Welcome to the Cotswolds Branch of the UK Independence Party

UKIP’s job is to ensure that the British people get what they voted for last summer – a removal of our country from the malign grip of the European Union. That means leaving the EU and its core institutions; it means making all of our laws in Westminster; it means no longer paying for the “privilege” of having a massive trade deficit with the EU; it means taking control of our borders and stopping unrestricted immigration; it means taking our place in the world as a fully-sovereign nation.

But UKIP is not just about Brexit. We are strongly opposed to the notion of giving 0.7% of GDP in Foreign Aid. Much of this money is wasted, or given to unaccountable organisations, or mis-applied to states with nuclear capabilities such as India and even North Korea. The £13,300,000,000 Foreign Aid budget would be better applied to reducing the deficit, increasing support for Social Care, rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, reducing taxation on working people, or improving the NHS.

UKIP would improve support of our veterans. As a result of Blair’s Wars there are numerous ex-servicemen suffering from serious injuries and mental health conditions including PTSD who are reduced to sleeping rough. We consider it unacceptable that those who have given their all for their country are not better looked-after by those of us they have fought to defend.

UKIP’s economic policy is designed to be a responsible application of scarce resources – balancing the books just as every family has to. We would not build HS2 – an unnecessary white elephant that is likely to cost the taxpayer over £60bn. Some of the fruits of these savings would be used to raise the basic rate income tax threshold to the same level as the National Minimum Wage – after all, if it’s a minimum, it shouldn’t be taxed.


Donate to UKIP and help us ensure “leave” means leave

And we want to encourage you to tell your eurosceptic friends, no matter which party they’ve previously voted for or been a member of, to come and join the People’s Army too. To make sure we get REAL Brexit.



Join the People’s Army today

So forward this e-mail to as many people as you can. Tweet and Facebook the membership link above.

Together, we can make the real change we voted for happen.

But if we leave it up to the establishment, we’ll likely be heading into the next General Election as members of the EU at worst, and with free movement and continued EU contributions at best.

Kind regards,

UKIP Campaign Team
