Life expectancy of a UKIP MEP

In 2004, 12 UKIP MEPs were elected - one resigned, one expelled for benefit fraud and one was jailed for false accounting and money laundering

In 2009 13 UKIP MEPs were elected 13 and so far 4 have gone and there is still 6 months to go!.

In 7 years UKIP have lost 7 MEPs for various reasons - probably more than all the other parties put together.  United Kingdom ? hardly a united party.

what of those who stay ?

UKIP Leader Mr Farage is ranked fifth in the league table of MEPs with the worse attendance record, while deputy leader Paul Nuttall is fourth, after voting just 46 per cent of the time.

Figures also show UKIP MEPs attend just 30 per cent of European Parliament committees

Mr Nuttall has turned up to only two of 56 meetings of the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Committee since June 2010.

Mr Farage attended only just one of 42 Fisheries Committee meetings in the three years to January 2013. He has since resigned
