UKIP taking a "step in the right direction" after losing councillor

Congratulations must be extended to UKIP on their extremely effective campaign fought in the local elections last week. Following the success of the last election, which UKIP had an exceptional total of 6 seats; they announced that this time round they were putting up 1,000 candidates. Party leader Nigel Farage publicly talked about what great gains they were going to make. How right he was, not only did UKIP fail to gain a single new council seat, they managed to lose one as well, leaving them with just 5 councillors- two fewer than the Cornish nationalists, Mebyon Kernow and one more than the Independent Kidderminster Hospital and Health Concern!

One would think that UKIP's reaction would be one of disappointment.......far from it! UKIP's website declared that despite the loss the result was a "step in the right direction". Party leader Nigel Farage stated that "The results make it quite clear that our support is growing and our policies are sounding the right chord with a growing number of people."

So Mr. Farage does it mean then that the issue of greater self-government in Cornwall is of more pressing concern to the general public than Britain's position in Europe and our immigration policies? Its time to wake up and realise that the public see you for what you really are....

This BBC table shows the reality of UKIP's status in local government.

What's all this now about a UKIP MEP supporting reform of the common agricultural policy? Reform eh? Whatever happened to abolition?
