Lord Lust, UKIP & Nigel Farage

This is the title of a Daily Mail piece, click below to read it


Lord Lust is a part UKIP backer James Hadfield Hyde once portrayed. He nominated UKIP's Wythenshaw candidate John Bickley. How did he evades Farage's weeding programme designed to root out Walter Mitty types?

Eccentirc: Bickley's backer, James Hadfield-Hyde

John Bickley looks like a good candidate to me. A pity he has to be photographed  with NF

Strategy: Mr Bickley on the campaign trail in Wythenshawe, Manchester, with UKIP leader Nigel Farage, right

The media are seriously cranking up the anti UKIP campaign. Like Saddam Hussein's statue Farage will eventually be toppled. The only question is will EUKIP survive ?

The media are good at highlighting your weaknesses - it makes news and sells news.

As far as I can see all the Westminster parties have come in for a share of being media-bashed lately, even the DimLibs, but not SNP - do I smell a rat ?

To me the UKIP-bashing underlines the pro-EU media determination to undermine UKIP, whose resources have always been too thin to prevent shot-myself-in-foot syndrome.

Whether all of this matters will perhaps show up in tomorrow's by-election result. If UKIP come 2nd it spells trouble for Cameron not UKIP.

Boris stopped the next London Tube strike by compromising with the unions. Cameron must be worried by Boris and a bad result tomorrow will pile on the pressure.
