The truth about UKIP

UKIP graphic 2Our friends over at Unions Together have put together a very brief guide to the truth about UKIP, which you can find by clicking here.

The BBC’s Sunday Politics programme last year found that 1 in 3 UKIP councillors have previously been Conservative Party candidates, and 7 in 10 UKIP councillors were previously Tory voters. We understand that the former Conservative councillor for our area has joined them.

UPDATE: We now know that the UKIP candidate for Wickersley ward is a former Rotherham Conservative councillor, as are the candidates for neighbouring Hellaby and Silverwood wards.

It’s no wonder Nigel Farage told The Sun that he is the only politician keeping the flame of Thatcherism alive.
