UKIP is surging across the United Kingdom.

In Scotland, some parties are trying to dismiss the new reality. One “claim” is that three out of four voters won’t think of voting UKIP.

That means 25% of voters would! That could secure two MEPs in Scotland, and several MSPs. The average poll in the very successful and sensational English Council election was less than 25%Things are looking good for UKIPScotland.

Our membership is climbing up by 50% in six months. It’s a myth we are some sort of Tories – wrong, we even have a branch chairman who was an SNP member before last Christmas. And our ranks include many former Labour activists.
