  • UKIP: Keep London Black Cab Attacker Behind Bars For Life

    It has emerged in the past two days that female victims of horrific sex crimes have had to hire lawyers to fight a courageous and costly battle to keep London Cab sex attacker, John Worboys, behind bars.

    Late last year they were not informed that Worboys was about to be released by the Parole Board. He was jailed 'indefinitely' in 2009 for sexually assaulting 12 female passengers between 2002 and 2008.

    Richard Bingley, UKIP's Home Affairs spokesperson said: 

    We need a Justice system that serves the victim, not the criminal. The Parole Board chairman should be dismissed for issuing no prior warning, and Worboys should remain in jail until he is carried out in a coffin." 

    Mr Bingley has campaigned for much longer prison sentences for serious violent, sexual or terrorist offenders.

    He added:

    "Early release doesn't work with violent offenders. Public safety and deterrence must be prioritised. When I see so many cases like this, I fear we are beginning to walk into social anarchy and legal meltdown. Let's reassert the right of civil society to live in security and free from fear.”

  • Tory Cuts Have Consequences: Policing in Pairs Makes Us All Safer

    A national survey from the Police Federation has reported that 73% of officers were "single-crewed" often or always.

  • Enough is enough – we must stop treating drivers as cash cows

    Britain’s road policing chief today declared that ‘enough is enough’ as he urged a zero-tolerance policy on speeding motorists.

  • WARRENDER: Government plans to scrap MoT tests on 40 year old cars

    UKIP call for Last Minute rethink on Scrapping the MoT safety test on 40 year old cars. Small business will see £200 Million lost, to say nothing of the safety aspect.

    Against expert advice The Government is determined to press ahead with this dangerous policy.

    40 year old cars capable of speeds up to 150mph and as we all know, susceptible to structural rust, will be allowed on our roads with no MoT test. Why is this cash strapped Government forsaking a revenue source and  putting people’s lives at risk? What is behind it?

  • The unelected Lords Should Not Meddle in Brexit

    UKIP Leader Henry Bolton has today called for the House of Lords to ‘keep to its scrutiny role and otherwise keep out of Brexit’

    The unelected House of Lords should not be meddling in the democratic mandate issued by 17.4 million people, demanding that we leave the European Union. UKIP is opposed to having a completely unelected chamber attempting to pervert democracy.

    Mr Bolton said: “It is quite frankly an affront to democracy for the unelected House of Lords to be meddling in the EU Withdrawal Bill in contradiction to the decision made on 23 June 2016. Who do these people think they are?

    “UKIP has always questioned the relevance of House of Lords in its present form and we believe that any attempt to halt or delay Brexit is wholly unacceptable. It places the House of Lords in opposition to the majority of the British People”.
