Congratulations, Councillor David Owens!

Congratulations to David Owens, who yesterday easily beat all other Parties in Fenside ward, Boston to become our new borough councillor in Lincolnshire. His share of the vote outstripped all those of Labour, Tories, Lib Dems and UKIP combined.

Cllr. Wayne McDermot, the BNP's East Midlands Election Officer, who managed the campaign said:

"The BNP campaign was fought on national issues, and on immigration in particular.

"There are two important implications in this result; the first is that there are a large number of similar wards in and around Boston, in which this result could easily be replicated. Boston therefore has the potential to become a key area for the BNP.

"The other important factor is the total collapse of UKIP. In the 2004 Euro elections, Lincolnshire was one of the strongest areas to come out for UKIP, and it is clear that the BNP has now surpassed that group as the premier anti-EU party of choice for those voters."

Councillor David Owens

BNP 279

Boston Bypass Independant 141
