YOUR LETTERS: Support for UKIP is growing

Have your say

Thank you to everyone who voted for me as the UKIP candidate for police and crime commissioner.

Lincolnshire gave the closest result for UKIP in the whole country, getting almost 25.5 per cent of the vote, going through to the second preference stage and snapping at the heels of the Conservative winner.

Naturally, I am disappointed that we did not win, but the results show our support is growing in Lincolnshire.

We now have a huge fight on our hands to get out of the EU, which I will be campaigning hard for.

With a no vote, we will be able to control our borders and boost our economy by opening up huge new trade opportunities with the rest of the world.
