THE deputy leader of UKIP joined more than 100 party members and supporters for a fundraising curry in Beaconsfield.

MEP Paul Nuttall was the main speaker at The Old Bengal in Wycombe End last month and was also joined by Tim Scott, the UKIP parliamentary candidate for the town.

Mr Scott said: “UKIP are the only opposition to the Conservatives here. Labour and the Lib Dems are nowhere to be seen”.

During the evening they were able to raise £700 for party funds.

I think that UKIP may do fairly well at next year’s general election (a handful of MP’s) - however, I also feel that they have/or are just about to reach their high water mark in popularity.

Now that they are being more polished by those at the top, the party then changes its dimension and looses the common touch that appealed to many people.

I feel that they will become just like the other political parties or fizzle out and merge with the Conservatives as the Referendum party once did.

But then again, I’m no fan of any political party!

But then again they don't have the likes of Lord Rennard to bankroll them. What those poor women have been through. One of them was even hoping to become an MP till she was victim of his advances. She spoke out in the Mail today.

All main political parties are funded, all are as bad as each-other. The Libdems have some very dodgy donors, the Labour Party are mostly bankrolled by the Unions, the Tories have very wealthy backers and now even UKIP has a Daddy (Paul Sykes) paying to shine them up for the electorate... The power goes to the parties, we the people are the mugs who vote for them. The system needs a shakeup - but guess who holds the power NOT to change things... lol.... yep you guessed it = The parties....! and they wonder why we don’t trust them….

UKIP are gaining support every day,. and NO! they are not losing touch with the public, it may sometimes take a little time to re educate new members from Lab/Cons. It was NOT a publicity stunt and the fact they got £700 was a reflection on the public not them. Paul Sykes donate to UKIP because he believes in them not for his own gain, he also donates to many charities without personal gain, donations from Union, The Media,Big business and the EU is given for gain. VOTE UKIP

Ner.... sorry! You guys maybe the new kids on the block and anti establishment - but all the main parties went through that at the beginning. You were the protest vote. I'm afraid to say that even if you do manage to get one MP into Parliament or a handful, you will turn out just like the rest of them and morph into the system. Political parties are not the way forward. They are controlled by a handful at the top who use the rest of the members, etc

If Brian Mapletoft had won the Hazlemere byelection they would have had more money and a group at the Council. Also Brian Pierce would have been Mayor.

I find that very hard to believe....Brian lost his credibility when he decided to join UKIP. He did a brilliant job with kicking the running track out but made a mistake not to run as an Independent candidate. Brian P didn’t have the backing from the Libdems & Labour Trustees, it would make no difference if there was one, two or more UKIP Cllrs. Brian now has to fight to keep his seat in next year’s WDC elections.

UKIP supporters. I accept you do have have a sizable negative vote, the 'something-must-be-d
one vote, the old vote. All legitimate vote, no question. Folks are frightened of the rapid evolution of politics, corruption, especially in Europe.
However, you must show action, leadership, understanding of issues. Giving parties and celebrating you own zeal and convictions simply is not enough. Otherwise we will get worse Ofsteds, muddled governance, inequality, empower left wing radicalism. unrest from the less advantaged, more overt corruption than that we see now.

Darren has a point, no more ''you will see''. we want to see your metal now.

PS. Mapletoft makes some very bd decisions. He kicked out NOTHING. WDC Councillors did not understand their duty and wimped out! There is no room for NIMBIES in Bucks. protectionism leads to rot, ask Europe.
