UKIP Housing Spokesman, Andrew Charalambous, has slammed Labour's housing announcement today saying that it will create huge instability in the housing market
"This is uncosted blatant last minute electioneering. Any help for first time buyers is of course welcome, but there is a significant risk that all this measure will do is lead to further house price inflation as it changes neither the number of would-be buyers nor the number of properties available for sale. That nobody is actually dealing with the demand element of housing shows that the political class want to simply coax voters with flawed short term sweeteners rather than address the overall problem of a housing crisis in the UK."Continue reading...

UKIP Leader Nigel Farage: “The Labour Party is now running scared of UKIP. It has lost the big arguments on the impact of uncontrolled immigration on working class communities up and down the land.
“Working people have experienced at first-hand the wage compression, high youth unemployment, long housing waiting lists, struggle for school places, pressure on health services and loss of community cohesion ushered in by Labour’s open door approach.
“Labour is now haemorrhaging votes to UKIP as its traditional supporters come to realise how out of touch its privileged metropolitan leadership is from the lives of working people.Continue reading...

“Cameron’s latest plea on immigration is the most disingenuous yet from a rattled Tory leader. With UKIP’s poll ratings back on the rise and the election only two weeks away to claim that the Tories can be trusted on immigration after 5 years of abject failure is taking the electorate for fools, and they are not fools” said Steven Woolfe MEP the UKIP Migration Spokesman.
“Instead of the 10’s of thousands that Cameron promised to restrict net immigration to we have seen over half a million net in the past two years alone, 210,000 in 2013, 298,000 in 2014.
“Cameron has failed and failed again, and yet he has the brass neck to think that people will believe him that he has a grip. The only thing he has a hold onto is the fantasy that he can do anything significant to control our borders.Continue reading...

“The reported crime figures from the ONS today show that crime overall is down, but I would question whether this is a true reflection of reality” asks Diane James MEP, the UKIP Home Affairs spokesman.
“Given that media coverage over the last year has highlighted falling crime statistics, voters will be left wondering how accurate these figures really are. In trying to see a silver lining it would appear to be good news that overall crime is down in today's crime survey, but the reduction is in fact marginal.
“What is of far more concern and indeed is deeply shocking is the incredible increase in crimes against the person and in particular violence, especially against women.Continue reading...
