UKIP membership increased by 1,000 since September

The total membership of UKIP has increased from 16,000 in September to 17,000 today.
There are several possible reasons for this:

* Since Nigel Farage was elected UKIP leader in September, UKIP has gotten more media coverage
* The Conservatives new image have encouraged "traditional Tories" to defect to UKIP.

43% of Tories see UKIP as party closest to their views,,-6256008,00.html

43% of Conservative Party members see UKIP as the party (other than Tory)which is closest to their political views. It was 8 months ago that David Cameron slammed UKIP for being "fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists". Cameron did this in order to make UKIP look bad, but however the opposite effect is happening as many Tories are defecting to UKIP because of Cameron's changes to the Conservative Party e.g. making it more pro-EU, making it more pro-multiculturalist.

At this rate, it will look like the Tories will not win the 2009/2010 General Election.
Im sure Cameron will probably change the name of the party soon to fit with his views.
