David Cameron PROMISED a House of Commons a vote on the European Arrest Warrant last night. Guess what? He lied. AGAIN.
This government has consistently treated the British people with contempt. Even the Conservative Party’s own Members of Parliament accused it of “deception“, and Speaker Bercow, with whom I rarely agree, called it a “sorry saga“. He was right.
Jacob Rees-Mogg MP said it was “fundamentally underhand” while Bill Cash MP said it was a “disgraceful way of going about a very important matter“.
Because the government has acted in this way, the British public will likely be dragged back into the European Arrest Warrant, without so much as a vote for our democratic representatives.
And yet the Tories want you to believe they are tough on Europe.
Watch this video below, and consider donating us £3.70, £37, or £370 to represent the scant few Tories who opposed further EU integration last night. You guessed it: there was ONLY 37 OF THEM.
UKIP figures blast European Arrest Warrant shambles
Published Nov 11, 2014
Nigel Farage, Douglas Carswell and Mark Reckless have responded to the Government’s failure to offer the Commons a vote on the European Arrest Warrant.
UKIP Leader Nigel Farage said: “The failure to offer the Commons a vote, and thus the British public a say on the European Arrest Warrant, is a farce.
“The Government has treated British democracy with customary contempt.
“It’s difficult to believe a word this Government says on any issue.”
UKIP MP Douglas Carswell: “David Cameron promised a vote on this issue in the Commons. His Whips tried to play it clever and fix procedure. It has backfired spectacularly.
“Government Whips had to summon Cabinet Ministers back to rescue themselves from their own chaos.”
UKIP’s Mark Reckless said: “The Home Affairs Select Committee agreed unanimously that Parliament should vote on an amendable motion when deciding whether to opt in to 35 EU Justice and Home Affairs measures and put the European Court of Justice in charge for the first time. We also demanded that there should be a separate vote on the European Arrest Warrant. The government’s refusal to respect that advice ended in a procedural shambles tonight. It showed contempt for Parliament, the public, and democratic process. Voters in Rochester and Strood will have their chance to give their judgement next week and the country will follow next May.”
Government ‘copy and paste’ UKIP Policy on Shale Gas
Published Nov 10, 2014
Policy announced over the weekend is a clear copy and paste of UKIP Energy Policy, sparking outrage from the party’s Head of Policy Tim Aker.
Plans to create a ‘Sovereign Wealth Fund’ from the profits of shale gas extraction were released by the UK’s Energy Ministry over the weekend.
“It’s astonishing that not only are they lifting our policy concepts straight out of our manifesto, but they are not even worried about using our wording. It’s basically a copy and paste!” said Tim Aker MEP, who helped from the policy last year.
“It’s been on the record for well over a year that UKIP wanted to look into exploiting our vast shale gas deposits and would use the profits to shore up a wealth fund for the general public.
“We formally announced this before our Annual Party Conference in London in September 2013.
“The Tories can try to dress up as us and sell our policies to the voter but they should also remind themselves that they cannot focus on shale gas as a fuel for the future while also signing up to the EU carbon targets for 2020.
“We have pushed the agenda on so many topics, from having an EU referendum, to controlling immigration, to blocking intervention in Syria and accepting their refugees, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that they are taking a leaf out of our book on energy too.
“Perhaps UKIP should stand for UK Innovators of Policy.
“They say imitation is the highest form of flattery. The poor old Conservative Party do not have an original thought in their head.”
Despite the wind and rain, the campaign team were out again in Charville yesterday (Saturday 8th November) delivering our second round of candidate leaflets.
Joined later in the day by London Chairman Roger Gravett, who travelled across London by tube to pitch in, experienced old hands like Ray, Martin and myself were joined by members of Young Independence and new recruits such as Lorraine to get the message out.
In response to the high profile and Heathrow Airport funded Back Heathrow campaign, local residents have joined together to launch a counter movement opposed to a 3rd Runway.
SHE is a non-aligned grassroots movement for all opposed to the devastation that is proposed in the south of our borough and beyond. UKIP Hillingdon support the aims of the group, and would recommend all worried about how Heathrow expansion would affect them to attend this Thursday
