British Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservative party dropped its hostile tone towards the Eurosceptic UKIP party on Saturday after it lost over 200 seats in local elections and a survey suggested it would lose a national vote next year. The UK Independence Party, which wants Britain to leave the European Union and for immigration to be tightly restricted, won the fourth biggest number of seats in Thursday's local elections, notching up its largest gains in such a vote ever. It took seats from all three main political parties including the opposition Labour party, which came first but did not win as emphatically as it had hoped.
