This House Believes UKIP has been Good for British Politics

**Due to national press interest, this debate has been uploaded early. The full Michaelmas 2014 program will be uploaded in mid December**

In the Chair: Tim Squirrell, President of the Union (Michaelmas 2014)

The rise of UKIP represents the most serious threat in a generation to the dominance of the political establishment. In this debate we ask whether this and the issues it has thrust to the forefront of national politics is a positive development.

Zumba: Cancelled

Zumba class this evening has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control.
