New lists for 2009

Hello all,

Well its been an interesting week! I have been sorting out arrangements to go to Brussels and no sooner than that, I find out that I am now the third Candidate for next years' European Elections. Stephen Allison decided after all to contest the East Midlands list so everyone moves one place up the list!
I am having a mini party of UKIP members at my place before I go to Brussels to take up my new job as a Trainee/Stagiare in the Agriculture and Fisheries Committees. Its been a hectic week, but exciting nonetheless.
Please get in touch with me if you have any questions you wish to ask me.

Till next time,

Party Conference

Hello All,

Well, what a Conference it was!! Certainly one to remember.

Nigel gave a speech on day one that outlined a change of tack and strategy for UKIP, a strategy I fully support and believe will turn UKIP around and prepare us well for next years elections. Bob Spink gave a speech that was memorable and heartfelt - he is a rare politician, one that puts his country before his career. I met all of the UKIP MEP's, Peers and our MP. All of whom were warm and very welcoming.

I made a speech with Young Independence, and I felt pleased with my performance. Many people spoke to me afterwards extending their congratulations. I had just announced I was accepting a job in Brussels for the Independence and Democracy grouping in the European Parliament.

So plans are underway for my six month internship at Brussels. Very much looking foward to it!!

Till next time,
