It is UKIP’s intention to field candidates only in constituencies where we feel we can provide a positive impact. While many would wish us to aim for as many seats as possible, for the party, Brexit is the priority. As such, we shall only be approving candidates for areas where there is no clear Clean-Brexit Leaver standing.
Sadly, it seems that we are once again fighting for something that we already won in the 2016 referendum. The inability of a significant portion of Parliament to accept that historic result has meant three and a half years of turmoil, inactivity, and a loss of faith in the government. Yet we shall not be disheartened, and we shall not stop.
With the announcement that Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party will not be fielding a full slate of candidates, it appears that the Brexit Party has now caught up with UKIP’s flagship policy of ensuring Brexit finally happens.
We believe it is every person’s right to have a candidate in their area that advocates a Clean-Break Brexit.
