Eight Tories 'in secret lunch
plot to defect to UKIP' as two parties go to war over electoral pact
Eight Tory MPs are in talks about defecting to the UK Independence Party, its millionaire treasurer has claimed.
A series of 'secret lunches' have been held by Stuart Wheeler, a former Conservative donor now trying to coax MPs to join UKIP.
Conservative Party vice-chairman Michael Fabricant had urged the Premier to strike a deal with UKIP, arguing it could help the Tories pick up 20 seats
at the next election.
It certainly seems that the Tory party is afraid of losing a lot of votes to the UKIP. The recent scandal over the left wing social workers acting
like Stasi thought police by removing foster children from a couple due to them supporting the UKIP has given the party much very welcome positive
I've heard a lot on this story over the weekend, quite a few discussions on the radio. LBC had Nick Ferrari's interview with Cameron on heavy
rotation, where he said out that UKIP members are "loonies, fruitcakes and closet racists" only a couple of years ago. UKIPs policies haven't
changed in that time, so what's the change with Cameron? It's funny how the political wind has changed. It's probably worth pointing out that Nick
Ferrari is well-known for his full-on right wing views in the media, it's not as if it's part of a left wing plot to portray Cameron as a hypocrite.
The clip is here
There as an interesting discussion yesterday on LBC where it was pointed out that the children in this story are actually East European and how that
actually sat with UKIPs views on immigration from Eastern Europe and how you'd explain to the children themselves that 'whilst we still love you,
we'd rather you hadn't come here at all and we now want to raise the drawbridge now so little boys and girls like you can't come here any
The wider context of this was that whilst people can have fairly hardline politics, it's often difficult when they have to been applied to
individuals and it takes a personal context. I've seen this in action myself: racists trying to tell black/Asian people saying things along the lines
of 'no, not you
you're all right, I mean them
, you know, them
. I've had it applied to me with me politics, health and
benefits and so on. They don't mean me, personally, just the people like me, that aren't me
