Merry Christmas

It's been an interesting year for UKIP and for us here at Bloggers4UKIP.

Elections have been a bit of a mixed bag for UKIP this year with the best election result in the history of the party - second place in Barnsley - and some quite disappointing results such as Leicester South.  UKIP has started to overtake the Lib Dems in opinion polls and elections and should cement its position as the third party in the UK in 2012.

UKIP has had a number of defections, mainly from the Tories, but of course these were overshadowed somewhat by David Campbell Bannerman's return "home" to the europhile Tories (certainly no great loss to UKIP, I never could stand the bloke).

The Tories passed the EU Bill that was supposed to give us a referendum when they handed sovereignty over to the EU but it is so badly written they've managed to avoid it so far.  MPs also had the opportunity to vote for a referendum on membership of the EU but all three leaders of the LibLabCon whipped their MPs to vote against it, David Cameron even going as far as threatening MPs with the sack if they voted for a referendum.

The €uro has been on the brink of collapse for most of the year and the future has never looked so bleak for the europhiles.

We'd like to wish all our readers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
