Full marks to her here:
Rumblings suggest they may, as the latest poll has Labour at 19%, neck and neck with Ukip for fourth place.
We\’ve had so many snide remarks and references from the columnar classes. Michael White wrote about a council by election in Hartlepool and said we came fourth. We came second. A Times leader said we had "imploded". Sam Coates at The Times claimed that we weren\’t even going to stand in these elections. The Sun carried their own poll and the online version was rewritten to remove any reference to UKIP.
But here we have someone simply reading the polls and reporting what they say. A welcome step forward.
Oh, and if I might just add?
If you are in the London region and you vote on June 4 th for UKIP then you\’ll be voting in part for me, your jovial and avuncular blog host. There will have to be an awful lot of you who do to get me elected but that\’s a good thing, not bad.
I wonder if I might be able to persuade Polly herself?
