Congratulations to UKIP North Tyneside for holding a very successful public meeting last night. By far the majority of attendees were not UKIP members and we enjoyed a very lively debate about what UKIP stand for on everything from the NHS to income tax.
It is always a pleasure to meet constituents through my role as an MEP and I was delighted to see so many members of the public turn up to hear from UKIP and our very strong local candidate in Tynemouth – Gary Legg.
Thank you to UKIP North Tyneside for a great evening. Over my first few months as an MEP, it has been a pleasure to see UKIP continuing to grow all across the North East; from Darlington in the south to Berwick in the North. I look forward to attending many more grass roots events right across the North East in the near future.
