PATRIOTIC YOUTHQUAKE CONTINUES: UKIP Youth Membership Up 83% After Brexit Betrayal
Kipper Central can exclusively reveal that UKIP’s youth membership has risen by 83% over the last two months, reaching a total of 1629 members.
As Kipper Central revealed earlier this month, UKIP’s youth membership has spiked since May, now approaching 2,000 members – its highest membership in years.
The membership of Young Independence – UKIP’s youth wing for all party members aged 30 and under – was at 1629 as of yesterday morning, an 83% rise from the figures at a similar point in May.
Between May 16th and July 20th, Young Independence’s membership increased by 83% from 889 to 1629, making this period of just over two months the best period for UKIP’s youth wing in years.
In fact, UKIP’s national membership has risen by well over 3,000 during this period – with that figure rising every day.
This major increase in the party’s membership is largely a result of a number of prominent online activists and YouTubers joining UKIP, as well as Theresa May’s ‘shameful’ Brexit betrayal.
Speaking exclusively to Kipper Central, Young Independence Chairman Nathan Ryding said: “Young Independence is now the fastest growing youth wing in the United Kingdom!
“We have achieved so much since I started my term as National Chairman and I am extremely happy to see such an increase.
“We will continue to grow throughout the rest of the year and YI will become a force to be reckoned with when it comes to campaigns and By-Elections.
“YI has a great future and I am proud to be its National Chairman during this time.”
Also speaking exclusively to Kipper Central earlier this month, UKIP’s Leader Gerard Batten said: “The sharp increase in the number of young people joining UKIP is good news. It shows that what we stand for is increasingly relevant to young people.
“UKIP is essentially the same as it was when we were founded in 1993: we want to live in a free, independent, democratic nation state, according to our own laws and traditions.
“But the issues around us have evolved, freedom has been eroded enormously in the last twenty-five years and it needs to be regained.
“Being the party of freedom and free speech is something younger people can relate to. UKIP is about what we want our country to be in the future, and to take that struggle forward we need younger people: so welcome aboard.”
