Every working day, John Gill in the HQ produces a news brief for the party management. We also receive it, so UKIP Daily readers can see the same articles our leaders are being pointed at. We now aim to publish it every weekday morning, and then try to do the more comprehensive “in-depth” review on the weekned days, all under the “Kippers for Breakfast” banner. Also, at the bottom, you will usually find the key events happening today in the Palace of Westminster and other important places.
