Skainos is partly funded by the EU. Denies access to UKIP. Shameful

UKIP in Northern Ireland

Today at 11am, The day of the Event, UKIP were informed that they have been barred from the Skainos Centre.

UKIP are in the process of relocating this evening’s Steven Woolfe MEP event on Brexit and Migration and will issue a statement during the afternoon on the new venue.

“This is a blatant attempt to stifle democratic expression of a legitimate national political party representing 4 million people across this country.”

    Considering the Entrenched polarisation that exists in the 6 Counties, it must be a cause of wonder that UKIP even try to get traction there ?

    UKIP is the only political party in the UK with elected representation in all four home countries.

    Pardon my Gringo California 1/2 a world away POV, but: What is a Skainos, why does this matter, and asuming it is some kind of convention center that cancelled at the last minute; is there no contract stipulating penalties for the rental cancellation?

    Guess I’m just too much capitalism immersed to “get it” about a building and a rental agreement / contract…

    Note the EU logo at the bottom of the Skainos website.
