Dan Hannan predicts Tory victory in EU Elections

As Conservative Party workers and activists despair at the public’s fury over sleaze, and newspapers foresee a hemorrhaging of voters from the big three to smaller parties, Dan Hannan predicts a good Tory win on June 4th.

He might be right. Over the past few months, both Dan and Douglas Carswell have electrified the political arena with their powerful logic and unmistakable integrity as they bashed together the heads of the venal, troughing MPs who have shamed the office they swore to uphold.

A timely book, co-authored by Dan and Douglas, The Plan: Twelve Months to Renew Britain clearly sets out their vision of a better Britain and it is just what we need.

Still, Nigel Farage is upbeat, as he is sure to hoover up support from Labourites and Liberal voters, disaffected by their parties’ refusal to stand by their manifesto pledges to offer a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.

Labour and the LibDems are surely aware that UKIP’s ascendency is largely due to the referendum, immigration and big state issues. Were voters angry about the venality of MPs and political corruption alone, many would choose to spoil their ballot papers or not vote at all. All parties have seriously misjudged people’s anger over loss of sovereignty. After all, permission to lead Britain was lent to politicians by the electorate for a limited term; it was not theirs to sign away for a greedily trousered 30 pieces of silver.

The truth will dawn on Labour and the LibDems after the votes have been counted, that they played a shabby EU game and have been deservedly and decisively cast out into the wilderness.
