Reader’s Comment of the Day: In trying to destroy Ukip, the Tories hurt only themselves


In response to Jago Pearson: For the Tories this is still the election to lose, misomiso wrote:

Even though a lot for what you say is true Jago, the flaw is wanting Dave to ‘squash’ the Ukip threat to unify the Right. Ukip are the Right, they represent the old working class patriotic vote that used to vote Tory, and their leadership has a lot of political talent.

Rather than squash them, they need to be brought into the fold. In obsessing about destroying Ukip, Osborne and his political tacticians are only hurting themselves.

The truth is that the only people who want to stay in the EU are the Tory old guard and the money men, together with an alliance of North London liberals.
