UKIP’s Young Independence Appoints 5 New Council Members in Scotland
UKIP’s youth wing, Young Independence, has appointed 5 new officers to its Scotland Council. The appointments – which prove UKIP is gaining momentum with the youth and the Scots – follow the unopposed election of four new regional chairmen last month and of Reece Coombes as South West regional Chairman this month.
Speaking exclusively to Kipper Central, Stewart McLuckie – the Chairman of Young Independence Scotland – said “After my plans to restructure the way YI Scotland is run, I’m very pleased to have appointed my first set of regional representatives and assistant officers.
“All of the appointed candidates have been long-standing and vigorous members of our party and I am confident that they will do their jobs well.
“I hope that this restructure emphasises the importance of localism, cutting down needless bureaucracy and rewarding hard work when you see it.”
Connor Campbell has been appointed to the Secretary role, Jack Jardine to Mid Scotland and Fife Representative, John Steven to North Scotland Representative and Carl Dean Pearson to Media Officer and Central Scotland Representative. This leaves only South Scotland Representative to be appointed – a huge change from where the party was in Scotland just a few years ago.
