MAKE YOUR COUNCIL WORK FOR YOU
Local issues are best managed by local people. UKIP don’t insist on councilors following a party whip. Even if you’re not a national UKIP voter, your concerns may be best voiced by voting UKIP locally. Local Tory councillors promise to support local issues but then vote on a national whip, such as HS2, Brexit, Heathrow.
