The Blair Brown Regime refused the right to an inquest and have kept secret evidence following the Hutton Whitewash.

The doctors have instructed lawyers to begin the process of forcing disclosure of evidence and obtaining a full and open public inquest.

Impeach Brown Now

BrownCartoon6

With the death toll rising in Afghanistan, now is the time to impeach “Bottler” Brown and start supporting British troops with the resources to fight a war.

The immediacy of modern news media makes the war in Afghanistan look unwinnable and encourages those who would like to bring home British troops whatever the the situation. The reality is that any war that has to be fought largely on a face-to-face basis will result in deaths. In terms of close quarters fighting, the British death toll is tragic for the families of those killed and wounded and for those comrades who fight on, but the casualty figures are still relatively low.

We now know that “Bottler” Brown has played a key role in making sure that British troops go to war under-equipped and where equipment has been supplied it is of a very low quality in many cases. The belated attempts to equip British soldiers with mine-resistant vehicles is not only too little too late, but has also resulted in the eventual purchase of a vehicle that was rejected by the US Department of Defense because it failed during testing.

As “Bottler” Brown is determined to cling on to his pay, expenses and growing gold plated pension fund for as long as possible, now is the time for Members of Parliament to demonstrate that they are not all self-serving sleazy crooks by voting to impeach “Bottler” for his many high crimes.

UKIP’S TINGLE TO SIGN CLEAN CAMPAIGN PLEDGE AS TORIES DECLINE FORMAL SIGNING

Tinglebanner

Glenn Tingle, the UK Independence Party’s candidate for Norwich North has committed himself to signing the clean campaign pledge promoted by the Green Party and was due to take part in a formal signing ceremony with Rupert Read and Chloe Smith (Cons), until the Tory candidate declined to attend.

 

Mr Tingle said: “It is a great shame that the Tories have refused to take part, despite considerable efforts to persuade them. As candidates, we could all have shown a united front against negative political campaigning. It suggests that the Tory commitment is rather skin deep.HowHHhh

“A clean campaign is something that I am personally very committed to, regardless of any written pledge but I am perfectly happy to formalise it by signing the same document as the other parties. I see no benefit to the public in hearing political parties smearing each other. In my view, it is far better to stick to the issues that really concern the voters.

 

“I am taking the clean campaign a stage further by committing myself to donating 10% of my Westminster salary to a local charity. I invite my opponents to do the same. In this way, we can all provide a cast iron guarantee that part of the future benefits package of the next Norwich North MP will definitely go to a good local cause.

 

“My only caveat in signing the pledge, is that all the signatories behave accordingly. I do not want to see any more of my posters defaced or torn down, which has been an increasing problem for my campaign.”

UKIP LEADER AND BY-ELECTION CANDIDATE BACK BRITISH PUBS AT SPECIAL MEETING

Nigel Farage, MEP, Leader UK Independence Party, supporting Glen Tingle in a Clean Start for Norwich North

Publicans in Norwich were invited by the UK Independence Party Leader, Nigel Farage MEP and the Norwich North candidate, Glenn Tingle, to a special meeting last night (6th July) at the Cottage Public House, to discuss the parlous state of their industry and to be briefed on UKIP’s ‘Save the British Pub’ Campaign.

Mr Farage said: “UKIP wants to save British pubs because they are a fundamental part of so many communities. They are a place for local people to meet and have a chat about the important issues of the day. In fact, they are a sort of unofficial parliament where everyone can have a say. Pubs have been hammered by a combination of greedy breweries and over zealous legislators. The smoking ban has been a disaster for British pubs and UKIP is totally opposed to the EU’s latest iniquitous plan to ban smoking in all public places, including beer gardens and parks, which would mean you wouldn’t even be allowed to nip outside for a smoke, while you were having a pint.”

Glenn Tingle UKIP’s Parliamentary Candidate introduced himself as a local man looking to bring Norwich North a clean start. “The Constituency needs a fresh start after getting dragged into the MP expenses scandal and if I were to be elected, publicans in Norwich would certainly have a strong voice speaking up for their interests at Westminster.

Also speaking at the meeting, was Nick Hogan, UKIP’s national spokesman on licensing and the night time economy. He was the first publican to be prosecuted for allowing smoking on his premises, when he chose not to ask a party of Second World War veterans to stand outside to smoke on a cold winter’s night. Topics under discussion at the meeting included the 2003 Licensing Act, the 2006 Health Act, the beer escalator and the EU’s latest proposals anti-smoking proposals.

‘Give Norwich North a Fresh Tingle’

Vote Glenn Tingle, UK Independence Party

 

Glenn Tingle, the UK Independence Party’s Parliamentary Candidate for Norwich North has committed himself full time to his ‘Clean Start for Norwich North’ by-election campaign by giving up his job as a contracts manager for a local engineering company. Mr Tingle formally submitted his nomination papers on Monday (6th July).

 

He said: “I did not feel that I could fully commit myself as a candidate, while trying to hold down a job. For me, the ‘Clean Start for Norwich North’ campaign is far too important to be going at it with anything less than 100% concentration. It was also unfair to my employer. The voters are crying out for a fresh start and they won’t get that from any of the other parties.

 

“The Tories have chosen a youngster, who works in London and who has very limited knowledge of local issues and the Lib Dems have brought in a failed candidate from another local constituency. The Labour Party is in meltdown and the Green Party has chosen Rupert Read, who has already conceded defeat in the by-election, in comments he made to the Times last Friday. Not the most inspiring field to choose from unless you vote for Glenn Tingle and a ‘Clean Start for Norwich North’.”

EASTERN COUNTIES MEP JOINS UKIP’S NORWICH NORTH CAMPAIGN

David Campbell Bannerman supporting Norwich North by-election candidate Glenn Tingle

The newly elected UKIP MEP for the Eastern Counties, David Campbell Bannerman, has joined the Glenn Tingle, ‘Clean Start for Norwich North’ campaign. David, who is also the Party’s Deputy Leader and Head of Policy, will be bringing new expertise to the campaign and will focus on highlighting the increasing range of key domestic policies UKIP has to offer.

Mr Campbell Bannerman said: “We are ahead of the policy game in many ways. For instance, UKIP was calling for an independent panel to monitor MPs’ expenses, more than a year ago. This is now Government policy and it is particularly relevant here in Norwich North, where the expenses issue has generated this by-election. I will also be tackling the subject of immigration, we are a non-racist, non-sectarian party but we are not afraid to talk in practical terms about this vitally important issue. It is about managing numbers – about space, not race.”

Parliamentary Candidate, Glenn Tingle, whose ‘Clean Start for Norwich North’ billboards and kiosk posters are now visible all around the Constituency said: “David’s policy expertise is greatly appreciated, as I am keen to show the voters that we are a Party with fresh ideas and common sense policies. UKIP are not afraid to tackle the difficult issues, which are invariably the issues which most affect ordinary people.”

UKIP had two MEPs elected this June, and has been steadily improving its vote in county and local elections. It achieved its first County Councillor in Great Yarmouth, a second in Lowestoft and 28 second places in the County Council ballots on 4th June.
