Could UKIP leader Paul Nuttall win Boston, the most pro-Brexit part of the country?

29 Apr

The population of Boston increased by 15.9 per cent between 2001 and 2011, according to the last census – twice the national rate.

The largest increase in population was among people in their 20s – showing a large increase in the working population.

This has led to tensions in the community, with jobs being seen to be under pressure. 17 per cent of people in Boston are process plant and machine operatives, while a further 13 per cent are skilled tradespeople.

Such frustration should be perfect for UKIP, which hopes to capitalise on economic stagnation, anti-immigrant and anti-establishment feeling to capture votes for a new direction.
