Sabiha Choudhury continues UKIP's rise in Brighton

The results for the East Brighton By Election are in.

UKIP were contesting the ward for the very first time, and unfortunately resources meant we were unable to start campaigning before the postal votes went out - which accounted for a full 39% of the votes cast!

This is a very good result for us at this time. And when we are in a position to deploy resources on a similar scale to the parties that beat us, there is little doubt we will passing them as we have the Liberal Democrats.

Liberal Democrats592%
Trade Union Socialists552%

Turnout: 26%

Public Meeting Report - UKIP Brighton and Hove

Public Meeting Sponsored By
UK Independence Party

Tuesday 9th October 2012

A public meeting was held in Hove last night, which was sponsored by the UK Independence Party (UKIP).

The speaker, Marta Andreasen, spoke of the hindrances faced by Britain for being in the European Union.  Amongst those hindrances were the financial setbacks (the UK is about £150 billion worse off every year for remaining in the EU), social setbacks, and the fact that it is in the European Union’s interest for the UK to remain within it, rather than vice versa.

Afterwards, Marta received a standing ovation by everyone for her clarity on the European Union and Britons’ interests.

The meeting was attended by approximately 70 people, including Sabiha Choudhury, the UKIP candidate for the East Brighton by-elections next week.

Of Marta’s speech, Ms Choudhury says, “I think Marta explained it very well.  Until Britain leaves the European Union, we have no control of our future”.

Another attendee at the meeting was Margaret, a local businesswoman.  She said, “I feel as though I’ve been blind to politics all this time.  This has really opened my eyes.  I am in favour of leaving the EU”.

Marta Andreasen is an Argentine-born Spanish accountant, employed in January 2002 by the European Commission as Chief Accountant. She’s been a Member of the European Parliament for UKIP since 2009.
