The reason Ukip is now polling a consistent average in by-elections since May (23.6%) is admittedly a fascinating phenomenon... Those in the metropolitan élite bubble, who graze on sun-dried tomatoes, pasta and chardonnay are struggling with this. Why won't this beastly party of amateurs go away? It's now beyond a joke... People are turning to Ukip because no one else seems to understand the frustration ordinary working folk are feeling.
