In an interview with the BBC on the weekend, UKIP Leader Nigel Farage said that Britain should honour the 1951 declaration on refugee status and permit those fleeing the civil war in Syria to come to the UK.
He is the only senior political leader in the UK to publicly advocate this compassionate policy.
Following the interview, The Daily Telegraph, not normally known for its support of UKIP, today addressed the issue coming out in full support of Mr Farage and clearly stating why.
You can read the article here: “Advantage Farage in the immigration debate”
It should be compulsory reading for every UKIP member and supporter and we urge you to share the link so that others may learn for themselves why we are advocating this move.
Also, Nigel will be on BBC Radio 2′s Jeremy Vine Show at noon today (Monday) discussing the issue. Tune in, if you can.
Thank you for your continued support.

Countdown to Empty Shelves
There is now a gamut of regulatory measures being imposed by the UK government – most of it as a result of instructions from Brussels – making it increasingly difficult to get many natural products. Herbs like Boswellia (Indian Frankincense), Harpagophytum (Devil’s Claw) and the all important sunshine vitamin D, and minerals like magnesium and zinc.
According to the …
Bring it on Clegg
UKIP are going to beat you
The great British public know what you are up to
And all we have to do is tell the truth
Well it’s almost a relief to see one of the EU’s leading agents in the UK starting manoeuvres ahead of what will surely become one of the most bitterly fought battles for Britain’s future any of us will have ever seen.
The immigration invasion is under way, millions and millions of foreign voters have been dumped on the UK’s democratic and social system. The forces for a free Britain could not get their message out in time to stop it completely. Weighed down by a silent media who would not report on the treachery of successive UK governments since Heath’s time.
“For at least the second time in a year, his wish to visit Ireland was not too subtly refused — first to launch the EU jobs and growth programme at a big conference in Dublin during the presidency and then to celebrate Ireland’s exiting the bail-out. ”

Open Europe: Daily Press Summary 19 December 2013
New Open Europe briefing: Open Europe’s EU war games show that Cameron risks defeat in Europe unless he ups his game;
Mats Persson: Jumping from headline to headline is a sure way to end up pleasing no one
Open Europe has today published a new briefing containing a comprehensive analysis of the first session – the reform and renegotiation scenario – from last week’s simulated UK-EU negotiations. The exercise showed that sweeping EU reform is fully possible. However, bringing the simulation back to reality, Open Europe concludes that David Cameron has fallen behind the curve in Europe, currently suffering from poorly joined up initiatives and short-term thinking. The briefing sets out ten specific lessons that David Cameron can learn when negotiating a new deal with the EU. The Times trails the briefing, noting that Open Europe drew the conclusion “after extensive conversations with Whitehall figures, European partners and conducting a real-time ‘war game’.”
Chelmsford MP Simon Burns
Chelmsford UKIP member John Theedom wrote to his MP after reading the article “THIS IS IMMINENT: EU CRIMINAL JUSTICE IS THREATENING OUR CIVIL LIBERTIES
, posted on ukipessex.org December 17th, 2013. The article was written by Torquil Erikson. The article shows how the EU is encroaching and undermining our system of justice, John Theedom wanted to know what Simon Burns was doing about it.
Original question and response below, response first…
When I launched UKIP’s Energy Policy in 2012 with the claim that we faced blackouts by 2020, I had a nagging concern that perhaps I was being too alarmist. But I’m sorry to say that with hindsight, I clearly wasn’t being alarmist enough.
We now have Captains of Industry coming forward to warn of blackouts not in 2020, but in the next couple of years. First there was Paul Massara, CEO of N-Power, saying “he did not know if the UK would get through next winter“. He was followed by Keith Anderson, Chief Corporate Officer of Scottish Power, saying similar things, and especially concerned that the government’s carbon tax will force coal-fired power stations to close before replacement capacity is on-stream. He also notes, rightly, that coal is just about the cheapest source of electricity. Forcing coal-fired power plants to close is a recipe for higher prices.

And in UKIP they have found a voice to resist you, the Labour party, and panicking Conservatives - and the elite political class
The first priority of every government is the nations security and defence, therefore if you are an enemy of the state you would try to undermine our countries defences and by that I mean not just its military ability to defend itself but also to undermine and render useless its system of laws and governance which protect it from forces which seek to enslave us and do us harm.
You have failed.
Conservative front bencher MP Anna Soubry apologised unreservedly for the following immortal words
“Nigel Farage looks like he enjoys a finger up his bottom”
When Conservative coalition ministers resort to personal attacks in the place of rational political argument and analysis, and do so in a public forum, one cannot but wonder at the potential for irrational personality driven mayhem and false policy within the government itself.
Having someone like this on the front bench – happily spouting thoughtless drivel – speaks volumes about Cameron’s judgement and the Conservative’s fitness for Government.

In a Fishing Committee meeting in the European Parliament (16.12.13), Stuart Agnew MEP gives his views on the bleak fish stocks situation in the Mediterranean and on funding for the remedial work required.
