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………..
