How UKIP should have won Heywood & Middleton

It was a great performance by UKIP to lose by only 617 votes but they could have won if they had been more streetwise in their choice of candidate. I am not being wise after the event. Look at what I wrote on 22nd September,;postID=5229320331120355049;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=12;src=postname

Mr Bickley had been tried twice before and the media were asking questions about his background.

My main criticism of his choice relates to his being male. I wrote yesterday about Farage & UKIP's well known lack of appeal to women voters.;postID=4362713700386700497;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=1;src=postname

It was blindingly obvious that to try and counteract this they should have chosen a local woman as candidate. Look how well they did in Eastleigh with Mrs James. This was made worse by Labour putting up a woman candidate.

A pity, a good result but it could have been the real game changer but Farage and his cabal of course had other things on their tiny minds.
