Southwark UKIP candidate Elizabeth Jones says she intends to make sure Britain leaves the EU

UKIP came fourth in Bermondsey and Old Southwark in the 2015 general election and Elizabeth Jones wants to build on that position this time around.

The family lawyer, who lives in Clapham, is a seasoned campaigner and candidate for UKIP, having fought the Dartford seat in Kent in 2015, winning almost 20 per cent of the vote.

She was involved in forming a free-standing UKIP branch in Southwark in 2013 and served as its vice chairwoman from 2014-2015.

“Only one thing has changed since 2015,” she said in a statement. “The majority of the people have chosen Brexit, and I intend to make sure that that is what we get. I know voters in this constituency want an end to uncontrolled immigration.

“They are fed up that whilst the left-wing Labour Party says it’s the government’s fault that our public services are stretched beyond their limits, many people know that it is the huge, uncontrolled rise in the population through immigration and the ensuing baby boom that is the underlying cause.”

  1. Hope she wins. Westminster needs Brexiteers, people who firmly believe in independence for the UK.
