The deceased MP

June 26th 2010 012While walking down the street one day a Member of Parliament is tragically hit by a truck and dies.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.


‘Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.’
‘No problem, just let me in,’ says the man.

‘Welcome to heaven,’ says St. Peter.

‘Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.’

‘Really, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,’ says the MP.

‘I’m sorry, but we have our rules.’

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

June 26th 2010 015

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.

They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly & nice guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises….

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.

‘Now it’s time to visit heaven.’

So, 24 hours pass with the MP joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

‘Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.’

The MP reflects for a minute, then he answers: ‘Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.’

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.

Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.

He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder. ‘ I don’t understand,’ stammers the MP..
‘Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look haunted and miserable. What happened? ‘

The devil looks at him, smiles and says, ‘Yesterday we were campaigning’.

“Today you voted”.

Is Hillingdon Council leader Ray Puddifoot calling Boris Johnson a liar?

UKIP Hillingdon press release 31st March 2015

Ray PuddifootIn The Gazette dated 25th March, Ray Puddifoot (Left) responded to UKIP criticisms of council spending on self-promotion by stating that “Hillingdon Council is not responsible for Police budgets” and accused our Parliamentary candidate for Uxbridge & South Ruislip, Jack Duffin, of having a ‘Lack of understanding’

Freedom of Information requests by Mr Duffin had revealed that Hillingdon Council had spent £8435.54 for on line advertising in financial year 2013/14 to add to the nearly £100,000 spent on their promotional magazine ‘Hillingdon People’ in the same period.

UKIP policy in Hillingdon is to scrap the magazine and redirect that money to front line services including Policing.

Jack Duffin profile high res

In reply to Mr Puddifoot’s statement, Jack Duffin said, “ If the council is not responsible for Police budgets, then why did Boris Johnson state in his 2012 Mayoral campaign that for every extra police officer funded by a local authority he would match that in a ‘buy one, get one free’ offer from the Greater London Authority (GLA)?

Indeed, Boris stated in the document ‘Fighting Crime in London’ that twelve London Boroughs, including neighbouring Harrow, had taken him up on the offer.

If this is the case, then either Ray Puddifoot has a ‘lack of understanding’ of what is available to him concerning policing in Hillingdon or he is calling Boris Johnson a liar.”

COMMON SENSE AND PRIDE IN OUR COUNTRY ALERT !!!!!!!

If you are allergic to common sense and still support the anti-English Conservatives, Labour or LibDems, please look away now……..

Nigel-Farage-Ukip-St-George-s-Day-433284

UKIP leader Nigel Farage said he will fight to have April 23 declared a national day off in honour of the patron saint of England. He also said that St David’s Day – March 1 – should also be declared a Bank Holiday in Wales.
Mr Farage, 50, said it was only fair that English and Welsh folk got days off to toast their patron saints like the Scots and Northern Irish.
He claims extra tourist income and spending in bars, restaurants and on souvenirs on the celebration days would offset any money lost to the economy.
Revealing his holiday election policy pledge exclusively to the Daily Star, Mr Farage said: “I think the fact that we don’t have our own public holidays in England and Wales is discriminatory.
“England has been denigrated to such a point over the years that English culture isn’t celebrated in the same way as the national cultures of Scotland and Ireland are.
“We’d like to see St George’s Day and St David’s Day become national days of celebration in recognition of the significance of the two countries.”
If he becomes the Ukip MP for South Thanet in Kent at the General Election in May, he will fight to get the new government to write the new holidays into law.
Mr Farage said England and Wales currently have fewer public holidays than anywhere else in Europe, including Scotland and Northern Ireland.
St Patrick’s Day has been a public holiday in Ireland since 1903 and St Andrew’s Day was designated a Bank Holiday in Scotland by the Scottish Parliament in 2006.

Well done Nigel.

Former Labour chairman Harriet Yeo replaces Janice Atkinson in Folkestone & Hythe

Janice Atkinson has been replaced with former Labour Party chairman, Harriet Yeo, as UKIP PPC for Folkestone & Hythe.

Atkinson has been expelled from the party along with her chief of staff over a dodgy expense claim.

Yeo was chairman of the Labour Party between 2012-13, a member of the Labour Party’s national executive and Treasurer and President of the Transport Salaried Staffs’ Association (TSSA) trade union. She resigned from the Labour Party earlier this year and announced her support for UKIP but stopped short of joining the party. She has now joined the party and will contest the Folkestone & Hythe seat for UKIP.

Our economic vision

  • As a party we back the aspirations and energies of British working people who wish to improve the living standards of their families through the fruits of their own labours rather than accepting the inevitable grievous disappointments of long-term state dependency.We are in the extraordinary position of the insurgent party of British politics having spelt out its cuts, while the establishment parties have refused to do so. It is flabbergasting that George Osborne is going into the election having only set out departmental spending for one year ahead, while trying to get straight answers of Labour about its public spending plans is frankly impossible. Taken with other measures we will announce in our manifesto, this gives us annual savings of more than £25bn compared to the other parties, which would not do any of these things.
