Whilst out delivering my latest newsletter this morning, I had an interesting chat with someone considering leaving UKIP and returning to the Conservatives.
It seems UKIP now have a national strategy of trying to convert all councils from the Cabinet to the Committee system. They see it as the easiest way of retaining some element of control and impact when the current popular protest vote recedes. They recognise it does nothing for the people they represent but is all about power.
They now have a name for the Lib Dems, and Labour, Useful Idiots. The UI’s as they are know are used and manipulated to meet the UKIP agenda. Which sort of makes sense because the lib Dems in particular are desperate to cling onto anything that resembles success. But what a way to conduct politics.
