The referendum on EU membership would never have happened without UKIP. On 23rd June 2016, 44,352 people in Bath & North East Somerset voted to leave the European Union, which contributed to the 52% majority of 17.4 million voters who voted unequivocally to leave. This was a policy aim that UKIP had been fighting to achieve.
UKIP’s determination threw the political establishment into confusion.
Now that the country has spoken, UKIP is fighting to make sure Britain becomes a free, democratic and successful country again.
There is still work for us to do. One of our key aims is to make certain that the government respects and implements the will of the people. We now call on all politicians to accept the result of the referendum. The priority now is to take back control and regain our sovereignty.
The clock is ticking. The UK invoked Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty on March 29th 2017. This gave two years notice that Britain is officially leaving the EU. Time runs out on April 29th 2019. The UK will then automatically leave the EU (unless all EU members agree on a different timetable). Only then can we celebrate the United Kingdom becoming a truly self-governing nation once again.
If the establishment conspires to obstruct the will of the people, UKIP is still here to hold the government to account and we will do everything in our power to force Theresa May to deliver.
