Marching on

York Press: Marching on Marching on

I WOULD like to thank the 11,294 people that voted for UKIP in the EU elections in York and turned not only this great city purple but also Yorkshire and Humberside.

I also extend a huge thank-you to the York team who worked tirelessly.

It was a shame that neither of our MPs were present, nor our council leader – but so be it!

However, the people have spoken and shown that enough is enough; they have had enough of not being heard, of their needs being ignored once the political elite gain power, and they want change.

UKIP is with you, because we are you. We are disillusioned ex-Conservatives, Labourites and LibDems and we too have had enough and only due to this ignorance on behalf of the LibLabCon Parties have we come into being.

We stand beside you, not in front or above looking down, and we will work tirelessly to ensure we get MPs who will truly represent what you want from your Government.

Please do not hesitate to contact any one of us with any concerns you have or if you have a problem that you are not getting help with.

To conclude – thank you, the people’s army marches on.

Judith Morris, Chair, UKIP York Vice Chair, Yorkshire and Humberside, Moorland Road, York.

UKIP is a party funded by a multi millionaire.

Apart from being against the other parties and Europe, what on earth does it stand in favour of?

Who exactly are its local representatives? What are its local policies?

Now we find just three days after being elected, a UKIP Councillor has been suspended for racist comments. Electors will be reading the small print on the label next time

Judith, I think that instead of thanking the 11294 people who voted for the kippers it would be less disingenuous of you to thank the 60% of the electorate that didn't vote.
Enjoy your time in the sun. Oblivion awaits the kippers in 2015.

With the likes of the people above who can only spout criticism towards a party that clearly had massive backing, years ago while I was a member of a certain party and canvassed the council estates of York, one comment came through loud and clear, which was '' I have voted labour all my life and always will do '' which left me thinking, one could put a Red Rosette on a pig wearing a paper hat and they will vote for it.

UKIP is with you, because we are you

No Judith, you are not me/us.
You have a searchable history on this site of hating cyclists. I often ride a bike, You have declared me the greatest menace and backed that up with lies and prejudice, so you are not with me.

I and everyone I know are happy in the knowledge that "Great" in Great Britain refers to land mass, UKIP rhetoric says otherwise. You are not with us.

"People's army" indeed! Total spin.

Another one who can't do his arithmetic....

York: 100% - (30.91% x 23.88%) = 92.6% (NOT 97%)

No surprises there, just look at the mess Labour left the economy in!!!
