Farage hints at group Tory MP defections to UKIP

The article is in this evening's Evening Standard in London, linked here, from which comes this quote:

"I'm not going to tell you they are on the verge of coming across," he said. "All I can tell you is that it's being discussed. I do know people in the Conservative Party - and I've spoken to some this morning - who are deeply depressed at the moment. Some of them have got to be asking themselves, 'What if a whole group of us went to Ukip?'"
Mr Farage's call to defectors comes amid mounting Tory tensions after Monday's record Commons rebellion by 81 MPs and demands for powers to be repatriated from Brussels, including reports that former leader Iain Duncan Smith threatened to quit the Cabinet.

Given the dreadful state of affairs across the EU and Britain's exposure to the full blast of the consequences due to the incompetence and subservience to the EU of the country's three main political parties, the one big question is why this has only now come into discussion!
