I've lost count of the number of attacks on UKIP that are coming from the Telegraph, Daily Mail and even today The Spectator.
One thing is sure - the establishment is rattled.
And so they should be.
Dear good people of Rochester & Strood,
Give them something to be worried about.

So finally the consequences of Labours plans to fan the flames of nationalism, anti English bigotry, and grievance in Scotland are coming home to roost.
There's an opinion poll this evening that represents near wipe out for labour in Scotland. Indeed not on a scale seen since Labour and the Lib Dems decide to push the Scottish constitutional convention and the sinister and notorious Scottish claim of right to wipe the Tories out.
What goes around seems to come around.
This may be terminal for Labour, or perhaps just Ed Miliband. ( There is a school of thought that thinks the circumstances are being engineered to drop Ed. )
But whatever the truth of the plots and rumours of anyone cares to save the union they are going to need a better plan than the current devolution mess and hope for the best.
And let's not forget thus is the result of Labours willful vandalism if what was once called out nation.

The truth is Labour have been dying in Scotland for quite some time, in part aided by the fact that as a Unionist party Labour sent is talent to Westminster not Holyrood.
The boost in SNP membership and the decline in Labours combined with the loss of hinterland that proportional representation has created in local Scottish government and now in the Scottish Parliament has been deeply damaging to Labour. So has the insane fight to be left wing between just about everyone except UKIP and the sad rump of the Scottish Conservative and Unionist party.
Labour has been hollowed out for many years, starting in the days of John Major.
Now, with the reignation of their figure head leader in Scotland, the whole partty looks like being on the verge of collapse.
Its hard to see Labour in Scotland as having a future, and many young Scots who are drawn to power and public spending will be drawn to the SNP not Labour. Especially as Scottish Labour isn't really Unionist in that many of its key members signed the separatist Scottish Claim of Right.
Labour is close to collapse, and so too in the Union between England and Scotland.
It will take real leadership to reverse this one - not dictatorship under Gordon Brown.

Congratulations to the people of Clacton for keeping one of the best MPs in Westminster and the bonus of getting the first UKIP MP elected to Parliament.
I saw Tim Aker on the TV talking about Essex going Purple, and I think he may well be shown to be right.
The people of Essex form a collective opinion about our politicians. They loved Maggie, they lost faith in John Major. They really hated Brown, but that hasn't persuaded them to embrace Cameron.
Essex is the place of revolutions and revolts from Watt Tyler, the Roundheads, and even the Thatcherites. Being on the wrong side of Essex opinion is bad for your political health - just ask Neil Kinnock about Basildon.
And significant areas of Essex are lining up behind UKIP.
Now there's going to be trouble .....

It's time for an English parliament. Labour want to Balkanise England because they think they can't win here ( I think they are wrong, they would just have to listen to the people of England and put forward English Labour policies - which after all is the point ! ).
We need to push now for an English Parliament.
