A Boost For UKIP?

Gerald Warner, with his inimitable style, once again lambasts iDave and his "Vichy Tories" in his latest post. Discussing the possibility of a hung parliament and any possible deal Cameron would do in order to move into No10 and how this might be received by the 'hard-core' Tory faithful, Gerald says:

"The bottom line is: what kind of masochistic “Tory” would vote for this antithesis of everything he believes in, provoking in the process the extinction of his party, buried beneath the landslide of a PR voting system?"

This begs the question whether that 'hard-core' will hold it's nose and vote Tory, or even LibDem instead - something which is hardly likely. Therefore it has to be considered to whom that vote might be given - and for any 'true' Tory there can only be one possible recipient.

Pearson and Farage must be rubbing their hands with glee!

I sympathise as much with UKIP as the next real Tory but I think we need to be pragmatic now as events has altered the election outcome for the worse.

If the Conservatives do not win an outright majority and the LibDems get in with the help of Labour we will be universally fucked until we die. The right does not stand a chance under PR and Britain will truly become just another region of the EU.

If they do not win we will never get out of the EU because everyone who will be ruling us under PR system hates us and hates Britain. They are mere stooges put in place for their wellbeing and the EU's - not ours.

My cross was firmly on the UKIP box before the LibDems barged in but now I am not so sure - we will be obliterated if the VIchy Tories do not win. We who believe in grammar schools, free choice, free enterprise, free market, strong defence, standing up for our values, common sense, english common law, non-PC etcetera - it will all go if it is changed to PR.

This election went from being a partisan choice to the survival of personal ideology.

If you so much as mention 'immigration' under LibDem rule they will probably throw you into a re-education camp.

Well 13th, I stick to my view that one hell of a lot of Tories will not hold their nose and vote Tory. Anyway, if the Lib/Lab pact does arrive - then comes the revolution!

I will not "hold my nose and vote tory", there aren't any. Besides I did that for Heath...(boo), that was once too many.
