Mark Ferguson looking at the UKIP effect upon Labour

This is a fascinating article on LabourList - Mark Ferguson looking at the UKIP effect upon Labour:  http://labourlist.org/2014/11/proof-if-any-were-needed-that-ukip-could-cost-labour-seats-that-we-need-to-win/

However he rather spoils things by the blinkered (one could almost say bigoted) phrase "...many preferring to plump for the backwards anti-politics of UKIP".

This not only insults the electorate (which is never wise, even in the obscurity of LabourList).

It fails to understand UKIP - and if you do not understand your enemies you stand little chance of defeating them (I speak of course as a Conservative).
