UKIP SUPPORTED THE VISIT OF DONALD TRUMP
Letter from Steve Halden in the Advertiser Ist Aug
GDPR is part of the latest flood of EU regulations to hit the business community.
Business and political parties have been knocked sideways by this glut of new EU red tape.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union (EU).
Britain voted to leave the EU on 23rd June 2016.
For some reason that I dont fully understand Britain is still adopting all the red tape regulations that come gushing out of the EU parliament in Brussels.
Letter published in the Advertiser 24th July 2018
In reply to Kevin Small 20th July, it is our MPs refusal to implement the EU referendum result that is the problem.
Both Major parties promised to take Britain out of the EU in their 2017 General Election Manifestos.
But once the election was over both major parties decided that they wanted to stay in a Customs Union.
The ruling elite have decided that the working class made a mistake in wanting to take back control of our borders.
They have decided that the free movement of people is the option that the working class should have chosen.
The EU is trying to destroy YouTube
(Letter published in the Advertiser 13th July 2018)
The European Union is trying to bring in tougher new copywrite laws that could put YouTube out of business.
Copywrite infringements mean that the singers are not getting sufficient money under the existing system say the EU.
The young generation have grown up with YouTube and they would find it a shock if it was suddenly blocked by the EU.
Britain voted to leave the EU on 23rd June 2016 but at the moment we are still following all the laws put out by the EU, so if it was blocked Britain would have to follow that ruling.
UKIP is the party for the young generation
Martin Wicks (June 15) was right to highlight that the housing affordability crisis is still getting worse in Swindon.
In the private sector the monthly rent for a three bedroom family home is now £850. This has gone up 17% in the last four years.
Recent changes to Housing Benefit regulations have reduced the help that is available to the young generation.
The outlook for the future is quite bleak. High house prices have put buying properties out of reach.
This means that more and more people will find themselves in the private rented sector because so many council houses have to sold off under the Right to Buy legislation.

The housing crisis in Swindon
Martin Wicks made some very good comments in the Swindon Advertiser on
23rd April about how the young generation are struggling to cope with high house prices and rents in Swindon.
He blames the Right To Buy scheme as one of the main reasons for creating the shortage of council houses.
It seems that 8,000 council houses have been sold in Swindon and this has made the housing waiting list very much longer for young people.
There has been a corresponding rise in the number of people using the private rented sector, where prices are high and the tenancies are not secure and usually only six months to a year.
My opinion is that the young generation are the flower of the nation. All young people deserve a decent home to raise their family.
It is in eveyones interest to help the young generation to make a good start in life.
The best possible start we can give them is that they should have a decent place to live.

Single Market restrictions on Business
In reply to John Dennis (14 May) I am afraid his idea of encouraging businesses to move up north into areas where houses are cheap would be illegal under EU Law.
Within the EU Single Market these things must be left to market forces and any interference is classed as state aid and strictly against the rules.
If we want to provide affordable homes for the young generation then we have no option but for local councils to start building council houses.
300,000 council houses will need to be built every year because at the present time there are two million people waiting for a council house and the lists are growing all the time.
If we started building at this speed it would still take about seven years to clear the backlog of people currently on council house the waiting list.
