Perhaps the greatest breakthrough to come at the European Elections last year was the election of John Bufton as one of Wales' four MEPs. The Liberal Democrats, a Party with MPs in Wales, came a miserable fifth and don't even have an MEP representing Wales. That alone demonstrates the scale of the breakthrough.
The challenge now is to get UKIP Assembly Members elected in order to challenge the cosy consensus in the Welsh Assembly. UKIP must be a radical alternative in domestic elections at every level and UKIP Wales' main plank of opposing the extra layer of politicians who make up the Welsh Assembly is a great place to start. Power in the UK does need to be devolved - but to local councils and local people, not to regional or national assemblies. It seems like the Welsh media are starting to take notice.
