as Bob Spink, already expelled from the Conservative Party, joins them. Maybe this is the new way for smaller parties to beat the first past the post system, recruit upset MPs from other parties.
It’s interesting that in European elections, when Europe is obviously the mani issue, UKIP have as many MEPs as the pro-European Liberal Democrats. But none in the House of Commons until now, due to the different systems.
It’ll be interesting to see if Bob Spink can win for UKIP come next election.
