UKIP – Beyond Brexit
For a free and prosperous nation
As the leader of a truly democratic
UK Independence Party, Helena pledges to be:
FIRST AMONG EQUALS
Inspire the nation with a vision of our place
in the world beyond BREXIT
Hello, I am Helena Windsor,
My husband and I joined UKIP in 1999, after campaigning for The Referendum Party in 1997. I have served as a UKIP County Councillor (2013-
I have been branch chairman for East Surrey since 2011 and Surrey chairman since July 2017 so I am part of and understand the grassroots of our party. As county chairman I know that we have been painstakingly rebuilding since Gerard Batten took over from Henry Bolton, only to have Nigel pulling that essential scaffolding apart by encouraging senior UKIP members to join him in the Brexit Party.
I believe we need to rebuild and support our branches, training our members and inspiring them to stand to serve their communities on local town, parish, district, borough and county councils, carrying on UKIP’s tradition of putting residents first, not toeing a party line. This way our communities will come to trust us to deliver, know we are not ‘extremists’ and consider voting for us at national level.
We cannot just turn inward -
Constitutionally UKIP is a democratic, libertarian Party
which seeks to:
• promote and encourage those who aspire to improve their personal situation and those who seek to be self-
• favour the ability of individuals to make decisions in respect of themselves;
• to diminish the role of the State;
• lower the burden of taxation on individuals and businesses;
• ensure proper control over the United Kingdom’s borders;
• strengthen and guarantee the essential, traditional freedoms and liberties of all people in the United Kingdom
Helena’s vision for a free and prosperous UK
A FREE NATION
A PATRIOTIC NATION
All British people should feel free to celebrate their culture and proudly display our Union Flag and the flags of the UNITED KINGDOM’s four constituent Nations without insult
Helena welcomes the work our former MEPs have done in promoting the causes of our brave veterans and promises to continue that work. We believe no veteran should be forced to sleep on the street and that 1970s Northern Ireland veterans should not be facing prosecution.
The lights are going out -
Slowly but surely, across the globe we are being told what we can think, write, say and learn. Healthy debate is being closed down whenever it challenges Establishment ‘right think’
Academic speakers are non-
Bloggers are demonetised
Social media accounts are closed
‘Non conforming’ researchers cannot get funding
UKIP promotes patriotism
Helena believes that defending free speech needs to be a key player in UKIP’s policy platform
The mainstream media cannot prevent people learning,via social media platforms, the inconvenient truths it chooses to cover up; the solution -
If we succeed in shaking off the shackles of the EU without rolling back the erosion of such a basic freedom we will never be a truly free nation.
If we fight back the UK can be a beacon of light shining on the path back to common sense for the rest of the world.
A SAFE NATION
A DEMOCRATIC NATION
Policing isn’t working…
Knife crime out of control
Grooming gangs and people trafficking unchecked
Poor responses to property theft
Nor is our prison service…
How are prisoners able to receive and use drugs?
How are prisoners able to be radicalised or intimidated into converting to Islam?
UKIP must insist that our hard won equality for women and LGBT citizens under British law is maintained;
UKIP must insist that the law is applied fairly and equally to all citizens regardless of rank and ethnicity
UKIP will strengthen and support our armed forces and border control.
UKIP will not allow our armed forces to be part of the EU combined forces
UKIP needs to appreciate its members and activists and establish a transparent, more democratic bottom up structure
WE SHOULD SET AN EXAMPLE FOR NATIONAL CHANGE
First Past the Post isn’t working -
we need electoral reform to
Make every vote count
It’s time to bring more democratic decision making to the people: Introduce binding local referenda for major developments,
Consider a more Swiss style system of government with referenda on major decisions.
A PROSPEROUS NATION
Free of EU rule we can:
Reform tax to incentivise business development
SCRAP VAT -
Reform or replace unfair taxes
Ensure large multinationals pay a fair tax share
Agree trade deals which also benefit developing nations
Whatever challenges leaving the EU brings there is an opportunity for the UK to become a prosperous, innovative, enterprising nation.
UKIP must promote the economic benefits -
Helena believes that in the three years since we voted to leave the EU our Party has failed to make the case for the economic benefits of being free to make our own trade deals and not being tied to EU tax rules
It goes without saying that UKIP will continue to ensure that we truly leave the EU, not become a vassal state
