I see the new this morning is that UKIP have their first MP. Bob Spink, who recently left the Tories has decided to join UKIP and not be an independent. Apparently they didn't woo him into joining though. According to a UKIP spokesman it was a "mutual attraction based on a wish to get out of the EU and have accountability and democracy again".
I personally can't say I disagree on the leaving the EU point, but I imagine UKIP will be ploughing some serious resource in to holding on to his Castlepoint seat at the next election. It will certainly be interesting to see how much personal vote he has compared to the old adage of sticking the right colour rosette on a donkey.
