UKIP ODDS TUMBLE TO 8/1 IN WYTHENSHAWE BY-ELECTION

Labour is odds on to win this safe seat of course but odds on a UKIP victory are shortening by the day. This would have been considered a hopeless seat for UKIP only a year ago but now they’ll look to clean up the collapsing Lib Dem and BNP votes, a big but soft Tory but anti-Labour vote in East Sale and the non-voters of Wythenshawe. I said on Sunday that we are sleepwalking to a UKIP/Tory coalition in 2015 after a big UKIP win in Euro elections in May. Their problem is winning a parliamentary seat but one day there’s going to be an epic shock result in their favour. A good showing in Wythenshawe will clearly mean they have made gains from the working class Labour voters. As far as I can see the only force that can galvanise the working class vote in 2015 is Class War. It’s getting late comrades……..if not us……….

*****Seriously looked at running CW candidate in Wythenshawe. We had two strong local possible candidates but neither wanted to stand. Fair enough – its a big step standing in a by-election. If there’s anyone I haven’t asked………..

    UKIP had got as low as 4/1 now up to 6/1

    On the link you will find some other interesting bets.

    Such as Clegg only being 1/4 to retain his own seat. Which is the highest price for any political leader. I think it’s worth a punt as I could see him being disgraced on #GE2015 election night.

  2. You’re right there about us sleepwalking into a UKIP/Tory coalition… I was saying that before the county council elections of May last year… most people said I was being ridiculous, and it was “they’ll split the Tory vote, which can only be a good thing”. The same people who say it’s ridiculous when you point out only 30% of people voted, so nobody should be in charge.

    A surge by the Greens could improve UKIPs chances. Natalie Bennett’s performance on Andrew Neil’s show on Sunday won’t have done them any good though as he forced her to disclose her most nutty and unpopular policies. I suspect the media are out to skewer Greens and UKIP alike under the cloak of “closer scrutiny”. When will they turn on CW?
