NORTH EAST SOMERSET is a desirable place to live but only UKIP will focus all year round on protecting local jobs, all that is good about our outstanding local environment, our cherished Green Belt, our national identity, culture, heritage, and sovereignty

THE ESTABLISHMENT PARTIES ARE LOSING ELECTIONS TO UKIP – that’s why they are now reluctantly talking about the issues that you care about, like immigration and the EU – don’t let them go back to their old habits

UKIP IS POPULAR – because our party is made up and supported by normal people who are simply sick and tired of their genuine concerns not being addressed by the “old” parties.

Never under-estimate what your support for UKIP can achieve

NEARLY FOUR MILLION PEOPLE VOTED FOR UKIP IN THE 2015 GENERAL ELECTION. Four times as many people voted for UKIP in 2015 than they did in the 2010 election. This sent a powerful message to the legacy parties. UKIP is now the third largest party in British politics in terms of vote share. Perversely, the Scottish National Party needed only 25,000 votes to gain a seat and thus achieved a disproportionate slice of power in Westminster, whereas over 3.5 million votes for UKIP only translated into one seat for Douglas Carswell MP who held our seat in Clacton. Despite this, UKIP scored a phenomenal number of second places – 120 all told (none in 2010) – proving that we have become the voice of opposition to the establishment in many constituencies. 

IN 2015 UKIP TOOK CONTROL OF A LOCAL AUTHORITY FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER. We took control of Thanet District Council and Ramsgate Town Council while many new UKIP Council Groups were formed. We won 189 local council seats nationally and we saw many new Councillors elected. Matthew Goodwin, a noted academic analysed the results and in London our vote share went up 6%, in the South West 9.5%, the South East 10.9%, East Midlands 12.2%, Eastern England 12.4% and in Yorkshire 13.8%. 

UKIP IS NOW GIVING A VOICE TO ORDINARY PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN NEGLECTED AND TAKEN FOR GRANTED FOR DECADES. With almost 4 million votes, we have one-third of the votes of the Conservatives, and 40% of those amassed by Labour. We have more than two-and-a-half times the votes of the SNP and more than three times those of the Greens. We have 21 times the votes of the DUP, who have eight seats in Parliament. Sadly, the country’s outdated voting system has resulted in nearly 4 million votes for UKIP gaining a minimal number of seats. UKIP therefore believes that the current electoral system is unfair and that it disenfranchised millions of people during the 2015 election. The electoral system is broken and is in need of fixing. We are therefore now taking up the cause of electoral reform together with many other parties who find themselves in a similar position to ourselves

GET INVOLVED – we are still the underdog compared to the establishment parties. We receive no government funding. All our campaigners are volunteers so if you want your voice heard, please give your time or donate to UKIP

UKIP’S NATIONAL MEMBERSHIP – has soared to an all-time high and Young Independence UKIP’s youth wing is flourishing –  membership has hit a record high

Newsflash! Well done to our candidate Ernie Blaber for successfully raising UKIP's profile in North East Somerset. UKIP's vote share here was 12% (up 8.6% on 2010). Massively proud to have helped UKIP to take 3rd place here ahead of LibDems and Greens. Lessons to be learned? It is now abundantly clear Labour never had any chance in North East Somerset.
