UKIP in Surrey Heath
The UK Independence Party is committed to providing Britain with a government that will make a positive difference, including withdrawing Britain from the European Union. We recognise the people of Surrey Heath will be much better off without EU interference and its huge financial drain on the economy. International co-operation, which we support, does not require 'ever closer political union'!
Over the past year, we have seen the public in ever larger numbers come to see that the problems we face are caused in large part through our membership of the EU and exacerbated by the LibLabCon MP's failure to address that. UKIP's support has grown nationally, as well as locally - e.g. in 2013, polling over 22%, and in 2014 widely polling over 32%. In 2014, we have seen two by-elections won by UKIP - in Clacton, Essex and Rochester and Strood, Kent giving UKIP two MP's (Douglas Carswell & Mark Reckless) - each with significant majorities - UKIP have created a political earthquake and are now mainstream, with representatives in all levels of government. Unlike the 'LibLabCon', UKIP offer policies for the UK, that will make Britain 'Great' once more, no longer looking back to an outdated model for trade etc.
Paul Chapman heads up the local constituency branch for UKIP.
The traditional political parties in Britain have for years exaggerated the benefits of EU membership, and covered up the EU waste and corruption. We believe that Britain should be an independent self-governing nation and not part of a European Federal Superstate. But more than that, UKIP offers a future in which Britain is free to govern itself, to enforce its own laws, to control its borders, and to make a successful way economically – trading well with the whole world (not just tied to a few member countries in an outdated model, as the EU offers). And above all, able to honour promises to its citizens.
We welcome support from people who believe in british parliamentary democracy. We are campaigning not just to get control of our country back from Brussels, but in the process, to bring about more local democracy, fairness, and the chance for ordinary people to choose, rather than just be told by unelected bureaucrats. The party has a full compliment of domestic and international policies, covering all the main issues that affect Britain today.
Several members of the current committee are shown in picture just above.
We have local policies that we contend will make the Surrey Heath area a better place to live, work and enjoy. Come, join us and help us make a difference!
Following the elections held on 22nd May 2014, UKIP Surrey Heath would like to acknowledge the large proportion of active voters locally (32.8%), who voted for UKIP in the European Elections in South East England. Thank you for your support to UKIP, and support for leaving the EU.
