Drinking Laws Disaster

Drinking Laws Disaster

Sep 22, 2013

September 20, 2013 DRINKING LAWS DISASTER Following the pronouncement by police chiefs that the 24 hour drinking laws have proved a disaster, local MEP Paul Nuttall has voiced support for their findings. And he pointed out that he had previously warned that relaxing the licensing rules would be a mistake.. “This was never going to work in Britain and I said from the start that this Tony Blair government measure should not go ahead. As I predicted it has led to an increase in drunken violence on our streets and placed an enormous strain on police forces,” said Mr Nuttall, UKIP deputy leader. “It has harmed the licensing trade as traditional pubs have actually seen a decline in custom as people, particularly youngsters, get tanked up at home on cheap supermarket booze and then go out around midnight to premises which stay open till 6 am. “As well as totally inebriated youths causing noise and nuisance on our streets there are also incidents of violence, sometimes with fatal results. The government must face the problems caused by round-the-clock drinking laws as a matter of urgency,” said Mr...

Knowsley Gagging-Order Payouts “Obscene”

Knowsley Gagging-Order Payouts “Obscene”

Sep 22, 2013

Dear Editor,   Knowsley Council have some serious explaining to do since it was revealed  that the authority has paid out more than £500,000 in gagging order pay-outs since 2010.   Some of these pay-outs, such as the £114,388 for a member of the Childrens and Family Services directive is nothing short of obscene and spits in the face of the hard pressed residents who are struggling to pay their council tax bills.   This money would have been far better spent on providing vital support for local public services currently facing frontline cuts. £500,000 could have safeguarded a number of low paid council jobs that have already faced the axe.   Residents deserve financial transparency from their council yet it appears that in Knowsley all they get is secretive back handed payments to former employees. I would like to see these outrageous pay-outs brought to an end once and for all.     Yours faithfully   Paul...

Lib Dem Remark “Silly”

Lib Dem Remark “Silly”

Sep 22, 2013

Dear Editor,   I was extremely amused at the silly remark made by the LibDem MEP Leader Fiona Hall against UKIP Leader, Nigel Farage MEP – “Nigel Mirage” – alleging that he spent little time in the European Parliament.   Nigel is actually one of the hardest working MEP’s, averaging around 18 hours every day often including weekends and extensive travel in order to spread the message, that our membership of the European Parliament is an expensive folly which serves nothing less than to nod through the directives of the unelected EU Commissioners.   The sad thing is, that Fiona Hall and her Liberal Democrats along with the Conservatives and Labour are living in fantasy-land if they believe that EU is good for British interests, and are costing us a fortune in their determination to keep us in it.   Fiona Hall can name call as much as she likes, but Nigel Farage is in the real world and the only party leader speaking out for for the interests of Britain. The only mirage he can be compared to is a Mirage jet.   Yours faithfully   Philip Griffiths, North West...

We Must Not Be Cowed by The Left – Harper

We Must Not Be Cowed by The Left – Harper

Sep 22, 2013

Dear fellow-UKIP-members and supporters,   By now, most people will be aware of yesterday’s incident, involving UKIP’s Yorkshire MEP, Godfrey Bloom. What we all need to bear in mind is the following: –   This was just one of many on-going attempts by a nasty, small-minded, bunch of left-wing extremists in the media who are determined to pursue their agenda of forcing British subservience to the EU, and to ensure that unlimited mass-immigration into Britain continues unabated.   We need to confront these people head on. Where we are challenged by such people, we should respond by standing our ground, looking them straight in the eye, and asking them the following questions: –   Name one policy that UKIP has which could be deemed “racist”. Wanting to apply selective controls on immigration is mainly about ensuring that only those with skills we need in Britain are allowed in. It is also about preventing entry by terrorists, criminals and those who are motivated to come here simply to fleece our benefits system and make free use of our taxpayer-funded NHS. Neither of these motives is “racist”: we have never suggested, and never will suggest, that people should be denied access on the basis of the colour of their skin. Do you believe that the application of any form of control to restrict unlimited mass immigration is wrong? None of the old parties wants to even talk about this issue: UKIP represents the common-sense view of the overwhelming majority of normal people. It is the Political Class – mainly consisting of detached and deluded, privileged, boys and girls from Public Schools – who have used Political Correctness and racist slurs to crush free speech, who are the enemies of the British people. Due in very large part to the efforts and determination of active UKIP members, people across the land are finally waking up to this fact. This is what terrifies the PC brigade, and what motivates them to constantly insult, harangue and harass us. Well, guess what? WE WILL NOT BETRAY THE BRITISH PEOPLE AND ALLOW THE ONLY CHANCE OUR COUNTRY HAS OF REGAINING THE POWER OF SELF-GOVERNANCE TO BE DESTROYED BY THESE NASTY, SMALL-MINDED....
