Theresa May’s decision to call a General Election on June 8th caught many by surprise, although our team had been suspicious for months.
With the date set, UKIP now need to gear up quickly to fight an effective, targeted campaign.
Our candidates in Hillingdon will be announced later this week
Unlike the establishment political parties, we don’t have big corporate backers or trade unions to supply us with the funds to run a campaign and instead rely on the generosity of ordinary citizens to fund our People’s Army.
This is where you can help.

Twenty Members of the European parliament from six EU member-states have written an open letter to President Donald J. Trump calling for early implementation of his campaign pledge to pull the USA out of the Paris Climate Treaty. In their letter, they say that a US withdrawal from the Paris accord “would effectively neuter it, to the benefit of us all”. They applaud the new and more positive approach which President Trump is taking to climate and energy issues, and say they “are pressing for similar policies on this (European) side of the Atlantic”.
They also raise their concerns about the EPA’s “endangerment” finding with regard to CO2, and urge the President to revisit the issue. They argue that the finding “has no sound basis in science, but provides a pretext for damaging and extreme environmental policies”.
Commenting on the letter, UKIP’s Energy Spokesman Roger Helmer, who set up the initiative, said “It is clear that the EU’s extreme green policies are doing huge damage to EU industry and EU competitiveness, and are driving energy-intensive industries out of the EU entirely, taking their jobs and their investments with them. At the same time these policies have a trivial effect on the climate. Billions spent on “green” investments amount to little more than gesture politics and virtue-signalling from politicians spending other people’s money”.

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of a General Election on June 8, UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall said: “We welcome the opportunity to take UKIP’s positive message to the country.
“However, we believe that the Prime Minister’s decision to call this election is a cynical decision driven more by the weakness of Corbyn’s Labour Party rather than the good of the country.
“There is also the prospect of a slew of Tory held by-elections caused by the seeming systematic breach of electoral law at the last election, predominantly in places where UKIP were pressing the Conservatives hard.
“We are in the midst of Brexit negotiations so this election will provide a perfect opportunity for the 52% to vote for UKIP the only party wholeheartedly committed to a clean quick and efficient Brexit.”
UKIP oppose any further PFI deals and would encourage buying out of existing schemes where funds are available
