This morning’s email to Theresa May and
“Dear Prime minister,
this week one of your party donors, Jeremy Hosking, has stated publicly “those who think the Government is vacillating or making a mess of Brexit due to incompetence are wrong. It is part of a strategy, it’s going to plan and the inference from experience of Brexit Express is that the Prime Minister herself is probably implicated.”
Please allow me to assure you that Mr Hosking is not the only one who holds this belief. In fact he is by far and away not the only one to have realised this. There are many of us who reached this conclusion shortly after your installation as Conservative leader, when it became obvious that your prevarication over sending the Article 50 notice was intended to give the remain campaign time to regroup and mount its challenges to the referendum result.
It has been abundantly clear since then that you have contributed deliberately to the uncertainty and controversy surrounding the UK’s Brexit negotiations and that your preferred option, should you be unsuccessful in sabotaging our exit, is to remain tied to the EU in such a way that we will have left in name only.
You are fooling some of us but, not all of us and the number of those who are seeing through what you are doing is rapidly increasing daily.
You are deluding yourself if you believe you will get away with this.
Following Donald Trump’s threat to impose tariffs on European car exports to the US Christopher Mills, the UKIP business spokesman has pointed out the positive impact on the UK’s negotiating position over Brexit.
Mr Mills said,
“It his clear from the way in which European manufacturers have responded that they are committed to low tariffs with their economic partners. What they say about the US counts just as well for the UK.
“Bernhard Mattes, the president of the German car manufacturers association the VDA has said ‘The German car industry has always pushed for the mutual dismantling of tariffs worldwide and for free trade treaties’. Quite so Mr Mattes, quite so”.
Time and time again we see that our Government goes to Brussels with its tail between its legs, begging for scraps from the EU’s table. But if they were only to listen to what people outside Government on the continent are saying they would realise that it is they that hold the cards.
“There is no reason at all that with good will and this strong hand the UK can get an excellent trade deal with the EU, one that would be supported by the vast majority of people and businesses both here and across the channel”, said Mr Mills.
“On the anniversary of the Manchester Arena attack and the murder of Lee Rigby, I would like to add my voice, on behalf of UKIP, to those calling for a Terrorism Memorial Day.
“Over many years we have experienced a growing toll of victims of senseless acts of terrorism from different perpetrators. It would be fitting to remember all the victims on the same day.
“However, the day should not be used to express passive sentimentality towards these outrages but to focus our minds on the practical measures that need to be taken to combat terrorism and the ideologies that promote it.
“Sadly, the roll call of the innocent victims of terrorism is likely to be added to, however much we hope not, and remembering these people is of no use unless there is a resolve to tackle the causes of terrorism.
“Meanwhile we pay our respects and offer our sympathies to the victims and families of people such as the Manchester bombing and Lee Rigby”.
Former UKIP Assembly and Westminster Candidate, Veteran and long-serving Councillor, Robert Hill has been appointed as UKIP Spokesman for Northern Ireland by UKIP Leader, Gerard Batten MEP
Speaking after the appointment, Robert Hill said:
“I am delighted to represent the party in this role at a vital time and I look forward to welcoming Gerard back to Northern Ireland next month.”
“The Government and those that prop it up are failing to deliver the EU Exit that 17.4 Million of us voted for. Brexit means complete exit and that means no special status or half in arrangements.
“UKIP is the authentic party of true Brexit locally and nationally and we will continue to defend the democratic wishes of the people.”
Commenting further, Robert added:
“Locally, we have well paid MLA’s, but no sitting Stormont Assembly. The old parties hold talks about more future talks; yet civil servants continue to make the key decisions on vital services with no direction. Where else would this happen?
“It’s clear from the past fifteen months of limbo that the structures and current outdated model of devolution have failed us.
“It’s time for the Government to think again and look towards new models of Governance for Northern Ireland: One such idea would be empowering the local council’s.
UKIP will outline our ideas and policies in the weeks and months ahead.”
“There is a need for a patriotic, UK-wide movement standing up for the people of this great nation. UKIP has been and will continue to be that voice.”
