As analysed over at Political Betting, the 'certain to vote' poll shares for the Euros are astonishing:-
Labour - 32%
UKIP - 30%
Conservative - 21%
LibDem - 6%
Whilst this may take the wind out of the sails of Farage's critics, I have a feeling that his teflon coating will last just as long as May's election; that whatever Farage / UKIP does between now and May will not dent the desire of the British public to deliver a painful kicking to the political establishment. What happens in 2015 is up for grabs. Current polls show voters returning to the old three, but it's all to play for. If this May brings some big-name Tory defections to UKIP and enough Lords to make up a cricket side, and if Farage loosens his grip on the party, then 2015 is within reach.
