UKIP Communities Spokesman Condemns ISIS

September 15, 2014
By

UKIP Communities spokesman Amjad Bashir today urged all Muslims to repudiate the unspeakable actions of Isis. “The terrible slaughter of British aid worker David Haines is unforgivable and is a further demonstration of why Isis must be swiftly wiped out. “As a fellow Yorkshire man I found the news of his death particularly hard to bear, though the murder of any innocent is deplorable. My heart goes out to his grieving family and those of the two American hostages who recently suffered the same awful fate. “Islam is a religion of peace and as a Muslim I urge all Muslims to shout from the rooftops that this so-called Islamic State is nothing to do with Islam. “David Cameron is quite right to describe the killings as “pure evil” and we should all pray that the authorities are able to bring the British terrorist “Jihadi John” to justice and also end this warfare,” said Mr Bashir, MEP for Yorkshire & North Lincolnshire.

MEP Calls For Support For British Business

June 24, 2014
By

British businessmen are being badly let down by the government at a time when they should be supported to the hilt, said UKIP MEP Amjad Bashir. “They are rightly extremely concerned about David Cameron’s failure to protect this country from EU plans to tax the City of London. “More and more red tape from Brussels is threatening to strangle businesses. What they need is support and positive action and UKIP backs them fully,” said Mr Bashir, party spokesman for small and medium sized business. “Leading businessmen have written to the Prime Minister asking him to put protections for the City at the heart of his renegotiation strategy. But that’s likely to go the same way as his posturing about proposed European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker. “He talks the talk but it is futile and the only way to protect business, the lifeblood of this country, is for us to leave the EU and then regulation will flow from elected MPs in Westminster and not foreign bureaucrats,” said Mr Bashir, MEP for Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.

Membership Soaring Upwards Says UKIP

April 2, 2014
By

News that UKIP’s membership is continuing to rise, with the party now at an all-time high of 35,081 members, has been welcomed by prospective MEP Jane Collins. “There is no doubt that UKIP is the biggest story in British politics this year. Our messages and policies are clearly capturing the public imagination and they are joining us in droves. “We have had almost 2,500 new members who have joined so far this year alone and we are on an upward trajectory,” said Mrs Collins, who is standing for election in Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. “The other parties would have you believe people aren’t interested in politics anymore but these brilliant new membership figures show just the opposite. “They are disillusioned with the other main parties but see UKIP as a breath of fresh air and one with common sense policies and views. “And it is no longer just Tory votes we are taking but also from the Labour Party and both those parties are very worried about the threat we pose,” she added.

Current Deputy Chief Fire Officer Dene Sanders has become promoted to the role and will take over from 1 April next year. The Service’s current Assistant Chief Fire Officer, Chris Blacksell, has also successfully been appointed to take the position as Deputy Chief Fire Officer from April.

Chief Fire Officer Richard Hannigan said: “Both officers have proven to be highly effective in their current roles and I am confident that they will provide the continuity of leadership to take the Service forward in these challenging times.” Dene Sanders has extensive service with the organisation, having joined as a firefighter in 1986 and served in many areas, on both sides of the river in a variety of roles including Divisional Commander, before joining the Corporate Management Team at headquarters.

Communities along the East Coast of the Humber area are warned to brace themselves ahead of what is likely to be the most serious coastal tidal surge for over 30 years in our region. This has led to a major incident being declared as emergency services and local authorities across the Humber prepare for an ingression of water during high tide periods later this evening from around 1700hrs onwards. The Environment Agency and Met Office are warning that gale-force winds, large waves and a tidal surge caused by low pressure will combine with high tides today and throughout Friday and to Saturday morning, bringing a risk of significant coastal flooding. North East Lincolnshire is most likely to be affected by the high tides leading to possible breaches from Immingham, along the coastline to the Humberston Fitties. Residents living in the areas of Immingham, Grimsby and Cleethorpes close to the River Humber and coast line are advised to start taking precautions. Emergency services and partners are continuing to monitor the likelihood and will ensure that vulnerable members of the community are prioritized.
