|Note from Ed: Young Independence, UKIP’s youth wing, have forwarded the following letter which they sent to the 3 candidates for the UKIP leadership. We will publish any replies that they receive.
8th November 2016
Dear Leadership Candidate,
We’re writing to you on behalf of Young Independence, the youth wing of UKIP.
As we’re sure you’ll agree, Young Independence is an important aspect of the whole ‘UKIP Family’. We are the young, fit and hard working foot soldiers of this party, delivering your leaflets and getting your councilors elected.
In Oldham back in 2015, Young Independence ran a full campaign, renting a house and helping John Bickley achieve a second place, one that we all worked hard for.
Young Independence is full of members who have expertise in running social media campaigns, online advertising and in creating attractive and compelling graphics to compliment campaigning.
We’re writing to you, as a candidate for the leadership of UKIP, to ask what your plans would be for furthering Young Independence, and making the party more attractive for the under 30s.
We will make both this letter and your responses public, we ask that you please get back to us by the 11th, when ballot papers are expected to start arriving.
