UKIP are not just taking votes off the Tories – there is a large former Labour contingent now voting for Nigel Farage’s party

Canvassing on the estates of Eastleigh, I was amazed to see so many UKIP posters in the windows. Surprised as well to hear on the doorstep so many people who were down as Labour leaning or said they had been solid Labour voters in the past who said they were voting UKIP in the by-election. One old guy told me he had voted Labour all his life but was going to vote UKIP now as he didn’t think that Labour “stands up for the working man anymore. They only care about people on welfare these days” (I should for clarity sake mention at this point that I was canvassing for the Lib Dems. You may enjoy the old guy’s quote regarding this: “You Liberals are scum. Nothing personal, mind you”).

There has been some glee from the left

The Housing Project
The Bay Area's 45 Worst Slumlords, Real Estate Speculators, Gentrification Profiteers and Other Contributors to the Housing Crisis
This research was developed by a team of volunteers who interviewed tenant attorneys, tenant rights activists, and tenants throughout the Bay Area and conducted background research (mostly on the web) on the landlords recommended by these people. We’re sure it’s not a complete list and would love for you to add to it—with information about other landlords or more details on the ones we already know about. A list of South and North Bay landlords is in the works, but to begin, here are our choices for the worst actors in San Francisco and the East Bay. Background articles on many of these landlords are available...
