    "Whilst firmly believing that small business is beautiful, my ambitions for this sector are large.

This will be achieved, in no small part, by SME companies and as the only national political spokesman for Small Business, representing a committed Brexit voice of the future, not a committed Remain voice of the past, I will ensure this voice is heard on behalf of all UK Small Businesses."

  • UKIP Deputy Leader Peter Whittle AM reappointed Culture Spokesman

    PeterWhittleRole.jpgUKIP Deputy Leader Peter Whittle AM said, "I am delighted to be carrying on with my role as Culture Spokesman. Some of the biggest issues of our time are cultural ones and UKIP is the only party which realises this fully.

    "Upholding the supremacy of British Law, and the need to maintain our precious freedom of speech are just two of the issues I will continue to highlight and fight for.

  • Stuart Agnew reappointed Agriculture Spokesman

    StuartAgnewRole.jpgStuart Agnew MEP said, "I have been hoping that I would retain this portfolio under our new leader Paul Nuttall, and I am delighted that this has happened. The role affords me the opportunity to indirectly influence Agriculture policy post Brexit, even if it does mean seeing my ideas poached and marketed under a different colour. It is not just farmers who are irritated by magpies!

    "Support, trade, regulation and access to labour are the four big topics to which British farmers require answers. With a lifetime of experience in mixed farming enterprises I understand what they need, and will do all I can to ensure that they are treated fairly."

  • Official figures prove you can't trust Tories on immigration

    thumbnail_paul_trust.jpgUKIP Leader Paul Nuttall MEP said, "These figures just go to show that you can't trust the Tories to bring down immigration.

    "This is an abject failure not just by the Government in general but by the Prime Minister in particular.

    "After six and a half years of Tory rule, we still have net migration running at more than 300,000. Another city the size of Hull added to our population. More pressure on housing, schools and the NHS.

    "The PM is called Theresa May. Sometimes I wonder if she has a secret twin called Theresa May Not. Because she never seems to deliver - on immigration, on Brexit or on anything".

    UKIP Immigration Spokesman John Bickley said, "Despite years of promises to get immigration down to 'tens of thousands' the Tories' record under Theresa May as Prime Minister, and previously as Home Secretary, has been a history of failure.

    "Everything that UKIP have said is coming true, particularly in reference to the number of those coming from Bulgaria and Romania.

  • Mark Reckless AM reappointed as UKIP’s Economics Spokesman

  • UKIP MEP Jill Seymour reappointed as Transport Spokesman

    JillSeymourRole.jpgJill Seymour said: “I would like to thank the new UKIP leader Paul Nuttall for renewing my Transport brief. I will continue to work tirelessly on raising media and political awareness of projects which our taxpayers either don’t need, or can’t afford.

    “HS2 is right at the top of my list, it doesn’t have a solid business case, and is costing tens of billions of pounds that we don’t have.

    “I will continue to lead UKIP’s fight against this vanity project – it will benefit a tiny minority, but will be paid for by the majority. It’s not too late to come to our senses, and scrap it.”

    "I will also be a champion for a more just and equitable foreign policy across the globe, and re-establishing our links with our Commonwealth cousins."
