And the establishment continues to dribble oatmeal on its chin:
William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, said that voters who backed Ukip in the European elections would come back to the Tories next year.
“I think there is a deep disillusionment and dissatisfaction not just in this country but across Europe,” he said. “I think that people do know that in the European elections they can have a free vote, a free hit. It is very different from a general election.”
He added: “People are entirely capable of voting different ways in different elections. People use different elections to deliver different messages.”
They have yet to learn that they’ve been circumvented by a party that not only listens to people, but also have the ability to state their case, convincingly, that democratic representation begins at home, where it is closest to the people. Handing sovereignty over to a foreign government does not serve the citizenry whatsoever, only the statist elites.
Ukip storms European elections
Nigel Farage says Ukip’s success in the European elections will ‘terrify’ political establishment and prove ‘disastrous’ for Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg
The UK Independence Party has won a national election for the first time, taking the most votes and seats in the European Parliament elections.
The Ukip victory came as anti-establishment parties advanced across the European Union, with the racist National Front winning in France.
The win for Ukip, which was only founded in 1993 and does not have a single MP or council leader, is the biggest challenge to Britain’s main parties for decades.
Even before final results were declared, sources in all the British political parties said that Ukip had won.
Early results showed Ukip had gained five new MEPs and could finish with around 28 per cent of the vote.
Unofficial estimates from party sources suggested Labour would get around 25.7 per cent, narrowly ahead of the Conservatives on 24.5 per cent.
