UKIP take ‘Rochester’ – a mould breaking by-election triumph?

RESULT 04.15 hrs It may well have been soundly predicted by the polls, but nevertheless it was an amazing event TODAY for Mark Reckless to become UKIP’s ‘second’ Member of Parliament, wasn’t it? Rochester had been in a Conservative strong area for some thirty years and with the new boundaries had a massive Tory majority […]

The Rochester by-election is upon us this week – but WHAT will be the consequences?

It is being said that Tory leader David Cameron could be facing rebellious unrest from his backbench MPs next Friday when the Conservatives lose the Rochester & Stroud by-election (as they surely will). It is true that he set his stall out to win this by-election at all costs, so the result will certainly dent […]

The ‘next’ Prime Minister of Britain – ‘Cameron’, ‘Miliband,’ or ‘Someone-Else’?

Next May the public will have their say again, and a General Election will determine who governs the United Kingdom for a while – whether it will be for a full five years is in the melting pot, don’t you think? The two main political parties, Conservatives and Labour are both in the doldrums with […]

Is the BIGGIST crises facing England the ‘Economy’, ‘Europe’, ‘Immigration’, ‘NHS’, ‘Education’ – or the ‘JUSTICE’ system?

We are rapidly approaching a General Election, aren’t we? It is only six months away indeed. The main political parties are girding their loins for the fight, filling their coffers with the cash for the campaign, recruiting and g-ing up their activists, identifying their potential supporters, preparing their strategy, identifying their ‘winnable’ seats, and above […]

British General Election getting closer – be afraid everyone?

  Oh yes the next Election is now just seven months off. The Chinese have a thing about the number 7 don’t they – it’s a ‘lucky’ number you see (auspicious), but it isn’t looking so lucky now though for the three main political British Parties is it? Seven months to go and all three […]

Rochester by-election is heading off – but WHO is running the Country?

The future of UK politics may well be signposted next month by the Rochester & Strood by-election, don’t you think? The Conservatives don’t want to lose this seat to UKIP, and it would certainly be another major setback to their General Election chances. But is the tail wagging the dog here? Is it itself of […]

Rochester & Strood by-election a spectacular success in the making – but for WHO?

In just a month’s time (October 20), the ‘latest’ United Kingdom MP will get elected to the House of Commons. He or she will have the honour of representing the Rochester constituency. Most people will ask “where the heck is that?” and as a rider “why should I care about that MP”? Well, it’s all […]

The Clacton & Heywood by-elections – political history is now made & is UKIP on its way to repace the LibDems or MORE?

Well, well, well, the polls were right on this one – UKIP ‘do’ have their very first MP. A magnificent result for Nigel Farage’s party, without doubt. Ex-Tory Douglas Carswell had switched teams & stood down as MP (in a credible action in this day and age of gutter politics) to win back his seat […]

The Clacton by-election – political history in the making?

There is a watershed by-election about to arrive next Thursday (October 9) in the sleepy, half dead, home of the beach-hut, seaside resort sixties place of Essex’s Clacton-on-Sea, surely? Normally with a significant by-election being ferociously fought, it is all over the newspapers – but have you seen any trace? Probably not and why is […]
