  1. Britain’s UKIP Gains Another Foothold

    In a major blow to David Cameron’s Conservative Party, the UK Independence Party has nabbed another parliamentary seat in a special election.

With a general election just six months away, UKIP’s leader claims his far-right, anti-EU, anti-immigration party is about to become the third largest player in parliament.
