A. Great Britain is increasingly feeling the effects of the EU. A most prominent example is Britain’s inability to control our own borders from EU immigration. If you are not content with this situation then you can voice your concern through the EU elections.
Q. How many West Midlands MEPs did UKIP gain in the 2010 EU election?
A. Last time the top 2 in UKIP’s list were elected as we got over 20% of the vote. Thank you!
Q. What are UKIPs hopes in the West Midlands for the 2014 EU elections?
A. This time we’re hoping to do even better and top the poll, with 3 or even 4 MEPs elected in this region alone.
Q. Can my vote make a difference in the EU election?
A. Remember: EVERY vote counts in a EURO Election because a type of Proportional Representation operates.
Q. UKIP doesn’t like the EU, so why does it bother get elected to the EU Parliament?
A. UKIP is the dominant voice of Opposition in the European Parliament and co-operates with like minded partners from other countries. The main task of UKIP within the Parliament is to be a critical “thorn in the side” of the EU Government which is an un-elected body distinct from the Parliament itself.
A well attended and convivial meeting held in Alvechurch village hall last Friday (04/04/2014), heard UKIP veteran and MEP candidate Jim Carver, outline the party’s continuing determination to win the forthcoming European Union elections this May.
Jim Carver highlighted the cost of EU membership, the sovereignty lost in 1973, and discussed his impressions on the Farage verse Clegg television debate – noting that the British public backed Farage over Clegg.
The branch committee were much encouraged by the attendance of a number of younger people; indicating that the party is increasingly drawing support from all age groups, and from right across the social spectrum.
Owen Davies, Chairman.

The study by MigrationWatch UK challenges findings of earlier academic report which said immigration made positive contribution to public coffersin-3000-a-day-each-says-report.
In 2011 alone the cost was £23 billion, or £3,000 each for the eight million foreign-born population, the group concluded. The sum was equal to the amount spent by the NHS on GPs and dentists in a year.
Sir Andrew Green, chairman of Migration Watch UK, said: “Our report finally disposes of the immigration lobby’s oft repeated claims that immigration reduces our tax burden.
“The total cost is high and increased dramatically between 1995 and 2011, providing no compensation for the overcrowding of this island which we are experiencing, largely as a result of immigration”
