Together we can make our party and our country great again

Member —
Together we can make our party and our country great again

I am so proud to be writing to you as the new Leader of our Party.

My decision to stand for the Leadership was based on a desire to see UKIP regain its drive, focus and self-belief. I know that the destiny of our party walks hand in hand with the future security and prosperity of our nation.

We have led before; bringing a referendum to the people of this country and then campaigning to secure the biggest mandate ever recorded in the UK. Now, what we see is a government in meltdown; consumed by their own divisions and incapable of delivering on the will of the British people. It will be down to us to see the job done, and failure is not an option.

Having emerged from the whirlwind of media interviews at conference, I’d like to extend my heartfelt thanks to those of you who were able to come to Torquay this weekend. Your enthusiasm made the Annual Conference a huge success.

A number of journalists were there expecting to report on dissension and division. What they saw was loyalty, unity, positive energy and a clear sense of purpose. There was a palpable atmosphere of optimism.

Now, having been trusted with the incredible honour and privilege to lead our party, I will be here at your service, I will serve to lead and together we will make this Party, and our country great again.

Thank you

Henry Bolton OBE
Party Leader


Nigel Farage writes in the Telegraph: Racists nearly killed Ukip this week, but we live to fight our most important battle

Nigel Farage writes in the Telegraph. Source.

Well, that was a close run thing.

I spent most of yesterday wondering whether after nearly a quarter of a century, my journey with UKIP was over. Be in no doubt that if the anti-Islam candidate Anne Marie Waters had won the party leadership, there would have been a mass walk-out of which I would have been a part.

Mercifully, sense prevailed, and disaster has been averted. Henry Bolton is our new leader and with him comes new hope for UKIP at a time when the party’s voice needs to be heard more than ever – a voice that was effectively mute over the past year as we lurched from crisis to crisis.

“Henry who?” I hear you say.

OK, I’m the first to acknowledge that Henry Bolton does not yet have a public profile. But he has something far more important that the other party leaders don’t – real life experience.

His career in the army, the police, the United Nations and the European commission show that he is a rounded individual with depth.

More than that, this is a man who in 2013 was honoured for services to international security and stabilisation in Afghanistan and who, before then, received an award for outstanding bravery while serving with Thames Valley Police.

At a time when the two main parties are led by people who lack the ability to stick to the course the country voted for on Brexit, Britain needs someone with the sort of courage that comes naturally to Henry Bolton and I have a feeling the patriotically-minded voters in this country will like him.

Indeed, not only did he get my vote, but I am more than prepared to help him. He will need my support.

I do worry that so many UKIP members voted for a leadership candidate in Anne Marie Waters who has such extreme views on the religion of Islam. The disappearance of the BNP has clearly led a hard-right faction to join UKIP and to try and take us in the wrong direction. In all my years as leader, that is exactly what I fought against.

In fact, former BNP members were not even allowed to join the party under my watch. While our opponents, including some who work for the BBC, always tried to label us as racists, this allegation was simply untrue.

In order to restore the kind of order UKIP previously enjoyed, the best solution now would be for those people like Waters to go off and do their own thing, perhaps even to start a new party if they wish.

Intolerance of the sort she peddles has no place in UKIP – a point, by the way, which Jeremy Corbyn has failed to make in any meaningful way when dealing with Labour’s anti-semitism problem.

The internal management structures of UKIP are a shambles.

It has a national executive which is incapable of making sensible political decisions. That they even allowed Waters to be a candidate, considering she was banned from standing at the general election, underlines my argument. Henry will have a huge job of work to do in order to professionalise UKIP, but he needs to do it as the political opportunities out there are now clear.

At the general election this year, UKIP and Brexit voters thought the party had done its job, had succeeded in its aims and was no longer necessary. Since then, our political classes have steadily progressed towards the great Brexit betrayal and there is now impatience and anger.

ver 3.5m Labour voters supported Brexit. Many were reassured by Jeremy Corbyn’s manifesto, which made clear Labour was for leaving the single market and ending the free movement of people. Now, all of that is gone, as Labour entrenches itself as the party of the London elite and becomes more pro-EU with every week that goes by.

Bolton’s first target audience must be the patriotic old Labour voters who’ve been treated with contempt by their leaders.

As for Theresa May, her abject performance in Florence proves that the Remainers in her cabinet are dictating events. While I am pleased to see Boris Johnson fighting back, this does have the appearance of being a rearguard action. Tory voters want someone to make the case that we did not vote for immigration to continue into the next general election, or for billions of pounds to be handed over to the European commission.

Our “Brexit means Brexit” Prime Minister has let us all down badly and we need a rejuvenated UKIP to start applying some pressure.

The journey for Henry Bolton will not be an easy one, but he will be a calm presence with no hint of intolerance or extremism. He brings fresh hope to a party that nearly died yesterday. Those who care about the future of Britain should be grateful for that.


UKIP Conference – What to take away

Good morning,

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.

Jack Smith

New Leader

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.

New Logo

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.”
