New UKIP leader coming to Gloucester

Gerard Batten MEP is to deliver a keynote address at Gloucester Guildhall in one of his first public meetings since becoming UKIP leader last month.

Mr Batten, who is a Member of the European Parliament for the London Region, has pledged to re-focus and re-energise the Eurosceptic party ahead of both the UK's exit from the European Union and of local elections, which are due to take place in May in many parts of the UK.

Mr Batten will also be visiting local business, UK Glass Eels at Over.

Gerard Batten MEP will be speaking at Gloucester Guildhall on Tuesday 20th March at 7pm. Doors open at 6.30pm. The public meeting will be followed by a buffet at the Old Bell in Southgate Street. 

Punchline says: "We have covered all political parties in the past. This is a chance to listen to the new leader speak and find out if UKIP is still relevant following the EU referendum. If you're interested in politics, go along and find out what he has to say."
