 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.

WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT?

THE TWO MOST SIGNIFICANT POLITICIANS OF RECENT TIMES.... and one of them is the current leader of our party!

Donald Trump and Nigel FarageNigel Farage has said there is a "real opportunity" for improved UK trade with the US, but politicians must apologise to Donald Trump after criticising him.

After meeting the president-elect - the first UK politician to do so - the UKIP leader said "be in no doubt" that Trump was a supporter of the UK, willing to be "very close partners."

Critics of Mr Trump should "stop whingeing" and "just get on with it."

Mr Trump, who takes office in January, has said the UK is a "special place".
