Time For Change – Time To Make A Difference

The United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) was formed in 1993. Since when it has formulated and continually developed sound common-sense policies addressing both national and local issues.

Since the early days, media coverage has increased significantly and recognition noticeably improved, with MEP’s, local councillors, members and supporters, actively promoting the Party through local and national campaigns, general and local elections and, of course, this website.

Steady growth in membership of the Mid-Dorset and North Poole Branch is a clear reflection of the increasing popularity of UKIP with the electorate of Dorset, soundly endorsed by the election of Ian Smith (Ferndown) as a Dorset County Councillor in 2013, and Tony Woodcock elected as the first UKIP Councillor in Poole.

UKIP in Dorset currently have serving: 1 County Councillor, 7 District/Borough Councillors and 2 Parish Councillors.

UKIP won the European Elections in May 2014 with a total of 4,376,635 votes nationally, returning 24 MEP’s including our first in Scotland. The South West region gained 2 UKIP MEP’s – William Dartmouth and Dr Julia Reid.

Towns, villages and communities within the Mid Dorset & North Poole Parliamentary Constituency include:

Local  issues affecting residents and communities in Mid Dorset and North Poole include:

Post Office closures, large-scale housing development, public transport cuts, potholes, landfill tax, wind turbine farms, reductions in policing.

Many issues concerning the residents of Dorset stem from EU directives, invariably brought in by our own government. Now is the time for common sense politics with common sense solutions.

UKIP is a patriotic party that believes in putting Britain first

Only UKIP will return self-government to the British people
