Polling reports suggest Lib Dem support is now consistently under 10%, and UKIP is pushing up to 6-7%. Those of us who blogged that UKIP would be ahead of the Lib Dems by 2015 don’t look quite so foolish as others suggested. Just another couple of wretched EU news, which is guaranteed, could see the overtaking of the Lib Dems by UKIP within a year. Many of UKIP’s new supporters are ex-Lib Dems.
The Conservatives would only make a majority with UKIP inside the electoral tent. It’s time to look beyond the collapsed Lib Dem coalition and get ready for what’s coming next, the UKCP.
