UKIP: The opposition party in waiting

Posted on September 16th, 2016

UKIP MEP for the South East, Diane James, has been elected as UKIP's new Leader, succeeding Nigel Farage MEP.

In her acceptance speech Diane stated unequivocally that her aim is to make the United Kingdom Independence Party the UK's Opposition party.

Speaking from the main stage of UKIP's Annual Conference in Bournemouth, Diane concluded her speech to UKIP's members in the hall and to those watching at home saying, "Under my leadership UKIP will confound our critics, UKIP will outwit our opponents, UKIP will build on its electoral success to date, UKIP will become the Opposition in waiting."
