MORE big name politicans have descended on Eastleigh today as by-election fever continues to grip the town.

Former Liberal Democrat leader Lord Paddy Ashdown, Labour's shadow chancellor Ed Balls and shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper were in the railway town in a bid to boost the prospects of their candidates.

Lord Ashdown joined Lib Dem hopeful Mike Thornton for a walk about in Eastleigh town centre at lunch time while Ed Balls accompanied their candidate John O'Farrell during a visit to Hendy Motor Group on Leigh Road.

Yvette Cooper later helped unveil a new Labour poster for the by-election outside their Leigh Road campaign office.

Meanwhile Hampshire MEP Marta Andreasen joined the Conservative Party campaign in Eastleigh for the first time since joining the Party from UKIP.

The South East of England representative visited Botley with Tory by-election hopeful candidate Maria Hutchings.

It's funny how the lib-dems don't mention that having an amnesty for all illegal immigrants is one of their key policies.

MASS UNCONTROLLED EU immigration is a wonderful way to raise rental prices so it brings up the cost of living for poorest families and make rich landlords even richer.

Vote UKIP if you think this is wrong.

Give UKIP a chance. This is only a by-election, lets get a UKIP MP in parliament and see what they are made of. If you don't like what they do, vote for someone different in 2015. We have had Lib/Lab/Con for long enough to know what a mess they can make of this Country. Lets try someone new. Make history Eastleigh, and vote in the first ever UKIP member of Parliament.

Until we exit the EU it does not matter what Party is in Number 10. Our laws are made in Brussels, and we have no control over our borders. Lib/Lab/Con are all pro EU. That is why we need to vote UKIP at every available opportunity.

I have always not only opposed the EU but was against Tory Ted Heath joining its mother by signing the treaty in Paris. When somebody from British delegation on the TV said ‘we have achieved today what Hitler and Napoleon failed to do’ or words to that effect. (Probably copy of that may still be lying around in BBC or ITV’s archives).

Hardly surprising when cabinet papers got released few years ago it became clear that he’d instructed the officials to stay quite on the real purpose, which was political union. In other words Super State of Europe, and goodbye to our sovereignty.

It was because of that and economic reasons why old Labour’s Bryan Gould, Tony Benn and Arthur Scargill continued opposing the EU.

But will I support Ukip because their clever people with the help of free but highly biased media have recently hijacked the anti EU slogans for their own agenda?
Answer is: NO NO NO.

While leadership of Ukip, which is basically a one man band (according to those who joined it but then left after finding what this organisation is really like inside) may be clever in picking words carefully so that the party's dark side stays secret, even their candidate in Eastleigh could not hide the fact that Ukip is all about xenophobia and has more than its share of xenophobes.

Party has been exposed for having close links with Le Pen and her party in France who are notorious for their fascistic views.

Many comments by Ukip supporters on this site only confirm why their party feels comfortable while associating with Le Pen and her National Front of France.

For those who are genuinely opposed to the EU due to economic and sovereignty reasons there is plenty of choice available within both right and left of British politics.

In my view (obviously others may have different) people should avoid both pro EU Lib-Dems and supposedly anti EU Ukip. Both of them have common denominators; They play on emotions, say one thing while planning to do the opposite, keep on changing slogans to suit the media created hysteria and avoid practising what is preached.

Considering on Ch4 last night UKIP candidate could not answer the even size of population in Romania and was exposed for issuing leaflets confirming exact figures in millions on how may Romanians will migrate to UK, only proves they are exceptionally good at making up scare stories.

UKIP is just the Tories by another name - just listen to Maria Hutchings. Lib Dems well it is riddled with scandal.

At least Labour, Balls and Miliband have an economics degree unlike poor old Osborne who keeps getting it wrong.

People should know this before they vote.

A new fight over NHS privatisation has just begun. Jeremy Hunt is trying to use new powers, hidden within last year's controversial NHS laws, to force local GPs to privatise more health services. This is one of the things we were afraid might happen - and now our worst fears are being confirmed. We need to do all we can to stop it.

Jeremy Hunt's new privatisation plot is contained within "NHS competition regulations". Usually these kinds of rules get quickly rubber-stamped by Parliament. This time, we need to get MPs and Lords to stand up to Hunt and block his plans.

Petition below for those who want to save the NHS.

So thanks to thirteen years of New labour under very pro EU; Blair and Brown and now Europhile Clegg we are very much little Britain controlled by the European political elite in Brussels & Strasbourg. If you not only want to make England but Britain great again then cut us free from this dead man walking; the failed European Union. Let's rediscover our pride in our once great nation and put the great back into Britain by using the business language of the world ENGLISH to trade with everyone; without the red tape and heavy restrictions our continued membership of this union of losers. Yes I am proud to be English and proud to be British and only our independence from the EU can set us free... and for me that freedom and indepence is priceless; it is the cosy pro EU folk who want to keep us little England, in fact they don't want us to be English, Welsh, Scots or Irish or Brits even they want us all to be Europeans...There is nothing little about Norway or Switzerland who are both very rich nations enjoying their freedom of being in Europe and trading with the world , without being members of the EU club.” Its is time to give this cosy political London elite club a kick up the backside...for the sake of the nation good people of Eastleigh vote for Diane James and the UK Independence Party on Thursday. If so for generations to come people will remeber Eastleigh as the place that gave the nation hope for the future and cut us free from an economic disaster; the EU failed experiment and therefore the mass uncontrolled imigration that Blair & Brown government gave us.

Balls and Miliband have an economics degree? They must be mickey mouse degrees from a poly, either that or they paid someone to take their exams and do their coursework for them.

They borrowed massively to try and put hundreds of thousands of people into useless jobs in order to get the unemployment figures down. We are all paying for their excesses now.

The NHS needs to made more efficient by the way. Just one example is procurement - why do we have teams of buyers in each hospital ordering piddly amounts of drugs, equipment and consumables that you pay retail prices for when you can have regional distribution warehouses that are controlled by a central procurement agency which will have enormous buying power to demand wholesale prices.

It will also reduce administration costs.

Many successive governments have failed to do this and yet it is the first thing that should be put into place in order in order increase efficiency in the NHS so that money could be put into hiring more nurses and cleaners in our dirty, death riddled hospitals.

Britain has been badly governed over the last 30 years by a majority of MP's whose only interest has been 'what's in it for me'.They have raided our pension funds,built up huge debts, fiddled their expenses, at the same time been taxing us more and more.
Cash for questions, lying, and cover up after cover up, vote for an independent and tell the main parties we had enough of them....my main concern that it might be too late, as our debt is so huge.

This by-election should be about Lib-Dem lies told in their last election, and hypocrisy of their candidate promising to save green spaces but supporting covering those with concrete if these are near Botley.

It should be about false promises of Osborne, who shouted from roof top pretending to be the champion who will save triple A ratings and now those have gone into smoke the hypocrite posh boy has started to say it is good for Britain.

It should be vote against ConDem Coalition dictating cuts to local councils.

Most important of all people should reject Coalition partners because they are butchering our NHS.

It was because of that and economic reasons why old Labour’s Bryan Gould, Tony Benn and Arthur Scargill continued opposing the EU.

But will I support Ukip because their clever people with the help of free but highly biased media have recently hijacked the anti EU slogans for their own agenda?
Answer is: NO NO NO.

While leadership of Ukip, which is basically a one man band (according to those who joined it but then left after finding what this organisation is really like inside) may be clever in picking words carefully so that the party's dark side stays secret, even their candidate in Eastleigh could not hide the fact that Ukip is all about xenophobia and has more than its share of xenophobes.

Party has been exposed for having close links with Le Pen and her party in France who are notorious for their fascistic views.

Many comments by Ukip supporters on this site only confirm why their party feels comfortable while associating with Le Pen and her National Front of France.

For those who are genuinely opposed to the EU due to economic and sovereignty reasons there is plenty of choice available within both right and left of British politics.

In my view (obviously others may have different) people should avoid both pro EU Lib-Dems and supposedly anti EU Ukip. Both of them have common denominators; They play on emotions, say one thing while planning to do the opposite, keep on changing slogans to suit the media created hysteria and avoid practising what is preached.

Considering on Ch4 last night UKIP candidate could not answer the even size of population in Romania and was exposed for issuing leaflets confirming exact figures in millions on how may Romanians will migrate to UK, only proves they are exceptionally good at making up scare stories.
Mis read your post there for a second and thought you were defecting to UKIP! I had to re read it. (old eyes)

I will vote Labour for the very first time next election. I genuinely think Miliband and Balls are the only ones with any merit to govern.

I have also done a lot of research on Tory party claims and found them to be quite misleading and untrue.

Labour are no longer a left wing party but more centralist and the right wing parties have moved more to the right.

In any case whoever wins it is only until 2015.

Labour would walk the next election if they had a fair immigration policy.

They need to come up with something to re negotiate with the EU to be able to somehow limit numbers by only accepting essential employees only and to have a domestic policy whereby employers give preference to nationals over immigrants.

People mustn't pick on immigrants because they are doing the best that they can for themselves and it is the government's fault if there is an open border policy.

Mind you after Osborne has finished not even the immigrants will want to come here lol!

A new fight over NHS privatisation has just begun. Jeremy Hunt is trying to use new powers, hidden within last year's controversial NHS laws, to force local GPs to privatise more health services. This is one of the things we were afraid might happen - and now our worst fears are being confirmed. We need to do all we can to stop it.

Jeremy Hunt's new privatisation plot is contained within "NHS competition regulations". Usually these kinds of rules get quickly rubber-stamped by Parliament. This time, we need to get MPs and Lords to stand up to Hunt and block his plans.

Balls and Miliband have an economics degree? They must be mickey mouse degrees from a poly, either that or they paid someone to take their exams and do their coursework for them.

They borrowed massively to try and put hundreds of thousands of people into useless jobs in order to get the unemployment figures down. We are all paying for their excesses now.

The NHS needs to made more efficient by the way. Just one example is procurement - why do we have teams of buyers in each hospital ordering piddly amounts of drugs, equipment and consumables that you pay retail prices for when you can have regional distribution warehouses that are controlled by a central procurement agency which will have enormous buying power to demand wholesale prices.

It will also reduce administration costs.

Many successive governments have failed to do this and yet it is the first thing that should be put into place in order in order increase efficiency in the NHS so that money could be put into hiring more nurses and cleaners in our dirty, death riddled hospitals.
No you are forgetting the bankers got us and the rest of the world into a depression by following the Neo Liberal economics from the 1920s that brought about that depression and the culprits were the banks then too,

It is a school of economics that is a complete failure. Markets do not regulate themsleves - banks or horse meat or BSE!!!

Thatcher and the idiot Reagan and his astrologer decided to resurrect Neo Liberalism economics and Adam Smiths 'invisible hand' self correcting markets. The invisible hand that is making us all poorer by devaluing our currency.


Osborne with his 2:1 history degree (not even a 1st with the best education money could buy) just keeps following the same old dogma and is way out of his depth.

I am afraid Miliband and Balls are the best qualified applicants for the job. Labour are no longer a left wing party but more central these days. I have always gone with Tory in the past but research I have done has shown them to be Con Men pardon the pun.

So Labour and the Lib Dems are deploying their big guns. Both parties have recently shown their contempt for democracy by denying the people of this country a say on their future. How many will still vote for them in the face of this?

Additionally, the Lib Dems have had a fit of pique and denied the us the equalisation of constituency boundaries. What a vindictive party they are.

We must stop voting tribally and start voting for what's right. Search your heart to see what that is.

Labour are a tax and spend party who are stifling the private sector from crreating jobs and prosperity.

Conversation in the pub tonight.

My mate says, "You know, if we were in Eastleigh I'd vote UKIP."

I ask, "Why?"

"Well," he says, "I don't have the first idea about politics, but they've got it right, haven't they?"

So I ask, "What have they got right?"

"Dunno really."

Exactly.

Eastleigh is full of labotomised voters... they will re-elect the Lib-Dems... UKIP will succeed in handing the next election to the labour party and hence their concerns about immigration are irrelevant. They would be better to join the Tories and forge policy from there. This is so obvious its hilarious, but this of course underlines why politicians are soooooo stoooopid.

Actually, my previous posts was not suggesting you vote TUSC, unless you are stupid, it was merely an example.

Ask Peter for advice and you'll be voting elsewhere! According to Peter's version of TUSC, none of their representatives will claim expenses, so any TUSC MP will travel to London on a minimum wage for free and will suffer the costs themselves, they'll have an office with a phone line with no expenses, they may even have a Secretary FREE of ANY expenses! Amasing you say? Well, Peter has stated this himself!

Balls and Miliband have an economics degree? They must be mickey mouse degrees from a poly, either that or they paid someone to take their exams and do their coursework for them.

They borrowed massively to try and put hundreds of thousands of people into useless jobs in order to get the unemployment figures down. We are all paying for their excesses now.

The NHS needs to made more efficient by the way. Just one example is procurement - why do we have teams of buyers in each hospital ordering piddly amounts of drugs, equipment and consumables that you pay retail prices for when you can have regional distribution warehouses that are controlled by a central procurement agency which will have enormous buying power to demand wholesale prices.

It will also reduce administration costs.

Many successive governments have failed to do this and yet it is the first thing that should be put into place in order in order increase efficiency in the NHS so that money could be put into hiring more nurses and cleaners in our dirty, death riddled hospitals.
No you are forgetting the bankers got us and the rest of the world into a depression by following the Neo Liberal economics from the 1920s that brought about that depression and the culprits were the banks then too,

If so for generations to come people will remeber Eastleigh as the place that gave the nation hope for the future and cut us free from an economic disaster; the EU failed experiment and therefore the mass uncontrolled imigration that Blair & Brown government gave us.
So that's the best thing for Britain is it? A party that is solely based about drawing lines in the sand and deciding "them" and "us".

UKIP have only one policy effectively - the give away is the name - and that policy is effectively making enemies - saying you are either with us or against us.

I'm proud to British too - incredibly so - and I'm fairly sure being British isn't about being divisive in such an extreme way.

What about people born here, who are just as proud to be British, but will obviously feel they will need to take sides? What about those brave men who have fought for this country, but have ties elsewhere?

Like it or not, UKIP, by it's very nature, will be divisive. Nothing will change that fact because they are a single issue party - and that policy is very much division of people - them and us, choose sides. I'm fairly sure our forefathers didn't fight and die to put up such barriers with other countries or other people though.

Look, we know things aren't working. They are a mess in parts. Personally I think we need to look at our whole position within the EU. Either way something needs to change. But the best way to change that isn't a single party, with a nothing else matters vision of division. Many countries currently see Britain as the epitome of decency. Britain won't look decent with lines in the sand.

Don't pretend the Lib Dems have some plan for a super Europe. It's rude and offensive. The Lib Dems want a strong Britain, one that's proud and does the right thing. The Lib Dems are here for the common man and woman. So if they think that the EU policies just aren't suiting us, they'll look at their own policies and change accordingly.

Don't pretend the Lib Dems are part of some cosy London elite either. They aren't. The best they have had in years in a minor part of a coalition government. So that means they have to effectively feed off the political scraps. So whilst the Tories are fighting tooth and tail for tax breaks for their rich friends, or to keep unscrupulous newspaper owners printing anything they want and to hell with the people, then it's the Lib Dems who are fighting for tax breaks for those working hard but underpaid, and also fighting for phone hacking victims to be heard.

But, being such a weaker partner, it means the Lib Dems can't always get what they want for the common man. They are called concessions and they are the reality of being a much lesser partner in a coalition.

The Lib Dems have never had power like the Tories or Labour. Labour and the Tories are the ones who've been able to make majority decisions. They are the ones, with their self interests, who have created this mess that the UK is in. The mess which the Lib Dems try their best to put right. The Tories have certainly done their own fair share of giving away our rights to Europe.

I think we'd all agree that, hand on heart, that this country wouldn't be in this self serving mess if the Lib Dems had had a chance at sole power.

That doesn't happen though because spin normally beats decency. Not in Eastleigh though. Normally it's a bastion of decency in this green and pleasant land of ours. Here's hoping that decency wins again tomorrow, but my goodness the dark forces of spin are out in numbers to try and stop that!

They aren't. The best they have had in years in a minor part of a coalition government. So that means they have to effectively feed off the political scraps. So whilst the Tories are fighting tooth and tail for tax breaks for their rich friends, or to keep unscrupulous newspaper owners printing anything they want and to hell with the people, then it's the Lib Dems who are fighting for tax breaks for those working hard but underpaid, and also fighting for phone hacking victims to be heard. But, being such a weaker partner, it means the Lib Dems can't always get what they want for the common man. They are called concessions and they are the reality of being a much lesser partner in a coalition. The Lib Dems have never had power like the Tories or Labour. Labour and the Tories are the ones who've been able to make majority decisions. They are the ones, with their self interests, who have created this mess that the UK is in. The mess which the Lib Dems try their best to put right. The Tories have certainly done their own fair share of giving away our rights to Europe. I think we'd all agree that, hand on heart, that this country wouldn't be in this self serving mess if the Lib Dems had had a chance at sole power. That doesn't happen though because spin normally beats decency. Not in Eastleigh though. Normally it's a bastion of decency in this green and pleasant land of ours. Here's hoping that decency wins again tomorrow, but my goodness the dark forces of spin are out in numbers to try and stop that! Jack Herer

It's also funny how all the UKIP supporters I have tried to engage in conversation either online or in Eastleigh town centre always try to brush over their party's links with Marine Le Pen's Front National. Odd that a party espousing UK independence are bedfellows with French fascists...

*******I'm sorry BUT I have voted for Cons & Liebour in the past 2 decades & seeing what I've seen in the news recently I will be voting for no other then UKIP!
1) "Immigration" Cons & liebours way to deal with it is by cutting the Tsunami of them coming in...End of story book closed...Err NOT quite! cutting immigration to tens of thousands is NOT been responsible in any form! immigration should be stopped outright! not reduced? & to assure the public money should be invested to find the illegal's then deport them no questions asked! WHY would the government running one of the most amazingly financially sound countries in the world let illegal murderers and rapists roam their streets?......with immigration I can accept a reducement in the mid 90's but NOT now it's simply gone way too far! & the ONLY party that wants to address this direct is the UKIP! no other party seems to want to be responsible anymore? & whilst the cons & liebours mp's will stand up and state "UKIP is a new party with no experience in running a country" Well i might add this maybe true! BUT let's take a look at the main parties that have had decades of experience & lets look at what they have done with the UK? i rest my case......i would rather offer the chance to a party that has the hunger to do something then a party that has become ignorant on tax & greed..
2) EU/Human rights fiasco, Cons & Liebour want in it's that simple! MP's tell us we need to be in the EU for trade?? REALLY! Well considering its costing the Tax payer over £3 Billion per year for the membership I struggle to see how this relationship gives us much of an advantage when before we start we are Billions in debt to the EU?? Then there is the Human Rights fiasco! COME ON! "Abu Hamza" gets all his rent paid for all his benefits and shouldn't be here & yet the Human Rights bill can be so easily misused by people who shouldn't be in the UK to start with? then there is the foreign murderers who get UK citizenship due to been worried about going back to their country? where is the justice in that? Haven't we all heard enough about immigration and the scandals that surround it? a mother and father from Africa turn up on UK's door with their 8 kids get two council houses next to one another and a people carrier as well as almost £35k in benefits a year yet Joe Blogs who's worked all his life put tens of thousands into the tax kitty gets almost nothing or shown the big finger from the DHSS when he loses his job...? & this is justice???

At least Labour, Balls and Miliband have an economics degree unlike poor old Osborne who keeps getting it wrong.

People should know this before they vote.

A new fight over NHS privatisation has just begun. Jeremy Hunt is trying to use new powers, hidden within last year's controversial NHS laws, to force local GPs to privatise more health services. This is one of the things we were afraid might happen - and now our worst fears are being confirmed. We need to do all we can to stop it.

Jeremy Hunt's new privatisation plot is contained within "NHS competition regulations". Usually these kinds of rules get quickly rubber-stamped by Parliament. This time, we need to get MPs and Lords to stand up to Hunt and block his plans.

Petition below for those who want to save the NHS.

Given the rise of fascism in Greece, where people have started physically attacking migrants in the street I find the rise of anti-migrant sentiments in Eastleigh alarming. People talk a lot about this influx of foreign nationals but I wonder how many who are intending to vote UKIP to 'send a message' have actually had any genuine, personal experience of suffering as a result of immigration.
It's easy to blame outsiders for all our troubles and to think that turning against them will solve our economic and other difficulties but it's not true and can have catastrophic consequences, as seen in European 20th century history.

IT'S FINALLY POLLING DAY IN THE EASTLEIGH BY-ELECTION

Updated 11:06am Thursday 28th February 2013

10:23am

THE FLUORIDE PROTEST MARCH IS UNDERWAY AND ORGANSIERS ARE ANTICIPATING AS MANY AS 200 PEOPLE TAKING TO THE STREETS OF EASTLEIGH...

10:18am.

Just when you thought the protest marches were over, members of Hampshire Against Fluoridation are currently gathering in Eastleigh to make their voices heard.

They are planning a slow procession through the town to the Masonic Hall in Cranbury Road where voting will be taking place.

Their morning of action comes just weeks after health bosses admitted for the first time they don't expect fluoridation to be in place until 2014 - five years after it was given the green light.

The scheme, aimed at improving dental health, would cover parts of Southampton, Eastleigh, Totton, Netley and Rownhams.

Campaigners say the Strategic Health Authority (SHA) should now "give up" on the delayed project, saying it is "morally and ethically" wrong to fluoridate water while questions remain over its impact.

ANTI-FLUORIDATION MEETING – 28TH FEB 2013.

Posted by tst on February 27, 2013.

Tomorrow there will be people meeting outside One Community near Leigh Road in Eastleigh dressed in fancy dress and anti-fluoride placards for a min-march across the park to outside the Masonic Hall.

Time: Meet 09:30 am.

Place: One Community, 16 Romsey Road, Eastleigh, SO50 9AL.

March cross the park towards the Masonic Hall.

We expect that there will be a lot of media there due to the Eastleigh by-election. Please come.

The contact person who is pulling it together is Roberta Beer – 07940 525707 or me on 07794 382673
Feedback from the Eastleigh Election Meeting last night when Roberta asked the question of the candidates is that:

· LIB DEM WOULD RUN A REFERENDUM ON THE ISSUE.

· LABOUR WOULD 'LOOK IN TO IT'.

· UKIP WOULD 'LOOK IN TO IT'.

· CONSERVATIVE WAS NOT PRESENT (AGAIN).

See you there. Please bring along all the friends/relations/ac
complices you can!

John Spottiswoode.
