Many adults in Mid Beds may be taken in by the UKIP party lines but not it seems, the youth. The picturesque village of Ampthill were *lucky* enough to play host to UKIP PPC Nigel Wickens yesterday. Mr Wickens, who I recently met, is a very charismatic and eloquent man so naturally I’m scared stiff he’ll pick up a lot of votes here in Mid Beds. Therefore, I was very relieved to see this lively, youth demonstration in my Facebook feed this morning. Setting themselves up in opposition to Nigel on the other side of town, the kids are reported to have had fun, been polite and got their message across. They even had a wave at Conservative PPC Nadine Dorries who drove by in her self-titled “Nad-Mobile”.
An eye-witness and local shop owner said “ukip were one side of town the kids were the other.. the heckling ukip were getting by members of the passing public was hilarious…. the kids were very very grown up and just did their bit but didn’t heckle”.
Tomorrow is the last day you can register to vote. PLEASE use your voice, even if like us you live in what is considered a “safe seat”. The 2010 election saw over 21,000 registered Mid Beds voters fail to use their voice. What a difference they could have made if only they felt their vote mattered. Don’t believe the propaganda, there really is no such thing as a safe seat!
