I wasn’t at the conference, though I ruddy wish I had been.
Why? Well, new leader, new direction, new logo. Personally, I feel optimistic for UKIP’s future, and haven’t felt this positive since the referendum was called.
So, what are the two main points to take away, see below, and happy reading.
Yes! The lengthy leadership election of 2017 is over, and our new leader is Henry BOLTON OBE. The results for the Leadership election were as follows:
7th – Aiden Powlesland – 85 votes 0.65%
6th – Jane Collins – 566 votes 4.4%
5th – Peter Whittle – 1413 votes 10.9%
4th – John Rees Evans – 2021 votes 15.6%
3rd – David Kurten – 2201 votes 17%
2nd – Anne Marie Waters – 2755 votes 21.3%
1st – Henry Bolton – 3874 votes 29.9%
You can see Henry Boltons first press conference below.
UKIP – For the Nation
Great Britain. United Kingdom. Sovereign State
This is the party’s new branding, as voted for at conference.
“The Lion is alert, he is watchful and ready to roar, his mane reflects the shape of the union flag, he looks out and forwards with energy and purpose.”
Expect to see this logo on future UKIP merchandise and literature. As you can tell, North Norfolk was ahead of the curve, adopting this new logo within 5 minutes of it’s announcement at conference on it’s online profiles.
Out Now campaign – launching soon!
We should be out now!
On 23 June 2016 the British people voted by a majority of 1.3 million to Leave the EU. It was the largest democratic decision ever taken in this country.
The Government was charged with negotiating our exit, by March 2019. They have met the EU’s demands at every stage, offering to
• Extend their control over us by several years
• Keep paying them billions every year
• Keep our borders open for years more
• And give their court a right to meddle in our laws
The Labour and Lib-Dem parties both go along with this.
Still, the EU will not start negotiating in good faith. They want to punish us for taking our country back.
We say enough is enough. We should be OUT NOW
We should repeal the 1972 European Communities Act, withdraw from the negotiations and invite the EU to come back when they are ready to talk sensibly about mutual trading arrangements.
Only pressure from UKIP forced the Government to give us a referendum. Only pressure from UKIP got our country back. Only pressure from UKIP can make sure it happens now.
Send a message to the Government now, by signing up to support the OUT NOW campaign. Tell Mrs. May, Mr. Corbyn, Mr. Blair and Mr. Clegg this:
“We want to be fully out of the EU by March 2019, controlling our own borders, making our own laws, and spending our money on ourselves. No payment of ransom, no more open borders, no UK jurisdiction for European courts, no ‘transition’ period.
“Do it, or we will punish your parties at the ballot box.”
I will JOIN the UKIP People’s Army to ensure Brexit happens
