An Open Letter to Nigel Farage

Dear Nigel

I have listened intently to your commentary on LBC this weekend concerning the direction of UKIP.

As somebody who has always been a big fan of yours I believe that your intentions are genuine but, on this occasion, your conclusions are incorrect.

Let me elaborate

Firstly, you state that the Brexit march on 9th December is a UKIP rather than a cross party event. This is not a correct assessment. Whilst UKIP members will be involved and both Gerard Batten and Lord Pearson will be on the list of speakers, it was always intended to be a march for Brexiteers from all parts of the spectrum – this was made clear yesterday in an email from The Party Chairman which states

“The planned march on 9th December was not organised by UKIP but members are free to attend should they wish.”

Which brings us on to your concern about the risk of violence at the event which could negatively impact on the Brexit campaign.

You stated that the involvement of Tommy Robinson will attract thugs who will carry out acts of violence and that previous events that he has been involved in have seen arrests and Police Horses attacked. As somebody who has been active in street politics since 2010 with a number of groups, I have indeed seen some unpleasant scenes at events – but these are invariably triggered and mainly perpetrated by the regressive left, most notably the likes of AntiFA and the UAF.

Take, for example, two marches by The Football Lads Alliance. In 2017, seventy thousand turned out on the streets of London to protest against extremism, grooming gangs and the treatment of our armed forces veterans. There were people of all backgrounds involved, including a large veterans contingent. With a very small number on the counter demonstration from ‘Stand up to Racism’, there was not one arrest.

Contrast this with their successor organisation, the DFLA, doing the same march this year. Around two thousand counter demonstrators turned up from AntiFA, UAF, SUTR and the Trade Unions – Police were attacked, as were women and children on the main march. Scuffles erupted down Whitehall as the counter demonstrators ran riot. Yet the mainstream media reported it as ‘violence at a far right rally’. You can see my report on the event here –

How Britain suffered a second “1066”

A guest post from UKIP Reigate’s Peter Lindsay

As we face a Fake Brexit, we should ponder just how it has come about that while nearly 60% of us (if you adjust the actual % vote for Brexit – 52% – for the fear factor generated by Project Fear) want an independent Britain, 85% of our “representatives” (sic) in Parliament – those MPs who supported Remain – want our continued subservience to a foreign power. Are these really our representatives?

One might also ponder why it is that the same representatives have allowed mass immigration over the last 70 years to change the culture of this country, without even asking the native population whether they wanted this. The explanation is that we have been beaten in a bloodless war. To explain:

Britain has not been conquered by a foreign invader for nearly a thousand years. Not militarily, that is. But you can just as effectively “take over” a country by other means. This can be done by either (1) successfully taking over its vital institutions as a precursor to government, or (2) a revolution or coup d’etat. An example of (1) was the aftermath of the Boer War: although the British won the war, the vital institutions – media, education, civil service, local government etc. were all run by the Afrikaaners, who were the majority white population and by the 1920s they had taken over the government. An example of (2) was the Russian Revolution or French Revolution but such coups can happen over time and even without violence.

In the 20th century, Britain suffered a “pincer” attack from both outside – (2) and within – (1). Like a vice closing. Whereas our glorious Royal Navy and RAF had always beaten off a foreign invader, we found ourselves wide open to these more subtle attacks and so we were eventually beaten by them.

Labour play the politics of division in Uxbridge

It is no secret that Labour are agitating to get a General Election sooner rather than later, using BREXIT amongst other issues to drive their political agenda rather than actually having anything positive to contribute to a vital time in our country’s history.

To this end, they are selecting candidates to stand up and down the country already with the hope that by sabotaging our country’s future they can take control in Westminster and push the hard left agenda of Corbyn and McDonnell in to Downing Street.

A few weeks ago in Uxbridge, Ali Milani was selected to stand against the Conservative encumbent, Boris Johnson,(left) in what will be a hotly contested constituency if the boundary changes that are proposed become reality. Currently sitting on a majority of five and a half thousand, projections show a majority as thin as 500 if those changes come in to place, with Boris losing four solid Conservative wards , gaining two (Including the small ward of Harefield) but decisively also gaining two solid Labour wards that are in the London Borough of Ealing to create the new ‘Uxbridge & Hillingdon’ constituency.

Since his selection, Milani has had a lot to say – below is his latest piece from ‘Labour list’ with my comments in italics under his musings –

 

The world today is a very different place to what most of us may have expected just a few years ago. The rise of populism, Brexit and politicians such as Donald Trump means we all live in a distinctly different political and social environment. A little over two weeks ago, I was selected by Labour Party members as the candidate to take on the man who has anointed himself leader of this new right-wing, populist political trend here in the UK – Boris Johnson.

UKIP announce new ‘Shadow cabinet’ – should have gone to IKEA?

As regular visitors to this blog will know, I resigned from UKIP a couple of months ago after becoming despondent at the shambolic way it was being run by certain people in positions of influence.

However, I still have many good friends in the party and believe in the core messages of its constitution and basic principles.

Henry Bolton deserves for those remaining to give him a chance but I can’t say I have been bowled over by his media appearances so far – I also realise that in the post Farage era that the party needs a decent team around the leader to make a solid impact. With this in mind I was very interested in the announcement scheduled for today of the new ‘shadow cabinet’ where he had a chance to stamp his own personality on to the leadership – however, I have to say it is more deckchairs on the Titanic than Nelson advancing on Trafalgar.

Below are my opinions on the appointments from my inside knowledge of those within the halls of power at UKIP –

A message to the people of Hayes

Hayes, Heathrow Villages and West Drayton can be wonderful places.

I remember when Hayes FC played at Church Road, when we had EMI, Nestles and Fairey Aviation supplying good jobs, when we had a community spirit and hope.

It is time for a change and to throw off twenty years of a Labour MP who cares more about political ideology than a unified and successful local community.

This General Election has been called because the Prime Minster says she needs a solid mandate to make sure that our exit from the EU (BREXIT) is carried out correctly.

The reality is very different – we only got the EU Referendum because of the electoral threat of UKIP and the majority of Conservative MP’s (The PM included) backed the remain side in the campaign.

Snap General Election – YOU can help!

Theresa May’s decision to call a General Election on June 8th caught many by surprise, although I had been suspicious for months.

With the date set, UKIP now need to gear up quickly to fight an effective, targeted campaign.

I will once again be standing in Hayes & Harlington against John McDonnell with our choice of candidate for the other two Hillingdon seats to be announced in the coming days.

Unlike the establishment political parties, we don’t have big corporate backers or trade unions to supply us with the funds to run a campaign and instead rely on the generosity of ordinary citizens to fund our People’s Army.

This is where you can help.

£30 buys us enough paper to print an election address for a council ward within a Parliamentary constituency.

£180 will pay for a glossy A4 candidate leaflet for 5000 doors, whilst £40 will pay to deliver 1000 leaflets when our activists are stretched.

£500 will fund an election deposit, refundable if we get 5% or more of the vote. (We got double figure percentages in all three seats at the last General Election)

Can YOU help and ensure that UKIP can continue to drive the political agenda and hold the government to account?

If so, you can donate via the link here (Scroll down to the donate button at the bottom of the page)

http://www.ukiphillingdon.com/?page_id=9272

Alternatively, get in touch and we can inform you of how to pay by cheque or bank transfer on 07939 223659

All donations, no matter how large or small, are gratefully accepted and will be put to very good use.
Theresa May and the Tories cannot be trusted to deliver a clean BREXIT without UKIP there to keep them honest – after all, we would not have had the EU Referendum without a strong party driving the agenda. What’s more, she has already ringfenced foreign aid whilst children are in poverty and families depend on food banks at home, has U turned on the Third Runway at Heathrow , wants to keep the European Arrest Warrant (Which means the European Court will have precedence over our own) and is going soft on migration where her own track record is already poor.

Labour are no alternative – Corbyn and McDonnell want to keep open door migration (Putting additional stress on the NHS, schools and housing), are financially incompetent and would leave our country defenceless in the face of international terrorism and an increasingly unstable world.

On June 8th, we need a strong UKIP vote to help our country achieve the bright future that beckons outside the EU – please help us to ensure that it happens.

 

UKIP – Job done or only just started?

With the resignation of both Douglas Carswell and Mark Reckless, many in the media are now saying that UKIP has achieved its goal and it is no longer relevant on the political landscape.

Indeed, the aforementioned Mr Carswell has been gloating on his Twitter feed about a council byelection in his area where the Tories have taken a seat from UKIP , claiming that many Kippers think ‘job done’.

So, what is the reality? With the triggering of Article 50 and the initial founding reason for UKIP (Leaving the EU) looking like a reality, what have UKIP got left to offer?
