    UKIP Home Affairs Spokesman Diane James has criticised Theresa May for trying to rush knee-jerk and dangerous counter terrorism legislation through Parliament in order to mask her Government's failings.

    "We know that radicalism is being harboured in our society, but for years successive Governments have wilfully ignored the warning signs of this and criticised those who did raise concerns, like UKIP, who the Conservatives called 'fruitcakes and racists.' Now we are seeing knee-jerk, non-specific and frankly dangerous legislation being rushed through Parliament by the end of next month.

    "We have the strongest counter-terrorism legislation in the world through TPIMs. Yet there is a real risk here that the boost she wants to give current law will lead to individuals being targeted without due consideration to the presumption of innocence.

    "May does not even specify who would be targeted and on what grounds, meaning anybody could be labelled as extremist. What we are left with could be abused to shut down free speech and discriminate against individuals and organisations disproportionately and without due cause.

    "It's been cobbled together to try to reassure the public that the Government knows how to deal with the mounting threat of brutal terrorism in the Middle East.

  • Counter Terrorism expert and former Deputy Mayor of London Richard Barnes joins UKIP

    Posted on September 30

    800px-Richard_Barnes.jpgRichard Barnes, author of the report on the 7/7 London Bombings and the former Deputy Mayor under Boris Johnson, has joined UKIP.

    Mr Barnes said: “I am delighted to join a party that says what it does and does what it says. My main reason for joining the party is its wholehearted opposition to the HS2 railway project that was always an expensive bung to the marginal seats in the Midlands, but is a £50 billion white elephant that will have virtually no impact on the vast majority of train users, but will drain transport coffers”.

    “UKIP talks to, listens to and speaks for the ordinary men and women of this country in a way that the other parties just cannot grasp. On issues such as education, taxation, immigration and of course the European Union it is UKIP that is speaking for the majority.”
