UKIP were the success story in July, stealing votes and the show in local and European election contests.

It seemed like bad news all round, Labour lost over 400 seats in the local elections. The Tories scored 38 per cent in the council poll, a figure which if echoed in the general election would not return them to power. The Lib Dems were a happy second in the locals but had their spirits dampened by finishing fourth in the Euro elections.


But one party emerged as winners, the protest party, UKIP. Publicised by recently sacked chat show host and former Labour MP Robert Kilroy-Silk. UKIP’s message evidently resonated amongst parts of the electorate, the UK should pull out of Europe

Asked what he was going to do when he arrived in Brussels, Kilroy replied that he would "wreck it". The electorate was refreshed by his strange brand of clarity, and returned 12 UKIP MEPs.
