Just as UKIP falls apart. Still, it is worth noting, in the midst of the media Cameron lovefest, that three MPs elected as Tories in 2005 no longer have the whip, and two of those have now joined other parties. There are still two more years to go before the next General Election.
Half of UKIP's votes at the last European Elections - its high water mark - must have come from Labour supporters, or Lib Dems in, especially, the West Country.
Add together the Tory and UKIP figures in London, the West Country, any of the three Northern regions, or either of the Midland regions, and you get a ridiculously high figure. But add half of UKIP's figure to the Lib Dem one in the West Country or the Labour one anywhere else, and it makes perfect sense.
So there's no point in the Tories courting UKIP voters as UKIP falls apart. Half of them were never Tories anyway.
Meanwhile, those Labour supporters who gave their votes to UKIP at the last European Elections will have somewhere to go at the next ones. And then at the General Election a year later. Not even the Electoral Commission would dare refuse to register a party set up by 12 sitting MEPs. Watch this space...
