A day with Nigel is always eventful for one reason or another.
Yesterday amidst the torrential rain that engulfed Dudley, we had a very important visitor.
Nigel arrived & from then on every minute was a complete tornado. The energy & work load he gets through is quite amazing. Despite his own well documented spinal problems after the plane crash in 2010, the man is focused & dedicated.
Yes we’ve all heard the detractors but they simply couldn’t be more wrong! He took a massive pay cut to be part of #UKIP and he’s helped build it to the party it is today! In the past year our membership has doubled!
In most areas where there are local elections we are able to put a candidate in each & every ward. Another new high.
Nigel is the very same person you see on TV as he is in real life. He gave a few people the slip yesterday as he wanted to get a sandwich! Nigel & a number of members went out into Sedgley to find him something he would like to eat. Can’t see any of the others simply strolling down Sedgley High Street to find a sandwich shop. Again this is Nigel all over he is a product of the old school work ethic & determination. Great qualities when you know of his punishing workload & doing all he can to obtain a referendum on the UK’s continued costly membership of the EU.
Just think if we had to pay £55 per day for a Gym membership or pottery class! How many of us would say
this isn’t affordable & I’m not gaining any from this I will cancel my direct debit.
The UK must pay £55 million per day to be in the EU club, few of us wish to be a part of it and that’s £55m we can’t afford to pay! It has bound us in it’s red tape for far too long.
All the scare stories of losing 3 million plus jobs are complete hogwash! We have lost jobs in Southampton due to the Ford Van Factory closing here. The EU have paid the company to leave the UK and relocate in Turkey! So the EU costs jobs whilst we’re in it!
The traders of all manner of companies will not stop selling or buying from each other. The only jobs that will be lost are those who rely on the EU, MEPs, Commissioners, Interpreters, all manner of staffers!
UKIP are the only party who want to make their MEP’s redundant! They are our eyes & ears in the belly of the beast. They bring back the important intel to give us or how would we know about the waste?
Being with Nigel (or on the fringes of it all) you can see how hard he works, the enthusiasm he has for the cause, his dedication. There was at the last minute a change of his plans and he was travelling to another destination before going home to see his family.
He made time to meet some friends of mine & Bills, you may have seen them on the news and my twitter followers will know I’ve been supporting the cause for a long time. Bill has also stated, if he is elected as an MEP, he will ask questions there & continue to help the family of Maxine Hambleton, the families of the other 20 people killed and the 182 people who were severely injured in the Birmingham Bombings in 1974. Nigel gave them much more time than we could have asked for but he is behind the cause as is Jill Seymour (who is No1 on the West Midlands Region List) so that is a major local cause that UKIP want to help get the truth. Nigel even remembered Julie Hambleton’s letter (which she sent to every leader of a main political party). Nigel was the only one to even take the time to write back.
In the evening Nigel addressed 650 people at Dudley Concert Hall. A rousing success, new members signed up, he met many of the attendees after the event posing for photos, giving autographs, chatting to people etc. The whole audience was energised to get out and share the message!
I’m lucky enough to have been in Nigel’s company many times. The smears, the lies, the downright vile nasty accusations only spur him on! The same goes for all of us who like the truth so I say to those detractors keep saying all this nonsense, keep making up lies, keep digging up hearsay evidence, cloning candidates social media sites and all of the other completely outlandish slurs. You make us more resolute to the cause! We would welcome scrutiny if only all were treated equally! All that is being achieved is to make the Lib/Lab/Con look petty, scared, stupid and ridiculous! Keep it up it’s been the best recruitment tool!
I feel sorry for those who are harmed by the lies, honest good natured people being accused of all manner of rubbish don’t the media realise how their smears, allegations, lies harm someone who is a local council candidate or those who aren’t even seeking election. The lives of the person, their families suffer long after the newspaper story has been re-pulped and are history to the reporter. Sadly with the Internet etc these stories are always available. Youngsters at the start of their working lives can be smeared in such a way that they will find it extremely difficult to get a job! This is not right and is unfair. I’m all for the truth but not in favour of stuff that is based on the flimsiest kernel of truth and exaggerated beyond the realms of any fantasy novelist or filmmaker.
I wish the sensationalist journalists would give the same treatment to all political party candidates because all this does is make people think it is all a big rouse to discredit; a person, an idea, the party, the policies even down to the colour of socks someone wore in 1976.
UKIP are NOT;
Anti free trade
So stop being lazy and repeating this complete and utter tripe!
We have a full set of policies, at the moment we are showcasing our local policies which are different for each local area and the policies regarding the EU which are to find out what our money is spent on, the waste, the profligate spending etc etc!
The policies we will fight the General Election of 2015 are ready & contained in our Manifesto which will be released as & when the Democratically Elected National Executive Committee vote for it to be released.
Remember that policies for a General Election are ones we can fight for if we get MP’s elected to Westminster. Our 2015 Manifesto contains domestic policies such as;
Welfare; benefits etc
Law & Order
And the list goes on! UKIP have comprehensive policies written by people who are very knowledgable about the specific area of policy.
So when you hear or read the propaganda just ask yourself why are the Government & other parties so scared of UKIP ????
