Members voted between 2 possible logos, and after the coffee break UKIP’s new logo was announced. We all hope it will grow on us.

There were several very informative, rousing, and sometimes humorous speeches over the two days.

And earlier than expected on day one the Leadership election results were announced. Huge cheers nearly lifted the roof when it became clear that the winner bya very comfortable majority was HENRY BOLTON OBE.

The Conference ended with rousing – and very moving – anthem singing: the National Anthem, Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory.

8 concluding with heartfelt anthems

Most members returned to their Branches filled with new hope for UKIP’s future.
