UKIP to field record number of candidates in Worcester City Council elections

Worcester News: UKIP leader Nigel Farage: planning ahead UKIP leader Nigel Farage: planning ahead

THE UK Independence Party has revealed it will field a record number of candidates in May's local elections - amid hopes it can make an historic breakthrough.

The Worcester branch of UKIP says it will contest "at least" eight of the 12 available seats at the city council.

Such a tally could have a dramatic impact on the end result because Nigel Farage's party has soared to record popularity levels in the polls.

At the moment there are no UKIP city councillors, and in the last district elections of 2012 it only fielded four candidates.

The party is still working on beefing up the final number and says it could hit double figures.

Earlier this month an Ipsos MORI poll put UKIP on a 15 per cent approval rating, well ahead of the Liberal Democrats on just nine per cent and in third place overall.

Fielding candidates across the city could hamper both the Conservatives and Labour, neither of whom have enough councillors at the moment to form a majority administration.

UKIP is also campaigning on a pledge to offer free Worcester parking for at least three hours a day in the hope it will tempt voters.

Steve Davis, chairman of UKIP's Worcester branch said: "In 2011 we had no candidates and in 2012 it was four, so it shows how far we've come.

"We're going into it with cautious optimism. Part of the national picture is that the polls are more favourable than one year ago, so as far as we're concerned everything is up for grabs.

"UKIP is a national movement but we need a basis in local government and that's what we're looking for."

Last year UKIP won its first ever seats at Worcestershire County Council, with four candidates being elected.

Two of them have since resigned and another, Tony Baker, died of a heart attack leaving just one remaining, Councillor Stuart Cross.

The party says in Worcester it wants to offer three hours free parking during the day, as well as during the evening, set at around 6pm onwards.

Such a move would lead to a massive loss of income for the council but UKIP says it would boost traders and encourage more people to come in.

The Conservatives have pledged to cut parking if they regain power, but Labour has called the idea "fantasy budgeting" that would lead to cuts elsewhere.

Labour, the Tories and Greens plan to field candidates in all 12 wards.

The elections are on Thursday, May 22.

Correct.

I get lots of leaflets through the door from various companies trying to sell me something.

However I don't buy anything unless I have a good long and hard look at what it is they are offering and whether another company has an offer that better reflects my needs.

Like most voters I'm also disillusioned by what the main parties have to offer, but I'm certainly not going to be voting for a party who's main raison d'être is anti EU and who's candidates have repeatedly demonstrated their racists, sexist and homophobic tendencies and don't even have a manifesto that stacks up at a local government level.

I respect everyones right to vote for who they like. Indeed I would encourage more to get out and vote. In doing so I do however hope that voters will have a detailed look at the policies and morals of the party they are voting for.

Well, UKIP are relative newcomers on the Worcester scene and have made progress recently. They've been around for 20 years but its only in the last couple they've really emerged to become a threat to the local establishment, who have been too cosy in ruling the roost.

They've put out literature and some local policies; a good start.
They'll be getting my vote, and not just because I want to give Labour and the Tories a good kicking

If the local electorate are to make considered decisions about whether UKIP represent their best interests locally and for the wider community why is what UKIP stand for such a secret and only available to their own supporters?

So exactly which of their Local Government policies will you be voting for that are so different to what the 'old guard' are proposing?
For a start, taking a tough line on executive council pay, and then there's the party's stance on development; that local communities should decide local housing needs, and not have housing targets imposed on them by central govt.
The whole ethos of devolving more power to the counties and limiting the power of central govt to interfere. Local people could have local, county-level referendums on pressing local issues.
UKIP are also against the cabinet system of local govt, introduced by Labour. Not the most democratic form of local governance devised as far as I can tell.
Oh, and the principle that Council Tax should be a slow as possible.
There's a few to go on.

Thanks Bismark.

I googled for the UKIP local government manifesto 2014 and found what I found.

Interestingly some of the policies I agree with, but its the darker side that's less seductive and as evidenced from recent experience with local candidates and those who did get elected and recent comments from UKIPers that have posted on WN.

What you fail to point out is that the candidate that has been suspended is actually one of the few people featured in the UKIP election video.

UKIP alos isn't new. It was founded over 20 years ago in 1993.

The point I think Matthew Jenkins is making is that despite the many previous racists, sexist and homophobic comments and public pronouncements that the party will 'clean up' its act it hasn't.

A recent post from a local party member excused comments made by 'UKIPPERS' as harmless jokes made in private. I'm sorry, but I fail to see why a party full of members who think racists, sexist, anti-islamic and homophobic jokes are acceptable doesn't deserve my vote or that of anyone who has decent and moral principles.

Its even more concerning when a disproportionately large percentage of what should be carefully selected candidates have had to be suspended or expelled.

I do hope the local electorate will take a much closer look at who and what they are voting for on 22nd May.

The Tories and Labour, ably assisted by the "joke" that are the Lib Dems have been trolling through the rubbish bins in order to dig up the dirt on UKIP - how pathetic, it brings to mind the saying "people in glass houses etc" little do they realise that the more they dig, the deeper they get themselves into the mire and what it does of course, is remind us of the corruption and criminality of the three main parties over the expenses scandal which is still continuing to this day. UKIP have never been in Parliament so in the corruption stakes, they are as clean as driven snow, Now who was the last politician to hog the newspapers for a few weeks because of her fiddling, oh, yes, was it that Minister for Culture Media and Sport in the Tory party who Cameron was determined not to sack. We need to root out every last politician in Westminster in the Tory/Lib/Lab mafia and let UKIP give it all a clean sweep - and that also applies to the local elections to.

UKIP have never been in Parliament so in the corruption stakes, they are as clean as driven snow, Now who was the last politician to hog the newspapers for a few weeks because of her fiddling, oh, yes, was it that Minister for Culture Media and Sport in the Tory party who Cameron was determined not to sack. We need to root out every last politician in Westminster in the Tory/Lib/Lab mafia and let UKIP give it all a clean sweep - and that also applies to the local elections to. Shropshirelad

Would you join a club with a £55M/day subscription and they can't produce audited accounts for the last 18 years?

Of course not, and UKIP want to get us out of this corrupt monster called the EU, while the Lib/Lab/Dem party want us to stay in and let the unelected EU dictatorship continue to pillage this country.

A vote for UKIP is a vote to restore democracy to this country, and a council vote will bring democracy to the closed shop that is Worcester politics.

There is no reason at all you cannot vote for different parties at every election.
