UKIP fund raising website

Right, a holiday, travel and hotel accomodation website has been set up to raise funds for UKIP, delegates to the recent conference in Bournemouth were given details and further details are about to be announced in the imminent issue of the Independence magazine.

Basically if you, relatives or friends are travelling anywhere and require flights, train travel, package holidays, insurance, hotel rooms we have linked up with most of the major travel and accomodation firms in the country and by clicking on the banner adverts in the relevent sections on the site you will be taken straight through to the normal sites operated by these firms.
By making your booking by going through our links to the sites you would have used anyway, the firms involved will know by tracking that the booking has come via our UKIP site and will pay us a % commission of your total spend which will be distributed to branches and YI.

So to summarise, if you are going anywhere or booking a holiday please check out our site and if what you want is on our pages you will raise money for UKIP at no extra cost to yourself simply by using the same sites that you would have used anyway.

Please spread the word and use the site yourselves where possible.

Chorley smoke ban rebel to address UKIP meeting

The UK Independence Party (UKIP) is to hold a public meeting in Chorley next week.

The meeting will take place at The Swan With Two Necks pub, Hollingshead Street in the town centre, on Wednesday, October 15, to enable local people to meet UKIP members.

North West chairman Phil Griffiths will be chairing the meeting, which starts at 7.15pm, and will outline the party’s plans both locally and nationally.

Well known publican Nick Hogan, whose wife is licensee at the premises, will also be addressing the meeting about the effects of the smoking ban on the pub trade.

“This outrageous ban has had a devastating effect on the licensed trade with about 30 pubs closing a week.

"I have taken a stand which landed me in court but I am determined to pursue this matter and plan to go to the Court of Appeal.

“Publicans should have the right to decide if their pub is a smoking or non-smoking premises or have designated smoking rooms with efficient ventilation systems,” said Mr Hogan.

“I am a great believer in the freedom to choose,” he added.

UKIP’s North West candidate for next year’s Euro elections, Paul Nuttalll, who is also party chairman, will also be speaking at the meeting.

Those present will have the opportunity to ask questions and afterwards meet members of the North West team to discuss any outstanding issues.
