Controversial UKIP politician Godfrey Bloom will address a party meeting in Harrogate on Monday.

Mr Bloom, MEP for Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire, will speak at the Harrogate and Knaresborough UKIP branch’s monthly meeting.

The talk will be held at the Old Swan Hotel, Harrogate.

The MEP sparked controversy last month when he claimed British aid should not be sent to ‘Bongo Bongo land’.

He has also suggested Britain’s Employment law should be torn up to allow small firms to sack women workers who become pregant.
Monday’s meeting is open to the public and starts at 7.30pm.

John Upex, UKIP’s Harrogate and Knaresborough (HAK) chairman, said: “Godfrey is a brilliant speaker vehemently against the EU’s increasing stranglehold on our country.

“He’s certainly not afraid to stick his head above the parapet.”

Mr Bloom, 63, will talk about United Kingdom’s relationship with Europe.

He will also answer questions from the floor in the one and a half hour meeting.

Mr Upex said the public meeting would give voters more information on the party, its policies and its candidates.

Mr Upex added: “Without a shadow of a doubt the next two years are the most important electorally for the United Kingdom.

“For UKIP, these will be the last ‘democratic’ chances we have to get our country back.”
