UKIP TAKES MORE VOTES FROM TORIES – Historically the Countryside Alliance has always been one of the Tories most avid supporters, but a recent poll now shows that one in eight members are turning their backs on the Tories and are now supporting UKIP.
The latest poll certainly has David Cameron worried for it showed a massive drop in support by 20% among Countryside Alliance members.
According to the data, UKIP have taken approximately 18% whilst 2% of the vote is being given to Labour.
During the last General Election the Countryside Alliance came out in force with over 15,000 members supporting the Tory Party by engaging in leafleting in order to bring David Cameron to power.
Mr. Cameron will no doubt find this latest poll disturbing for despite his incessant campaign to label UKIP as racists and bigots it appears that UKIP is continuing to make ground due to the electorate becoming more disillusioned with Mr. Cameron’s leadership.
Countryside Alliance recently made a statement in that its members now feel that the Tory Party, and indeed Mr. Cameron, has no interest in what affects those living in rural areas.
These issues range from not being given a free vote on the ban of hunting and the issues surrounding the debacle of the HS2 project.

From the research we’ve undertaken it certainly appears that UKIP is beginning to garner more public support.
From the political forums it appears clear that the public are slowly but surely moving their allegiance.
Whilst Labour may be in the lead by 40%, as the polls suggest, it could well transpire that this position will likely be eroded leading up to the last few months of the General Election; and indeed throughout the campaigning itself.
From the comments in forums and news sites we’ve looked at it appears that people are now considering that maybe it’s time for a different type of leadership.
We have after all suffered at the hands of the Labour Party, Tory Party and Liberal Democrat Party for years with none producing any real results; other than sinking Britain further into debt.
Of course UKIP remains an unknown political quantity in that its politicians and policies have never been tested in power. However, it appears people are posing the idea of “could it get any worse under UKIP?”
This very notion now leads to the question as to whether the British electorate is desperate to find a political party that won’t lie, won’t hand over vast sums of taxpayer’s money to the EU and in Foreign Aids.
Will UKIP succeed in the 2015 General Election? At this stage it does appear unlikely due to currently having only 18% of the vote; however this is a vast improvement over its standing in the last General Election.
It could of course transpire that there is a massive surge of support during the election which could either bring UKIP to power or at least force a coalition.
The issue here is that if such a situation arose would UKIP stick to its guns and refuse an alliance with either Tory or Labour or simply cave in so that UKIP gets a taste of power.
For those who support UKIP, the hope is that if we end up with a hung vote then UKIP will stick to its principles; for their political ideologies bear almost no resemblance to either Tory or Labour and therefore any coalition would be doomed to fail which could cause irrevocable damage to UKIP’s political image.
It is of course early days but we are about to see the race to form the next Government step up a notch and as it stands at present it looks like UKIP might just upset the apple cart more dramatically than Mr. Cameron expects.
