Ukip candidate Peter Jewell said whatever happens tonight the party were making headway.
“We had three per cent last time and If we continue on that with growth, for a party that is relatively new we will be making headways, like we have been doing for the past five years.”
“Nationally, I have always said Lib Dems would be wiped out, especially since Clegg went back on his promise to lower tuition fees. But if we get anything above 15 per cent, I think we have done well.
“It is 2.30am and if what gets declared nationally is 4 million voters and we get two seats then there is an issue with proportional representation and that means the people are not getting what they are voting for.”
