If he’s right, UKIP could yet hold the balance of power at Westminster.
Interestingly Roger Helmer wasn’t there at the Spring Conference. The emphasis is clearly not on energy policy at this moment.
I read their latest publicity – not even a mention of gas drilling/fracking unlike six months ago when Helmer was lionising the whole catastrophe.
Maybe Farage is going door to door and hearing over and over again ‘I’d like to support you but you’re supporting fracking’ and the penny’s dropped.
Not wanting to moan at UKIP’s environmental policy platform too much at this point, you have to say Farage is going for it, getting focused and is talking a lot of sense.
He’s spending all his time down in the Kent area where he believes the main electoral breakthrough will come. It’s now or never for Farage and UKIP, it has to be said.
Which way will it go on May 7th?
