    "We now have a very strong team, with talent apparent in all departments.

    In the business brief I intend to continue to make the case for strong, sensible regulation, which takes into account the unique aspects of the UK business model, rather than having rules that reflect other, and often anti-business dynamics".

  • Jonathan Arnott MEP appointed Constitutional Affairs Spokesman

    Posted on December 02

    JonathanArnottRole.jpgJonathan Arnott MEP said, "UKIP has achieved our goal of winning the Brexit referendum and power must now be returned from Brussels to Westminster. But that's only half of the job done: we now need to take that same power and put it right back in the hands of the great British people where it belongs. It means ensuring that our MPs take responsibility for their own actions, so that corrupt politicians can be recalled and drummed out of office. It means letting the public call binding referendums on issues that matter to them. It means a fairer electoral system, it means reform of the House of Lords, and it means ensuring a fair deal for the English, the Welsh, the Scottish and the Northern Irish so that no part of our United Kingdom can feel disadvantaged or left out.

    "Most importantly of all, it means fiercely protecting our sovereignty, so that never again can a Parliament sign us up to an undemocratic supranational organisation like the European Union. When we, the people, invest power in a Parliament at a General Election we expect it to be returned to us, intact, at the following election.

    "UKIP is, and must always be, the Party that keeps the flame of democracy alive. If we want to increase turnout at elections, we have to begin by putting more power into the hands of the people. Our opponents will call it populism; we call it democracy."

  • Andrew Charalambous appointed Work and Pensions Spokesman

    Posted on December 02

    AndrewChamRole.jpgAndrew Charalambous said, “I am honoured and privileged to serve as Work and Pensions Spokesman. Under Paul the best is yet to come for UKIP and for Great Britain.

    “Work and Pensions is the single biggest sector of government spending, and we will give the British taxpayer exceptional value for money. Today our elderly are paying the price for the political failures of successive Tory and Labour governments. Under UKIP nobody will be forgotten, nobody left behind. We will give British pensioners the respect they deserve by increasing pensions to reflect current standards of living, taking tens of thousands out of poverty. It is disgraceful that British pensions are 'worse than in most of Europe'.

    “On the other side of the coin, millions of people currently in their twenties are facing the prospect of working till they are 70 before receiving state pension.
