Welcome to UKIP Havant
EU Referendum - 23 June 2016
For the EU Referendum this year, UKIP in Havant joined with the official Leave campaign group VOTELEAVE and we distributed leaflets, set up table stalls, and attended public meetings to publicise the benefits to all of the UK leaving the EU. This campaigning was performed on a non-party political basis.
At the count, we were delighted to find that Havant voters overwhelmingly voted in favour of LEAVING the EU with a 62.4% share of the vote, and by 7am in the morning we found that the UK had voted in favour of BREXIT.
We must remember that if it had not been for UKIP and Nigel Farage, we in the UK would never have had an EU referendum and we in UKIP Havant wish Nigel the very best having achieved and contributed so much to winning the EU Referendum vote.
We in UKIP Havant see fabulous opportunities for the UK with:
- The UK being able to write its own laws and with UK MPs being accountable for them.
- A fair immigration policy that will consider all non-UK citizens equally in their desire to live and work in the UK.
- Great trading opportunities with the UK being able to strike trade deals with any country to the benefit of UK exporters.
- The UK no longer under the control of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and the significant opportunities and help this will give our farmers and fishermen.
- The opportunity for reduced energy prices as the EU lose control over our energy generation.
- Greater opportunities and rising wages for those on the minimum wage as cut-price labour from eastern Europe is reduced and stopped.
- Reduced pressure on the NHS and infrastructure with a lower requirement for mass homebuilding on green fields.
- A saving of our EU membership fee of over £350 million per week that we can spend as we deem fit.
However, UKIP's work is not done; we need to keep the pressure up on the Conservatives and in particular "Remainer May" and the Conservative "Remain" MPs, and in particular our Havant MP Alan Mak who is a staunch supporter of remaining and not leaving the EU to ensure that Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty is actually invoked.
Finally, a big thank you for everyone who supported the VoteLeave campaign in Havant from the street stall organisers, those attending the street stalls, those who delivered leaflets to target roads and everyone who attended the polling stations greeting the electorate. The hard work paid off.
Local Elections - 5 May 2016
UKIP in Havant congratulate: John Davis for being elected a councillor for Warren Park and also to Malc Carpenter for being elected a councillor for Battins. Both of our new councillors are excited about serving their residents.
General Election - 7 May 2016
In the 2015 General election our candidate John Perry polled 9,239 votes (20.6%) up 14.7% from 2010; UKIP in Havant received the 2nd largest percentage vote on Hampshire. Nationally, UKIP polled 3,881,099 (12.6%) up 9.5% from 2010.
Reflecting on the General Election result, there have been some interesting revelations about Alan Mak's claims on his CV which make interesting reading here and is reported by the Political Scrapbook here.
About the Havant Constituency
Havant is a town in south east Hampshire situated on the South coast of England, between the cities of Portsmouth and Chichester. It gives its name to the borough comprising the town and the surrounding area. Havant is in the county of Hampshire and the constituency has an electorate of circa 70,000.
The Havant constituency consists of the 11 wards: Barncroft, Battins, Bedhampton, Bondfields, Emsworth, Hayling East, Hayling West, Purbrook, St Faiths, Stakes, and Warren Park. These 11 wards come under Havant Borough Council, who in addition administer the Cowplain, Harts Plain and Waterloo wards that lie in the Meon Valley Constituency.
The current member of parliament for Havant is Alan Mak who was elected at the 2015 General Election amid much controversy. UKIP Havant are proud to have conduced their 2015 election campaign with honesty and integrity while exposing lies.
In the 2014 Euro Elections, UKIP received the most votes in both Havant and the South East and the four UKIP MEPs Nigel Farage, Janice Atkinson, Diane James and Ray Finch were elected.
In the 2014 local election, UKIP gained two seats from the Conservative party electing Gary Kerrin in the Stakes ward and John Perry in the Hayling East ward.
The UKIP Havant Branch believe in selecting local candidates for both local council, county council and general elections, since local candidates who have lived, worked and learned in the local area are better placed to serve residents.
