Principle or pragmatism?
So UKIP have won at least two councillors, in Derby and Hull?
I hope they will conduct themselves on the principle on which they were elected: to get out of Europe.
Of course I will be interested to see what they will do over EU funding projects in their local areas: £6.8m in Derby and £35m in Hull to 2006.
Would it be too much for them to demand that filthy foreign money be sent back to Brussels? I reckon their first council meetings should be extremely fun to watch!
