After their humiliating defeat by Labour in Oldham UKIP is sinking fast as it loses a prominent candidate to Labour. Andrew Tomkinson came third when he stood for Nigel Farage’s party in Pontypridd, South Wales, in May A wannabe MP and Afghanistan war veteran has defected from UKIP to Labour..But I want to see a fairer society, not more tax cuts for the rich.”
He will now campaign for Labour ’s Mick Antoniw in next May’s Welsh Assembly elections.

Not really buddy - they just polled 16% in an independent poll, meanwhile Labour were on 29% hardly an endorsement for Mr. Corbyn who is slowly killing the labour party backed up by his gang of militant trots and the far left who have been extremely unpleasant as of late.
Also how is increasing your share vote in a solid Labour seat a humiliation?
You need to get a brain and a grip. Ukip has it's problems but Nigel Farage has campaigned tirelessly against the EU which has slowly been destroying European democracy and it is quite clear we wouldn't even have a referendum without him so we owe him thanks for that at the very least.

Farage is a liability.I`m backing Suzanne Evans for the leadership only then we can begin to claw back some of the support we are losing.

That poll clearly shows they haven't lost any support despite what the BBC would like us to believe.
Labour meanwhile have lost a large chunk of the electorate and with the Tories on 40% it's quite clear they will lose 2020 if they stick with him.

As for Corbyn the British love an underdog, which is what our press is making him. I think it is quite remarkable how this "old man" has engaged the younger generation, and while I don`t agree with all his policies, he is a breath of fresh air compared to the braying toffs we usually get.As for Farage and Cameron their stars are plainly on the wane.

I wish Cameron was on the wane but without a credible opposition he could be around for a depressingly long time.

It doesn't matter if you don't like Cameron - it will be Georgy Porgy Osborne next time round.
