Rumours of the demise of UKIP are greatly exaggerated

The following article is the opinion of the author and does not necessarily represent the official view of the party

Uxbridge street stall Oct 2013 with MS MG and Ilyas
It is often said that a week is a long time in politics – with the events of the last seven days it has certainly seemed that way!

Following on from the surprise resignation of leader Diane James MEP after just 18 days in the role, we have now seen media headlines surrounding an altercation between two of our MEP’s in the EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

The Party is currently investigating what actually happened and as such it would be wrong for me to speculate before that investigation is concluded. I feel sure that we all wish Steven Woolfe MEP, a personal friend and a thoroughly decent man, a speedy recovery.

UKIP respond to the latest ONS migration figures

The number of Romanians and Bulgarians working in the UK has risen by 15% year-on-year, official figures have revealed.

UKIP Migration spokesman Steven Woolfe MEP said:  “I am sure that the residents of the UK will be as alarmed by these ridiculously high numbers of people coming into Britain, as I am. UKIP warned that opening the door to Romania and Bulgaria on January 1st would lead to more economic refugees into the country. The politically correct establishment condemned us at the time – But we were right.
“Until our political elites state categorically that  EU membership is a major cause of the UK’s wage lowering, uncontrolled, mass migration and broken, unsecured borders they will continue to fail the British people. Our national public infrastructure, services and finances will continue to take the strain of hundreds of thousands of new EU residents in Britain each year. When it comes to immigration, voting Conservative or Labour equals the same outcome. Open borders and hundreds of thousands of EU citizens coming and going into Britain as they please.  The pressure on  schools, hospitals and roads is increasing. It is time we took back control of our borders and who comes into our country  – But this can only happen by voting UKIP.”

Cameron has failed on Migration

An update from UKIP Migration spokesman, Steven Woolfe MEP

 

CAMERON AND THE CONSERVATIVES
‘ LOSE THE PLOT ‘ ON MIGRATION
Last week, I appeared on BBC news attacking Cameron on the latest disastrous migration figures.  Newly released ONS figures prove that David Cameron has lost the plot on immigration control. The figures showed that last year up to March, net migration was up from 175,000 to 243,000, an increase of 68,000. Those are just the net figures; more than half a million people came into the country.

The Conservative party pledged to cut net migration to the tens of thousands and once again they have failed. They are trying to mislead the public over migration, but the people of this country are not fools. It is now their biggest concern as all the polling is now showing. Mass migration at this level is not sustainable for the economy and its infrastructure. Only UKIP are offering a fair, outward looking and ethical migration policy, with proper border controls and control of the numbers who enter and settle in this country.
