• UKIP Deputy Chairman Suzanne Evans to take break from politics

    SuzanneEvansPort.pngEarlier this year, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had surgery in April, just a few days before Theresa May called the general election, and so I put my plans to take time out to rest and recover on hold.

    "Now the election is over, I intend to take a holiday from active politics, at least until the autumn.

  • May’s lifeboat coalition must not compromise the most important goal of Brexit – border control

    The disastrous May Election must not be allowed to derail the Brexit process or lead to a watering-down of the people’s primary objective – taking back control over the nation’s borders – said UKIP interim leader Steve Crowther.

    “Though she is personally damaged as our negotiator, the suggestion that Mrs May’s dismal electoral performance relieves the government of the need to achieve full Brexit is absolutely unacceptable," he said.

  • Statement from Steve Crowther as he is appointed UKIP Interim Leader

    I am honoured to have been asked by the NEC to stand in as Interim Leader for the next few weeks until our new Party Leader is elected.

    I respect Paul’s decision to step down, though I regret that he has not had time to show his full potential. In recent weeks he has started to really resonate with members of the party, and the public at large, with his robust messages on security and integration.

  • Statement from Paul Nuttall MEP

    Paul Nuttall MEP today issued the following statement: "This morning, I wrote to the Party Chairman to inform of him of my decision to resign as the Leader of UKIP, with immediate effect.

    "When I took over at the end of last year, with the support of so many of you, I had a plan to unite and rebuild our party. I always knew that in the first year, we would face a difficult set of local elections but I was confident that with a summer of reform we could work on refocusing our party on a new future.

  • Why you, your family and your friends should vote UKIP today, by Party Leader Paul Nuttall


    There are times in politics, as in life, that it is great to be vindicated.

    Last year’s Referendum result was one of those times, where the nation voted clearly to leave the European Union, a position that I and Ukip had been laughed at and derided for only a couple of years earlier.

  • Time to ban the Muslim Brotherhood and its promotion of an extremist world view

    UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall has today called for the hardline Islamist organisation, the Muslim Brotherhood, to be proscribed and its activities and related institutions in the UK to be investigated.

  • Even when the establishment attacks us, we will continue the fight to keep Britain safe


    UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall MEP held his final press conference before polling day in Westminster this morning with a strong message on national security and a rebuke for those who have attacked the party for wanting to protect Britain.

    This is what Paul had to say:

    It is clear from the terrorist atrocities over the past month that the government is struggling to protect its own citizens.

    And during this election campaign it has emerged that our security and intelligence services are at any one time engaged in thwarting five hundred potential terror plots.

  • Labour "needed to stop making excuses for Muslims in Britain."

    Jane Collins MEP, the UKIP Home Affairs Spokesman "Why does Emily Thornberry not think that the Muslim community should consider itself part of the rest of the country and report people who wish to kill and maim?

    "The Casey report on integration in the UK highlighted the failures in integration and made many recommendations and said that Governments have failed for more than a decade to ensure that social integration in the UK has kept up with the “unprecedented pace and scale of immigration” and have allowed some local communities to become increasingly divided.

  • London attack: Paul Nuttall statement

    UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall, "With more people murdered on the streets of our capital city last night by Islamist terrorists, it is more important than ever for us to confront this evil with the democratic principles that have made this country what it is.

    "Our hearts go out to the family and friends of those who lost their lives last night. The courage and quick response of our emergency services have yet again saved countless lives and in the midst of such a tragedy, deserve our respect and admiration.

    "It is time to start honouring our dead with more than just words. The only guarantee that will come from our choosing to stall the democratic process again will be more attacks; it is what these cowards want us to do.

    "For those of us seeking to serve the people of this country, it is our duty to drive the dialogue on how best to confront and defeat this brand of terrorism. That is what UKIP will be doing today and beyond. Therefore, I refuse to suspend campaigning because this is precisely what the extremists would want us to do."
