UKIP Leader and parliamentary candidate for South Thanet, Nigel Farage, has slammed the Tory-supporting Times newspaper for its scathing attack on South Thanet and its residents today.
Writing in the Sunday Times newspaper, Camilla Long, the granddaughter of a Tory peer, describe the area as “bilious”, “grubby” and “a small nodule of erupted spleen”.

UKIP Leader Nigel Farage has today announced our election pledge to make St George's Day a Bank Holiday in a public meeting in Cliffsend in South Thanet today.
UKIP believes England should have a new public holiday on April 23, St George’s Day, or the next Monday if it fell on a weekend. In Wales, we propose that March 1 would be a new day off for the country to honour St David.
Nigel Farage said: “Surely it’s only fair for us to have a day off to celebrate our own patron saints too? England has been denigrated to such a point that English culture isn’t celebrated in the same way as the national cultures of Scotland and Ireland are.Continue reading...

UKIP today held its latest national day of action against Britain’s toll roads, describing them as ‘highway robbery’. Party activists delivered the message by unfurling huge banners at a series of ‘Scrap The Tolls’ demonstrations on road toll sites across the UK. Shropshire and Staffordshire UKIP members congregated at the Mill Lane Bridge, over the M6 Toll at Cheslyn Hay in the West Midlands.
UKIP Transport spokesman, Jill Seymour MEP, said drivers were already paying more than enough in taxes to deserve free access to the entire UK transport network.
Mrs Seymour, who is fighting The Wrekin seat at the general election, said: “Charging to use our busiest motorways or trunk roads is adding insult to injury to the already over-burdened British driver.
“UKIP is opposed to this highway robbery. We want to block the introduction of any new toll roads, and work towards removing existing tolls from publicly owned roads.Continue reading...
