UKIP parliamentary candidates have just received a message of thanks from the UKIP party leader, Paul Nuttall. In his email he says, among other things:
I want to make it clear that UKIP is, always has been and always will be different from the careerist political establishment. We are the ordinary men and women of this country. We got into politics to achieve something, as we have done in the most seismic of ways. That mission isn’t over.
I agree with all that. That’s why I joined UKIP, and why I am standing up for the things that matter to the people of Preston.
