That was an interesting election result to wake up to

Very glad to see the Lib-Dems keep Eastleigh.

Very amused to see the Conservatives pushed into third.

Simultaneously worried that so many people voted for UKIP and glad to have a fourth party getting somewhere in England (The more parties that do well, the greater the chance of getting voting reform in, as it makes FPTP look more ibviously broken.)

And with their two approaches mixing so well, I wonder what the chances are of The Daily Mail deciding to back the UKIP as their party of choice...

Edit: Thinking about it - if I was running The Daily Mail then I'd know that there was no way the Conservatives were winning the next election. So moving my support to UKIP until the one after would mean several years of pushing things further right, without risking losing anything (and reminding the Conservatives that they weren't the only option.)
