The Edgbaston, Northfield and Selly Oak branch and guests met at the Apollo Hotel on the 22nd of April to hear with great interest what Fiona McEvoy from the excellent Taxpayers Alliance (TPA) had to say about the budget and our spendthrift Government.  UKIP's flat tax policy was discussed as well as the innovative role of the TPA as watchdogs and guardians of the taxpayers' interest. 

This meeting was also the AGM and the three principal officers, Peter Hughes (Chair), Phil Crossley (Treasurer) and Phil Bertenshaw (Secretary) were commended for their hard work over the past year and re-elected for the new year. 

The Edgbaston, Northfield and Selly Oak branch will meet next on the 20th of May 2009 at 7.30 in Edgbaston.  Please contact ukip.ens.branch@googlemail.com or Mr Peter Hughes at  pjdhughes@tiscali.co.uk if you are a UKIP supporter and would like to join us.
