Newport West by-election
March 23 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 pm
The Newport West by-election campaign is now in full swing. We have a golden opportunity to achieve a very respectable result and, by doing so, put UKIP back on the map. We have organised two national action days on Saturday 23 March and Saturday 30 March. We will be sending out a call to action to all members, but could you also encourage your members to come down to Newport and aissit with the campaign please?
Members as far as London and the North of England have already pledged to help with campaign on the ground. Newport is extremely close to the English/Welsh border and is easily accessed by road or rail – please also note there are no longer any tolls on the Severn Bridge. I appreciate that many of you are in the middle of local election campaigns, but this by-election will be in the “national eye” and a strong result will show we are far from a defeated party electorally.
UKIP members and supporters are also out campaigning throughout the week. If any of your members can’t make the weekend action days they are more than welcome to campaign on any week day – with the exception of Friday 22 March (Paul Flynn’s funeral).
