THE UK Independence Party has voted in a list of candidates for the 2009 European Elections including Nikki Sinclaire, from Solihull.

Nikki is to stand as a West Midlands candidate in the June elections.

She said: “We will give the voters the chance to say no to the Lisbon Treaty/EU Constitution that the Government, supported by the Lib Dems, reneged on their election promise to give the people a say.

“The people of Solihull will also have a chance to say no to giving the EU £40 million a day and 75% of our laws originating from the unelected EU Commission. UKIP is the only party saying no to this and we urge the electorate to lend us their vote in June to say ‘No’ to the EU.”

Ms Sinclaire added: “The current situation is simply unacceptable. The EU costs British people billions, and controls far too many of our national policies. The people want a new deal, where we can trade and cooperate with Europe but not suffer all the tax, bureaucracy and meddling that comes with full EU membership.

“That deal can be achieved, and it is in the interests of all of us that we take back control and only UKIP can deliver on this.”

In the last European elections, UKIP was only 4,500 votes short of having a second West Midlands MEP and beat the Liberal Democrats for third place. Nikki has been voted second on the list and has a realistic chance of being elected.

Nikki is joined by other UKIP candidates for 4 June 2009, including Mike Nattrass MEP, from Sutton Coldfield, Jill Seymour, from Telford, Peter Jennings, from Edgbaston, Malcolm Hurst, from Stafford and Jonathan Oakton, from Redditch. Liz Hazell, from Walsall, is reserve, pending a final decision on whether the West Midlands representation will be reduced from seven to six.
