Sarah Palin Tory the Conservative's choice in UK's hot by-election

She's pro-home schooling, pro-preservation of English culture, against increasing immigration, and leery of government hand-outs

From Eric Dondero: 

She's being hailed by the British press as the UK's version of Sarah Palin. From the Daily Mirror, "Why Maria Hutchings is the Tories' Sarah Palin - and that's not a good thing":

The Conservative candidate in the Eastleigh by-election won't woo the middle ground.   
Right wing American governor Sarah Palin is famous for plain speaking. Maria Hutchings also doesn't like to pull her punches. 
Or if she does, it's when she's pulling them into the midriff of vulnerable asylum seekers: "I don't care about refugees," she once said. Sarah Palin styles herself a "hockey mom". Hutchings is a "cardio-respiratory surgeon's mum" - or she'd like to be.
From her website:
“I feel hugely privileged to be representing The Conservative Party in one of the most beautiful constituencies in the country. And I am determined to work hard with my team and our communities to keep it that way." 
"We must preserve the identity of Eastleigh town and the villages that make up our constituency.
And interestingly:
 Maria is the daughter of John, who served in the 1st Battalion, The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers and Vicky, who worked in a clothing factory. She has a strong sense of duty and a commitment to supporting the armed forces... 
Hutchings is running in a "genteel" middle class suburb of Eastleigh for a key MP spot that British observers see as a harbinger for upcoming national elections. The election is this Friday.
