About six months ago there was much hype on websites, blogs and Forums that UKIP were about to adopt a policy in support of a Parliament for England. It will defiantly go through, we were told, because Mr Farage is in favour.
Since then UKIP have had a conference where the UKIP Wales section organised a meeting against an EP. We then read that a member of the CEP told the EDP conference that a UKIP member had kicked a CEP member speaking in favour of a Parliament.
In January we were told that it was being discussed by the UKIP membership and that a vote would be taken ‘soon’ which would confirm the policy.
A number of prominent English nationalists joined UKIP on the strength of this ‘certainty’, we wonder if they are as disappointed as we are at the total lack of any obvious movement towards their goal?
England Watch is conscious that a number of recent polls have put UKIP ahead of the Lib’ Dem’s, if this is to become a trend then it could a strong argument against UKIP adopting a policy of support for an English Parliament and remaining a full UK party.
