Paul Rogan, UKIP’s parliamentary candidate for Calder Valley, has kicked off his tour of pubs and clubs across the Calder Valley in Brighouse.
Mr Rogan will give speeches on different aspects of UKIP policy in the towns and villages throughout the Calder Valley.
In his first speech Mr Rogan addressed the Brighouse Forward Partnership in Clifton.
He drew parallels between Britain’s struggle against the Roman Empire in the First Century AD and Britain’s current relationship with the European Union.
He said: “If you want a referendum on the EU, vote UKIP. If you feel immigration is too high and must be addressed, vote UKIP.
“If you are not overly concerned about these two matters, UKIP is probably not the party for you.”
He added that UKIP is a party fighting for to take power away from career politicians.
He said: “It’s about taking power away from the Westminster elite and bringing democracy back to the man and woman in the street.
“The People’s Army is against cronyism, corruption and elitist politicians and that is another reason to support what UKIP is fighting for - a fairer and more democratic Britain.”
“All we ask is a ‘small step’ from the individual by putting your cross on a ballot paper for UKIP - this will make a ‘giant leap’ for Great Britain. Believe and it will happen,” he said.
