Although Bath is a world heritage city with global significance, UKIP believes that the people who live and work within the Bath constituency matter most.

UKIP Bath & North East Somerset covers the parliamentary constituency of Bath, which is a highly distinctive constituency, that includes the historic Roman and Georgian UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Bath constituency is in a magnificent rural position between the Cotswolds and the Mendip Hills. The River Avon passes through the City Centre.

At a local level, UKIP is committed to the over 70,000 people who live in the Bath constituency and the wards contained within it. If you live in Abbey, Bathwick, Combe Down, Kingsmead, Lambridge, Lansdown, Lyncombe, Newbridge, Odd Down, Oldfield, Southdown, Twerton, Walcot, Westmoreland, Weston or Widcombe, then you are in the Bath constituency.
UKIP Bath and North East Somerset Branch campaigns hard to increase UKIP’s representation on Bath & North East Somerset Council and to give local residents what they lack, such as control over decision making and more say in what happens in our communities and streets. People are justly worried about local issues such as crime, hospitals, schools, transport, devolution, and the local environment which could be spoiled by unwanted development projects. By voting UKIP in Bath you will get a councillor who is free from party whips and who will act on behalf of their constituents, and not the party.
Bath UKIP was the only political party in Bath to have actively campaigned to leave the EU. Bath’s Tory MP; the LibDems and Labour all supported “remain”. Bath UKIP supported the Vote Leave, Leave.EU and Grassroots Out campaigns in Bath. Our members ran the “leave” campaigns on the ground, while the Tory MP and all the other establishment figures in Bath actively campaigned for ever closer union with the EU, continued freedom of movement and continued financial contributions to the EU budget. If you live in Bath and want an independent Britain, UKIP is on your side. Bath UKIP’s vision of Britain’s future is as a self-governing, independent nation outside the EU, free to trade with the world.
Meanwhile, Bath’s Lib Dem MP has been making herself look slightly foolish continually whingeing about giving EU federalists a chance to overturn the peoples’ vote. Why does she so dislike the idea of an independent Britain? What if, Bath Lib Dems still fail to get the result they want, would they want a third referendum, or even another? This pointless game could go on forever with no end in sight. Bath Lib Dems need to learn to respect democracy, even if they do not like the result. A true democratic and patriotic party like UKIP unconditionally respects what the people voted for in one of the biggest exercises of democracy in modern times.
If you live in Bath constituency and want to live in an independent Britain, why not email your MP or write c/o House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA to remind her of her duty to honour the wishes of the majority who voted to leave the EU when voting in the House of Commons.
