No UKIP candidate. Shows they must consider Caulfield a pro-Brexiteer.

No it shows that they are realists, they stand no chance in Lewes, would probably go from 3,000 votes last time to under 300.

UKIP finished third last time with over 5000 votes. This decision rubber stamps a Tory win here thankfully

Not necessarily Farage. Look at the numbers last time. A lot of Labour and Green votes in 2015 will probably go Lib Dem this time. And all the Ukip vote won't necessarily go Tory. Going to be interesting though.

I agree Clifford. My heart is with Corbyn but my head is with the Libdems locally. Even that weirdo Paul Newman is on board with this movement which is quite telling. This is serious Momentum.

I think its true that if most labour and green voters go for KMB then the kippers going for Maria won't be enough.
However, from what I hear around Seaford and the villages KMB is not coming over well. I think it will be close.

The Lib Dems have really scraped the barrel, is Kelly Marie Blundell really the best candidate they can muster, for a seat they may actually be able to win ? I suppose, like vegetable picking British people don't want to be Policitians either.

A recent poll suggest that UKIP will get 28% of the votes in Lewes this year. Only second to the Tories at 34%

UKIP won't be getting many votes if they don't put up a candidate. Hard to see many of their supporters voting for the pro-immigration anti-Brexit Kelly-Marie.

The Tories get all of the ukip so an extra 5,500
Judging by the number of Labour posters I'm guessing that not all of them will vote tactically so let's say 2000 will support lib dem. Add in the Green vote another 2000. So, the Tories had approx 1000 majority plus another 5500 ukipers
It's game over kids. Maria wins with increased majority

What about the Tories who are coming to realise that their "Strong and Stable Leader" is nothing of the sort, who is conducting a shambles of a campaign that is turning people against her party? They will be looking to vote the Tories out everywhere. Including Lewes. And that means a Lib Dem victory in our constituency.

Lewes town with its supporters of unrealistic idealist views do not deserves a good MP like Maria Caulfield. Fortunately the sensible people in the rest of the constituency will appreciate her enough to vote her back in- as part of a strong and stable government. (my words; not just Mrs. May's).
