What kind of choice does UKIP offer?
The United Kingdom Independence Party is cook-a-hoop over coming second in the Eastleigh by-election, and their candidate who did so well asserted after the count that UKIP would now get much more publicity and air space, and perhaps that is just as well.
Their stance on Europe is well known, but relations with other countries in Europe is only one issue political parties have to have to contend with.
If a party is to be a party not just of protest but potentially of government, it must have clear policies on Education, defence, health, housing, transport, etc.
Just leaving Europe, even if that is desirable, is not enough.

Many, many key questions about our future would still remain and hopefully greater media coverage will provide opportunities for scrutiny of what UKIP puts forward, if it does.
In the by-election campaign UKIP claimed to get support from both left and right.
But are their "left" and "right" supporters really in agreement on education, taxation policies, health, social support systems or Defence?
I think the Eastleigh constituents were sensible to actually choose a candidate who has demonstrated on the ground that he and his party can provide the range of facilities local people need.
