This is it

We only have 23 days left to get our country back, finally we have a chance to achieve what we all have been tirelessly fighting for by securing a leave vote on June 23rd.

We need your help,
UKIP plans on printing and distributing millions of leaflets and thousands of garden boards as part of our final push to win and crucially last week we began a major online advertising campaign. It is vital that we get the messages out that will win us this referendum:

  • That only by voting to leave can we control our borders and introduce a fair, Australian-style points-based immigration system.
  • That only by voting to leave can we make Britain safe and strengthen our defences against the increasing threat of terrorism.
  • That only by voting to leave can we take back control of our country.



We can’t win this referendum without you, please donate and help us win on June 23rd. This will be the only chance to vote to leave the EU that we will ever get and we must win.


Nigel Farage
UKIP Leader
