They always say you've never really made it as a political party until you've got factions, and I guess UKIP thought they'd had all that with Veritas (who ?).
Now the BBC reports that 120 members in Plymouth are set to quit. Read the story HERE.
Has UKIP had its day ? What is clear is that when the Tories have "talked up" Europe in the past, it actually has the effect of turning voters off the Tories and on to UKIP. Now that Cameron has taken the sensible decision to avoid discussing the EU, the oxygen of publicity has been removed from UKIP.
I guess they hang on and will win a few less seats at the next Euro elections, but I think this is another nail in the coffin. It's not the beginning of the end (the Whole Kilroy-Silk thing takes that title), I just think the end will drag on for some time.
