Can pressure groups be vehicles for influencing public opinion and/or government decision making - or is this a little far-fetched?

The only successful pressure group so far has been UKIP.

Annyyyyway, not that often. Look at all the Greenpeace, anti-war, Occupy protests that have gone on - not very successful but big.
I'd say lobbying by pressure groups, which is often less visible is more successful. The kind of non-obvious pressure groups yes - Marine conservation society, Dignity in dying - both have been pretty successful in their aims for instance.
