Well noone saw this coming. The government should have. That's why we elect them. To look after us and our country's interests. But our political leaders have failed. It would have been the same under a Labour government. All governments seem to be incapable of looking beyond the 24hr news cycle.

Anyone coming in or returning to the country from any COVID-19-infested country such as China or Italy should have have been quarantined. Visible measures such as people in protective suits, temperature checking and journey origination checking should have been implemented at all points of entry by air, train and sea.

where UKIP's latest news can be found.
But UKIP is not just about Brexit - we campaign on a range of issues and there is still much to fight for. So why not Become a member
