UKIP refuses pact with Conservatives

A Tory member’s plan to organize a pact for more parliamentary seats with the UK Independence Party has been foiled, after the UKIP firmly refused any deal with the Conservative Party, local media reported.
The Conservative party’s vice-chairman for parliamentary campaigning, Michael Fabricant said an electoral pact with UKIP would deliver 40 marginal seats to the Tories.
But UKIP leader Nigel Farage quickly responded dismissively saying that there would be “no deals with the Tories: it’s war”, British media reported.
Farage then highlighted and denounced British Prime Minister David Cameron’s previous comments about the UKIP being a racist party.
Fabricant told Cameron that the Tories could lose out in many close seats at the next general election, which is expected to take place on 7 May 2015, due to the loss of promising the British public an in-out referendum on the European Union (EU).
This comes after the controversy over children from different ethnic backgrounds being removed from British foster parents in Rotherham, Yorkshire because of their UKIP membership and possible racial hate. This occurred during the Rotherham by-election last week.
UKIP’s deputy leader Paul Nuttall said on the state-run BBC that any talks with the Tories would be difficult at the moment because of Cameron’s recent comments.
“David Cameron had retracted his comments on Saturday night, and then he retracted his retraction,” Nuttall said.
