  • UKIP London Assembly Member David Kurten responds to the latest immigration figures

    Posted on May 26

    DavidKurtenWeb.jpgDavid Kurten AM responding to the immigration figures said,

    "With net immigration now hitting 333,000 per year, it is clear that the present government has no plan to reduce immigration to sustainable levels. London is in the midst of a serious housing crisis and the transport network, primary schools, surgeries and hospitals are bursting at the seams.

    "With the population of London now expected to grow by another million in the next 8 years, the situation and quality of life for Londoners will continue to deteriorate. In the Mayor’s question time yesterday, the new Mayor refused to commit to building 80,000 homes per year as was reportedly in his manifesto.

  • UKIP response to latest immigration figures

    Posted on May 26

    Nigel_Farage.jpegNet migration to Britain has increased to the second highest level on record, official figures reveal. The figure - the difference between the number of people arriving and leaving - was estimated at 333,000 for the year ending December 2015. This was 10,000 higher than the level recorded in the year to September. Net migration of EU citizens was estimated at 184,000 - up compared to the previous year when it stood at 174,000, and the joint highest figure on record.

    Statisticians said the apparent increase in EU net migration was largely due to a rise in net migration of citizens from Bulgaria and Romania, from 44,000 to 58,000.

    Responding to the latest immigration figures UKIP Leader Nigel Farage said, "Mass immigration is still hopelessly out of control and set to get worse if we Remain inside the EU, going on with disastrous open borders. However, I don't believe these official figures and I'm sure the real numbers are much higher."

  • UKIP London Assembly member Peter Whittle - Education is not enough, police prosecutions needed to stamp out the appalling practice of FGM

    Posted on May 25

    PWWEBFGM.jpgToday at his first Mayor's Question Time at City Hall UKIP London Assembly member Peter Whittle asked the Mayor, Sadiq Khan, about the prospect of bringing about the prosecution of the perpetrators of female genital mutilation (FGM) and asked whether he would ensure that the Metropolitan Police Service bring to bear the full force of the law on the perpetrators of this appalling practice.

    In his question Peter Whittle noted that between 2009 and 2014, 4,000 women and girls in London were treated for FGM, yet, despite being a crime, of which there is a much increased public awareness, there has yet to be a successful prosecution.

    Replying to Peter Whittle's question the new Mayor of London Sadiq Khan agreed with Peter that that it was disappointing that there has been no successful prosecution and that it was a form of violence against women and girls. In his reply he said that education would be the most effective tool to deal with the issue of FGM.

    Posted on May 23

    PETER.jpgPeter Whittle AM, the UKIP Group leader on the London Assembly has today criticised the flying of the EU flag at City Hall today. This is the first time it has been flown outside City Hall. 

    The usual protocol was to have a Union Flag flanked by two City Hall flags, one of which was occasionally changed during state visits or in solidarity with countries which had suffered terror attacks. 

    Peter Whittle said, "I was amazed today to discover that one of the first acts of Sadiq Khan has been to order the flying of the EU flag from City Hall. He just couldn't wait to display where his true loyalties lie. It is extraordinary.
