  • UKIP opposed to harmonising drink driving limits with the rest of Europe

    Posted on February 10

    Nigel_Twitter.jpegThe drink-driving limit in England and Wales could be slashed by a third - making it illegal to drive after just one pint of beer or a glass of wine, it has been suggested. Transport Minister Andrew Jones has suggested Westminster could follow the example of Scotland which lowered the limit from 80mg per 100ml of blood to 50mg in 2014. The new limit is equivalent to a pint of beer or a large glass of wine for men and half a pint or a small glass for women.

    UKIP Leader Nigel Farage: “I am completely opposed to harmonising drink driving limits with the rest of Europe. They have much lower penalties than we do.

    "It's clear that a combination of lower limits and higher penalties will lead to the closure of thousands more pubs in villages and small towns across the country. Everybody knows that drink driving is dangerous but this draconian act will have huge adverse social implications."

  • UKIP supports Grassroots Out in its bid for 'Leave' campaign designation

    Posted on February 09

    vY0_0G_F.jpgToday, the National Executive Committee of UKIP, along with its MEPs and its Local Councillors Association announced that they would be backing the application of the Grassroots Out campaign in its bid to be recognised by the Electoral Commission as the lead 'Leave' group in the forthcoming referendum on the UK's membership of the EU.

    UKIP Party Chairman Steve Crowther said, "We have been hoping and working for a rapprochement between the two main contenders for the designation, Vote.Leave and Leave.EU. Unfortunately that has proved elusive. Meanwhile, Grassroots Out has emerged as the genuinely cross party, well organised, energetic campaigning group, which has the momentum and is drawing in support from all quarters. We felt it was time to make a decision and get out on the campaign trail."

    Drivers are almost certainly set to be hit in the wallet after a £3 billion hole was discovered in George Osborne’s spending plans, warns Paul Nuttall MEP.

    The independent think tank, the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), has found a gaping £3 billion black hole in Osborne’s spending plans. The IFS says the most likely way for Mr Osborne to fill that gap would be to increase fuel duty – despite the Tories’ 2015 general election manifesto promising not to do that.

    Mr Nuttall, MEP for the North West and Ukip deputy leader, said: “As normal, the greedy eyes of Number 11 Downing Street have got motorists in their sights

  • Diane James calls for Electoral Reform

    Posted on February 09

    IMG_2948.JPGSpeaking at the PR Alliance Building Conference in Westminster organised by ‘Make Votes Matter’, UKIP’s Justice and Home Affairs spokesman Diane James MEP said UKIP’s experience of 3.8 million votes and only MP elected in the 2015 General Election was clear evidence of why electoral reform was necessary.

    In her speech Diane said electoral reform was not just needed for Westminster Parliamentary elections but also at a grassroots level for local election too. She cited her experience as a Borough Council whereby 56 were taken by Conservatives with her as the sole opposition (a total Council of 57 councillors) yet the Conservatives received only just over 50% of the vote. This meant that nearly 45% of voters had no political representation to show for making the effort to vote.
