UKIP and a Second EU Referendum

January 13, 2018 // 22 Comments

I was shocked and appalled, like most UKIPPERs, that Nigel Farage conceded that a second EU Referendum could be held. He made his comments on the Wright Stuff daytime TV show on January 11th 2018, and it caused such a backlash that he spent the rest of the day backtracking on what he had said. [...]

What is UKIP’s future?

January 10, 2018 // 88 Comments

When UKIP was founded over twenty-four years ago, the people in the room did so with two main objectives: to make UKIP a force in national politics, and to bring about the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union. The second was dependent on the first.  Following the General Election in 2015 we [...]

On Thursday 11th May, I attended a joint-hearing of three Committees in Brussels.  The Civil Liberties Justice and Home Affairs, Petitions and Employment and Social Affairs, Committees. I spend over three hours listening to various assorted Europhiles, Remainers, Remoaners, and Quislings, [...]

Comments on the Supreme Court’s Judgement on Article 50

January 24, 2017 // 11 Comments

[Ed: This article has been reproduced from Gerard Batten MEP’s website, with the kind permission of the author] The Supreme Court’s decision could be viewed as something of a non-event in that it ruled that HM Government must hold a vote in Parliament to trigger Article 50 – something [...]

Brexit, Article 50 & The Supreme Court’s Nelsonian Eye

December 10, 2016 // 10 Comments

Executive Summary If the Supreme Court upholds the High Court’s decision in Miller, it will open up debate about use of the Royal Prerogative, and in particular whether the UK’s original accession to the EEC really was sufficient to make European law supreme over domestic law. The judiciary are [...]

Brexit or Exit? – Gerard Batten MEP

November 9, 2016 // 12 Comments

The EU Referendum posed a simple, clear question: should we remain in the EU or leave? It was not qualified in any way. There was no condition that leaving depended on some mythical ‘deal’, or remaining in the Single Market, or any other qualification. 17.4 Million people voted to leave by a [...]

What Next for UKIP?

October 14, 2016 // 16 Comments

UKIP and UKIP alone brought about the historic Referendum, and UKIP, despite all the odds, was predominantly responsible for achieving the historic result.  UKIP achieved the most remarkable political victory of any small political party in the history of our democracy. And having done all of [...]

Brexit must mean Brexit!

September 30, 2016 // 7 Comments

I am assuming that everyone here wants to leave the European Union. Is that correct? That being the case I would like to ask you three questions. 1. How many of you want to leave the EU as quickly as possible? 2. How many of you would like us to keep open borders with the EU? 3. How many of you [...]

Nothing to do with Islam

July 31, 2016 // 8 Comments

The information below was sent to me by the Rev. Peter Mullen.  It is truly shocking and worth repeating. The European mass media has devoted hundreds of hours and thousands of pages to the murder of an elderly priest in Normandy.  Understandable, because this occurred in our own backyard. But [...]
