Big Win for Nigel Farage's UKIP in Local Elections, Wins 150 Seats

The Telegraph reports,
Local elections 2013: Nigel Farage's Ukip surges to best ever showing, winning 150 seats
The UK Independence Party has achieved its best showing at the polls yet by winning almost 150 seats in the council elections. 
Nigel Farage, the party’s leader, was jubilant after it emerged that one in four voters supported Ukip in the elections in 35 councils in England and Wales.
The rise of the party cost the Conservatives three local authorities, although Ukip did not win control of any councils.
The party was even second in the South Shields by-election in the north east of England, where the Tories were third and the Liberal Democrats a distant seventh. 
No doubt his opposition to the EU and the euro area played a significant part in securing these positive results for the party.
