Are The Tories Expecting UKIP Will Win the 2014 Election and Them Come 3rd?
About the coming EU election: in 2014
"even if they were to win more seats than any other party it need not mean electoral doom for the Tories the following year." p6
Which sounds like a Tory acknowledgement it is likely UKIP will become Britain's biggest party in that election.
While I am not entirely confident of that it is encouraging that our opponents, particularly one with their hand on the pulse of party organisation, have such faith in us.
I should point out that the main reason for not voting UKIP given to him by the public is that, because we are a small party, it is a "wasted vote". UKIP becoming the largest party and the Conservatives coming 3rd, probably a poor third if we are picking up their vote, would make the "wasted vote" line a positive point for us against them.
