    Republished below is the Chairman of UKIP’s announcemnt re the forthcoming Richmond Park by election.

    Why UKIP will not stand in the Richmond Park by-election.

    On Tuesday 25th October Zac Goldsmith MP announced that he was resigning as the Conservative MP for Richmond Park, in light of the Government’s announcement on a third runway at Heathrow.

    Zac Goldsmith has resigned on a matter of principle and UKIP admire him for having the courage to do so. UKIP have always believed that Gatwick was a preferred option to Heathrow.

    Recognising Zac as a principled man, who was fully committed to helping get Britain out of the European Union, UKIP Leader Nigel Farage, in conjunction with our National Executive Committee have agreed that we will not be fielding a candidate in the upcoming by-election for Richmond Park.

    The Liberal Democrats are committed to overturning the result of the 2016 referendum and ignoring the will of the British people. This must not be allowed to happen.

    UKIP are encouraging all of our supporters and voters to support Zac Goldsmith in his bid to become an independent MP.

    • Common sense, indeed. Not only did the Lib Dems ignore 80 % of Cornish Opinion in a poll against The Unitary Authority, they are committed Europhiles, intent on trying to get European rules suffocating British law.

      They must be stopped in their tracks. They are dangerous for democracy and ignore that The Lisbon Treaty wants to abolish national parliaments. They try to cover this up, but there are too many of us spilling the beans.
