  • What promise will the Tories keep on Immigration

    John Bickley, the UKIP Immigration Spokesman has slammed David Davis, the Brexit Minister for giving up before he has started on mass EU immigration.

    Bickley said, "David Davis has let the cat out of the bag by indicating that uncontrolled immigration from the EU will continue after Brexit. That's not what 17.4 million people voted for in last June's EU Referendum. Davis states that it will takes years to replace EU workers with British ones, despite the fact that UK unemployment is still around 1.5 million.

    "Frankly, the Tories can't be trusted to control our borders or immigration. They have singularly failed to reduce immigration to the 'tens of thousands' as set out by Prime Ministers Cameron & May. Are the Tories misleading the British people or are they incompetent? The immigration figures since 2010 suggest both

  • Paul Nuttall announces a New Path for Britain: our direction of travel in key areas

    The Brexit referendum victory has put Britain on a new trajectory – an exciting new path that will allow our country much more freedom to tackle its problems and to seek out new opportunities in the wider world. We are a great country, but one with many problems and frustrations

  • Crackdown on domestic abuse is welcome but let's educate too

    2015_Margot_Preferred_picture.jpgMargot Parker, UKIP's Women's and Equalities spokesman has backed plans to create tougher laws to deal with domestic abuse.

    But the East Midlands MEP has said education is also vital in tackling the problem. The Government has revealed proposals to oversee the creation of new laws to deal with domestic abuse in England and Wales. A new Act would tackle inconsistencies across the country, although it is unclear what shape the new Domestic Violence and Abuse Act might take.

    Margot said: "Domestic abuse is an abhorrent crime – too many women and indeed men, are living in fear of their partners and are living in fear in their own homes. More has to be done. Tougher legislation yes! But we also need to tackle the problem by educating people about abuse and the damage it does.

  • Lords must not become Peter Mandelson's Poodle

    Paul.jpgUKIP Leader Paul Nuttall has warned that Britain will be dragged into its most serious constitutional crisis for over a century if the House of Lords tinkers with Brexit.

    He said: "What we have here is the least democratic forum in British politics potentially interfering with the most democratic one - the result of a referendum.

    "The British people have made their choice. For the Lords - which is stuffed with pro-EU timeservers and from which UKIP has been systematically excluded - to mess around with it would be both outrageous and dangerous.

  • Labour have taken the people of Stoke for granted

    Responding to Jeremy Corbyn's comments in Stoke-on-Trent today, a UKIP Spokesman for the campaign in Stoke Central said: "Labour have taken the people of Stoke for granted. Labour's mass immigration policies have put untold pressure on housing, parents struggle to get the right school place for their children and A&E waiting times are too long.

    "All Labour do is trash our country, sneer at our flag and Jeremy Corbyn refuses to sing the national anthem. They would rather give back the Falklands than build one more Council house; they would prosecute British servicemen rather than condemn the IRA and keep Britain in the EU while ignoring the wishes of the people of Stoke."

  • UKIP Defence Spokesman calls for European countries to increase defence spending

    thumbnail_bill4.jpgUKIP Defence spokesman Bill Etheridge has called for European nations to increase their spending on defence.

    The call comes as news emerged that the UK had failed to meet its pledge of 2% after an increase in GDP.

    European leaders in Brussels received a warning from US Defence secretary Jim Mattis that allies must significantly increase their defense spending “if your nations do not want to see America moderate its commitment to this alliance”.

    Such has been the decline in spending since the break-up of the Soviet Union that the Belgian military was forced to ask the U.S. for hand-me-down flak jackets for its soldiers when it deployed domestically in the wake of terrorist attacks in Paris and Brussels in recent years.
