Hustings report: Eastern Region, Monday 21st August

August 23, 2017 // 24 Comments

This was my first time to see the candidates in the flesh. I had been looking forward to this as at one point, all eleven candidates had agreed to come to this event. Sadly, John Rees-Evans’ father passed away last week, so he quite understandably had more important matters to attend to. Peter [...]

UKIP Leadership: Hustings are a Must!

August 12, 2017 // 56 Comments

Eleven candidates. Eleven!! I must admit, when the confirmed applicants for the UKIP leadership post finally appeared in an email yesterday evening, I briefly thought Steve Crowther and Piers Wauchope had accidentally inserted the names of a UKIP charity football team by mistake! In truth, it was a [...]

Battling with the Burka

May 17, 2017 // 34 Comments

I could almost hear the anti-UKIP media cheering wildly as I watched our leader announce the policy of banning the burka.

By sheer fluke of timing, we found [...]

EU sucks Vacuum Cleaners out of The Market

August 22, 2014 // 10 Comments

There is not a lot to like about the EU, but the one thing about the monstrosity that really cheers me up from time to time is the inevitable appearance of an idiotic directive that serves as the perfect UKIP recruiter. Today I have just read about the latest UKIP vote winner – the EU is about to [...]

Fred reminds us what Libertarian means

December 14, 2013 // 4 Comments

I doubt that many remember old Fred Hill now. Back in 1984 he died in prison, aged seventy four, whilst still serving his thirty-first prison sentence! Now, because UKIP is very strong on dealing firmly with perennial recidivists, I expect a good many of you are expecting this article to head down [...]
