Conference 2015

Conference 2015

As the Chairman of UKIP South Suffolk, here are some of my notes on the 2015 Conference at Doncaster. It reflects the items which I found of interest or which warrant further exposure.  The 2015 conference at Doncaster produced another direct and forceful speech by Nigel Farage MEP, who is looking for strong support for the referendum from UKIP and […]

This Might Raise Your Blood Pressure

I walked into the Doctor’s surgery the other day, and instead of the familiar mercury in glass blood pressure measuring instrument there was a brand new pressure gauge. Well, of course you might assume that this would be more accurate than the old mercury in glass type, but you would be wrong. Mercury in glass is the gold standard. The […]

The three leaders questioned

The three leaders questioned

The three ‘leaders’ were questioned by an audience at the BBC. These leaders were of course the three stooges: Cameron, Miliband and Clegg, who had to stand in front of an audience and answer their questions, each one being given 30 minutes. Alone.

The Campaign

The Campaign

We are in the ‘short period’ in the run up to the election on May 7th. It is the time to put into action our leaflet campaign on the doorsteps and to step up to the public hustings.
