    Thanks, Councillor Choudhary for joining UKIP – now the third largest political Party in the U.K. Together we’ll have a huge impact on future elections – both for MEPs and MPs., and also best wishes to Ian Lang for his election on the 14th. February – as a Scot by birth, I originally came from Lanarkshire – Wester Auchinloch, nr Lenzie. Good to see all the voluntary organisations he is involved in – I, at the tender age of 84, have been involved in numerous voluntary organistations, including some 17 years on the Committee of a Housing Association until I became dis-illusioned.

  2. Alan M. Etheridge says:

    A big welcome to Mr. Choudhary to UKIP, a party that believes in freedom of speech rather than the dogma of the large Parties

  3. Gabi Coleman says:

    Thank you for having the courage to join the persecuted Party. Here you will enjoy honest debate about ALL issues that need addressing both locally and nationally, welcome. Kind regards to you, Gabi.
