Commenting on Michael Gove’s claim that the Conservatives will not do a deal with UKIP, a Liberal Democrat spokesperson has said that the danger of a right-wing bloc remains.
The spokesperson said:
“It is clear that David Cameron and Ed Miliband won’t win this general election outright.
“Michael Gove knows full well that there is a very real danger that BLUKIP – a bloc of right wingers from UKIP, the Conservatives and the DUP could hold the balance of power.
“David Cameron has already called for UKIP supporters to come home to the Conservatives and his right wing backbenchers have been waiting for their moment to reclaim their party for years.
“The only thing stopping David Cameron listening to those in his party who want to do a deal with UKIP is a small number of Liberal Democrat candidates who will keep the Government in the centre and stop Nigel Farage and his friends forcing David Cameron to lurch to the right.
“The only way to get a stronger economy and a fairer society is to vote Liberal Democrat on May 7th.”
