Vote UKIP - Get Labour
That is the message on the latest Conservative leaflet currently being distributed throughout the Stalybridge South ward. The leaflet is a very well produced A3 sized full glossy. To view the content click on either image to enlarge.
The Conservatives are rightly concerned about the phenomenal growth of Ukip as it is highly likely that Ukip will mop up disillusioned Conservative voters just as the BNP once did with disillusioned Labour voters.
The real dilemma for many people who oppose the E.U. will become more evident as the 2015 general election nears. It is almost a foregone conclusion that Ukip, barring a catastrophic scandal, will easily emerge from the 2014 European elections as the winning party. With that winning momentum they will be very confident about making impressive gains in the 2015 general election, and this is where the dilemma appears as the Conservatives are likely to offer and be the only party capable of delivering an in/out referendum on Britain's E.U. membership. There is a real chance that enough Conservative voters will switch to Ukip leading to a Labour government in 2015 and our once in a generation opportunity to vote ourselves out of the E.U. will then be gone, possibly for ever.
Given that choice, how would you vote? Ukip because that's what your heart tells you or Conservative because that's what your head tells you?
