William Cash Jr, the Founder of Spear’s Magazine, has announced that he is joining UKIP.
William, who is the son of veteran Conservative MP, Bill Cash, is being appointed Heritage spokesman for UKIP and is hoping to be selected for the party in the Midlands for the general election next year.
Nigel Farage, UKIP’s leader said: “I am delighted to be welcoming William to the party and am appointing him as our Heritage spokesman. William was deeply involved in the revision stage of the NPPF to strengthen protection for heritage and was invited by the government to submit a report on the implications to heritage of the NPPF. He is a member of the Historic Houses Association and also works with such conservation bodies as the Churches Conservation Trust and other leading heritage bodies. He has vast experience in the field and will be a great addition to the team, working closely with Stuart Agnew on Countryside matters and Peter Whittle on Cultural affairs”.
Braintree MP, Mr. Brooks Newmark has resigned from his government post after sending X-rated pictures of himself to an undercover journalist.
The journalist, working for the Sunday Mirror, posed as a young female Tory researcher, sent revealing photos of “herself” to the MP. He responded by sending graphic photos in which he exposed himself while wearing red and blue paisley pyjamas.
What ever you think of his action and you could say what people get up to in their private lives is up to them, but you just have to question the judgement of a man who could be duped so easily. After all several other MP’s were tweeted by the reporter but they did not respond.
Michael Fabricant, the Conservative MP, has said: “The Good news for the Tory party is that he has not defected to Ukip.” Does he think, we in Ukip, would want any member who wears red paisley pyjamas?
A series of five articles by M D G Randall
Although 70% of the UK’s adults are said to be savers, Mervyn Randall says that Governments of the UK retain their acceptance of continuous inflation, and treat their Savers badly. Ask, how can this be? Do Savers understand? Based on the presumption that lack of understanding is the culprit, Mervyn Randall has set-out an explanation of each of the five possible cases of Savings Arithmetic which the Saver might encounter during these times of positive inflation. Negative inflation is called deflation.
Botched ruling: The Electoral Commission’s decision to allow “An Independence From Europe — UK Independence Now” to appear on ballot papers at the top of the list of candidates probably cost Nigel Farage’s UKIP two MPs (credit: Getty Images)
Anyone who cares about the hardware of democracy should be concerned that in the European Parliamentary election on May 22, 2014, almost a quarter of a million people voted for an unknown political party called “An Independence from Europe”, which did not even exist until March 26, 2014. This new name, with the slogan “UK Independence Now” alongside it, appeared on ballot papers in every region, earning this fledgling political party tens of thousands of votes all over the country — and this happened with the full approval of the Electoral Commission.

In a surprise announcement at UKIP’s Doncaster conference, Mark Reckless the (former) Conservative MP for Rochester and Strood has left the Conservative party and joined the UKIP ranks.
Having won the Rochester and Strood seat in 2010 with a majority of over 9000, Mr. Reckless stated that the Conservative leadership was “part of the problem that is holding the country back” and that the voters felt “ripped off and lied to”.
His resignation means that another by-election will be called.
In what appears to be becoming the standard Conservative party response, they have labeled his resignation “illogical”.
What an inspirational day. From the first speaker, we had barnstorming speech after barnstorming speech, culminating with Nigel Farage in cracking form (which you can see here, if you missed it). After a warm welcome to Doncaster (including mention of the 20+ Doncaster council employees on £100,000+ per annum, while Doncaster has the lowest wages in England), Jane Collins was the first of our MEPs to take to the stage.
A new petition has been launched that urges Labour leader Ed Miliband to show that he supports democracy by instructing the 41 Labour MPs in Scotland to refrain from debating or voting on matters than are currently devolved. It also asks for a full debate on the revision of the Barnett Formula which allocates spending in the 4 countries making up the UK.
So far just under 2,000 signatures have been received since it was launched only a few hours ago – and you can add your signature here http://www.voiceforengland.com/

The long awaited recall of Parliament to discuss ISIS has finally been announced. It’s happening on Friday. That just happens to be the day at Conference when the UKIP manifesto will be revealed, the day on which Nigel Farage will give his main speech.
