Rumours of UKIP’s demise are greatly exaggerated

The following article is the opinion of the author and does not necessarily represent the official view of the party

DSC_0404It is often said that a week is a long time in politics – with the events of the last seven days it has certainly seemed that way!

Following on from the surprise resignation of leader Diane James MEP after just 18 days in the role, we have now seen media headlines surrounding an altercation between two of our MEP’s in the EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

The Party is currently investigating what actually happened and as such it would be wrong for me to speculate before that investigation is concluded. I feel sure that we all wish Steven Woolfe MEP, a personal friend and a thoroughly decent man, a speedy recovery.

UKIP Migration spokesman Steven Woolfe MEP said:  “I am sure that the residents of the UK will be as alarmed by these ridiculously high numbers of people coming into Britain, as I am. UKIP warned that opening the door to Romania and Bulgaria on January 1st would lead to more economic refugees into the country. The politically correct establishment condemned us at the time – but we were right.
“Until our political elites state categorically that  EU membership is a major cause of the UK’s wage lowering, uncontrolled, mass migration and broken, unsecured borders they will continue to fail the British people. And our national public infrastructure, services and finances will continue to take the strain of hundreds of thousands of new EU residents in Britain each year. When it comes to immigration, voting Conservative or Labour equals the same outcome. Open borders and hundreds of thousands of EU citizens coming and going into Britain as they please.  The pressure on  schools, hospitals and roads is increasing. It is time we took back control of our borders and who comes into our country  – but this can only happen by voting UKIP.”
