The result of the 2014 EU Election is favourable to UKIP. However, many people didn’t participate in the said election because of hopelessness. Is my vote going to make a difference? Can it impact the government? As with the result of the election, UKIP’s win was decided by only 9 votes.
The popularity of UKIP
UKIP’s popularity is linked with the new stronghold being fostered in the coastal towns. Take note that this is the only time that UKIP is very determined to make it to the local election as well as in the European election. It is very obvious that this year’s election there was a scapegoating of immigrants, but this phenomenon is not new. The spirit of UKIP is surely one of the reasons to be feared.
The growing support for UKIP is linked with the increasing number of anti-immigrant and nationalist parties. UKIP has a strong campaign against EU immigration. The party believes that if the United Kingdom refuses immigrants from Eastern Europe, then they will be able to disentangle their problems. The unemployment problem will be resolved and the economy will surely flourish.
