ONWARDS AND UPWARDS: UKIP Public Meeting In Wigan Shows Party Is Back
The UKIP event in Wigan on Tuesday night hailed a great success despite the Labour Party and Antifa attempt to spoil it by demonstrating outside. A thank you must go to the police for doing an excellent job at keeping the sad fascists a safe distance away.
Attendance was huge with many having to take a seat in the adjacent room as it was impossible to squeeze any more in.
The night started off with a heartfelt speech from UKIP’s Animal Welfare spokesperson Paula Walters, who has worked tirelessly to spread the word and bring about support for a ban on non-stun animal slaughter. Please can I ask you to sign the petition below to help implement this into UK law. If you are a Facebook user and would love to get involved you can keep up-to-date with the Animal Welfare Group here.
UKIP NEC member, Kate Fanning, was up next with a great and rather flamboyant speech regarding our much improved position under Gerard Batten’s leadership, compared to the previous, disastrous leader, Henry Bolton. Finances, membership and management massively improved and the party is now back to being a contender and fighting force for the people once again.
Young Independence Chair and NEC member, Nathan Rydings, followed on and again spoke positively about Gerard’s leadership and due to his inclusion of internet sensations like, Paul Joseph Watson, Sargon of Akkad and Count Dankula, the youth membership has increased dramatically, quite a positive and impressive move I believe.
Nathan also spoke how our youth love UKIP’s policies, so, all in all, great work and achievement going on in UKIP’s youth section and as he quite rightly put, our youth are extremely important to our future.
James Hadfield-Hyde, UKIP Trafford member and author of ‘Dawn Of The Final Caliphate’ was invited up to speak next. He gave a little insight into his book:
“It clearly and concisely illustrates the innumerable problems Islam faces within itself, without overburdening the reader with scriptural arguments as Imams themselves have struggled to agree over for many years. The book is aimed at enlightening those outside of the faith, as to the chronology of historical facts which has led us to the problems we face today. Jihadism cannot be defeated merely by containment, but firstly, by the removal of political correctness (something I’m sure many of you agree with entirely). Many Muslims seek a modern, and more tolerant ‘Reformation,’ but fear for the consequences if they speak out. It is to them that we must turn; there is hope for a peaceful coexistence only as long as we are all free to speak the truth.”
The final speaker before the interval was Séamus Martin who, along with Nate Rydings, had been elected Co-Chairman of UKIP in Greater Manchester in July 2018. Séamus gave a well-received speech which Gerard Batten later referenced twice in his own remarks.
Finally the moment we were all waiting for, our leader, Gerard Batten to the stage and to rapturous applause. He gave a fabulous speech, totally natural and completely down to earth, factual, inspiring and hopeful. This loyal gentleman is a far different speaker than the party has been used to, he is humble yet empowering to others and genuinely wants the best for UKIP and our country. Pleasantly he doesn’t have the egotistical persona I have witnessed by others. He had the full support of the audience throughout and received a standing ovation.
Questions ensued and of course, you guessed it, the Tommy Robinson debate had to be brought up at some point during the evening. “Do you think far right Tommy Robinson is a positive for UKIP” To which Gerard replied “He is not far right”. He went on to talk about Tommy’s massive following worldwide and how he is more than happy to share our news (in a time of fake news and deliberate slander surely that’s a good media outlet for our party?).
I was also very interested to hear how Tommy did indeed join BNP in 2004 but left very shortly after when, to his disgust, they refused entry to his black friend. A few years later he led EDL but again, left due to it becoming what he felt was far too right. Gerard confirmed in no way would he be associated with Tommy if he believed he was at all racist.
Another guest, yours truly, was very pleased to take the opportunity to thank him personally for his loyalty to the party and for saving UKIP from destruction and hoped he would stand in the forthcoming leadership election. He replied that he was looking forward to retirement and that he believes in bringing new leaders through. His term comes to an end in April but it has been agreed wisely by the NEC that this should be delayed until after the local elections on 3rd of May and he will make a decision then to his future.
I would just like to congratulate Chair of Wigan, Dalila Fearn and her team, for organising such a successful and thoroughly enjoyable event, well done.
Onwards and upwards, UKIP are back!
