Well if you are so offended by the link I suggest that you take the radical step of not clicking on it. I would like to think that we are all adult enough to make such choices for ourselves.
For the record I have very little time for Breitbart but I linked to it because it seemingly carries news of a fairly significant political development in Thurrock. A subject that strikes me as somewhat relevant for this thread.
I agree than reporting on political developments in Thurrock and I commend you on doing you. You're usually very fair, so I was surprised. I'm contesting using Breitbart as a credible source, through (it's often biaised towards UKIP/hard right). In that case, that wasn't an news article or a factual piece. It was an opinion piece by the local UKIP PPC. On those subjects, I would trust more the local and (hopefully) neutral press.
All newspapers uncritically reproduce press releases by political parties and corporations that they are friendly with. The only difference with Breitbart is that they do this for UKIP rather than for Conservative or Labour.
There seems to be more potential for Lan-Con Alliances now that UKIP are making headway. It's not a mainstream party conspiracy or them 'ganging up' on UKIP, it's because they prefer each other to UKIP there. In other areas, the opposite is true (Norfolk).
And coalitions locally are far more likely with UKIP making headway.
