UKIP Come 2nd Nationally and Advance to 3rd in Yorkshire!

Well it was a very good night for UKIP, beating Labour into 3rd place and picking up new MEPs in Wales and the West Midlands.

More closer to home, Godfrey Bloom retained his seat in Yorkshire coming 3rd and UKIP wasn't that far away from taking a second seat in Yorkshire.

Congratulations to the UKIP national, regional and local teams in rallying such good support and taking one further step towards UK Independence.

Now the long hard work starts towards the local and general elections!

What a Response!

Well we had a massive boost to the EU election campaign after holding two stalls in Halifax and Bradford. We handed out thousands of leaflets and got a really good response from the public.

We had many people pledge to vote for us (or had already voted for us - postal votes)

People took leaflets, stickers and policy booklets. Everybody was annoyed with the major parties and were pleased to see us out and about actually talking to people.

The Greens and NO2EU also had stalls when we were there in Halifax, but we were the only ones that stayed all day!

Interesting to see none of the main parties dared to show their face the weekend before the election. If they had, I think they would have been lynched....

Only thing left to do now is....

VOTE UKIP on the 4th JUNE!!!!!
