UKIP used Boston as a launching post to announce its European Election candidates.

Roger Helmer MEP, along with candidates Margot Parker, Jonathon Bullock, Nigel Wickens and Barry Mahoney were in Boston Market Place to launch their campaign and speak to passers-by.

MEP Derek Clark will be stepping down from his post at the end of his term.

The candidates gave their views on UKIP’s main policies which cover three key issues – energy, immigration and ‘making 2014 your referendum’.

Mrs Parker said: “We’re trying to bring the opportunity for people to vote for us and send a tremendous earthquake to politics in this country.

“We’re the only party really asking for a referendum and giving people the right to vote their way.”

Mr Helmer, who is hoping to retain his seat in the EU, said: “We’re the only different position, all the old parties want to stay in the EU and all the old ones want to cover the land in windfarms.”

He said UKIP is not against immigration, but reiterated the party’s demand for it to be controlled.

The candidates also visited Nottingham and Lincoln on the day, making Boston the only town on their launch campaign.
