23 June 17 – UKIP leadership contest statement

I will not be standing as a candidate in the UKIP leadership contest. Following the general election, I am taking a break from politics to consider my future.

When I stood in last year’s leadership contest I said that the party must broaden the message by talking about more than just Europe and immigration and we must change our tone. I warned if the party didn’t do these things it risked becoming irrelevant, following the disastrous results for UKIP in the general election two weeks ago my arguments have been proved right.

Instead of banging on about banning Burkas we need to bang on about the NHS, schools, law and order and the economy.

The party now faces a choice that it can no longer ignore change or die.

8 Jun 17 – My comments on the election campaign

Now that the polls have closed I just wanted to say a big thank you to the small number of people who have helped with the campaign. We have had very few resources and little man power. It’s been a long month of 10 hour days every day. We have managed to get 93% of seat canvassed in 4 weeks which I think is an amazing achievement. Myself and the small team have given it our all. Also I want to say thank you to all my friends, family and supporters for all the messages of support too.
