Mascot Watch (4)


UKIP to back Eurosceptics in other parties

The party said the Conservative candidates they will not campaign against are Philip Davies in Shipley, Douglas Carswell in Clacton, Janice Small in Batley and Spen, Alex Story in Wakefield and Philip Hollobone in Kettering.

Neither will they challenge independent Bob Spink in Castle Point.
Superb. No UKIP dilution of blog mascot Philip's vote. But then, they didn't dilute it last time around either as they didn't field a candidate in 2005.

However, that 400 majority looks more vulnerable regardless. You see, the left wing BNP won't be taking any votes from Labour (oh yes, that's exactly what happens) this year ... and they got 2,000 of them in 2005.

{Gulp} He's toast.

Canvassing has been fantastic so far - loads of folk like Phil and respect him for his independence and hard work.

Upwards of a dozen folk out with him every day - would welcome more of course if any of your readers fancy a trip up to the South Pennines!

I hope some do, Simon. And good to hear the campaign is going well, best of luck from this blogger.
