The reasons why UKIP will win in Rochford and Southend East

There will not be a sudden swing to Labour in Rochford and Southend East. No one can argue that, it is not possible; therefore a vote for Labour is a wasted vote.

The Liberal Democrats have no base of support in Rochford or Southend East so a vote for them is a wasted vote.

UKIP got more votes than Labour and the Liberal Democrats combined in this constituency. UKIP came a clear second. The voters support UKIPs views on Europe, Law and Order and constitutional change. These facts make UKIP the only national party that can challenge the sitting Conservative MP.

By the time of the General Election the Lisbon treaty will be ratified and the Conservatives will be exposed as not being willing to reverse this move.

Add to that the fact that the Conservative voters will not be happy with an MP who spent taxpayers money improving a property prior to renting it out and then bought a property with double the mortgage; which is also being paid by the taxpayer.

I am convinced that once the electorate realise that a vote for UKIP is the only alternative to Conservative; they will examine our policies, will be delighted by the expert and common sense nature of them and will then support our cause.

Red Friday (Copied from an email received)

I'm Scottish so would probably change some of the words in this but the sentiment is right.

Last week I was in West London attending a conference. While I was in the airport, returning home, I heard several people behind me beginning to clap and cheer. I immediately turned around and witnessed one of the greatest acts of patriotism I have ever seen. Moving through the terminal was a group of soldiers in their uniforms, as they began heading to their gate everyone (well almost everyone) was abruptly to their feet with their hands waving and cheering. When I saw the soldiers, probably 30-40 of them, being applauded and cheered for, it hit me. I'm not alone. I'm not the only red blooded Briton who still loves this country and supports our troops and their families. Of course I immediately stopped and began clapping for these young unsung heroes who are putting their lives on the line everyday for us so we can go to school, work, and enjoy our home without fear or reprisal.

Just when I thought I could not be more proud of my country or of our service men and women a young girl, not more than 6 or 7 years old, ran up to one of the male soldiers. He knelt down and said 'hi,' the little girl then asked him if he would give something to her daddy for her. The young soldier didn't look any older than maybe 22 himself, said he would try and what did she want to give to her daddy. Suddenly the little girl grabbed the neck of this soldier, gave him the biggest hug she could muster and then kissed him on the cheek. The mother of the little girl, who said her daughters name was Courtney, told the young soldier that her husband was a Corporal and had been in Afghanistan for 5 months now. As the mum was explaining how much her daughter, Courtney, missed her father, the young soldier began to tear up. When this temporarily single mum was done explaining her situation, all of the soldiers huddled together for a brief second. Then one of the other servicemen pulled out a military looking walkie-talkie. They started playing with the device and talking back and forth on it. After about 10-15 seconds of this, the young soldier walked back over to Courtney, bent down and said this to her, 'I spoke to your daddy and he told me to give this to you.' He then hugged this little girl that he had just met and gave her a Kiss on the cheek. He finished by saying 'Your daddy told me to tell you that he loves you more than anything and he is coming home very soon.' The mum at this point was crying almost uncontrollably and as the young soldier stood to his feet he saluted Courtney and her mum. I was standing no more than 6 feet away as this entire event unfolded. As the soldiers began to leave, heading towards their gate, people resumed their applause. As I stood there applauding and looked around, there were very few dry eyes, including my own. That young soldier in one last act of moment turned around and blew a kiss to Courtney with a tear rolling down his cheek.

We need to remember everyday all of our soldiers and their families and thank God for them and their sacrifices. At the end of the day, it's good to be an Englishman. * RED FRIDAYS* Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday. The reason?

Englishmen and women who support our troops used to be called the 'silent majority'. We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for Country and home in record breaking numbers. We are not organized, boisterous or over-bearing. We get no liberal media coverage on TV, to reflect our message or our opinions. Many English people, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the vast majority of Britain supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that every Briton who supports our men and women afar will wear something red. By word of mouth, press, TV -- let's make Great Britain on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football team If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, co-workers, friends, and family, It will not be long before Britain is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once 'silent' majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on. The first thing a soldier says when asked 'What can we do to make things better for you?' is...'We need your support and your prayers'... Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example; and wear something red every Friday. *

G20 Immigration and the opportunity.

It is generally accepted that the current global economic crises can only be solved by action from the leading nations of the World. The United Kingdom is considered to be one of those nations. Its time we acted as a global player rather than being limited by the narrow minded Europhiles.

The growth in the world is going to come from the USA, the developing countries of South America and Asia (especially India and China.)

As a nation we have historic links with many countries in these developing regions and we should use these links to develop trade and friendship between our nations. The Commonwealth is a superb conduit to trading with the world and we should first apologise to the Commonwealth for neglecting our responsibility to it and then contribute to its development.

Tying ourselves to the old world of Europe does not make sense. We should continue to trade with Europe and enjoy the diversity of the countries and the history but we should not submit to their alien will and style of government.

We have a huge talent pool of British Indians, British Chinese and British Africans who could lead the way in opening up markets for our companies. This is one advantage of the controlled immigration of the past.

Let me be clear...immigration is currently out of control and we have to get it under control before it affects internal relations and destroys our public services by putting unplanned strain upon them. However, we must also accept that immigration on the whole has been good for our country and could offer us some huge advantages when dealing with the new world.

So UKIP wants to limit our relationship with the old mainly white Europeans and deepen our relationships with Asian countries, India and China. Surprised!!

UKIP also wants to save Italian, French and Spanish national differences so we can enjoy those differences. Do we really want to live in a one size fits all culture?

That isn't racist..that isn't little is a more international approach than any of the other parties will give you.

I was pleasantly surprised when I met the membership of UKIP at the annual conference last year. You will not find a political party with greater love not only of their own country but of traveling and building relationships with other countries of the world. The experience killed off any nagging worries about UKIPs image that I may have had and I am now proud to stand fully behind their/our banner.

Vote UKIP on UK IndePendence Day on June 4th. Lets take Britain forward to fulfil our potential in the World.

Shame on them

MP's from all political parties will be getting ready to defend their expenses when they are published after Easter.

Second home allowances of over £20,000 a year for some who live within an hour and a half of their workplace and only go there 30 weeks a year 3 nights a week.

MP's buying not one but two plasma TV screens, furniture not normal but Antique. Sky sports packages etc

They will all now say that they operated within the rules and will change their activity in the future to operate within any new rules. But surely it is more revealing what someone does rather than whether it is within the rules.

Some MP's have behaved impeccably and will now reap their just reward. Most have not and will be shamed. Its time for a new approach to politics with new faces.

The West Lothian Answer

I am Scottish and British.

I have great respect for those who want a totally Independent Scotland as it is a honourable position to hold. However, I do not agree with them and believe the Union is stronger economically and unique in its ability to allow expression of own country and pride in being British.

I am ashamed at the current inequality of the unbalanced Union. The current arrangement of Scottish MPs voting on matters that only concern England whilst excluding English MPs from voting on Scottish matters is wrong. Its not fair. It is not honourable.

The solution is to have 1 MP for each Scottish constituency representing their constituents in the Houses of Parliament and also representing them in Edinburgh when the Scottish Parliament sits. There must also be the same arrangement in England with English MPs forming an English Parliament.

Inconsistencies in Health, Education and Welfare must not be allowed to happen with no financial penalty.

The conflicts are being cleverly created but the Scottish people know it is an embarrassment to the country and must stop it before it causes uncontrollable resentment.

British based Jobs for people

British jobs for British people was what Gordon Brown said. This is inflammatory, has a tinge of racism and is economically stupid.

Everyone is attacking Brown saying its time to deliver...well he can't, either can Cameron. The problem is we have an open house policy that allows too many non-British people to come to our country and take advantage of our economy and our Welfare, Education and Health systems.

Only UKIP among the mainstream parties can control immigration and ensure priority for legal immigrants and British residents. The EU opens our borders to the world.

There is no point trade unionists holding wildcat strikes, being indignant and then voting Labour or Conservative. Why lose pay and demonstrate in the streets if the fault is your own. Wake up and smell the coffee. Vote UKIP, get out of the EU, control our borders, ignite trade with our former friends of the commonwealth. Work with the new world not the old. Grow British based jobs for all people who are legally entitled to be here.

Give and Take,Take, Take, Take.

For every £100 the European Union takes from the UK in payment it returns £22 of it in "investment".

For every £100 the European Union takes from France it gives £98 back.

When will the British people realise that we are being taken for a ride. The people of South Essex voted in their tens of thousands at the last European Elections for the United Kingdom Independence Party, we now need those intelligent people to tell the other stupid people who want to take back control of our country but still voted Labour and Conservative to wake up and smell the coffee.

Don't get me wrong...if you believe it is a good thing that a foreign governing body creates 75% of our laws and bleeds Billions of pounds from us then vote for these other parties with my blessing. If you are one of the 70% of British people that do not want a further reduction in the sovereignty of our nation through the Lisbon treaty and still vote LibLabCON then you are a very silly person.

Take time to learn what political parties believe in, don't vote for a party because you think they represent your class. Ignore politicians that say they want one thing (e.g. less power in European Parliament.) but continue to support the party that wants the opposite. They do that to keep their jobs!!! That's not democracy.

Fish for Fun- Not anymore.

All people who enjoy fishing in the sea, from a boat or a pier or on the Seafront will need to register their activities if a new European directive comes into force.

When you catch a fish you will have to declare it so that it can be included in the fishing quotas for the UK.

Failure to declare could cost you £50,000.

Its madness and I expect all fishermen to support UKIP the only national party that will return control of our fishing waters to the UK and stop other nations stealing our fish.

The Challenge to Southend

These are the results for Southend Area at the last European election.

Conservative (putting Britain first) 14,090

UKIP 9,319

Labour 6,093

Liberal 4,925

We all know that the Conservatives do not put Britain first...this was a ploy to make people who voted Conservative think they were voting for what they believe in.

UKIP is the challenger in Southend and I am demanding that the media give it the coverage it deserves in South Essex.

I am also challenging Conservative voters to vote with their heads rather than remain committed to a party that does not stand up to Europe.

South Essex Leads the way

The vast majority of peolple in this country want a referendum on whether we should continue to be a member of the European Union. In Southend Borough nearly 10,000 people voted UKIP at the last European election. This was the second highest number of votes.

UKIP is not a party that lacks support in Essex and we now have a voice in Parliament leading the way in fighting for what the British people want. Bob Spink is the first member of UKIP to be an MP. He has presented an early day motion in Parliament calling for a referendum on Europe to allow the people of the UK to assert their democratic right to choose their own future.

This platform is strong and once people realise that UKIP is the party that represents their views in all areas of domestic policy even more votes will come. Join the fight.

Its time to Wake up and smell the coffee!

EU costs £106,000 EVERY MINUTE

Appologies. The truth is that the EU does not cost us £106,000 every hour as I previously said ....its EVERY MINUTE.

Thats £152 MILLION each and every day. or over £55 Billion a year!!!!!

The Democratic Deficit

Why do people in this country vote against what they do not want rather than for what they do want. The brainwashing of the electorate by the media is that Labour and Conservative are the only choice when voting for the UK Government and as one fails you go back to the previous failed choice. Coverage is given to the Liberals as an opt out choice and worryingly a lot of coverage is being given to the BNP.

If you were to draw a line from left wing to right wing based on current policies it would look like this; with a huge gulf from the centre to the far right. Size is in relation to media coverage.


The problem is that the media is not giving UKIP the coverage it deserves. In my home town UKIP got the second largest vote at the last European election behind the Conservatives who dared to use the strapline...Putting Britain first!!!! (The public were Con`d again.) but the coverage of UKIP is almost non existent.

The media coverage means that many voters are jumping from Labour and Conservative to the far right out of frustration not understanding there is a choice that they can be comfortable with in UKIP. 20% voted BNP at the last local election in my ward. As more people make this jump it becomes more acceptable and the danger is that strong emotions will result in more elected BNP candidates and fractured communities.

When UKIP policies are explained to people the vast majority agree with them. It is the media`s responsibility to communicate this choice by giving more coverage to the party that best represents the beliefs of the British people.

A Post office in every Village

Most of us believe that local Post offices are good for the community and are a vital link for elderly people especially in villages. The only way we can achieve the reality of having a Post office in every village is by giving priority to the Post office when issueing Government contracts and by subsidies when the raw economics do not add up.

The European union does not allow us to subsidise our Post Offices. Therefore, the nest time you see any MP (apart from Bob Spink of Castle Point) standing for a photo op outside a Post Office ask them. If it is illegal to support these Post offices financially because we are a member of the European Union and the party you represent supports membership....why are you here. Are you being deceitful?

Only UKIP could deliver a Post Office in Every Village.

Its time to Wake up and smell the coffee!

UK Donates £2.5M EVERY Day

The UK donates £106,000 every hour to the European Union. We have lost control of our country with more than half of our new laws generated in Brussels. When Gordon Brown says British jobs for British people he sounded a touch racist but was lying as well. The European Union does not allow us to provide jobs specifically for our own people.

MP's pose next to Post Offices saying we will fight to keep these open. They do not tell you that we are not allowed to give practical financial support; because Europe says no.

They tell us what we can do.

They take our money.

They are unelected and unknown.

They have not had their accounts approved for many years.

That is why we must get out of Europe and take back control of our country.

UKIP is the only party committed to withdrawal from Europe. If you think it is good to be controlled from Brussels then vote Labour, Conservative or Liberal. If you agree that we need to leave; your only real choice is to vote UKIP.

Over the next 6 month I will be focussing on Europe as that election is just around the corner and the decision is quite straightforward. However the reason to leave Europe is to take control and improve our country, so I will also be giving a taste of what we stand for domestically within UKIP and what voting for UKIP would do to change the fabric of our country to face the challenges of this century.

Throw out the old tired politics and stand for real change. Wake up and smell the coffee!

#Please do not follow this blog if you are basically anti immigration or a nationalist; there will be nothing for you here. I believe controlled immigration has been wonderful for this country over the past century. However, we have recently lost control of it and it is now damaging the country and hurting past immigrants more than anyone.
