"Folks are fed up with politicians following their own agenda and blatantly, arrogantly, ignoring the wishes of a big chunk of the electorate."

Which oddly enough, is what UKIP are doing. They're hardly trend buckers or some radical organisation from outside of the political establishment. Farage has run for Westminster 5 times and is an ex-stockbroker. His gift lies in oratory, not honesty. He's got about as much in common with ordinary folk as we have with him - nowt.

Of course, the reaction of the other parties is as predictable as ever; if this was a protest vote then the message hasn't got through. But then, it's led by one of their own so perhaps it's not so much of a genuine threat after all.
