Douglas Carswell: He defected from the Tories to UKIP and then re-won his Clacton seat, if you can remember that far back.

Douglas Carswell: He defected from the Tories to UKIP and then re-won his Clacton seat, if you can remember that far back.

Here’s an interesting point, made by a Vox Political commenter: Both UKIP’s Parliamentary seats have been won by defectors from the Conservative Party, contesting the seats they already occupied.

This leads to an obvious question: Can UKIP win any Parliamentary seats at all with its own candidates?

It also leads to another, less obvious question: Is UKIP just a front for Tories who want to push British politics ever-further into the political right wing that leads to Fascism?

Let’s see what you think.
