What are the odds of that?

Ladbrokes are offering odds of 100/1 on most seats for a UKIP win at the general election.

At those odds it's worth putting a pound on a couple of seats, especially in the Stafford and Stoke area where UKIP has been doing particularly well in local elections.

But simply putting UKIP down as 100/1 (the same as the BNP, incidentally) looks a bit too much like a finger in the air job for Ladbrokes when they have UKIP at odds of 1/10 to win a seat at the general election.

55% of the voters support the policies of UKIP, but will not vote for us in elections for the Westminster parliament.

UKIP's message is too complicated, and we must make our message simpler.

The EU is trying to destroy our parliament at Westminster, and replace it with an EU federal parliament based in Brussels.

This is the sort of simple message that the voters can understand.

If we keep our message simple then we will win seats at the next general election.

message isn't complicated, but to voters all about the EU over there. UKIP needs to start talking about local issues. That means having someone in charge in Britain. And it needs to be pro an English parliament. Farage should spend the next year in Britain campaigning for the next general election.
