The emphasis added in the quote makes the situation very clear that in the UK the envelope trick may prove useful, but there is no certainty whatsoever.
My 2p - The fact that the UKIP office makes this comment adds real credibility to this process. I have never tested it but I would be willing to bet that most UK courts would accept this as fairly compelling historical evidence. If this were outdated or misdirected or worthy of being buried for good then the UKIP would advise us accordingly. ;)
