Grassroots needs an effective party machine.

My name is Alan Stone. I have been a County Chairman and am currently Chairman of Basingstoke branch and a parliamentary Candidate.

I am sorry to send my communications using a multiple recipient method. I have always preferred talking to each and every one of you personally and less officially. I fix things quietly. 

UKIP should be at its height now. Post referendum and with both main parties split on how the UK should exit the EU. But it is not happening. Internal and publicly aired bullshit is destroying the heart of our grassroots members. We, at this end, have only had the bad news pushed on us by a mainstream media that love kicking us. I run a very successful business. If my Staff publicly disrespected my business, there would be and has been very serious consequences. 
I predicted UKIP would loose a percentage of its membership post referendum. I hoped UKIP would slim down, rejecting the carpet baggers and "politically correct" back stabbers. UKIP has to develop the natural talent bubbling under and come out as a lean, mean social political fighting machine, run by people from real life. We must insist on unity and team spirit.
The Conservative Government is busy applying UKIP policies. Why are we not crowing about this? We should be proud of the fact that both major parties are adopting our work. I implore you all, sing UKIP praises loudly and every day. Poo poo the bad press, it is still the establishment hitting out at UKIP.
As UKIP officials and activists, we have a responsibility to communicating a united front to our membership or the damage from the establishment will be irreversible.  We must work together and come up with a solid set of BREXIT and County Council policies. Our army of leaflet designers and deliverers have nothing new to work with. We are stagnating at home. In Hampshire I destroyed 2 tons of out of date material, with wrong phone numbers, out of date policies and photos of people no longer associated with the party. A simple set of working policies will give branches something to work with Something new and easy to adapt to our localities.. 
Obviously our stance on the Armed services and Border control are important but, some social UKIP  policies are essential.
We must allow all EU citizens that are legally living in the UK, on the date of the referendum, to remain.
We must generate a “Buy and employ British” mentality 
We must support council owned social housing.
We must stop benefits for non full uk residents. 

I am sure we can all think of of a few more and we must.
We must refresh and update our 2015 manifesto. 
 Write to your county or regional teams. Let them know the strengths of  your branch and members. Pass on the positive thoughts on policy that are discussed locally not just the negatives. 

I do not need to bleat on about recent national issues that dominate the press. We are all aware of them. We need to quickly grab the initiative and show our members that we still have the skills and intelligence to take this great party forward. UKIP was built on a very strong foundation, it is a shame we let the cowboys build our second floor.

For your information,
I rarely write emails to you. I know how busy you are. Please have the decency to comment, reply and forward this mail to any active member.

I PROMISE I will not leak any replies.

Your sincere supporter 

Alan Stone
UKIP Basingstoke.
Director of Basingstoke Business Improvement District.
Chairman of Basingstoke Top of Town Association.
