UKIP and Independent, a close call.

Lib/Dem. Could lose deposit? Remember school fees?

Don Smith

How can the SNP frighten you? They are about three hundred miles away, be brave my dear.


I see media restrictions this time have been relaxed.

A huge turnout for my area. The first time queuing to vote. I am predicting a very strong UKIP vote but final result for Turner….. However we will all be voting again within 12 months as AT is not going to last much longer


Of course Turner is going to win.

There is little competition really which says a lot if all of the rubbish that’s been flying around about him is even half true.
