McNarry: 17.4M voted for total Brexit – not a Tory sideshow 

Commenting on the Tory front-bench ‘turbulence’ on Brexit, UKIP Leader in Northern Ireland, David McNarry said:   

“What a carry on we have witnessed from those on the Government benches. First we had the spectacle of our Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson blundering on immigration and amnesties. That was swiftly followed by Brexit Secretary, David Davis continually dodging on payments to stay in the single market.        

Talk about whipping up a ‘soft Brexit’ and providing a boost to those remainers who still seek to completely undermine the June referendum result.”

Mr. McNarry added:

“Is this Tory turbulence on our EU exit a gaffe, or is this the real negotiating plan unfolding in front of our eyes? 

It’s time to harden the line, hold this Government’s feet to the fire and push them on sticking with the total or ‘hard’ Brexit that 17.4 Million people  voted for across the United Kingdom. The people were clear: Leave means Leave. The Tories need to get on with it.”

Jones: Nuttall election marks a big forward move for UKIP

Councillor David Jones has welcomed the election of Paul Nuttall MEP as the new Leader of UKIP.

Cllr. Jones said:

 “Paul Nuttall’s election is a watershed moment for UKIP after all the difficulties of the past few months. Paul has described UKIP as the party for ordinary working people, replacing Labour. It was Paul who engineered the Northern strategy for UKIP targeting Labour seats in the North of England in the first place. Now we will see that strategy delivered by a credible and experienced leader.”

“UKIP will advance nationally from this point forward. The dithering of this Tory government over brexit is no longer credible. Logic alone would dictate that brexit meant leaving the single market. What else could it mean? David Cameron certainly thought so.” 


“This nonsense about staying in the single market is precisely that – nonsense from people who can’t come to terms with the people’s explicitly expressed will. Negotiating a favourable trade deal has nothing to do with staying in the single market. 

It is an entirely new negotiation and the UK’s position will be considerably enhanced if we have a new USA trade deal with President Trump, something Nigel Farage’s close relationship with the new US administration will make possible.”

Cllr. Jones added:

“The future success of the UK is tied up with UKIP. That will become more apparent in the coming days under the clear-sighted leadership of Paul Nuttall.”

McNarry comments on UKIP Leadership result  

Commenting on today’s UKIP Leadership Election announcement, UKIP Leader in Northern Ireland, David McNarry said:           

“My warm congratulations to Paul Nuttall MEP. He will be a successful Leader of UKIP. Paul will unite and ignite the Party in terms of dignifying the integrity of the Brexit vote, and in preparing UKIP for the electoral challenges ahead.”

Mr. McNarry added:

“The Prime Minister would do the Country a favour in calling a General Election. UKIP will take many Labour seats and restore lost ground under the leadership of Paul Nuttall.”

What’s in it for Banks asks David Jones


Jones asks why has multi-millionaire Arron Banks said the DUP demanded £30,000 a month to support Leave.EU?

What’s in it for Banks asks David Jones?

Councillor David Jones of UKIP has expressed his disappointment at the allegations made by millionaire Arron Banks that the DUP demanded £30,000 a month to back the Leave.EU campaign during the EU referendum.

“If this has any truth in it, and I do take note that the DUP have denied it, it reflects very badly on Northern Ireland. What I find hard to understand is why Arron Banks has made these allegations. What is in it for him? What can he possibly gain through this? So, why has he said this?”

“People can, at least, have confidence in the fact that UKIP obtained the referendum for them as a matter of principle. Without UKIP pushing for a referendum for years, it would never have happened and people should never forget that.  Through all of this, I urge all who support brexit to stay together because there are enough enemies of brexit in the establishment working dishonestly to undermine the people’s vote in the referendum without brexit supporters falling out.”

UKIP is the true campaigning voice for Brexit in NI and across U.K. 


Responding to reports in the media regarding DUP demands during the EU Referendum campaign, a UKIP Spokesman said:


“Sadly, the claims regarding DUP demands and pre-conditions before lifting a finger to campaign for Brexit come as little surprise to UKIP. This is further evidence to show just how committed certain parties were and are to leaving the EU.

“350,000 committed LEAVE voters in Northern Ireland now have some food for thought in future. The DUP’s level of commitment to Brexit was all too evident throughout the referendum ground campaign, as only a handful of their members made the effort to campaign to LEAVE (for any campaign group).”

“When you add the project-fear peddling remainers of Ulster Unionism to the mix, it is abundantly clear for all to see that UKIP was, is and remains the original and active campaigning voice for Brexit in Northern Ireland and in all corners of the United Kingdom.

We will continue to keep the pressure on the local parties and Prime Minister May’s Government to ensure that leave means leave.”

Jones: Crisis Follows Crisis in local healthcare 

Crisis Follows Crisis.
Another report has been released stating nursing staff found to be under stress at Craigavon Area Hospital.

To those who themselves, or who have had relatives, at A&E or in the hospital this comes as no surprise.

We at UKIP would at this point pay tribute to the nursing staff and in fact all staff at the hospital because while we receive concerns about the hospital the majority of the time tribute is paid to staff, especially the circumstances under which they work.

This report follows hard on the heels of the difficulties at the Portadown Health Centre. Following a local meeting of the BMA it appears the situation could even worsen. 

Councillors, including UKIP Councillor David Jones, who had contact with representatives of the Southern Trust, came away with little confidence the situation would improve drastically in the immediate future.

So where from here? Clearly the answer lies at Stormont and the Executive. We see, however, they are prepared to waste time on issues for which they have little responsibility and can do nothing about rather than deal with this chronic health issue.

Stormont has been in receipt of report after report on health care. Other than piecemeal solutions, nothing much has happened. Of the budget set aside to reduce hospital waiting lists half was hived off to other areas. This is nothing short of criminal.

It is time the nettle of health care in Northern Ireland was grasped and sorted. How many more reports, and at what cost, are required?
The responsibility lies with your MLAs. What are they doing? You need to ask!

McNarry: IFA decision on the Poppy is gutless 

Commenting on the decision by the IFA to fall in line with a FIFA directive on the display of the Poppy on the Northern Ireland Team kit,  UKIP Leader in NI – David McNarry said:

“Northern Ireland fans will recoil with justifiable anger in response to the spineless decision to ditch the Poppy and wear black armbands.           

What would have been the outcome if those who made the supreme sacrifice had worried about sanctions?”   

“England and Scotland have stuck by their principles and their fans. The IFA has lost its backbone. This gutless stance does not represent the fans position.”

Mr. McNarry added:   

“Boycott is not backing the team. So come on IFA: Overturn your outrageous decision and let the team show solidarity with the Country. Put on the Poppy.”

McNarry: Securing the constitutional imperative a matter for Foster

“Securing the ‘Constitutional Imperative’ rests with the First Minister, Arlene Foster” says David McNarry.   

The UKIP Leader in Northern Ireland said: 

“Unionists must resist all pressures to water down the Border. A Brexit Border is between the United Kingdom and the European Union. 

How hard the border is depends on the flexibility of the EU. ”

Commenting further, Mr. McNarry added:

“There can be no suggestion of an imaginary border or tampering with territorial ownership. Unionists have a tough battle ahead in fighting off betrayals in the negotiations to exit the EU. 

We cannot allow others to weaken the Constitution.”

Encouraging words in health report but now is the time for delivery 

Responding to the latest report from the NI Health Minister, UKIP Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Councillor, David Jones said:  

“We in UKIP welcome some of the findings from the Minister in this latest Health Report. UKIP were right in our Manifesto earlier this year: Therefore we welcome this call to use ‘all’ sources in order to put patients across Northern Ireland first.”

Councillor Jones added:

“Words are easy however- the time is now for action. We demand a full action implementation plan with delivery dates set. 

In order to have the best health service possible for all of the people in Northern Ireland, Executive action is required, not simply Executive buzz-words.” 

Prime Minister’s letter to First & Deputy First Minister is worrying: A Capitulation on border control



Responding to the Prime Minister – Theresa May’s letter to the First and Deputy First Minister, UKIP Leader in Northern Ireland, David McNarry said:


“The Prime Minister’s letter is worrying. This letter portrays a downplaying of Border Controls and it gives the game of double-talk away. The Prime Minister refers to ‘free movement of people.’ Borders cannot be controlled when continuing to allow the unlimited free movement of people, meaning ‘all people‘.

“In June, 17.4 Million people voted to take back control right across this United Kingdom-  that includes Northern Ireland.”

Mr. McNarry added:


“The message emanating from Ten Downing Street appears to be a capitulation to letting unlimited border crossing into the United Kingdom from anywhere –  via the Irish Republic. We must press for clarification on Mrs May throwing open a porous border.”
