YI Members Join Gateshead and Newcastle Action Day

UKIP were out in force in Gateshead and Newcastle on a sunny Saturday afternoon.

The usual wave of support was boosted by our victory in May’s European Elections, with many passers-by saying they voted for us and intended to stick with UKIP for the General Election next year. To see this level of support retained is certainly something for the party to savour, in an area where UKIP is now the opposition to Labour, having only narrowly missed out on seats in the Local Elections.

Young Independence were well represented, with our prospective Parliamentary candidate for Gateshead, John Tennant, and YI Tyne & Wear Chairman, Nick Sundin, canvassing voters in the July sunshine. Proceedings were also livened up by a spectacular flyover from the RAF Typhoons at Sunderland Airshow.

The People’s Army in the North East continues to gather backing and loyalty, and the reception we received, especially in Gateshead Town Centre, showed that this party is going places. Watch this space.
