We did it. We made history. June 23 can now go down as our Independence Day.
A huge, heart-felt well done and thank-you to everyone in the East Midlands who voted to leave.
Our region had the second highest leave vote in the whole of the country, with 58.8 per cent.
We won a historic victory, accomplishing something very few outside of UKIP ever thought we could.
We have a bright future to now look forward to as an independent state, free to make our own laws and control our own destiny.
