Great day for UKIP

Wonderful election results, and that is before the Norwich results come out,

In Cambridgeshire today UKIP have just scored a double first. Pete Reeve a local activist won both the District Council and County Council seat in Ramsey.

By beating the Tories into second place in the County Election with a whopping 43%, and in the District with 39% up from 22% last year.

Paul Nuttall MEP, UKIP party chairman said, "This shows that with a good candidate and with hard work UKIP are breaking through. Ramsey is in one of the Tory's safest seats and UKIP are, to coin a phrase, "winning here".

"We have never won a County Council by-election, and against a former Council leader and senior figure this is a massive boost. Over the past twelve months our votes have risen in this ward alone 17%. A phenomenal result for Pete and his hard working team"
