    SteveWoolfe.jpgUKIP's Migration Spokesman Steven Woolfe has responded to an article from the Prime Minister today by branding the government's immigration approach as "cynical and vacuous".

    Steven Woolfe said: "Once again we have David Cameron attempting to sound tough on immigration. It is nothing more than a cynical and vacuous attempt to fool the British public.

    "Cameron says nobody can be entitled to something for nothing - yet he still wants migrants to be able to claim benefits for three months having contributed nothing.

    She said: “It makes you wonder if those at the top of the NHS really care about patients at all.

    “As a body funded by the public, those running the NHS should not pay more redundancy than the statutory cap.

    “These gilt edged redundancy payments have cost £108million more than they should have, that’s enough money to hire over 7,500 extra nurses.

    UKIP has picked up another seat on Doncaster Council after a stunning by-election win last night with over 40% of the vote.

    Paul Bissettt won the seat, winning it from Labour with the Conservatives trailing in a distant third.

    UKIP Deputy Leader Paul Nuttall said: "This is yet another sign of how UKIP is now the real opposition to Labour in many of their former heartlands. It is UKIP which is talking about the things people care about: controlling our borders, getting out of the EU and putting our own people first.

    "The message is clear to Ed Miliband and the Labour Party: we are taking the fight to you in your backyard.

    "The country will be able to hear much more from UKIP at our biggest ever Conference which will take place at Doncaster Racecourse on September 26th - 27th."

    Full details of UKIP's September Conference are here.
