O dear Mark! One of the winning UKIP Candidates Dan Long is an ex-Labour Candidate. We won the popular vote, five seats to your 4 and the Tories 3, and lost 3 seats by 26, 28 or 58 - you held onto the Council by those 26 votes in Harlow Common! Last year we were 399 votes from winning the Parliamentary Seat - last night we WON IT! 7122 votes for UKIP, to Labour's 6985 and Tories 5892! That's a hell of a protest vote! Only one policy? That's one more than Labour for a start! More right wing than the Tories? We oppose the Bedroom Tax - so that's nonsense too! LOVE HARLOW _ VOTE UKIP - GET UKIP!!!
