  1. Sounded like the whole thing was a bit of a shambles, apparently there was a fair bit of abuse coming from passing cars.
    I cannot imagine what this lot will be like if they ever get elected. Their mandate is based on immigration, is immigration really a problem in Holderness or even Hull?

    • The East Riding is 97% British white according to the last census… There is no “immigrant problem” here. And where was UKIP’s worst result in the European elections ? London ! where there is a multicultural community which embraces the benefit immigration brings.
      Funny how UKIP performs best in places like Clacton where people are poorer than the national average and are encouraged to believe immigrants are stealing their jobs, schoolplaces and houses. Its the politics of fear and simply not true. Lets face it, its closet racism.

      • Patronising, I think. Perhaps the people of Clacton who “are poorer than the national average” know their own minds (however unpalatable) rather than being encouraged to hold a particular viewpoint.

  2. Every notice stated that the UKIP MEP representative was to hold a surgery between 10 to 11 am, so why not turn up at the time stated ??

    • There is no denying British coastal towns are deprived areas and there is no denying that parties like UKIP target deprived areas spreading fear of immigration and blaming all this countries woes on immigration.
      You’d think places like Holderness thrive on the overseas workers that work in farming, up the road Goole is currently booming thanks to Eastern Europeans.

      I’ve lived in many multi cultural areas like Leeds and London, they are fantastic vibrant places, I never felt unsafe or felt like I couldn’t find work.

  3. I turned up at 2.00 pm – the MEP had been and gone and they were packing up, despite it being advertised as “meet your MEP day” 10.00 till 4.00pm. Not good enough UKIP!!!

  4. They must have left early. I couldn’t get to the meeting until around 2.30 and when I arrived the place was in darkness.

    • Sarah, I interviewed Gary Shores UKIP’s PPC for Beverley & Holderness, and he covered the NHS issue you raised, I’ll report back on his comments on the Blog on Monday.
