Owen Jones asserts that Newark was "Stalingrad"

Owen Jones firmly believes that one swallow makes a summer:  http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/jun/06/analysis-newark-ukip-is-feeling-the-effect-of-protest-votes

How on earth can he make so many sweeping conclusions based on one result?

And if he is right where does that leave the left's straw-clutching theory that UKIP will pull back the Conservatives in 2015 thus letting Labour through to victory?

Owen Jones asserts that Newark was "Stalingrad" for UKIP.

When a journalist starts comparing scenarios to Nazi Germany we know he has run out of ideas and it is time for the publication he works for to shuffle him to one side.
