UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall said: “Mrs May doesn’t have much of a Brexit plan to start with but Labour’s plans are even worse than hers.
“Mrs May intends to fudge exit so we leave in name but not in reality, Labour’s plan is to not even pretend to have left. Under their plans, we might as well not even bother. This is as near as you can get to staying in without remaining within the EU.
“Their fixation on going back and back to Parliament is merely cover for a desire to block Brexit and at best will hearten the EU to play the hardest ball possible during the next two years of negotiations.
“UKIP is the only party with a policy for leaving the EU quickly, cleanly and completely. Brexit must mean Exit.”Continue reading...

UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall, Deputy Leader Peter Whittle, Education Spokesman David Kurten and Women's and Equality Spokesman Margot Parker today launched the broad UKIP integration agenda.
UKIP Deputy Leader and Culture Spokesman Peter Whittle has renewed calls for a total ban on face coverings in a public place:
"UKIP are the only political party committed to passing a law against the wearing of face coverings in public places. Face coverings are a deliberate barrier to integration and, in many contexts, a security risk too. The time has come to outlaw them. People should show their face in a public place. This is a policy that is already enacted in France, Belgium, Holland and Austria, and in parts of Spain, Italy, Denmark, Latvia and Lithuania in Europe alone. It is a normal, modern and reasonable response to a problem faced today.
"We are also calling for postal voting on demand to be scrapped and a return to a higher threshold of demonstrable need before a postal vote is granted. Postal votes on demand have led to a boom in electoral fraud and vote-stealing, especially among minority communities.Continue reading...

UKIP Defence Spokesman Cllr Bill Etheridge MEP has called Jeremy Corbyn's defence policy "an incoherent mess which would throw the UK into huge security difficulties."Continue reading...
Cllr Etheridge was "shocked" that Mr Corbyn would not want to eliminate the leader of ISIS."
"How can it be a tough decision not to kill al-Baghdadi when he leads an inhumane, murderous death cult? The people of Mosul might have a few words to say to Mr Corbyn about that."

UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall writes, "What does a party leader go into a general election hoping for? That’s normally a pretty easy question to answer – as many votes as possible for his party at the expense of every other party and every other candidate in the field.
"But at this general election it is a lot more complicated than that. Because UKIP was set up to restore Britain’s status as a self-governing democracy and this election comes with that ambition tantalisingly within reach.
"Generations of UKIP activists campaigned and leafleted through wind and rain with the ambition of getting our country out of the EU. And some never lived to see the glorious day when our magnificent referendum victory was confirmed.
"In memory of such people and to be true to the founding principles of my party I must ensure that we work at all times to advance the practical cause of Brexit in Parliament, in the country at large and in the negotiating chambers of the European Union.
"That means, to put it in shorthand, adhering to the principle of country before party in the changed political circumstances that pertain today.Continue reading...
