Stoke candidate announced

Stoke candidate announced

Jan 21, 2017

Paul Nuttall MEP has been announced as UKIP’s candidate for the forthcoming Stoke-on-Trent Central by-election.  At 11.00 this morning, we announced that our Party Leader, Paul Nuttall, would be UKIP’s candidate for the forthcoming by-election in Stoke-on-Trent Central, on Thursday 23 February. Thanks to the Stoke-on-Trent branch and the great Mick Harold, who came only 5000 votes behind Tristram Hunt in 2015 but has gallantly ceded the candidacy to Paul, we now have the chance to see our Leader elected to Westminster for the first time. It really can happen. Though Mick’s fantastic campaign pushed the Tories into third place by just 33 votes (0.2%) last time, our private polling shows that with Paul as our candidate we are only a handful of points behind Corbyn’s Labour – with the Conservatives stuck some 10 points behind, totally out of sight of a win. We have worked and prayed for this moment. We took our last Party Leader to within 3000 votes of Parliament in South Thanet, in the face of one of the most vicious – and dubious – spoiler campaigns in recent history. But now Brexit is on the horizon. President Trump is in the White House. The political landscape of Europe is shifting before our eyes. And the Labour Party is marching towards oblivion determinedly ignoring the concerns of the working men and women on whose support it was built.  Now, we have a heaven-sent opportunity to achieve the radical and permanent political change that Britain is crying out for. Stoke-on-Trent Central was one of the highest Leave-voting constituencies, at 69.4%. All the signs on the ground are that the Labour vote is softening. The bookies have two parties in it – Labour at around 5-4 on, and UKIP shortening to 7-4 so far, with everyone else (Tories, Lib-Dems and also-rans) at 10-1 or worse. Clearly, only UKIP can beat Labour here. If the Tories fight us, it will only be because they cynically want to keep Corbyn in place. This is another crucial moment for us, in UKIP’s ongoing mission to break the monopoly of the political class, and take back control for the people. With your help, we can do...

Don’t bully Brexit Britain

Don’t bully Brexit Britain

Jan 19, 2017

Brexit Britain will not be bullied by EU • European Parliament, Strasbourg, 18 January 2017 • Paul Nuttall MEP, UKIP Leader (UK Independence Party, North West), Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD) group – @paulnuttallukip • Debate: Conclusions of the European Council meeting of 15 December 2016 European Council and Commission statements [2016/2789(RSP)] Transcript: “Well, Mr President, first allow me to congratulate you on your election. Well done. I think it’s interesting that the conclusions of the Council meeting raise the issues of migration and security because these two issues go hand in hand, as has recently been shown by the attacks on our continent. Certain politicians, who I don’t have to name here in this speech, should their hang their heads in shame because of their dangerous and reckless policies which have allowed jihadis to cross our borders, freely without checks. Thank goodness we, the UK, will be leaving. Yesterday our Prime Minister, Theresa May, set out her negotiation positions whilst some of it I applaud, other parts I find concerning. Firstly, I am worried that the so-called interim arrangements and phased implementation is simply Whitehall speak for a slow motion Brexit and I am also concerned that there was no mention of immediate immigration controls which means that by the time we are fully out of the EU, on current trends, we could have another million people coming to our country from the continent. And no-one in Britain bar UKIP, my party, is holding the government to account on these issues, maybe because the British Labour Party is a shambles that has let down working class people for far too long. I am, however glad, that the Prime Minister made it clear that we are leaving the Single Market. This would allow us, if the government has the will power to control our own borders, not pay a membership fee or not have to comply with EU Directives and Regulations. So I say to the EU negotiators, now is not the time for empty threats. Britain is not bluffing, Britain will not be bullied. Britain is not some sort of small nation on the peripheries of Europe. We are the United...

Congratulations to Paul

Congratulations to Paul

Dec 1, 2016

Congratulations Paul and a job well done! Paul Nuttall MEP has been elected UKIP`s New Party Leader by 63% of those who voted in the leadership contest. Despite our summer of discontent with infighting and fall outs, we are still polling 13% and now that we now have a leader who has promised to unite the party I am sure that we can build on that and make UKIP a party that patriotic people will vote for.  Uniting the party is Paul`s first step into the future, getting the right team around him working for the good of the country as well as the party and having known and worked with him for many years ( we both joined UKIP in 2004), I know that is what he will do.  We may have won the referendum but now we are fighting for the future of our country and therefore future generations. That means campaigning and winning council seats as well as seats in parliament. We must ensure that our Government follows the will of the British people and that Brexit means Brexit with no interference from the judiciary or the Remainers. The 17.4 patriots who voted to leave the EU knew exactly what they were voting for, therefore we must hold them to account, no backsliding or watering down of the terms that we leave on. Paul has taken over the beacon from Nigel Farage, who despite being demonised by the establishment over many years, caused the political earthquake he predicted and is a man we must thank for having fought against the odds and brought about the Referendum. We have a very bright future ahead and must win over those patriotic people who voted to leave the EU and who have been constantly ignored by the Establishment and other political parties.  Paul is the man who along with his new team will do just that. UKIP will become the true voice of the opposition in our country, and as Paul has stated “ we will put the Great back in Britain”. Phil Griffiths North West President,...

Why I’m backing Paul

Why I’m backing Paul

Nov 8, 2016

I’m backing Paul Nuttall in the Leadership Contest for the following reasons: Paul has been our North West MEP since 2009 and was re-elected again in 2014, during this time he has served us as Party Chairman and then as Deputy Party Leader, gaining a wealth of experience within those positions. He has wide support not only in the region but throughout the party, the press and media, influential supporters, members of the public and is greatly respected by all.  He knows how the party’s past failings and how it needs to be managed for the future challenges and is the only person that I know who is capable of unite UKIP and move it forward for our future political success.    Some of the future challenges: Holding the Government to account over “BREXIT” Ensuring that they act in accordance of the will of the 17.4 million people who voted to leave the EU. No ifs or buts. Winning seats in both next years local elections and building up support for the 2020 general election, winning over the disenfranchised Labour voters who feel abandoned by the militants who now control it. For all of these challenges and of the past events we need a strong leader, that is why I am backing Paul Nuttall. The Right man at the Right Time, Paul Nuttall MEP for UKIP PARTY LEADER ! That`s why I`m backing Paul and would ask all North West Members to VOTE for PAUL in the ballot to elect our next Party Leader. Thank you Phil Griffiths President, North West UK Independence...
