Welcome to the Canterbury UK Independence Party website.
We are committed to representing the views of the residents of Canterbury, Whitstable and surrounding villages, working to get a UKIP MP, increasing the UKIP share of the vote in the European elections, and challenging the top-down, cabinet led approach to the running of both Kent county and Canterbury city councils.
UKIP win in Canterbury!
An amazing result in the European elections, with UKIP taking the district. Full breakdown in the news section.
Douglas Carswell defects to UKIP!
The prominent Eurosceptic Conservative MP for Clacton, Douglas Carswell has defected to UKIP. The decision was called a "political bombshell" by the BBC.
In a massive move for the Party, Mr Carswell told a press conference in Westminster this morning that his position with the Tories had become "untenable".
He told reporters that he thinks "many" other Tory MPs will now follow his move and join him in the UKIP ranks because the Conservative leadership was "not serious" about change in the UK's relationship with the European Union.
A by-election will now be held in Mr Carswell's Essex seat and he plans to represent UKIP when the poll is announced, standing on the core belief he shares with UKIP, that Britain would be better off outside of the EU.
