BBC NEWSNIGHT say Farrage has lost Thanet South

 Let's hope that it's true that Farrage won't get Thanet South and he will resign! An old adage springs to mind you can fool some of the people some of the time  but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time. Tonight  it looked like Mark Reckless will be looking his seat in Medway and even though he tried to brave it out for the BBC News camera's you could see he was a defeated man. I have  always been a supporter of Labour's Will Scobie for Thanet South he is a local born in Margate and standing in Ramsgate. How local can you get, I doubt there are many MP' s who can say that they were born and bred as close to the seat as Will Scoble.

  1. I didn't see Newsnight but I would be surprised if Farage won. There is evidence that he will get a lot of votes but NO evidence that he will get enough. Why would S Thanet be so different to the rest of the country?
    The only poll that showed him getting a majority was commissioned by UKIP and had a 24% no-response rate making it totally unrepresentative of anything. A meaningless straw poll.
    The other 6 resent polls also said the 3 parties will get a lot of votes in S Thanet but weren't accurate enough to say in what order due again to high no-reply rate.
