Last year, before the 2015 UK General election, I publicly announced I’d joined
the party UKIP. I always believe in being completely open about everything.
Mission accomplished. In no small part due to UKIP pressure, there will be a referendum in the UK on June 23rd on EU membership.
I’ll be covering this as a correspondent, so it’s no longer appropriate for me to be a member of a political party (even in this case, I was never an active member). I’ve not renewed my UKIP membership.
I put personal politics aside to cover this referendum objectively.
