Well Done UKIP Glasgow.

Ramsay Urquhart and
Mark Bekusch
 Many people said it could not be done, that it was the wrong time and place to campaign, however two members of YI and the Glasgow Branch took to the streets in Glasgow and staked UKIP's claim that it was here in Glasgow and here to stay.
The current secretary of the branch Mark Bekusch and ex Secretary Ramsay Urquhart decided that it would be important to let the Glasgow public know that UKIP is a serious political force in order to launch the campaign, in an opening salvo, in one of the busiest streets in Glasgow's Argyle St.
Accompanied by Alan Craig from an anti EU pressure group & armed with leaflets, banners, The Daily Express supplement and a petition, the members set up a stand in Argyle St, Glasgow
The table stand was very well received by those members of the public who are currently aware of the destructive nature of our ongoing EU Membership, they were especially indignant that this was forced upon them without any recourse to a referendum.
Other uninformed members of the public, who were reticent at first, became engaged and animated when it was explained what membership of the EU actually meant. They could not sign the petition asking for a referendum soon enough.
YI Scotland rep Ramsay Urquhart says "It is important that the public gets involved in democracy as people are fighting against oligarchy and autocracy in Egypt while we in Britain, although not as bad, are continually denied our right to decide wether we should be in or out of Europe."
The worries explained to the Branch members included Immigration; causing job losses, Great Britain's overstretched public services and the divisive nature of our countries multicultural policies. Other members were dismayed that while the government cuts defence, welfare, education among other budgets yet increases; foreign aid, payments to foreign banks, failing EU states and the Euro.
The public assumed because of the "Get Britain out" Daily express Union Jack posters displayed on the stand that it may have been BNP. When they found out it was UKIP they could not have been nicer. This was an important display that it was time all Britons took back ownership of the national flag, the union jack,back from extremists.
UKIP Glasgow proudly displayed the flag and it was also important that both members taking part were also Young Independence members under 35.
UKIP Glasgow Branch secretary and Community Councillor Mark Bekusch says "with the momentum building, the branch becoming more decisive and press and public opinion behind us, the time to start is now. Scotland needs patriotic representation, Scotland needs the UK Independence Party. With our Glasgow branch members support, 2011 may just be our breakthrough year."
With 4 pages of Signatories the petition was also a success.
UKIP Scotland says Glasgow will be a tough nut to crack but if the momentum continues, Glasgow may yet turn from Red to Magenta in May.

UKIP Aberdeen would like to say well done to Glasgow UKIP for leading the way.  We have slowly been building up our presence in Aberdeen and are due to hit the streets soon. Their is finally hope for the people of Scotland.

Or better still contact  Andrew Lovie, Branch Secretary on  01224 583014. Our group in Aberdeen is growing and this will be a big year for us where we hope to establish UKIP as one of the main parties in Aberdeen and the whole of Scotland.

Even if you are not sure about UKIP, please feel free to come along and ask questions as to where we stand as a party. We don't bite and welcome views and opinions from people who may not  normally vote UKIP.  Perhaps we can convince you that UKIP, is the party that will best look after the interests of the British people and our country.

Happy New Year

Sorry for the delay in wishing all our readers a Happy New Year, and prosperous 2011. very un-Scotsman of me to take so long. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas break, because that's what it was, not Winter festival as Aberdeen council like to call it. I suppose its just another example of the continuous destruction of our country that's currently happening, under the control of the old parties. But this year their is hope in the form of the Scottish Parliament and local elections.
People will be able to halt the destruction of our nation by voting for UKIP in May.
As the tax rises hit home, along with a drop in services, and quality of life, it is worth remembering some of the points that show why we are in such a mess.

1, Greedy bankers and multi national companies
2, The Millions we pay the EU every DAY.
3, Treacherous, sell out politicians who do not care about our country.
4, Political correctness, that sees criminals given more rights that law abiding people
5, Mass immigration and a benefits system that pays for anyone who reaches our shores.
6, Benefits system that traps people, in a circle of unemployment.
7, Illegal war in Afghanistan that's seeing more and more of our heroes returned home in boxes, as well as costing us the British tax payers Billions.
8, Soft on crime sentences, that are a mockery and insult to those that have been victims of crime
9, A loss of common sense, where by even the simplest decisions seems beyond that of so called leading lights.


And it is that I wish people to remember, as we need a party in power that will spill the beans on the EU, and let the public know what effects the ludicrous decisions made in Brussels has on our life.

That is why I will ask you all to pick up a copy of the Daily Express, which is free this Saturday, because it is running  a massive get us out of Europe campaign. finally one newspaper has taken the step to publish the truth. if you read it you will see how we have been betrayed, and you will find out where all our tax money is going. if you want our children to have a future please read the Daily Express and vote UKIP.

This blog will be updated on a more regular basis, as we gear up for the elections...
