UKIP and the Brexit Party are all Brexiteers. We are all on the same side. UKIP members tend to support both parties.
Martin Costello had a letter printed in the Advertiser 1st November Thursday.
The letter by Tony Mayer (Oct 26) is again promoting his idea for a second referendum on the EU.
The main question for the public to decide is whether 45 years of EU membership has made Britain a better place to live.
In the 1960's this country had 25 years of continuous boom conditions culminating with cheap houses, high wages and generous company pension schemes.
In 2018 we have had 10 years of recession. Britain is in permanent austerity with millennials facing a bleak future of high house prices and rents.
Any fair assessment of the economic situation would come to the conclusion that life was better in the 1960's and that the last 45 years of EU membership has been a disaster for the working class in Britain.

Martin Costello had a letter printed in the Advertiser 19th October
The letter from Tony Mayer (Oct 15) describes the EU as a prosperous club of nations.
He has conveniently forgotten the economic crash of 2008 that required British banks to be bailed out to the tune of a trillion pounds from the British taxpayers.
This was followed by ten year of terrible austerity as the government struggled to balance the books.
This ten years of austerity has led to the worst housing crisis in living memory with house prices far out of the reach of the ordinary British working class and no possibility of prices ever coming down.
At the same time there has been a growing crisis in the NHS. Most National Health Trusts are deep in deficit and the whole system is close to collapse with many people wondering how the NHS is ever going to survive.
The EU is not the prosperous club of nations as described by Tony Mayer. It is quite the opposite. There are many countries in the EU in a far worse economic state than Britain. The main countries suffering are Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain.
It is membership of the European Union that has caused all the economic problems to the countries of Europe. Britain was very wise to vote to leave the EU.

Letter published by Martin Costello in the Advertiser today 8th October 2018
ITS TIME TO LEAVE
The letter from Peter Smith (Oct 1) rightly lists many of the serious problems facing the working class in Britain today.
Wages have hardly risen since 2008, company pensions have been reduced and most of the public utilities have been privatised.
To this list can be added the crisis in the NHS and the sky high house prices and rents which hurt the young generation more than anybody else.
All these problems have been created by our 45 year membership of the EU. It is only by leaving the EU and taking back control of our economy that these problems can be corrected.

Letter by Martin Costello the Swindon Advertiser 29th September 2018 David Collins (Sept 25) is correct to talk about the bright future that awaits Britain outside the EU.
The last forty five years of EU membership have been disastrous and have almost brought the British economy to its knees.
We have endured seven years of continuous Conservative austerity. This austerity has failed to balance the books and for the foreseeable future the policy of spending cuts will have to continue.
House prices have rocketed beyond the reach of the ordinary working class. Wages have been steadily ground down to a level below what they were worth before the economic crash of 2008.
Only by breaking the strangle hold that the EU has on business can Britain break free and reach the sunny uplands of future prosperity.
Under Treason May we will leave the EU in name only.
She has frustrated the process from the start and will probably call a snap election in a bid to see a second referendum.
If you actually want the Brexit we voted for, think long and hard where you place that cross X.
Letter by Martin Costello the Swindon Advertiser 19th Sept 2018 It is now the official policy of the Bank of England that houses will be cheaper after we leave the EU.
This is excellent news for the young generation and anyone who rents property. Rents are tied to house prices so if house prices fall then everyone who rents their homes will gain financially.
The biggest problem facing the young generation is finding a home to rent or buy at an affordable price.
This latest forecast of cheaper housing by the Bank of England is very good news for the young generation.
Letter by Martin Costello the Swindon Advertiser 12th Sept 2018 It seems that Swindon is to get a new day centre for the homeless, based at the Riverside Centre in Queens Drive. It will include a temporary winter hostel for rough sleepers.
£194,000 of central government funding will help with the cost of running the day centre and the project is to run for three years.
But it was less than a week ago that Swindon Council were saying how proud they were to have sold 73 council houses during the last year by offering even larger discounts for Right-to-Buy residents.
It appears that civilization is going backwards in Britain. We are the fifth richest country in the world but we take it as normal that the number of homeless families and rough sleepers is expected to rise during the next few years.
Britain has got its priorities all wrong. The priority should be to get all working class families into decent permanent accommodation providing a salubrious environment for young children to flourish and grow.
Martin Costello has resumed his work with UKIP Party chairman Tony McIntyre has conducted an enquiry and Martin Costello has been cleared in order to resume his job as UKIP Chairman of Wiltshire.
Mr Costello, who stood as UKIP's Candidate for Swindon South in the 2017 General Election said: "I am absolutely delighted that after a short period of suspension and a full investigation by the party my membership has been reinstated and I have been exonerated.
The party has confirmed that no offence was committed by myself, and I am therefore happy to resume my work in Swindon campaigning as a member in good standing.
We now need to focus on providing a real alternative to voters in Swindon away from the tired Conservative/Labour duopoly, and to ensuring that the mandate for Brexit from the EU Referendum in 2016 is fully implemented."
Letter by Martin Costello in Advertiser 4th Sept The letter from Martin Wicks (Sept 3) is right to raise the growing housing crisis problem in Britain today.
The housing shortage is particularly bad for the young generation looking for affordable homes at the cheaper end of the market.
The Right-to-Buy scheme has led to the sale of over 2 million council houses. There can be no doubt that selling off council houses has added to the shortage of affordable homes.
It has been estimated that Britain needs to build a new home every five minutes day and night just to keep pace with the rising demand for affordable homes for the young generation.
Net migration is still running at 280,000 a year, this is like adding a City the size of Manchester every 2 years to our tiny island.
All these people need somewhere to live. This is totally irresponsible and crippling our infrastructure.
We are letting our children and grandchildren down all for the sake of cheap labour in order for big businesses to make more profit while diminishing our quality of life.

Martin Costello selected to be 2020 UKIP candidate for South Swindon
The Swindon UKIP Branch Committee selected Martin Costello to be the UKIP parliamentary candidate for South Swindon on 25th June 2018.
The UKIP leader Gerard Batten thinks that Theresa May might call a snap election in the Autumn of 2018 and he wants UKIP branches to be ready for the fight.
The meeting also decided to put up a UKIP candidate in North Swindon. A number of possible candidates are being considered, but the principle was agreed that Swindon UKIP would fight both parliamentary seats in Swindon at the next General Election.
