Essex responds to Farage’s UKIP campaign launch by voting Labour

Yesterday, Nigel Farage launched UKIP’s parliamentary campaign in Essex. Canvey, to be precise. It’s telling, perhaps, that he stayed away from the Kent seat he himself is trying to win (South Thanet).

But how did the people of Essex react to the purple-and-yellow messiah’s appearance on their own turf?

Well, in Harlow they reacted by electing a new Labour district councillor in a by-election to replace a UKIP councillor.

Nigel Farage visits Essex, and hours later he has lost a council seat to Labour. That looks to me like a very good omen.
