Delighted that UKIP in Northern Ireland were able to welcome a selection of our leadership candidates to the Province.

UKIP Leadership Hustings held in Holiday Inn Belfast.

In addition to Ben Walker not being unable to attend due to his wife just giving birth, congratulations to them both from all party members here in Northern Ireland, Richard Braine not to be outdone sent this video. Richard had two different flights cancelled. We were delighted to welcome Gareth Bennett in place of Ben Walker.

Richard Braine sends his best wishes from a pub near Liverpool Street.

This clip from Richard Braine was particularly welcome, perhaps in some way helping to negate the Batten Bashing sentiment from the other candidates.
