EXCLUSIVE: UKIP NEC Votes To Officially Support Veterans Against Terrorism As Members Join UKIP En Masse
Thousands of veterans are set to join the tide of those who have already signed up to the party under Gerard Batten’s leadership following a unanimous vote at Monday’s meeting to officially support the Veterans Against Terrorism Group.
The motion, which was proposed by Gerard Batten at a UKIP NEC meeting where the Veterans Against Terrorism leaders were present was passed unanimously without even any dissent or debate before the final decision.
Speaking exclusively to Kipper Central, UKIP Interim Leader Gerard Batten said: “I was very impressed with the Veterans against terrorism march in London last year. I subsequently met with a number of their representatives and we agreed we shared many beliefs and objectives.
“One thing we agreed on was that while marches are a great way to show support and make a point the only way to change things is through the ballot box. UKIP proved that by gaining and winning the Referendum.
“I am very pleased that leaders of the Veterans have decided to back UKIP and are encouraging their followers to join. This is an exiting development that will bring in new people and fresh ideas into the political fray.”
Also speaking to Kipper Central, one of the leaders of Veterans Against Terrorism – Richard Inman, said: “Time is short and the window to save the UK is closing, we must act now for the sake of our children, UKIP is the only political party in the game that can deliver the results we need.
“Brexit is being betrayed, UKIP must once again rise to the challenge and fight for the real people, the forgotten people of this great nation. We the working class people, veterans, football lads and all other patriots must mobilize en mass and join UKIP, together we are stronger!”
This NEC vote follows the Veterans Against Terrorism urging veterans to join UKIP en masse to help save the party and the country earlier this month.
Keen to build support among the “patriotic working class”, the Veterans Against Terrorism are very keen to work with UKIP to tackle issues like Brexit, terrorism and the growing number of career politicians.
The group are organising a number of rallies across the UK, with one last year in London with an estimated attendance of 70,000 – over double the number of UKIP members.
