UKIP offering free membership

UKIP is now offering 12 months free membership for new joiners.

Free members don't get voting rights in the party until they convert to full (paid) membership, nor do they get Independence magazine but they do get an e-newsletter and advance notice of UKIP events in their area and more importantly, an opportunity to stick two fingers up at the tired old LibLabCon parties.

This is what's referred to in business as a loss leader - you give something away to gain from it at a later date.  It's a great idea and I'm sure it'll bring in a lot of new members.

You've got nothing to lose so why not sign up for free membership?  And if you do decide to continue your membership after the free 12 month period, I believe it's the lowest membership fee of any UK party!
