UKIP top European Election with 27.5% of the vote and 24 MEPs.
UKIP Leader Nigel Farage hails historic day as Ukip takes votes off 'arrogant' Labour

Well the Ukip electoral earthquake seems to be under way and - despite the fact that I have been talking about it for so long - it has still taken the political class by surprise.

Part two comes on Sunday night when the European results come through. Fingers crossed for that.

But what has particularly delighted me today is that the clusters of elected councillors I was hoping for in particular local authority areas, have come through.

We have big representation in Thurrock, Castle Point, Basildon, Great Yarmouth, Great Grimsby, Rotherham and elsewhere besides.

This is a massive leap forward in the battle to break into Westminster constituencies in numbers in the general election next year.

"I believe we should be a democratic self-governing nation, and everyone that votes Ukip believes the same thing and we're going to acheive it. I'm sorry, but these three parties are hopelessly out of touch with the way the modern world is going." - Ukip Leader Nigel Farage
Comparing Putin to Hitler diminishes the horrific suffering of millions of people across mainland Europe

"The EU is the superpower trying to create its own empire, and what we have seen from Putin is not the creation of a “Greater Russia” but a country with its hackles up over the ever-creeping eastern border of the European Union," writes UKIP Leader Nigel Farage (The Independent).

I think it’s fair to say that Prince Charles and I don’t see eye to eye on much save for architecture. He, like me, prefers the more classical style of buildings rather than ones which look like vegetables or kitchen implements. And I also think his charity, The Prince’s Trust, is an excellent project which helps young people in real need at grass roots level.

"We are Threatening and Challenging the Establishment. They are very scared of what we could do to their vote on Thursday and they have clubbed together to hurl as much abuse at UKIP as they possibly can." -
UKIP Leader Nigel Farage, interviewed by Jeremy Paxman, Newsnight, May 19.

Many MEPs have a dirty little secret they don’t wish voters to know about - their frequent taxpayer funded junkets to exotic locations around the globe.

It is UKIP policy not to allow its MEPs to go on Delegation trips.

Most delegations in the European Parliament will go to such lengths to hide which MEPs took part in delegations that sometimes for meetings the list of MEP attendees is not present, but the people who they met are. For instance, this Delegation for the
Maghreb trip.

One of the few delegations which puts its MEP attendees in the public domain is the EU’s Delegation to the African, Caribbean and Pacific region (ACP). Minutes and attendees are listed in the EU Official journal. The ACP is a talking shop which has no legislative power – but it has great travel if you can get it.


"I don't care what you call us. You can call us right-wing, left-wing, you can call us small-minded, but do not call us a racist party. We are not a racist party."

Central London: UKIP Leader Nigel Farage's last stop on the Join the People's Army tour, May 7th.

Join the People's Army Tour: St. Ives, May 2nd

"It's us. It's the people vs the political class. Are you prepared to join our people's army that will topple the Establishment on May the 22nd?" - UKIP Leader Nigel Farage MEP
Europe's ruling on a financial transaction tax is a kick in the teeth to the City. It demonstrates Cameron's argument that the UK government can negotiate a better deal for British business from within the EU as a fraud and a farce, writes UKIP Leader Nigel Farage (Telegraph)

So the financial interests of the British people are kicked in the teeth by the European Court of Justice and still, David Cameron wants to keep us in for more EU rough treatment.

Even in European terms, the Financial Transaction Tax is a bad idea because it will help to drive money and expertise offshore to Switzerland and Hong Kong. The FTT is a legislative club (in both the cudgel and group sense) which the eleven EU states involved and the European Commission wish to beat the City of London over the head. It is estimated that it will cost the City 4.4 billion pounds.
A look at the immigration policies of the four main parties show that actually, Ukip’s policy is the most open towards non-white migration. For despite the howls of “racist” and now “Euracist” which are frequently thrown at our supporters and activitists, we are anti-uncontrolled immigration, writes UKIP Leader Nigel Farage.

As Ukip continues to rise up the polls, the political establishment is sinking to even greater depths to smear us. The latest attack comes in the form of Barbara Roche, the former Labour immigration minister, who is setting up a cross-party group aimed at calling Ukip’s election campaign and, by implication, everyone who supports it racist. It shows an astonishing lack of awareness of what voters are concerned about, in my opinion, and yet I am not surprised.

UKIP have overtaken Labour in voting intention for the forthcoming European elections

UKIP Leader Nigel Farage speaks in Gateshead, April 23, during the Join the People's Army campaign tour in the north.

"We're currently run by a bunch of college kids who've never done a days work in their lives... I'm leading a party made up of real people who've done real jobs. We are not going to be cowed by political correctness... we are unashamedly patriotic, proud to be who we are as a nation, sick to death of the career political class who've sold this country out to Brussels and we want our country back" - Nigel Farage MEP.
I sometimes wonder if the PM actually believes in anything at all, apart from furthering his own career, writes UKIP Leader Nigel Farage in today's Daily Express.

What a brilliant poll it was over the weekend showing that 70 per cent of Express readers are intending to vote Ukip in the European elections.

I know from the response this column gets that the overwhelming majority of you share the concerns that I have been raising for years - whether about uncontrolled immigration, the downgrading of Christianity in our national life, the mad dash to heavily-subsidised windfarms, the profligate spending of the State, the lack of the public being allowed to have their say on EU member ship and much else besides.


UKIP's Election Broadcast 2014

"We want our country back. We believe the best people to govern Britain are the British people themselves. And I'm urging you, on May the 22nd, join our people's army and cause an earthquake in British politics."
- UKIP Leader Nigel Farage MEP.

By Roger Helmer MEP

I had a disappointment this morning (April 22nd).  I was on LBC Radio, up against Labour MP Mike Gapes.  I had hoped that the Labour Party had grown up a bit, and stopped shouting “Yah Boo Racist!” at anyone who dared to mention immigration.  But they haven’t - or at least Mr. Gapes hasn’t.  There he was, criticising UKIP’s stunning new billboard campaign as “racist”.  Please look at the ad above and tell me which racial minority is being targeted or denigrated by this ad?
"To suggest, as Nick Clegg does, that in order to avoid "isolation" a major country like the UK has to out-source its governance to undemocratic and unaccountable foreign institutions, is an insult to the British people." - UKIP MEP Roger Helmer.

The pro-Brussels camp seems to have two main arguments for EU membership.  In the recent Farage/Clegg debates, Clegg pushed them relentlessly.  Outside the EU, we shall lose jobs, and influence, he claimed.  We shall be "isolated and marginalised".
The paper once known as 'The Thunderer' has become 'The Blunderer'. The Times has become like the News of The World.
"It's a fixed monthly allowance given to all MEPs and no expenses are claimed" - Nigel Farage

Press Release
The Times, once a respected newspaper has helped trash its own reputation with a politically motivated smear campaign on UKIP.

Over the last few months it has run multiple front page stories making many unproven allegations against UKIP and Nigel Farage.
