UKIP’s local government spokesman Peter Reeve writing for the Local Government sets out our party’s local priorities:
"Services are stretched due to the government’s irresponsible commitment to an EU open door immigration policy; UKIP will change this and put local people first. We want to keep the NHS free and oppose Labour and Conservative attempts to privatise it. UKIP will also prevent developers from concreting over the countryside, protect our pensioners, look after our veterans and help our young people seeking work while opposing parking charges and road tolls."
In his article Cllr Reeve also makes clear that: "One of the key principles of being a UKIP councillor is that they are there to represent the people, not our political party, which is why we operate a no-whip policy in local government. A UKIP councillor is like an independent councillor, but with big party backing."
