It does seem to appear that UKIP really do seem to have rattled the Tories. Today we have the marvellous news that the Tories are abandoning their support for ID cards, a UKIP policy for the past few years, which can only be a good thing.
Then in the aftermath of a blaze of publicity for the slow re-branding of UKIP into the Independence Party, we find Edward Leigh of the Cornerstone (unkindly nicknamed Tombstone) Group firing both barrels at the Cameronian vacuum. Though of course to save his blushes he repeats the transparent lie that UKIP are a 'single issue' party. Well I suppose he is right if a simngle issue is the issue of Independence, and all that that entails. Add this to Tim ‘Con Home’ Montgomrie’s rallying cry for UKIP in the Times last week and a picture emerges.
They are in the words of the Baroness, “Frit”.
For pity’s sake, Labour are in meltdown and the Tories are running scared of UKIP!
