UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall’s New Year’s message for...

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...

The future of UKIP

The future of UKIP

Sep 9, 2016

We are in the process of voting for a new party leader and on the 16th September we will know who our new leader will be, then we can get on with our future. We have a very positive role to play in  shaping the political future of our country, in last year’s General Election nearly 4 million people voted for UKIP, more than the Lib Dems and the SNP had put together.  We have strong representation in the Welsh Assembly as well as hundreds of councillors across the country, we now need to get our candidates voted into parliament.  And a fantastic opportunity awaits us in the form of the disarray within the Labour Party caused by the infiltration by the far-left and encouraged by Jeremy Corbyn. With the current opposition party in such a state we have been handed a golden opportunity and that is to take on Labour. The country needs a strong and firm opposition party and that is a roll the UKIP can fulfil and let us remember that it was thanks to all in UKIP that the Government gave us an “IN/OUT” referendum which we won.  Thanks to Nigel Farage, our MEPs, the membership of the party and cross-party support we, despite the “Project Fear” from the then Government, the establishment institutions as well as the so called “experts” persuaded 17.4 million people voted to leave the EU and we won the argument. We now have to ensure that Teresa May and her Government fulfil the wishes of the the electorate who voted to leave, without any watering down of the terms on how we leave the EU. People voted to leave in order to regain control of our country as an independent nation, to make our own laws, control immigration and our borders, deciding who enters the country. There are many influential “ Remainers” both in the Conservative and in the other political parties who will try anything to stop or delay “Brexit”. It will be our job to ensure that does not happen and we will therefore scrutinise the progress and hold them to account where necessary. To ensure the future of our country as well as UKIP success, it is essential that the membership  fully support the next leader...
