Conservative Party seem to always be out in force
IF there is any hope for the Conservatives in Rochester it is their mobilisation of troops on the ground.
That's not the view of Grant Shapps but the opinion of a senior member of UKIP.
Leaked emails seen by TBG last night suggested that whilst Tories are coming from all over the place with MPs ordered to attend three time and Ministers on five occasions, UKIP are struggling in numbers.
Our latest leaked email showed that only SIX leading Kippers turned out last weekend and when you consider that one of those was the candidate (Mark Reckless), one an M.E.P. (Janice Atkinson) and a third was their P.P.C. from Eastbourne, it wasn't exactly good stuff.
TBG understands this weekend will be "different" though, according to sources.
Fellow South East M.E.P. Ray Finch who was last weekend spotted taking it easy at his Bedhampton home has been ordered on to the front line and a contingent of up to fifty are expected from the West Country along with Leader Nigel Farage.
One relieved 'Kipper last night told TBG - "Its about time too!".

TORY EUROSCEPTICS received a major boost yesterday when it was revealed that the front page of the Liberal Democrats' 2015 Manifesto was sensationally leaked, TBG can reveal.
The front page of the manifesto was snapped as Nick Clegg's Director of Strategy Ryan Coetzee left the Deputy PM's Office.
Yet instead of having a Red Line opposed to David Cameron's pledge of an EU Referendum in 2017, Nick Clegg's wish list only includes:
- Balancing the books by 2018
- Cutting income tax by £400 for low earners
- Equal waiting times for mental health and physical health
- And to protect Nursery, Schools, and College spending
TBG thinks interesting times lay ahead.
THE CONSERVATIVES have already spent over £100,000 on the open primary but UKIP seem to be already on course for a landslide in the Rochester and Strood by-election, TBG can reveal.
Internal UKIP documents leaked to TBG show that despite Eastbourne P.P.C. Nigel Jones issuing a "cry to arms" calling upon members and supporters to "drop whatever you are doing and save our country". TBG can exclusively reveal that an apparently unpleasant avalanche of abuse from Mark Reckless' former party colleagues has led to enormous polling returns for Nigel Farage's party, including a whopping 94% approval rating in the village of Grain.
One M.E.P. Even told TBG earlier - "This is BETTER than Clacton"prompting Ukip HQ to issue a warning against complacency. David Cameron has already promised to throw the kitchen sink at us in this campaign and we know there are some very dirty dishes in the Tory sink."

The news that Michael McManus has made it on to the final open primary shortlist for the Conservatives nomination in Havant due to be decided on Saturday is a huge step forward.
Michael is highly intelligent and very sincere too as I saw when I chatted at length with him in Havant last Friday.
In my opinion, Michael would without doubt be a superb asset to drive forward the type of policies David Cameron and George Osborne advocate for a better Britain.
The fact that Michael also ran the 2004 campaign for a referendum on the EU Constitution speaks volumes because it shows that in Michael McManus the Conservatives would have the ideal person with the ideal oratorical skills to ultimately advocate the very policy that so many die hard Conservatives have been fighting in favour of for so long which is an in or out EU Referendum once and for all.
The final four candidates for the 2015 Conservatives nomination in Havant have been announced.
They are Deputy Leader of Hertfordshire County Council Chris Hayward, Lawyer and Entrepreneur Alan Mak, former John Major and Margaret Thatcher speech writer Michael McManus, and 2010 Brighton Pavilion candidate Charlotte Vere.
An open primary to decide the winner will be held at 2.00pm on Saturday at Oaklands School in Waterlooville.

IT MAY NOT be the greatest of stories but given the expenses angle The Blue Guerilla can reveal that one of the candidates now on the long list to be the next Conservative Candidate in Havant is one Alan Mak.
According to Conservative Home, Mak is - "A lawyer by training, an entrepreneur and investor and his roles include serving as a Non-Executive Board Member for Havas UK, a digital services and advertising firm. He is also a judge and mentor for Wayra UnLtd, which advises and trains technology companies. He sits on the Management Committee of the Enterprise Forum, which seeks to link businesses in to Conservative Party policy development."
TBG has however since learned that Mak has already been embroiled in an expenses scandal. According to sources, Mak was accused of filing a false invoice and subsequently received a vote of no confidence from Cambridge Union when he was Ents Officer & was forced to pull out of a presidential campaign amid claims of "financial misconduct".
Would this be the first time someone becoming an MP has been allegedly caught fiddling expenses BEFORE they've got to Westminster?
Or perhaps he'd fit right in?
The other candidates are Cllr Antonia Cox. Suella Fernandes, Sian Flynn, Mark Fox, Cllr Chris Hayward, Sarah Heald, Sarah Macken, Michael McManus, Luke Parker, Laura Trott, and Charlotte Vere.
