"When people stand up and talk about the great success that the EU has been, I'm not sure anybody saying it really believes it themselves anymore." - Nigel Farage
The United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP or Ukip) is one of the political parties of the MHoC, currently led by Unown Uzer.
UKIP was generally a decently-sized party outside of The Big Three (Labour, Conservatives, Liberals), competing with the Socialist Party and Greens for fourth-largest.
However, with the turmoil of Brexit and defections to other parties, UKIP's membership and activity is largely in decline, being currently unable to elect a Deputy Leader since Hazzer1998's resignation of the position and defection to the Liberal Party.
UKIP participated in the first TSR General Election in 2005. A relaunch of UKIP took place in 2010 on a change of name by the TSR Patriotic Conservative Party founded a year earlier. Despite initially being the smallest party in terms of both MPs and members, UKIP in recent times has been one the most active party with the highest output of legislation when measured per capita, and when measured as a figure. UKIP members are the most active members in the MHoC with the party maintaining the highest voting record, and helping make gains every year; UKIP now has eight MPs to be the third largest party in the MHoC.
