Eastleigh: LibDems Polling in First Place!

Alan Howlin' Laud Hope
Its early days yet, but the Eastleigh by election is due on Feb 28th. Its to be a short campaign, which is wise from the point of view of the incumbents. Of course, it is difficult to defend in a by election if the outgoing MP is looking at a possible spell on the chain gang, but British politics are so parochial that even in thiese circumstances the party faithful will still follow their instincts.

I am delighted to report that Howlin' Laud Hope will be contesting the election on behalf of the Official Monster Raving Loony Party.

The Lib Dems are currently polling on top.

That surprises me, but that is how it is.

William Hill put the LibDems at 10/11 to hold the seat. Tories are evens, Labour third, with UKIP at a sad 25/1.  Given that Labour has yet to declare a candidate, this is not the greatest show of confidence in UKIP.

But never mind, even if UKIP do come near to last (as is now normal in by elections), their candidate has never stood there before, and if she didn't stand then she would get nothing. Therefore, even 0.1% of the vote is better than nothing, and will prove that: "UKIP, is, now, the turd largest, party, in the UK. To be sure, Sir. Yes it is, and wind turbines, do not, work. ever (they told me to say that)"  Now I am being a bit sarcastic here, but lets just say that I know the dynamics well!

Another Loony Landslide!!!!!!
