    Default Beastly in Eastleigh - UKIP take 2nd campaigning on Immigration in a 92% White Constituency

    UKIP have surged from 3.6% in 2010 to take 2nd, deprived only by Postal Votes from 1st place.

    Lib Dem over 13K
    UKIP over 11K
    Cons over 10K
    Lab over 4K

    Andrew Neil on "This Week" remarked that it was startling that in a Constituency with so few immigrants that UKIP could do so well campaigning on Immigration.

    What is happening in the UK re the Multicultural Model & its relationship with the EU?

    What is happening within the UK & its own Nations with Scotland's Referendum coming up?

    Borough of Eastleigh - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    One thing you can be sure of for Cam tonight is - it's Beastly in Eastleigh.

    A very biased title for an significant result. Disappointing - I will not be commenting further on this thread because of it.

    Those guys could do with PR STV over there, 13k trumps the other 25k with the second and third on 11k and 10k.

    Lib Dem 32.1%
    UKIP 27.8%
    Con 25.4%
    Lab 9.8%
    Others 4.9%

    A truly amazing result for King Nidge - 3.6% to 27.8% from 2010...

    On this stuff about "92% white constituency" - I'm not sure I see the relevance to immigration.

    Believe me, I live in one of the most multicultural cities in the UK and it is hardly a novelty to hear second and third generation immigrants complaining about recent immigration, which is actually overwhelmingly white in many areas as a lot of it comes from Eastern Europe.

    Immigration and race are not nearly as linked as the media would like to pretend, and people who are concerned about immigration are not necessarily racist.

    The membership of UKIP crosses over with BNP, NF, EDL, etcetera.

    No longer can UKIP be written off as a fringe, Far-Right movement.
