UKIP opens office in Christchurch

Bournemouth Echo: UKIP opens office in Christchurch UKIP opens office in Christchurch

UKIP has opened an office in Christchurch.

The party says it is targeting Dorset, where it expects to win vulnerable seats from the Conservatives and Lib Dems. The office in Bargates, opposite the British Legion, went fully operational this week.

The Prospective Parliamentary candidate Robin Grey is supported by volunteers who man the office daily from 10am to 4pm.

Robin said: “Our headquarters is a huge asset and we have made an impact on local affairs, by getting behind the campaign to save the trees and hall in Druitt’s Gardens and causing the county council to think again about cutting bus services serving pensioners.”

Whether or not one is for UKIP , I feel this will give Christchurch a kick up the rear, which is what it needs at this time. So all you Councillors beware, your about to have a run for your money, maybe now you will consider what the folk of Christchurch want and NOT what you want .

I was cautiously optimistic about UKIP's ability to challenge the established political parties, but then Godfrey Bloom and David Silvester opened their mouths and ruined it.

Indeed they did and these two (ex-Tory) old twits were both decisively (and refreshingly) slung out of this still very young political Party over their conduct. All the existing old political 'establishment' Parties and some of their media friends are running very frightened of UKIP, there will be a lot more over-egged smearing in the coming weeks, rest assured.

This Office opening news is good for local democracy, like them or detest them UKIP will have the old local Council dinosaurs quaking, very few of us should have a problem with that.

Yes - perhaps we would be better off with UKIP in power as opposed to the Labour Party.

There is one gentleman that I perhaps would like to see in power as opposed to the Labour Party, but unfortunately he passed away some years ago.

He is Mr Gengis Khan.

I think that UKIP will do VERY well in Christchurch

I am all in favour of their policy re Europe but I would feel a whole lot happier if they were to publish any other policy of whatever nature eg tax

It closes early in the afternoon so that it's members can get home in time for Countdown. Tins of Fray Bentos Steak and Kidney pies and Camp coffee will be available on the National Health - with regimental ties and blazers to be compulsory wear for males over 25.

Do you not think it strange that David Silvester said exactly the same things when he was a Tory and the press took no notice?

I can think of no town in the UK more in tune with UKIP than Christchurch.

Whether that is praise, or condemnation, I will leave to the reader to determine!

Indeed I do. Credit to UKIP for taking action.

The UKIP logo resembles a logo designed for a pound store by the lowest bidder. Even Lidls does better.

It is almost a sign about the validity of this party as a national force.
