Why do UKIP become MEPs?

Have your say

We are hearing a lot about UKIP nowadays. There is something about them that has had me puzzled.

They make much about their dislike of the European Union and their desire to see the UK leave it.

At the same time they want their members to be elected as MEPs in the European Parliament. Surely, if the UK leaves the European Union then no-one from the UK will be an MEP?

Why are they then so keen to have their members elected as MEPs only to see them no longer MEPs if they achieve their desire. That was what has had me baffled.
