It seemed that a rather quiet and politics free summer would follow the County Council elections....but instead, to the surprise of everyone we are having a General Election. This blog will be following the UKIP Campaign as it develops.
Local MP Sir Gerald Howarth said today that he is standing down after over 30 years in parliament. He is well known to many in UKIP as he was one of the more committed and hard working campaigners for the Leave vote. We wish him well for the future. Who can forget his hijacking of Sir Walter Scott to join the Leave campaign:
"breathes there the man with soul so dead,
he never to himself hath said,
this is my own, my native land,
....and I want it back!"
Do not forget to register to vote. If you want to vote in the General Election then you will need to have registered by May the 22nd. Follow this link.
