BATH UKIP is the voice of UKIP in the Bath constituency and is part of UKIP Bath & North East Somerset Branch. We campaign actively across the Bath constituency which includes the City of Bath, a world heritage site with global significance.
Our focus is on the people who live and work in Bath. We believe in upholding democracy, protecting local jobs, preserving our environment, safeguarding our national identity, culture, heritage and defending our sovereignty.

UKIP belives we have a right to decide British laws and regulations

UKIP is committed to supporting people who live in the Bath constituency and the wards contained within it. Each year, voters elect ever more UKIP Councillors across the UK. UKIP Councillors are free from party whips and act on behalf of their constituents, not the party. People are justly worried about local issues such as crime, hospitals, schools, transport and the environment. Bath UKIP is campaigning hard to increase UKIP’s representation on Bath & North East Somerset Council and to give local residents what they lack, such as more control over their communities and more say in what happens in the city and its streets.

THE ESTABLISHMENT PARTIES ARE LOSING ELECTIONS TO UKIP – that’s why they are now reluctantly talking about the issues that you care about, like immigration and the EU – don’t let them go back to their old habits
UKIP IS POPULAR – because our party is made up and supported by normal people who are simply sick and tired of their genuine concerns not being addressed by the “old” parties
The UK Independence Party UKIP is continually advancing. We gained nearly 4 million votes nationally, in the 2015 General Election, a 12.6% share of the total vote and an increase of 9.5% since 2010. Nationally, we won first place at the 2014 European elections, our best performance ever, with 24 MEPs elected. This victory marked the first time in modern history that neither Labour nor the Conservatives won a British national election. Across the Bath & North East Somerset counting area, UKIP achieved a close second place. UKIP now has elected AMs in the Welsh Assembly and we are gaining an ever greater share of seats on local councils. Never under-estimate what UKIP has achieved thanks to grass-roots support all over the country
For many years UKIP has been instrumental in campaigning to leave the European Union. Locally, our Branch played an active part in this campaign. We took part in the Brexit campaign in the early part of 2016 which came to a most successful conclusion on 23rd June 2016 when 51.9% of the country voted to leave (a turnout of 72.2%) including 44,352 people across Bath and North East Somerset. There would never have been a referendum on our EU membership had it not been for UKIP and without us Great Britain would now be well on the road towards an ever closer European Union.
UKIP Bath & North East Somerset Branch is rapidly expanding. Every member makes a difference to us and our ability to campaign in our area. We have a separate Young Independence section for members aged under 30.
