Commented General Election 2015 Parliamentary Candidate for Gloucester
Richard Ford, who is also Chairman of UKIP Gloucester :- ” When Leave won the EU Referendum I don’t think that anyone would have believed it remotely possible that almost two years later we would still have made such little progress towards delivering the clear verdict of the people of Gloucester, Gloucestershire and of the UK as a whole – all of which voted for Leave.
Now as a result of Theresa May’s dithering and lack of control over her own party in the Commons, the Lords and even in the Cabinet it seems quite possible that Brexit might not happen at the end of March next year after all, since May has not got a majority in either the Commons or the Lords with which to deliver it.
We are staging this Rally to remind prominent City and County Remainers and Theresa May supporters such as Richard Graham, the MP for Gloucester how the people of Gloucester and Gloucestershire voted – and that the electorate still expect their mandate and decision from the Referendum to be carried out, and in full.
To do anything else will be a clear undermining of the democratic will of the people as expressed at the ballot box for which Remain MPs and unelected Peers from the Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat Establishment will be held to account at the first available opportunity, both at the next General Election and by means of long overdue reform or, preferably, complete abolition of the House of Lords and its replacement by a smaller, patronage free and properly accountable revising chamber.”
