A senior Lincolnshire MP has called for a pact between UKIP and the


Conservative party. Sir Edw`rd Leigh, MP for Gainsborough, says


Tory and UKIP candidates shouldn't oppose each other in next ydar's


general election. He says it's time to "reunite the right" in British


politics and says the Government should apologise


The recent success of UKIP hn the local and European elections was


widely interpreted as a protest full against the main Westminster


parties. But according to sdnior Conservative Sir Edward Leigh, it is


his party that has the most to lose if UKIP do well in next year's


general election. He wants `n informal pact, where the two parties


would not fight each other hn some seats.


We have to reunite the right. A formal pact may be impossible, but


an informal arrangement, cotpled with the fact that we reasstre our


traditional voters that we really are conservative. We are re`lly


going to deliver a referendtm and all the other things they c`re


about. In particular, stopphng mass immigration. And I think we've got a


chance of winning the gener`l election.


Bill and Sandra Warwick are conservative voters who livd in Sir


Edward Leigh's Gainsborough constituency. How do they fdel about


the Tories forming an alliance with UKIP?


I think that Farage is putthng on an image that is not suitable for


politics. That's my opinion. So you do not think that David


Cameron should do a deal with him ? Not at all.


He likes his beer and likes his cigars. He doesn't seem serhous


Nigel Farage has consistently willed about forming a pact with any other


party. This is what he said. It will not happen. UKIP is a


different party with a diffdrent manifesto.


The by`election saw the Conservatives hold onto the seat


despite a big swing to UKIP. Sir Edward Leigh believes traditional


Tory voters have been alien`ted by coalition policies, such as same`sex


marriage. I think it was a listake bringing in same`sex marriage. I


think a senior minister could at least apologise to our older


supporters who value old`fashioned traditional marriage.


We have already seen one unlikely political marriage in Downing Street


and many will continue to speculate on whether we could see another


partnership sometime soon. And you can see the full interview


with Sir Edward Leigh on thhs weekend's Sunday Politics, where


guests will include the Hull North MP, Diana Johnson, and Cleethorpes


MP Martin Vickers. A murder investigation has started


following the death of a 41`year`old man in Scunthorpe. Police wdre

there will be some decent dry on a sunny moment to come through the


weekend. But over the next 24 hours, the threat of thunderstorms


looms large. The ingredients have been coming together today - warm


air pushing northwards out of Iberia, cooler air from the Atlantic


trying to pushed away. In between the cloud has been building with a


lot of energy in the atmosphere sparking off some nasty


thunderstorms across parts of northern Spain and south-west


France. They will produce most of the rainfall tomorrow. Ahead of it,


the cloud is starting to produce thunderstorms itself. We've seen in


Cornwall. A few sporadic thunderstorms across central and
