Come dine with me?

Today's Independent reports that Rupert Murdoch courting UKIP leader, Nigel Farage or is it the other way around? In any case it seems that the two had dinner at the News Corp chief's London home on Tuesday, five days after Ukip pushed the Tories into third place.

Is this a sign that the Murdoch press is about to swing behind UKIP? Certainly Murdochs' twitter account indicates that he believes Farage is reflecting public opinion. We will have to see.
Murdoch is probably using the possibility of support for UKIP to lever more concessions from Conservative leaders. The threat is stronger than the execution.
