BREAKING: Peter Whittle to Stand for Leader
Peter Whittle AM has today announced his decision to stand for the UKIP leadership. Launching his bid he said:
“I’ve always seen UKIP as a cultural movement…We are the party of patriotism. We are the party of the nation state”.
“We should be the party that talks about integration and not multiculturalism. Multiculturalism has been a huge failure, we’re seeing the results of that now, I’m afraid we’re not out of the woods on that one. Can you really see the Tory Party or the Labour Party or the Lib Dems, or any of them really seriously addressing these issues?
“We will. I always have, from the very moment I joined this party. Now would be the chance for me to take the party forward in that direction”.
The entry of Mr Whittle into the race is another new dynamic and I look forward to hearing what he has to say.
