Some people in Bath and North East Somerset don’t know what UKIP really stands for.
There are a lot of misconceptions and, indeed, misrepresentations around our current aims and policies. So, now that UKIP has achieved its twin objectives of securing a referendum on EU membership, and then winning it, this is a good time to explain exactly what our party now stands for.
The UK Independence Party formed relatively recently, in 1993, with values based primarily on the concept of individual liberty. We are a patriotic party and we champion common-sense solutions to many of the problems that hold people back in their lives.
In recent years, we have attracted a growing number of voters who have broken their bonds with the old parties. UKIP now has members and supporters from all political persuasions from conservative, to socialist, to liberal and to radical. We offer a different choice, and something substantially unlike the traditional parties.
