In Eastleigh by-election it's a 3-way race: Centrist, conservative and libertarian-conservative; socialist Labour need not apply

FASCINATING REPORT! STUNNINGLY EMBARRASSING POLITICAL MOMENT AT THE 2:00 MINUTE MARK

From Eric Dondero:

Imagine a congressional race in the U.S. with a strong conservative Republican, an equally strong blue dog moderate Democrat, and a Libertarian Party candidate posing a serious challenge to both flanks; with only a token leftwinger thrown in for giggles. That's essentially what you have in this UK special election set for Friday.

Headline, UK Independent:
Labour fears 4th place finish behind UKIP
Pay close attention to the two-minute mark of the BBC report. A pretty 20s something Labour Party canvasser tries to push a pamphlet on a dopey looking working class chic. The reaction of the women, caught on camera is hilariously embarrassing for Labour. But pretty much sums up the position they find themselves in.

In fairness, the BBC captures a somewhat embarrassing moment for Boris, as well.

Just waiting for the U.S. Demoncrat Party to adopt the red rose of the Euro proto communist parties as its symbol as well.
