THE people of Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay and the villages have spoken. They have chosen the Ukip in the European elections, beating the second placed Conservatives by over 3,000 votes in the Canterbury district area. In every area, Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay and the villages, it appears the UK Independence Party may have come first. Rich or poor, employee or small business person, young or old, black or white, Ukip makes you this promise; if you stick with us, if you back us, we will not abandon you, we will not betray you. We are Ukip, and were here to stay.
David Hirst, Ukip
