Politics in this country will never quite be the same again. Indeed, the triumph of UKIP in the recent local and European elections has shaken the political establishment to the core; and has the ability, so the commentators would have us believe, to break the leadership of the Europhile Liberal Democrats. Within the last 100 years, no other party except UKIP have won a national election over the Conservative Party or the Labour Party. A truly remarkable achievement.
Looking to Bromsgrove, UKIP won the area with the highest share of the vote. Albeit, it was a close run against the Conservative Party, please take a look at the top 4 voting scores:
1st place: UK Independence Party with 9,264
2nd place: Conservative Party with 8,629
3rd place: Labour Party with 4,150
4th place: Green Party with 1,340
These results demonstrate that Bromsgrove will now be a battleground between UKIP and the Tories in the 2015 general and district elections.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting the party. Every bit of support makes a huge difference; whether it be simply voting UKIP, encouraging family and friends to support us, displaying posters and correx boards or risking one’s fingers leafleting. Allow me to poach a little known slogan: ‘Every little helps.’
Furthermore, I would like to invite you to attend our branch meeting. Please help shape the direction of your local branch and join us in celebrating our success in 2014.
Time & Date: 7pm on Tuesday 10th June 2014
Venue: The Ladybird Inn (upstairs function room), Aston Fields, Bromsgrove, B60 2DZ
If you have any issues you would like discussed at the branch meeting then please write to me or email me on email@example.com I look forward to seeing you then.
Mr. Owen Davies
UKIP Bromsgrove Chairman
