BREAKING: UKIP SURVIVES! Party Received £300,000 In Donations From Members & Supporters In One Month
In an astounding display of loyalty to the cause, UKIP’s members and supporters have donated £300,000 to the party since leader Gerard Batten launched a fundraising campaign to save the party at the start of March.
Despite only aiming to raise £100,000, the party has received over £300,000 in donations – triple the aim!
UKIP Leader Gerard Batten tweeted that “UKIP is now safe”, adding that the £175k to pay for the Jane Collins libel case has also been raised elsewhere.
I am very pleased to announce that my appeal to UKIP members to raise £100k to save the Party from insolvency has met with an incredibly generous response of almost £300k. In addition, the £175k legal bill has been paid by other means. UKIP is now safe.

The news will be particularly humiliating for London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who said: “Maybe we’ll mark that day, when UKIP is finally abolished, with a celebration.”
Looks like UKIP is back on the pitch for the local elections in May, but will they succeed at winning seats? Only time will tell.
