Ukip is the anti-EU party, standing up for the common man, spouting "traditional British values" and saying no to congested roads.

Or so they've had everyone thinking all along. An unfortunate error (or a Freudian slip perhaps) from the members of the party's Rotherham branch posted a Christmas message in the local Rotherham Record which triumphantly said "SAY NO TO THE UK!".
