UKIP Split Rightwing Vote

It is quite funny to see the Conservatives trying to tear down the UK Independence Party who have been drawing away the Conservative voters.
Both on the right, the UKIP and Conservative Parties are scrapping over the same votes and all they are doing is splitting the same voters between them, they are not attracting voters across from the Labour Party who are more Pro-Europe then either UKIP or the Tories.
The effect is that the two right of centre parties damage each others chances while the Labour Party remains on the sidelines watching and waiting for 2015 and the General Election.
While the zinger from Kenneth Clarke that UKIP are made up of 'fruitcakes and loonies' is probably justified, long may there rise continue because while they will never be a threat to the main parties, they are damaging the Conservatives enough to reduce their chances of getting into power and that has to be a good thing.
