UKIP Leader Nigel Farage has urged the Government to consider blocking the return of UK nationals who have gone to fight for Islamic State militants in the Middle East.
The UK Government can and should strip militants who hold joint nationality of their UK citizenship. Jihadists whose only nationality is British could have their passports withdrawn and those who do not hold UK citizenship but have been granted the right to live here should immediately have that right revoked.
Nigel Farage said "The Islamic State Militants are a group like no other. The sheer barbarism we are witnessing in countries like Iraq is without precedent in the modern era. It would be totally unforgivable and unacceptable for UK nationals who have made the decision to go and fight for Islamic State militants in the middle-east to be permitted to return to the UK and quietly slide back into our communities to take advantage of all that modern Britain has to offer.Continue reading...

UKIP Deputy Leader Paul Nuttall has welcomed the evidence exposing flaws in the claims made by Nick Clegg and Danny Alexander over huge job losses facing Britain if it leaves the EU.
They have often claimed that 3 million jobs would be at risk and Mr Alexander, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, said in June this year, that 'the latest Treasury analysis shows that 3.3 million British jobs are connected to Britain’s place in Europe'.Continue reading...

Nigel Farage has tonight revealed that the BBC Panorama programme is planning a rehash of attacks mounted on UKIP by The Times newspaper.
Panorama is preparing to repeat allegations made by people hostile to UKIP, often dating back many years, in an apparent bid to try and halt UKIP's advance.
Mr Farage has written to Panorama boss Elizabeth Byrne refusing to cooperate with the programme because of its biased agenda and demanding that his letter is read out in full in any programme that is broadcast.
His letter also raises the prospect that it is rattled Labour activists who are now attempting to discredit UKIP, using the same techniques that flopped for the Tories and the Times in the run-up to the European elections.Continue reading...

The figures come out at the same time universities say there will be an extra 30,000 university places available this year, estimating that some half-a-million young people will take up places on degree courses in Autumn.Continue reading...

New EU rules which could see families and pensioners having to separate their rubbish into six separate bins have been labelled as ‘farcical’ by UKIP’s North East Euro MP, Jonathan Arnott.
Britain’s biggest waste firm, Veolia, warned “From January 2015, EU rules mean households and businesses may need to separate their waste into six separate bins. Veolia thinks most of the sorting can be done post-collection and that four bins are more than enough”.
Government officials are looking closely at the revised EU waste framework directive, but maintain that councils should be left to decide how to collect rubbish.
Mr Arnott said “Opinion polls show that the vast majority of the British public believe that recycling is important. However, this idea that to promote recycling people should be given six bins to use is a complete farce.
“No thought has been put in to this proposal at all. The vast majority of people won’t have the space to hold six bins. A higher number of bins, presumably, would lead to more infrequent refuse collections between each specific bin, potentially bringing more rats and waste on the streets to the local area.
“The expectation that families going about their busy everyday lives should have to remember the specifics for each bin and up to six different refuse collection dates is totally moronic".
