UKIP ready to field full set of candidates in Warrington's local elections

UKIP aims to stand in every ward in Warrington in the next local elections and the party is on the right tracks for a victory in four out of the 19 seats, said the head of UKIP in Warrington.

James Ashington, from Lymm, who will stand in Warrington South at the next General Election said the growing support from voters has put the party in a confident position to win seats from the Labour-led council.

The party saw a surge in the number of elected councillors across the UK, winning 153 council seats in the local elections last year.

It has never won a seat in Warrington.

Geoff Siddall, who will stand in the May elections, said: “UKIP are the new guys on the political landscape of Warrington. The party is gaining strength as the British people wake up to what’s really going on in the country.”

Last year, national party membership and support for UKIP grew to approximately 32,500, which is an increase of 13,000.

Mr Siddall said support for UKIP was on the increase in Warrington and that these numbers are destined to grow over the coming years.

He also rubbished claims that UKIP was a racist party and said that people would be scrutinised properly.

“Some people were getting in contact for the wrong reasons but we don’t put up with people coming into the party with a different agenda,” he added.

UKIP will also not have a party whip, which allow councillors to prioritise their residents’ interests rather than their party’s, said Mr Siddall.

He added: “We want to represent the views of the people. We are individuals.”

UKIP member Andrew Fairfoull added: “We are trying to bring a new kind of politics to Warrington. We want people to be able to trust politicians again.

“It’s about giving people another option and an alternative chance to vote.”

Mr Ashington was also questioned about a comment made by UKIP councillor David Silvester from Henley-on-Thames where he blamed recent storms and flooding on the Government’s decision to legalise gay marriage but he refused to comment on the matter.

Thirteen out of the 19 UKIP candidates for the election have been announced with the remaining to be revealed in the coming weeks.

Details on where the candidates will be standing will also be published within the next month.

Andrew Fairfoull, from Winwick, aged 58 Beverley Fairfoull, from Winwick, aged 61 David Bennett, from Fearnhead, aged 67 Derek Clark, from Lymm Ged Hall, from Latchford, aged 72 Geoff Siddall, from Birchwood, aged 54, Ian Richards, from Orford, James Ashington, from Lymm, aged 76 Michael Johnson, from Padgate, aged 41 Phil Henshaw, from Callands Richard Vaughan, from Callands Sidney Simmonds, from Latchford Tony Briggs, from Appleton, aged 55

(Actually one of them made me wonder if he should be sat there awaiting James Bond while stroking a white cat.)


As they are not under a party whip and therefore appear to be just a loose collection of, white, male, (with one token exception) middle-aged (at least) right-wing politicians , I suppose each one needs to clarify a number of things.

For example

1) Do they agree with the emphasis of UKIP of destroying large parts of public services?

2) Do they comply with the stance of their party that George Osborne hasn't gone far enough in his cuts?

3) Do they believe that Homosexuality is a n abomination and that floods are God's judgement for same-sex marriage?

4) Do the little ladies belong at home cleaning behind the fridge etc. and that any employer who employs a woman of child-bearing age needs their head examining.

Maybe after this election we will see just what the people of Warringtons opinions are on certain subjects, If UKIP win seats it will be because of the immigration and EU issue, If they don't win any then there is no immigration or EU issue. The only problem being that if there is an issue it cannot be solved at a local level.

UKIP will do well with the working age voters, just ask anyone who is looking for work in this town, all these massive industrial areas and not a single job going in any of them, why? they are all taken by foreigners!

The council is a joke too, i have a friend who is slovakian and she got a house through the council within 3 weeks of her being here, iv lived in warrington all my life and have been on the councils housing waiting list for 10 years and never been offered a property.

It will be a refrshing change for the council to be led by people who want whats best for the local people who want to keep living and working here, not the mass of eastern europeans.

So much for deporting criminals

UKIP's commonwealth spokesman lead a kidnapping gang

From the BBC

"...Mujeeb ur Rehman Bhutto's gang were behind a high-profile kidnapping in Karachi in 2004 and he then took a £56,000 ransom payment in Manchester.

In 2005, Bhutto, of Leeds, admitted being the gang's "boss" and was jailed for seven years by a UK court.......

....Bhutto said he had been granted political asylum in the UK in 2008 and that the case against him in Pakistan had been thrown out by the country's Supreme Court.

But senior Pakistani police sources insisted that Bhutto was still wanted in Pakistan.

In June 2004, a gang led by Bhutto kidnapped Ahmed Naeem, the son of a wealthy businessman, at gunpoint from a car on a Karachi residential street.

Five days later Bhutto flew to England.

He then negotiated a ransom payment with Mr Naeem's father, Mohammed Naeem........."

"...lets not forget the David Silvester was a conservative till he swapped over..."

He swapped because of UKIP's homophobic stance against Gay Marriage - so they surely can't have been too surprised when he came out with his Floods being God's punishment statement.

Perhaps the WG should change the heading to "UKIP ready to field full set of candidates in Warrington's local elections - unless one of the candidate's comes out with some racist, misogynist or homophobic c*** - or turns out to have served time for a serious criminal offence"
