Oh dear. I think I might have just ruined Toby Young’s attempt at creating a pact between the Tories and UKIP.

Toby wrote a piece in the Spectator today called Unite The Right – let’s make a deal.

Bizarrely, Toby has called his attempt to persuade UKIP into a pact with the Tories CONUKIP.

Well I suppose it would be conning UKIP alright.

Because anyone with even a passing knowledge of electoral strategy would realise that an electoral pact between the Toris and UKIP would mean more Tory candidates winning with no UKIP candidates winning at all.

Anyway, the thing is, I loved Toby’s name for the project so much I’ve just bought the urlconukip.co.uk

Bit slow off the mark there Toby. I think you might have to change the name now.

Never mind – conukip.eu is still available.
