As the live blog has become too long and unwieldy, we continue with the most important event of today: the vote count and the result. I repeat from the Live Blog, and then go on: THUS ENDS THE EGM – EVERYBODY IS NOW ON THEIR WAY BACK HOME 16.40: Oakden starts with giving thanks to the staff [...]

February 16, 2018 // 9 Comments

Ed~This is the second part of a two-part article. The first part was published on Wednesday and can be found here on UKIPDaily.
