Milliband is being criticized for running a bad campaign because UKIP is now taking Labour voters into its camp.

Perot pulled out of the campaign deliberately for a time in 1992 to tamp his vote totals down so he wouldn’t win. He was in to help Clinton.

Farage and UKIP are playing no such game. They are in it to win and might do that today beating all the other parties, not allowing Labour to win.

I was wrong not to be more clear in my post.I was referring to next year's election.And although I've never seen firm proof that Perot's *intention* was to help BillyBob that's exactly what he did...intentionally or unintentionally.

Again,thinking of *next year's* election Farage,IMO,will take far more votes from Cameron than from Milliband...giving Red Ed the win.BillyBob knew the same in '92....had Perot not run Bush The Elder very probably would have won.
