UKIP's real aim
Swansea Lib Dem leader, Councillor Chris Holley, said he was baffled by UKIP.
"What I don't understand is why they are standing in the Assembly elections or the local elections in Wales," said the former council leader.
"It must now become clear to everyone that Ukip is just a one issue party. On every other issue they are the same as the current Conservative Party in Westminster."
The reason is, of course, to cream off more public money in the form of salary and expenses in order to fund their atavistic isolationist campaigns against European cooperation. If elected, any UKIP AM will clearly spend as little time in Cardiff as his or her comrades do in Brussels and Strasbourg.
In particular, I am informed by one of his erstwhile constituents that Mark Reckless has given no indication that he intends to give up his seat on Medway Council in Kent.
