  1. If a company had as big a PR campaign for a new product they were launching than UKIP did via the BBC for the elections just passed, but got the same results as UKIP got (in the case of the product, very few sales), that company would likely go bust! How a party such as UKIP get so much coverage despite so few returns electorally saddens me.

  2. Reblogged this on Vox Political and commented:
    On the night of the European election results it is notable that in Wales, the Liberal Democrats won less than 29,000 votes. If replicated in the 2015 general election, they would lose all of their Welsh MPs.
