UKIP'S CANDIDATE in Havant, John Perry, has exclusively told TBG that he isn't bothered who he is up against in 2015.
In a sensational interview with roving reporter Geoff Brooking, the first since the plantgate scandal, Perry says that people should vote "from their heart".
"If their heart says Labour they should vote Labour but if their heart says UKIP then they should vote UKIP."
Perry also scorned both Labour and the Conservatives telling TBG that - "It was Labour who started the privatisation of the NHS but its the Conservatives who have increased the deficit."
"Whether they are local or not the fact that so many people have applied shows that some people think its a safe seat."
TBG thinks different and as reported earlier, privately, Havant Tories fear UKIP and one member even went so far as to tell TBG that, "If they were not scared of UKIP they wouldn't be holding the primary in the first place."
HOT on the heels of Cameron's speech to the Tory faithful in Birmingham it seems as though its gone down like a lead balloon with the bookies.
Whilst CF'ers like a former CF National Deputy Chairman praising it as "his best speech as Prime Minister" others were far from impressed.
TBG's own Geoff Brooking has been saying all week that conference hasn't been entirely successful and the bookies agree.
Ladbrokes last night sensationally made Red Ed the odds on favourite to be PM after the General Election.
Brookers is quoted in letters to the Portsmouth News and Daily Express reminding the PM that, "Two-thirds of people affected by the proposed 'benefits freeze' are actually either part time workers or self-employed strivers on a low income who get small amounts of help with housing benefit and tax credits".
Nevertheless, even with recent high profile defections to UKIP and polls pointing to a Labour victory in 2015, the Tories seem to be bouncing. One Tory commented in regard to UKIP defectors - "It's actually really nice not having those kind of people here at Conference."
So, in his "rousing speech" to the Conservatives Conference in Birmingham "David Cameron pledges to reward Britain's workers" with a "Tax Cuts Boost for 30 Million" despite the fact that the spending plans for all of this has created the most enormous of political black holes that bookies now even make Ed Miliband odds on to be Prime Minister and as a former odds compiler that is not a good sign.
Yet what Mr. Cameron forgot all about was the six million strivers that he so loved until recently.
The six million who are either part-time workers because of family commitments or in my case, self employed people who often forgo minimum wage nonsense to stay in business.
For those on either tax credits or low income housing benefit it's just a freeze.
Ed Miliband may have forgot the deficit but to forget the very people who put you in office in the first place is just as bad.
Which is why my take on it is "could do better!"

TBG can today exclusively reveal that the man or woman who will replace David Willetts as the Conservatives candidate for Havant will be chosen by an Open Primary on October 25th.
Privately, it's believed that a number of Tory insiders are worried about the threat posed by UKIP's John Perry.
As reported on TBG, a nominations form cock-up cost UKIP up to four councillors in May's local elections.
Almost 100 people applied for the Havant nomination and this will be brought down to four by the time the open primary is held.
Whatever the outcome Havant will have its first new MP since 1992.

|CF National Exec' - Chair' Alexandra Paterson center in black|
Shapps sensationally hailed the new CF National Executive as, "The perfect formula for winning the 2015 election" in what is thought to be a strong show of support and big boost for new National Chairman Alexandra Paterson.
There has been a strong showing by the Tory Youth wing who are in buoyant mood as of late after many successful campaign trips known as 'RoadTrip2015', which buses activists up an down the country to campaign for local MP's and candidates, with hundreds in attendance on every occasion.
