Is it all over now the party’s task is almost complete?
Ever since the referendum on June 23rd 2016 life has been pretty difficult for UKIP the party, which undoubtedly played a huge part in shaping this dramatic decision.
Since then we’ve all followed the various leadership issues and I chuckled when Fairy liquid produced an advertisement suggesting that one pack would last longer than four UKIP leaders.
Tonight’s poll from ICM, as can be seen above, has the party down at 1% which I believe is the lowest certainly since GE2010.
This coincides with a dramatic fall off in the number of council seats that it holds as well as the failure last June win a single MP.
BREXIT means, of course, that there will be no UKIP MEPs from March 29th next year assuming everything goes to plan.
It can be argued, of course, that the UKIP agenda has now been absorbed by the Conservative Party and that the need for the single issue organisation is not necessary anymore.
If this poll is right then the voters appear to have taken that on board.
