Have Tories Handed Wildern to UKIP?

There was no sign of life at Tory Party HQ in Hedge End when I walked past their "southern parishes" clubhouse today.

There is a town council by election on 13th February. The independent candidate, Ray Turner, UKIP, Labour and Lib Dems have all been delivering leaflets. But nothing from the Tories.

With 41% of Conservative members favouring some kind of electoral pact with UKIP, have our local Tories decided to stab their coalition partners in the back and let UKIP have a free run against the Lib Dems?

The Tories do have a record of not turning up in Eastleigh when the going gets tough...

  1. Perhaps the Tories are fielding a 'paper candidate' this time, as UKIP did in 2012....?
    It will be interesting to see what happens in the run-up to Polling Day.
