The UKIP candidate called at our home today and left an election communication in the form of a letter. Clearly after disaffected Tories.
In UKIP most of us are Conservatives who have left following the party's betrayal of Conservative principles: on Europe, on immigration, and on local government.
Could one of my UKIP friends explain what the betrayal is in respect of local government?
No sign of the Liberal Democrats, not even an election leaflet: and this in a ward the party has held seats.
At the beginning of April I expressed the opinion that the Conservatives would hold the seat, just. However, this was before the Budget and the hoo-hah surrounding the Culture Secretary. Too close to call, although I suspect the Conservatives will do well on the postal votes and have a superior election day organisation.
