Scotland voted to save the Union, only just …but at what cost to the unity of the Kingdom?
UKIP is a national party with elected representation in all four nations of the United Kingdom.

UKIP MEP Jane Collins calls for Shaun Wright to face legal action for his many failures to act to protect childrenPosted on September 16
UKIP MEP and Rotherham Central PPC Jane Collins calls for Shaun Wright to face legal action for his many failures to act to protect children:

It is disgusting that he has waited this long to resign. The audacity of those involved in the numerous grave failings of Rotherham Council and Child Protection Services is appalling.
