  • Vote Jack Clarkson for South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner

    Posted on October 30


    The Police and Crime Commissioner election in South Yorkshire takes place today. We are in a very strong position and it's a straight fight between UKIP and Labour. We can win this election and really cause a storm in this Labour heartland.

    By voting for Jack Clarkson, you will be voting for common sense and one law for all, that will be implemented without fear or favour.

    Jack says: "My aim, if elected as Police and Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire, would be simple. To re-establish and maintain the public’s trust in the uniform I was so proud to wear for more than 30 years.

  • Incompetent Home Office results in 29,000 asylum cases still unresolved since 2007

    Posted on October 29

    Responding to the Public Accounts Committee report that shows 29,000 asylum cases still unresolved from 2007, UKIP’s Migration Spokesman, Steven Woolfe MEP commented:

    “It is clear from today’s figures that our immigration system is in a complete spin on how to manage asylum cases into the UK. The blame must lie with the Secretary of State responsible, Theresa May."

    “The fact that 29,000 asylum cases are still to be resolved, dating back to the previous Labour government, shows clearly that our system is mismanaged, under staffed and under resourced. Most disturbing, is the government’s approach to the development of an IT system to support Border and Home office staff. Wasting £100s of millions is not only a national disgrace but a national security concern."

  • Even pro-European Tories now admit the truth. You cannot control immigration while we are in the EU

    Posted on October 29

    jqcPBsPM.jpegResponding to skills and equalities minister Nick Boles' comments in this morning’s FT that the government’s approach to immigration is damaging Britain’s global competitiveness, Steven Woolfe MEP said:

    “Nick Boles' comments reveal the shambolic thinking of the Conservative Party on migration. They really do seem to be making it up as they go along in response to the well-thought through UKIP migration policy that I outlined at our Doncaster Conference.

    “On the one hand you have government ministers saying that we are being ‘swamped’ with immigrants and now, on the other, a minister is saying that our immigration system is too hard. In fact what is clear is that the government’s confusion about migration policy and their ineffectual application of existing rules around illegal immigration that is making Britain a target for organised people trafficking.

  • Nicola Sturgeon is deliberately ignoring the result of the Scottish referendum

    Posted on October 29

    David-Coburn-MEP.jpgWhile UKIP is confident that Scotland would, with the rest of then UK vote to leave the EU, and therefore gain real independence, it recognizes that Scotland is less Eurosceptic than the rest of the UK.

    If the result was against Ms Sturgeon wishes, then what she is proposing today would be the most divisive and destructive possible act. She is attempting to break up the United Kingdom, despite losing the referendum. Her proposal is not that of a democrat, but of a petulant adolescent.

    UKIP MEP for Scotland, David Coburn said: "Nicola Sturgeon's veto plan is ridiculous.

    "We are part of the United Kingdom. Our country is Great Britain - I don't hold a Scottish passport, I hold a British passport as do we all.

    "We are one country and that was decided as part of the referendum, so what part of no don't they understand?"

  • David Cameron's EU Referendum Bill collapses - UKIP responds

    Posted on October 29

    10251977_660709683976638_2029174054560815548_n.pngDavid Cameron's European Referendum Bill has failed following the lack of support from the Conservative Party's coalition partners the Liberal Democrats. Even if the Bill had somehow managed to make it past a second reading, it was likely to fail in the House of Lords due to the Labour Party's refusal to support an EU referendum, and even then, it is well recognised that a parliament cannot bind its successor and therefore the entire move was fatuous.

    Having made this point for months if not years, UKIP now points to the string of broken promises by the Conservative Party, and the abject failure of the Liberal Democrats and the Labour Party to reflect the will of the British people.

    It has of course not been a great few weeks for David Cameron:

    1. Britain still owes the EU a whopping £1.7bn, and Mr Cameron's support in Europe over the matter is faltering, with Danish PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt now refusing to back him;
    2. The Tory Party is still at disarray internally over the European Arrest Warrant;
    3. The Tory Minister Nick Boles has admitted that nothing at all can be done about mass migration from the EU as long as we are part of the political union;
    4. The Liberal Democrats have put the boot into their coalition partners and killed the EU Referendum Bill.
