  • EU vacuum ban will make life harder for house-proud Brits

    Posted on August 22

    124964.jpgPeople planning to buy a powerful vacuum cleaner have been advised by Louise Bours MEP to act quickly before an EU ban comes into force.

    From September 1 companies will be prohibited from manufacturing or importing any vacuum cleaners with motors above 1,600 watts.

    "This is being done in the name of tackling climate change but the reality is it will do nothing to help and just make life harder for house-proud Brits," said Ms Bours, UKIP Euro-MP.

    "The reality is this EU legislation just sucks and is another reminder of why we need to leave the European Union.

    "The average vacuum cleaner currently on the market in this country has a 1,800W motor but the ever-interfering EU bureaucrats want to limit them to 1,600 from next month. And from 2017 they will be limited even further, down to 900W.

  • Strip Islamic State Jihadists of British citizenship

    Posted on August 20

    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 Jihadists whose only nationality is British could have their passports withdrawn and those who do not hold UK citizenship but have been granted the right to live here should immediately have that right revoked.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.

    Posted on August 18


    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.

  • BBC Panorama programme planning new establishment attack against UKIP

    Posted on August 15

    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.

  • A-Levels dumbed down to make money

    Posted on August 15

    A-level students are being sold short by a profit-seeking education ‘industry’ - says UKIP’s National Education spokesman, after it was announced that this year's A-level pass rates are at over 98%.

    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.
