UKIP candidate for South Basildon and East Thurrock, Kerry Smith is a very busy man. He is not only standing for parliament but also for council in Barking and Dagenham. That’s not all: he is organising many of the candidates across the south including working nearly every day with famous boxing promoter Frank Moloney who is standing for the UKIP in Barking.
So if there is anyone who can gauge how UKIP are doing it is Kerry. It is interesting that Kerry feels that voters feel angry at the moment but he feels that UKIP can channel their anger into votes. He also feels that people are a lot more rational and determined to consider where they will place their cross.
