Branch AGM on Tuesday 7 February 2017

7pm at Brun Grove Workingmen's Club, Brun Grove, Blackpool FY1 6PG
Dear Member

Following the resignation of the chairman and secretary last year the reins of the branch have been held by our interim chairman Paul White and our treasurer Paul Nield. With the tenure of all officials now beyond the grace period and expired a branch AGM is now overdue and, in accordance with Party Rule B.4.2.1, we are scheduling our AGM to fall between the beginning of January and the end of March along with most of the other branches in the UK.

The roles of Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and Membership Secretary are up for election and you are cordially invited to the AGM to meet the candidates and cast your vote or put yourselves forward for election

Two relevant rule reminders:

Firstly, if you wish to stand for election as an official:
B.3.6 Members of less than twelve months’ standing must be proposed and seconded by those who have been Party members for more than twelve months. The Party Chairman shall have the power to veto the election of any member of less than twelve months’ standing, within 21 calendar days of the AGM.

Secondly, if you wish to vote:
N.6.2 No new member shall be entitled to vote at any AGM, hustings or any branch, county or regional ballot until a period of 30 clear days has elapsed from the commencement of his or her membership (this rule only applies from 1st December 2014 to 1st May 2015); outside of these dates 6 months must have elapsed from the commencement of his or her membership.

The AGM will be chaired by the North West Regional Vice-Chairman, Ian Henderson.

See you there!

This arrived in my post bag. I therefore reserve the right to reproduce it on the Internet. I am not a member of Ukip, nor do I have any association with them, although we share a political ethos.  

Ukip supporters will not like this.  Blackpool South Ukip has been in turmoil ever since members tried to organise. It was one of the first to publish real minutes and true account for all members to see.  When the minutes and accounts were forwarded to Regional and Head offices, the reaction was devastating.  They were accused of stealing the logo, misappropriating subscriptions and other illegal activities.  Strange then that it allowed a barred Conservative former MP to join the party when ordinary concerned citizens followed their rules and the Rule makers Ruled Them OUT!

So if Paul Nuttal wants to achieve something as substantial as that achieved by Nigel Farage, he has to Drain the Swamp.  Then he has to correct his own historical reality and stop calling Irish.....Immigrants.  Until the 1923 Act we were all Brits living within the British Isles.
