MARCH 29 is next OPPORTUNITY for the UNITED KINGDOM to GET IT RIGHT – VOTE UKIP in WEST BRADFORD!

West Bradford riding is the site of the next MP by-election and the next opportunity for the UK to get it right:  Vote UKIP.  The election is Thursday March 29. You can bet your bippy we’re covering it here at VR.

The UKIP candidate is quite interesting.  Sonja McNally was a former Green Party member and ran for parliament before in 2009 and 2010  She also is an awesome community activist and volunteer worker:

She is chairperson of community group Upper Heaton Working Together and is membership secretary of the Heaton Township Association.

The UKIP candidate was also a volunteer with Bradford Nightstop – an organisation that provides assistance and accommodation for 16 to 25 year olds who find themselves homeless.

Sonja has also been a Bradford Street Angel which saw her walking the streets of the city on a Friday and Saturday night providing assistance where needed.

She is a governor of Frizinghall Primary School and also of Feversham College – a voluntary aided specialist science school for Muslim girls aged 11 to 18 years.

Sonja is also on a Hate Panel – an initiative that sees local residents meeting up regularly to discuss how police deal with reported cases of a hate crime

I am impressed with that level of local volunteer work.  She would be a ideal local candidate in the USA.  I would be thrilled to interview Sonja to see why she defected from the Greens to the UKIP.  The Green party is a European and statist party.  But is this a start of UKIP in reaching out to Greens who may be more liberal than some of UKIP’s social issue positions, that may be a breakthrough.  Sonja has also pushed her local ties and volunteer work.  I will send a request for an interview to UKIP or on the local UKIP blog.

Here are the election results in the last General Election:

    Social issues these days are mostly related to poverty and health insurance. We would really love all social issues to be solved by the government. ,…’

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
