The bill has been a project for most of the term.
Please god say that you meant to say week instead of term, more holes than swiss cheese in that thing.

OK it took several months to get started on bill-writing, but the idea's floated around for most of the term.

The bottom right one is the most worrying for the Conservatives.
I find it highly unlikely that he'd increase his vote share or that every lost voter from 2010 will go to Ukip.

I'll look at it deeper but that looks dodgy to me.

The fact that there is no current Tory candidate, and that he has had a major publicity fest will skew it a bit. However the 'like Carswell' bit is at 20% of the voters is quite hopeful for them.

However the poll should do the job of persuading other potential jumpers.

The Daily Mail is supposed to be dodgy.

Looking at the UK polling site it looks to be a Survation poll who tend to show higher Ukip support anyway. I'm also deeply suspicious that the Labour vote would collapse to such an extent. The by-election pattern this parliament is for them to stand still at worst though the Lib Dem fall looks in line.

Both are now gone. They were all nothing but spammy threads so y'all would probably be better off bringing it into here if that's alright please.

It's annoying that all of this has happened on probably my least active weekend for several months :rolleyes: I've been observing from the sidelines but not really had the best chance to sit down and deal with it til now. Even then I'm sat in London on an iphone that's probably gonna die soon (on the plus side I'm sat outside the real House so if I get political withdrawal I won't have to walk far)

To give my opinion on the proceedings; I would close polls early every now and then when I was Speaker particularly when the result was really really clear but here it would have been best if it was kept open just due to how close it was, I have seen these things change with mins to spare before. There's no reason for anyone to start another witch hunt at Faland though, he's made the right decision to relaunch the poll and whatever the result we need to put it all behind us once we know the outcome.

I can't say I'm shocked that immigration is the key to UKIP's concerns. I like interesting little charts, although results never go as planned with these

All I can say is I'm glad I don't live in Clacton.

The family who until earlier this evening were the Royal Family are descended from the House of Hannover. It had gone 1801 hours there when the poll closed.

It is only in Great Britain and Northern Ireland that Elizabeth Windsor is now no longer the Head of State. Elizabeth is still Queen and Head of State in Australia, New Zealand and 12 other countries or territories.

I am now thinking about the manifesto I will put forward when the time comes. As I have resigned from the House I am now leaving the bar.
Isn't that every single white person is descended from them?

You only have to glance at Clacton to see why. It's another one of those typical all-British, elderly, white, constituencies with very little immigration.

2001 Census Results:

Over 60: 37.1% - Second highest in UK in 2001
White: 98.7%
Born outside UK: 3.6%

Once again UKIP gaining ground in areas virtually unaffected by the so called "problems" that Farage is campaigning against.

I know these results are 2001 results but I imagine not much has changed since then.

Very surprising, although a UKIP-Conservative pact would be surely what would happen, should UKIP boom?

I don't think a pact will occur, Cameron is smart enough to know that enabling Ukip would be one of the worst things he could do in the long term.

Personally I would consider such a pact an act of weakness and would vote against the Tories accordingly.
