UKIP: Summer success in Frimley
From the official website:
The first sunny Saturday of summer witnessed quite a revelation as 450 paying guests rocked up to the Lakeside centre in Frimley, Surrey to enjoy a day of passionate speeches and optimism.
UKIP's South East day conference was a resounding success, and was a great credit to Roger Bird, the Surrey UKIP chairman and the indefatigable hard work of the all-purpose dynamo that is Ray Finch. They had put together a top notch team of speakers on broad policy from Nigel Farage, of course, to Patrick O'Flynn of Her Majesty's Daily Express, the deputy leader Paul Nuttall, straight off the red eye having been spreading the party message in Washington, and new UKIP MEP Roger Helmer.
With that great line up came the specialists, Russell Hicks talking about getting out the message, new Cllr Piers Wauchope and Cllr Mark Staplehurst giving us their wisdom of his experience in door to door campaigning, Cllr Chris Adams on the day job of a councillor, Alexandra Swann on converting Tory waverers and Tim Aker on policy development among others.
New ideas were presented, new faces were seen and a new energy was palpable.
Of course the big moment for many was the unveiling of veteran broadcaster and famed BBC Radio 1 DJ Mike Read, who spoke with courage and passion about what it means to be politically involved in a country whose leaders have given up on the future.
The place was bursting at the seams, and to be frank, no other party today in Britain could have put on such a show and received such wholehearted support. The Tories cancelled their Spring conference this year and are desperately cutting their entry fee for their annual beanfeast, Labour despite the Government's unpopularity are treading water, with a lack of fire and enthusiasm, and the Lib Dems, well quite. But here in this quite corner of Surrey we could see that the only party that can inspire people to give up a glorious summer's day is UKIP.
The Conference was called 'The Next Big Step'. All of us know full well that that step isn't into the unknown; it is a step towards a brighter future for the entire country as we continue to get bigger, and more importantly better at getting its message out there. We are winning the arguments, now, let us all concentrate on winning the votes.
The key point to be plugged is 'given up on the future of country'.
What is the "next big step" ?
The trouble with 'winning all the arguments' is that the BNP and other overt nationalist groups did that years ago concerning the EU and immigration when others were too timid to tackle those subjects. Our country is literally being murdered by just these two.

So, when will we have the British English Spring? Will it be soon, or never?
So after the love fest is "next big step" the usual empty words or is it a timescaled plan with someone credible in charge of implementing it ?
