Congratulations to Rex Parkinson-Hare!! Being based in Southtown, I can guarantee that my vote was not a protest vote but one of full support for UKIP in the European and county council elections. I'm so glad that UKIP are in for Southtown. This is a brilliant result for the people of the area who need a voice with local issues, some of which has to do with our place in Europe. Can't wait for Sunday's results. Good luck UKIP!
