Market Rasen by-election: Tory -v- UKIP

The residents of Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, probably don't realise it but a great deal of attention will be paid to their by-election in a couple of weeks.

The Tories are resurgent in the polls with a projected 52% share of the vote were there a general election tomorrow.  If, that is, the only competition was the Labour Party and the Lib Dems.

On the 9th of October, residents of the Market Rasen area will elect a new district councillor for the Middle Rasen ward and there are only two candidates: a Tory and a UKIPper.

Stuart Wheeler has already threatened to cut his ties with the Tories over their eurofederalist stance, will voters do the same?
