For UKIP to survive and become a dominant influence in British politics it must undertake the following:
As leader I will drive all of these internal agendas and deliver meaningful internal change.
As Leader, I will also initiate and drive meaningful and substantial change in four principle areas:
Since the party's inception, the desire to leave the EU, to regain our sovereignty, to manage our own borders, and to control immigration were the aims that united all the party’s members, no matter what other opinions they held. Many people ask what the party will do when BREXIT is concluded and we are already seeing extremes of opinion being expressed within the party.
We must carve out a clear place for ourselves in British politics, a place that endures long after we have left the European Union and a rôle which unites UKIP, and which British voters widely support.
The Conservative Government is entirely distracted by its problems and is neglecting our public services and security whilst failing catastrophically to address the welfare and wellbeing of ordinary people. The Labour opposition is confused and continues to rip itself apart. Its policies are incoherent even if some are superficially attractive. If ever Labour came to power our country would be plunged into debt and chaos. The Grenfell Tower tragedy has revealed systemic failings that have resulted from decades of neglect by successive national and local governments. The atrocious follow-up demonstrated a worrying lack of crisis preparation.
Our communities have been undermined by long term neglect and badly managed immigration and integration have polarised our society and have created mistrust, tension and insecurity.
The institutions of our great nation have been neglected and poorly managed by a succession of Tory, Labour and coalition governments for decades. As a result they all now suffer from systemic failures: healthcare; social care and welfare; education; defence; policing; prisons and probation services; local government are now sometimes not even fit for purpose. We all know it.
The country needs effective leadership and it needs it fast.
These UKIP traits are what the nation needs. This is UKIP's opportunity. 'Deliver for Britain'.
