Our London M.E.P. Gerrard Batten speaks about TTIP
The Greater London Assembly (GLA) elections take place next week (5th May). Here is a guide to the candidates that UKIP will be fielding in the elections in our area and how to negotiate the minefield of three ballot papers with three different electoral procedures!

UKIP London Mayoral Candidate – Peter Whittle
I’ve been UKIP’s Culture spokesman for the past two years. I was a Candidate for London at the European Elections in 2014, a local council candidate in the same year, and at the General Election this year I was the party’s parliamentary candidate for Eltham.
People said it was an un-winnable, non-target seat. But I chose to fight in London because I’m from here, and I want to represent my city and its wonderful people.
Leave wins the Spectator Brexit debate at the London Palladium
It was the largest debate in The Spectator’s history and sold out the 2,200-seat London Palladium.
The lineup was chaired by Andrew Neil.
Dan Hannan, Nigel Farage and Kate Hoey vs
Nick Clegg, Liz Kendall and Chuka Umunna.
Full report ;
I note that those in favour of Remain are obsessed with power and influence while those in favour of Leave believe in freedom and democracy.
Peter Whittle, UKIP Mayoral Candidate
He promised to scrap all six deputy mayor posts created by Boris Johnson, including those responsible for the Met, housing and transport. This could save some £800,000 in salaries every year and more in expenses.
Mr Whittle said: “I don’t think you need these positions. It’s got to be streamlined.”

Roger Helmer MEP comments on the visit of President Obama to the UK and his comments on our membership of the EU
My final comments on Obama visit.
President Obama’s recent intervention in the British Referendum debate, threatening that the UK would be “at the back of the queue” for a US/UK trade deal, should be treated with the contempt it deserves. It is quite improper for a foreign Head of State to interfere in this way. It is also not credible. There are several key points to be made.
A few words from Liam Fox MP
We were very pleased that Gerrard Batten MEP attended our “Brexit” stall and
chatted with the crowd of onlookers and well wishers the crowd was sometimes two deep ,with people queuing to get “Brexit” leaflets the subject that was on most peoples minds was the “interference ” by President Obama in the “Brexit” campaign. If it was mentioned once,it was mentioned a hundred times.
The crowds seemed to be in a happy mood on St.Georges Day (this photo thanks to
alex nieora )All in all, well done to all our “Brexit”volunteers .
