Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UKIP!)

There was a minor council by-election last Thursday – the Silverdale and Parksite ward of Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council.

It was a Labour hold but very interestingly it showed a strong 7.3% swing from UKIP to Labour in an area which was supposed to be a target for Nigel Farage’s party.

Not great news for Nigel I would imagine, who has recently been trying to convince everyone that UKIP doesn’t only enjoy support in the south-east of England and will be targeting more seats in traditional Labour strongholds from now on.

A Thatcher-worshipping, right-wing Tory splinter group campaigning to win over traditional Labour voters?

Good luck to him with that.
