Another good by-election result for UKIP

Local by-election in Runnymede and Weybridge constituency – Englefield Ward – 23.11.06.

Turn out 16.18%

Conservative 664 45.9%

Lib Democrat 317 21.9%

UKIP 281 19.4%

Labour 150 10%

Monster R L 34 2.8%

UKIP candidate Toby Mickelthwaite

UKIP’s percentage last time 5.7%

UKIP got 3rd in this electon, only 37 votes to the Lib Dems who came 2nd.
Its seems that UKIP have been doing better in by-elections recently coming 3rd or even 2nd. Soon maybe UKIP will start WINNING council seats and running local councils.
This surge is because of several possibilites:
1) The increase in UKIP being in the media since Farage was elected leader
2) The increasing effect that the Conservative Party is starting to turn to the left.
3) UKIP starting to take local issues most seriously and not using the one issue approach on getting out of the EU.

If UKIP keeps this up then it will look good for the 2007 local elections.
