UKIP: Tim Congdon's election address & Nikki Sinclaire in the press

Click here for Tim Congdon's leadership election address: LINK

Tim is UKIP's only hope. Vote Congdon if you want to see UKIP become a force to be reckoned with in British politics!

Nikki Sinclaire's referendum campaign continues to gather momentum. She now has thousands of signatures and has been warmly welcomed at the various party conferences. If only certain UKIP MEPs worked as hard for their constituents!

Compare her to Spiv Farage. He is too busy lining his pockets at YOUR expense to worry about the people who elected him!

Nigel's new election poster. Once a spiv always a spiv!

Here is a report from The Independent:

On the street outside the conference is parked the mobile surgery of Nikki Sinclaire, MEP for the West Midlands. She was elected to the European Parliament for the UK Independence Party last year, ran for the party leadership, lost, fell out with her colleagues, got expelled, and now styles herself an independent. She was collecting signatures for a petition to get out of the EU, and getting a reasonable response.

And this recent entry is from Nikki's blog:

My battle bus rolled into Birmingham today for the final conference of the political season. The Conservatives have chosen Birmingham once again for their conference bringing gridlock to parts of the city on a daily basis. City centre conferences seem to be vogue at the moment much to the detriment of seaside resorts like Brighton, Blackpool, Bournemouth etc it used to be a nice little earner at the end of the season for these resorts but the established political parties rather disrupt the countries major cities.

The Campaign for a Referendum (CfaR) was received warmly by delegates, many signatures were collected and hundreds of petition packs handed out. Coincidently, the Bruges Group and CfaR had rooms at the Midlands Institute which allowed respective interested parties to find out more about each other.

Outside the Conference I had the pleasure to meet Lizzie Williams, a protester against the High Speed Link (HS2) that is cutting though the Green Belt. Lizzie had just finished her walk though the proposed route. I signed her petition and promised her my support.

Nikki on the radio

Nikki took 30 residents of her constituency to the EU Parliament to protest at the granting of special rights for travellers.

It was covered by the EU Reporter:

Heavy handed security criticised by MEP

Middle England descended on the European Parliament in Strasbourg this week to protest against the granting of "special rights" for travellers by the ECHR.

The Strasbourg based court has granted special rights that include priority access to healthcare and education, and which allow travellers to settle on land which otherwise not be considered suitable for residential purposes. Villagers from the West Midlands village of Meridan - which is geographically at the very centre of England - have had their lives disrupted by the arrival of a large number of travellers who have churned up a swathe of protected Green Belt land, and have moved caravans and other vehicles onto the land.

"If you give one group of people special rights" said MEP Nikki Sinclaire "then others automatically become the losers. All discrimination is wrong."

Rather ironically, the 30 or so residents, who staged a brief protest outside the Parliament building, attracted the ire of both parliament security staff and the French Riot Police. It would seem that as they were wearing T-shirts carrying the name of their organisation - Residents Against Inappropriate Development - they were considered a danger to the security of the parliament. Before they were allowed into the parliament itself for a pre-planned meeting the residents were forced to remove their shirts, leading to the spectacle of a number of people, some quite elderly, being forced to change their clothes in the street under the eyes of armed police. "This was nothing short of an outrage", said Ms. Sinclaire.

The planned meeting eventually went ahead, and letters outling the nature of the protest were handed to President Buzek, and to President Costa at the ECHR.

Nikki in Worcester

From the Evesham Journal:

Residents can have their say when Battle bus arrives

WEST Midlands’ MEP, Nikki Sinclaire, is bringing her ‘Have Your Say’ Battle Bus to Worcester on Friday, October 1.

Her aim is to get 100,000 signatures for her petition to demand a referendum which would give British people the chance to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to being part of the European Union. She plans to visit 50 locations across the West Midlands by the end of February 2011 to rally support.

Anyone under the age of 53 has never had the chance to vote on this issue, which Nikki believes is wrong. The last time the UK held a referendum on the Common Market, at it was then known, was in 1975.

Despite the fact that, if successful, the campaign outcome could put her out of a job, Nikki thinks people should decide whether it is right that: The UK contributes £45 million a day to the EU – that’s £16,425,000,000 each year 75% of our UK laws are decided by the EU yet the UK has only 72 of the 736 MEPs in the EU Parliament Each day we buy £5 million more from EU countries then they buy from us Nikki Sinclaire and her Battle Bus will be at Tesco’s in St Peter’s Drive, Worcester from 10am to 3pm on Friday, October 1. As well as encouraging people to sign the petition, she’ll also be on hand to listen to people’s concerns, answer their questions and encourage them to take back control of their own country.

Nikki said:
“I was elected to say NO to the EU and now I am giving the electorate a chance to have their say. This argument has gone on far too long - for the sake of our country, we need this issue settled once and for all”.

If that is copied from her blog, she needs an editor. Basic mistakes in English harm credibility.

Imagine the scorn NF would rightly receive for blog writing of that quality!

Thanks, Junius. I feared as much.
