Surely it should have candidates in West Oxfordshire?
According to the Conservative party’s election analyst, Rob Hayward, UKIP has only managed to field full slates of candidates in just six of the 181 council areas where elections are being held on May 3rd.
These are Adur, Plymouth and Wirral, Eastleigh, Great Yarmouth and Sheffield. In the other 175 council area they are not competing in any wards or are contesting a limited number of wards.
Surprisingly one area with a null return of UKIP candidates is West Oxfordshire where David Camneron’s Westminster seat is. Is this deliberate? Does Mr Farage want to give Cameron a free ride? One wonders.
Doncaster, home of EdM’s constituency, sees just one UKIP contender while in Nick Clegg’s Sheffield every seat is being fought.
To turn good poll ratings into electoral success you first need to have your people on the ballot.
