equally sad to see the continued demise of what had been a great hope for Britain - it is sad they just drifted away and did not stand their ground to speak out as a small handful of us have - had those who lefty in disgust remained as we do perhaps speaking out might have changed the party adequately to give it relevance but as will be noted from the reduction in interest on my blog and in various desperate little forums UKIP is clearly seen increasingly as irelevant - a position taken by the media a considerable time ago.

It is just a meager hope that keeps a few of us posting in the hope of change and mature professionalisation of the hopelessly corrupt and ethically retarded UKIP.

Evening Junius,

Not many people will have noted what Farage said before the Bradford by-election (in the context of the Mail on Sunday Poll fantasy):

"These new figures underline a new reality in British politics, a reality that will be highlighted in [the] Bradford by-election, there are four parties, and one of them is on the up."

http://ukip.org/content/latest-news/2634-momentum-gains-for-ukip

UKIP Position - Fifth


So just as in Buckingham where UKIP came a poor 3rd in a 2 horse race, in Bradford we have UKIP a poor 5th in a 4 horse race...

I nearly wept when I read this.
