UKIP vote on a resolution for the first time

There was only one roll-call vote on the final vote of the resolution on Anti-Semitism and all parties voted in favour, including UKIP MEPs.

It is worth noting that this is the first time in this Legislature that UKIP have supported a Parliament Resolution. They have voted against or abstained on all other resolutions, including those on the Asian Tsunami disaster andon free and fair elections in Ukraine

They have done so on the grounds that they do not want the European Parliament to interfere in the affairs of the nation state, nor do they wish to support any processes of the Institution because they believe this will only serve to strengthen it. Perhaps their support for the anti-Semitism resolution has shown that they now recognise the Parliament has some validity?
