Looking forward to a proper analysis of the elections after the European count on Sunday not just form the limited number of council seats in a limited number of councils. Equally I am looking forward to some objective analysis not based on the hype of UKIP. I am not sure why the BBC in particular have spent the last couple of years hyping up UKIP. Just how many UKIP councillors are there in the 12,000 council seats and how many MPs will there be in 2015. I predict a maximum of 1-2. Less than each of Sinn Fein, SNP etc !
However, there are serious issues related to the size of the UKIP vote in some geographic areas – Essex, Rotherham and why they did so poorly in London. Lots of lessons and no simple answers.
