"Will the last person to quit UKIP please remember to turn out the lights"

Well why would they? they got that which they want, which I personaly still claim was "inspite of" not "because of" them. They went down the road of anti immigration, that cost them, they hit the glass ceiling and the was always going to be it for them really. So we left the EU, whats left?

I think UKIP had a window to recast themselves after Brexit as a replacement for Labour as the voice of the working man and woman. I also think they have missed that window.

If Labour doesn't buck their ideas up someone will take their place as the alternative to the Conservatives. It might yet be the Liberal Democrats. Who knows - it might even be some new campaign for the Harrogate Agenda. :-)
