We need your help this weekend in two major by-election action days in Clacton and Heywood. With the campaign in both areas getting well under way we need your help to make sure we get Douglas Carwell and John Bickley elected as UKIP MPs.
We need as many boots on the ground so we can see off the Tories and the other parties. If we can cover both constituencies with activists this weekend it will be a massive step towards winning our first MPs.
Here are the details you need:
Campaign in Clacton, meeting at 9am at the Campaign office this Saturday before going out leafleting and canvassing in the constituency. The address is: 105 Station Road, Clacton-on-Sea, CO15 1TW.

If you can’t make it to Clacton on Saturday, help out in Heywood by coming along to the action day on Sunday, meeting at the Campaign office. The action day begins a 11am at the campaign office which is located at 27 Market Place, Heywood, Lancashire, OL10 1LA. It is open every day from 9am till late.

"It is a sorry situation when politics plunges to these depths.
"As Scotland's First Minister who wants to become the first leader of an independent Scotland it is surely Alex Salmond's job to publicly demand calm and law abiding behaviour to ensure a free and fair referendum tomorrow."Continue reading...
