UKIP Scotland Weekly Roundup

April 26, 2016

The election campaign is moving into the final stretch and UKIP are not slowing down. 


On Wednesday, the 21st, UKIP Leader Nigel Farage MEP joined UKIP Scotland Leader David Coburn MEP and our Highland Candidates on the streets of Inverness pushing the UKIP message in Nigel's first ever walkabout in Scotland. 

 Following the walkabout, Nigel, David and the team headed to a hotel on the beautiful banks of Loch Ness for a beer tasting session and a chance for some of the candidates to meet Nigel. The mediia coverage was excellent, such as this piece in the Strathspey and Badenoch Herald.


Following the success of Wednesday, UKIP's Lothian candidates took up the mantle. Lead Candidate Alan Melville followed on from his appearance at last week's Edinburgh Northern & Leith hustings with some excellent followup questions (available here) whilst Stuart McLuckie took on Kezia Dugdale in Portobello


On the 21st, the first of our Bus Banners went out across Scotland, bringing the UKIP promise to 'Shake Up Holyrood' to more people than ever before. And the following day, our Election leaflet started coming through letter boxes. 


And from here, the week just gets better! On Friday, we posted our Window Poster, which you can download and print here.


And over the weekend, The Times published an excellent biography of David (available here on his personal blog), while STV's website carries "A Conversation with David Coburn" which is well worth reading, even though it is a bit long!

To round off the week, yesterday, the BBC broadcast their long-awaited interview between David Coburn and Gary: Tank Commander. I'm sure many of you have seen it, but if you haven't, or just want to watch it again, you can see it on BBC iPlayer.


And this brings us to the end of  another week. There's only one more Roundup before the Election!

Yours Aye
