made an error in the %-ages you quoting here (originally) i think - but to come back to the result, good ukip result if for firat time of standing!

The (present - as i send this) figure of 5% is a typo i expect.... although wishful thinking too!

Yes, an excellent first result!

Thanks for point out the error, Phil. Copy & paste error - should be 57.

Superb - beating lib dems in europe was great and shows that UKIP is credible - getting double figures in UK elections just reinforces the point.

We have a springboard for this GE - we really have to make the most of it - by the next one we will have lost all our national infrastructure (especially military) and independence will be a thousand times harder...

UKIP should think about maximising their postal votes the way Labour do.
