• The local election results of 2nd May show that the English people have cleary understood the extent to which the EU adversely affects their lives.
People understand that membership of the EU means that we cannot tackle issues such as mass uncontrolled immigration. They accordingly voted for UKIP in large numbers. UKIP is the only Party that wants Britain to leave the European Union and restore democratic sovereign government to the UK.
UKIP has finanlly broken the first-past-the-post barrier which has prevented any new political party breaking into domestic politics since the Labour Party did it in the early 20th century. When UKIP was set up in 1993 it was done on the basis that it would become a force in national politics. Despite our spectacular successes in the European elections these results prove that we can win in domestic elections.
We now stand poised to win seats in the General Election of 2015. Every new vote that UKIP wins, and every new seat we win, brings the closer when Britain will leave the European Union.
