Campaigns against Ukip helped stop it winning the swathe of MPs it wanted, but it still won nearly 4 million votes. Stand Up to Ukip's Jo Cardwell says anti-racists need to keep up the pressure.
The UK Independence Party (Ukip) failed to win the number of MPs it hoped to in the general election, despite its meteoric rise in the polls since 2010. But despite its humiliating post-election fall-out, its high share of the vote serves as a warning for anti-racists.
Ukip was a few percent short of winning a number of MPs, and managed to poll nearly 4 million votes across the country, as well as control over its first local council, Thanet. The party came second in 120 constituencies; the top 20 of these are equally distributed between Tory and Labour areas.
