Euro MP Paul Nuttall has set himself a marathon task – holding a surgery in each of the 75 parliamentary constituencies in the North West before the end of the year. And these will not be ordinary political surgeries as they will all be held in a pub in each area.

“This is the launch my unique P2P campaign – Politics to the People. I have decided to hit the high road to bring politics to the voter,” said Mr Nuttall, North West MEP for the UK Independence Party. “European politics is so remote from the man in the street they have no idea who their MEPs are and what they do.p2ppub

My campaign involves getting out and about and explaining exactly what Euro MPs do. “I also want to explain how the EU adversely affects their daily lives. It is vital to make it relevant to the electorate,” said Mr Nuttall.

“The more people who realise just how much of their every day life is dictated by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels the better. I appreciate that many people are fed-up with politicians and mistrust them.

“I want to get out and meet as many members of the public as I can and answer their questions honestly and build up a bond of trust.” he added. UKIP is currently arranging the venues and dates for the surgeries.

  1. I agree, keep his updated both here and on the UKIP front-page or you will have little attending.

    I have already once emailed the UKIP website (without reply) and asked/suggested why they don’t update the site more often and provide more information. Basic info like what the constituencies are would be very helpful for the likes of me.

  2. Great idea Paul. I originate from Lancs and I don’t ever remember any politicians speaking in my area. I think the last might have been de Valera !

  3. It’s a great idea this. Wrether it will work or not I don’t know. What this campaign needs is more publicity. I think Paul should appear on something like North West Tonight or The One Show to make North West viewers think ‘I may go along to this!’ Also I agree with DominicJ. Where and when are these events happening?
