Well, I've been and Voted. true to my word, standing at the polling booth i placed my X in UKIP's box. Up the Alamo.
It'll be interesting to see how UKIP do in the Local Elections. which we should get to know about roughly later tonight / into the early hours. But ultimately its the European Election result im most looking forward to. which we'll get a rough idea about. but wont fully know until Sunday european wide - but here in the UK law states the results have to be read out at the counting/polling centre. so we should get a good idea.So
