That’s the number of votes the various UKIP candidates garnered in the past UK election. The UKIP got the most votes of any political party that did not win a seat in Parliament. I was pleased to see that the UKIP beat soundly the racist British National Party. They may have also affected the size of the Tory win. For those with wonkish characteristics, try this blogger’s stats.
However, I am disappointed. The people of the United Kingdom need leadership. They got none from Labour or the so called LibDems. Both want the UK in a strong EU. The Tories at least have some euroskeptic members and as I said last week, some encouraging young members. Rory Stewart won his election. So did Sajid Javid, the first Muslim MP (another conservative). Kwasi Kwarteng won in Spelthorne riding. I like this particular new MP! Louise Bagshawe prevailed as well. Phillipa Stroud lostdue to an anti-Christian smear. But the young turks in the Tories seem to be on the march.
But the crisis is still acute. The people of Britain are asleep. May they awaken in time to save their nation! I exhort the British to join up and vote/support the UKIP.
