It’s time to bring power back to local people

image_galleryUKIP’s local government spokesman Peter Reeve writing for the Local Government sets out our party’s local priorities:

“Services are stretched due to the government’s irresponsible commitment to an EU open door immigration policy; UKIP will change this and put local people first. We want to keep the NHS free and oppose Labour and Conservative attempts to privatise it. UKIP will also prevent developers from concreting over the countryside, protect our pensioners, look after our veterans and help our young people seeking work while opposing parking charges and road tolls.”

And what about emissions and pollution from its proposed 150 foot chimney? These can be just as harmful. Continue reading

Surrey’s Conservatives, who have presided over decades of neglect of our local roads, expect it to take 15 years to fix our roads. It will probably take much longer. Tory mismanagement has also caused a huge bill to compensate cyclists and motorists involved in pothole accidents. Continue reading
