Time For Change – Time To Make A Difference
The UK Independence Party ( UKIP ) was formed in 1993. It has continually developed sound and practical policies on national and local issues.
Media coverage has been changeable – not for the lack of UKIP activity but the preference of media. Good news is often hidden or ignored whilst anything deemed politically incorrect or awkward, is highlighted.
UKIP sent MEPs to the European Parliament so that we could learn the truth about what was going on and try to have some influence within the European Union. We learned that the European Parliament cannot initiate, but only vote on directives. Our MEPs have brought home knowledge and experience of what is really going on and had some influence on other Member State citizens.
UKIP MEPs, Councillors, members and supporters actively promote the Party through local and national campaigns, elections, public meetings and social media.
Our Councillors work hard for their communities and many have helped in very practical ways to keep services going e.g. cleaning public toilets in Ramsey.
In May 2014, UKIP won the European Elections with a total of 4,376,635 votes nationally. This proves that a system of Proportional Representation allocates seats in a much fairer way than the First Past the Post system.
Local issues affecting residents in the Mid Dorset & North Poole constituency include :
- Large scale housing development;
- Cuts in policing, NHS provision, and bus routes;
- Closure of public toilets;
- Rising costs of parking;
- Garden refuse collection.
Some of these issues stem from EU directives, others are a consequence of wasteful use of public money and resources and a lack of clear priorities for the country and local communities.
Towns, villages, and communities within the Mid Dorset & North Poole constituency include:
- Corfe Mullen
- Canford Heath
- Lytchett Matravers
- Lytchett Minster
- Holton Heath
- Bere Regis
UKIP is a patriotic party that values freedom, democracy and independence of the individual and country. Help us improve our communities by electing our candidates – to use their skills, experience and ideas from various trades, professions, small business and self employment.
Only UKIP will return self-government to the British people
