Hundreds turn out in Hove to hear UKIP leader

The audience was estimated to be about 500 in the beach town of Brighton and Hove to hear UKIP Leader (and European Parliament member) Nigel Farage give a rousing speech:

He told the meeting this evening (Monday 3 June): “We are unashamedly a patriotic party and we believe in standing up for the rights and freedoms of everybody wherever they come from and whatever their race or colour but we oppose the policy of open-door immigration.”


One questioner challenged Mr Farage about race, immigration, the British National Party (BNP) and the English Defence League (EDL).

He said: “The BNP are anti-European. In UKIP we want Britain to divorce the EU but be good neighbours with good trade relations.

“The BNP are protectionist. We want to open up trade not just with the EU but also our friends in  the 54 countries of the Commonwealth.”

He said that the BNP was authoritarian while UKIP was libertarian and wanted smaller government.

He said that the BNP limited its membership to people of Anglo-Saxon or Caucasian origin.

Mr Farage said: “We welcome all people from all races and all faiths.”

He said that his party constitution barred people from joining if they had previously belonged to an extremist racist party.

There were also some good remarks from Nigel Carter, the local leader of UKIP.  He told how about they did not leaflet every house in the district.  And they didn’t win!  But they hope for and need more volunteers.

In other UKIP news:

A CEO of a leading UK company gave a large (described as a five-digit) donation to UKIP in London!

But The Sunday Telegraph can reveal that later the same evening Mr Farage was the guest of honour at a private dinner at the London flat of spread-betting tycoon Stuart Wheeler, the party’s treasurer.

The 14 guests at the dinner included Lord Willoughby de Broke, one of three Ukip peers in the House of Lords.

Mr Wheeler told this newspaper that Ukip has received several donations as a result of the fundraising events, including two above the threshold of £7,500 that must be declared to the Electoral Commission.

The former chief executive and chairman of a well-known FTSE 100 company, who asked not to be named, said he gave a five-figure sum as an “avid eurosceptic” who believes that “people are now swinging [the party’s] way”.

Another entrepreneur named Adrian Buckley donated 20,000 pounds a few days ago (We’ll have to find a way to get the pound symbol on this keyboard!) to UKIP.  If the business community gets solidly behind UKIP then it will be harder for the EU elites to assemble an united front against leaving the EU as they try to do.  UKIP is on the march and so is liberty!
