UKIP Youth Conference Numbers Flop Even After Ticket Price Slashed.

EXCLUSIVE: Inside Young Independence Conference today

YOUNG INDEPENDENCE, UKIP's youth wing, was expecting its lowest ever attendance at a national conference when UKIP met in Doncaster today, TBG can exclusively reveal.

In the end just 20 or so activists turned up to the failing partys youth conference, this was even after UKIP had to slash their ticket prices for young people.

The Telegraph recently reported that overall ticket sales to the party’s national conference have flopped, pointing the blame at the costly £80 a day ticket. This led to UKIP quickly announcing a reduced £10 young person’s ticket.

An insider contacted this blog earlier in the week after being told by a member of the YI council, ran by Joe Jenkins, that the party were "not expecting more than a handful of young people" this weekend. He went on to say, "the reduced prices couldn’t come quick enough."

When questioned about the current chairmanship, TBG were told: "Joe has been a much successful leader than any we’ve recently had… much more polished and pleasing to the eye. However, with UKIPs’ membership reportedly falling, he may not have much of a youth wing to lead for much longer."
