    Farage looks to more gains after Rochester.

    Post by papa_umau on Sun 23 Nov 2014, 1:31 pm

    Nigel Farage has said that UKIP can become a major force in Parliament at next year's election after its victory in the Rochester and Strood by-election.

    UKIP's leader said Mark Reckless's win made him think the party could take twice as many seats as it had thought.

    Mr Reckless gained 16,867 votes, 2,920 more than Conservative Kelly Tolhurst's 13,947, with Labour's Naushabah Khan on 6,713 - ahead of the Green Party.

    The Liberal Democrats were forced into fifth place with just a few hundred votes.




    This certainly must put the shivers up the backs of the Tories and make Nick Clegg think that it is finally all over for his party.

    Farage is riding on the crest of the wave produced by the incompetent Tories and something tells me that all that will change at the general election next May.

    I don't know if "all" that will change at the election as there is a lot of water to go under the bridge before that.

    At the moment the leadership of The Tory party just don't know how many of their hard-line back-benchers are willing to risk the future of the party because of their desire for us to get out of Europe.

    This has been a historical problem in the Tory party, and always will be.
