Policy Survey for UKIP NEC Candidates October 2019

We have sent a policy survey to all candidates in the current NEC election, as we have done at all Party Leadership elections since 2016, and we are publishing their replies on this page.

The questions are in normal text, the answers are in italics.


We have received replies from:

Relationships Education was introduced in primary schools in England in September 2019 and will be compulsory in September 2020. A programme called “No Outsiders” has been used in some schools since April 2019 and has led to protests from parents.

  1. Do you agree that sexual orientation should be taught to primary school children?

    Absolutely not!

    While I'm against criminalising more things, polluting children's minds with such poppycock should be socially treated as a form of child abuse.


  2. Do you agree that gender identity should be taught to primary school children?

    Absolutely not!

    While I'm against criminalising more things, polluting children's minds with such poppycock should be socially treated as a form of child abuse.

Sex is defined at conception, depending on the male sperm which carries an X or Y chromosome, so that the child is either XX (female) or XY (male). Other combinations exist but are very rare. Our chromosomes remain the same for life, from conception until death.

Gender is not so easy to define.

  1. Do you agree with one or more of the following?

    1. Gender is the same as sex and cannot be changed.

      No

    2. Gender is a grammatical term that defines the pronoun to be used with a noun.

      Yes, but this is not a definition of gender, merely a property of it. It is one of its uses, in this case grammatical, and regrettably leads to excrescences like "her penis was peeping out of the top of her trousers".

    3. Gender is subject to a mental and psychological process that allows us to identify as male, female, or anything else we like, regardless of our sex.

      Insufficient, so - No.

      Mental and psychological processes are an essential part of any transition, but without major hormonal and other drivers as well, and perhaps anatomical changes too, such identification may even be bogus or the result of confusion and liable to the subject wishing to reverse whatever has happened in their head or body


    4. Gender is none of the above (please specify what it might be).

      Gender is, for the overwhelming majority, the same as biological sex (i.e., XX, XY and the <0.1% of other combinations).

      Strong evidence is required for deviation from this standard, and more than mere declarations of "other identification" is needed. Else, flippant or antisocial (the prison dilemma) changes are guaranteed to occur, and these will make the law into an even bigger ass than it already is.


  2. Do you agree that people who self-identify as a chosen gender should expect others to affirm their chosen gender, using the correct names and pronouns and consenting to the use of the chosen bathrooms and toilets, regardless of what they actually believe?

    Not without a lot more evidence than a mere declaration, which could be made on a whim or with a sinister agenda. The rights of the rest of the population (e.g. re toilets or competitive sports) are just as important.

  3. During the reporting year 2009/10 a total of 97 children in the UK (40 girls and 57 boys) were referred by doctors for gender treatment. In 2017/18 the number had risen to 2519 (1,806 girls and 713 boys). This is an increase, during an 8-year period, of 4,410% for girls and 1,151% for boys.(1) Do you consider this to be the progress of science or do you think something has gone wrong?

    The conclusion is that children are being abused. There's something rotten in the state of Denmark ...

  4. Do you agree that parents are the primary nurturers and educators of their children and should be allowed to pass on their values to their children in their own way, without interference from the State?

    Yes. The way modern life has evolved means the odds are against this, though.

  5. Do you believe that marriage is for life, to provide a secure environment for raising children and not to be dissolved lightly, or do you agree with divorce on demand (the so-called “no fault divorce”)?

    Yes, of course, unless their values (e.g. vampirism, cannibalism) are wholly incompatible with the law.

  6. There are currently 286 known abortion survivors in the world although the actual number is estimated to be much greater.(2) At what stage in their lives do they acquire rights, including the right to life?

    1. At conception;
    2. When a heartbeat can be detected;
    3. At birth;
    4. During childhood;
    5. When they become adults.

      Somewhere between a. and b.

  7. Should health professionals have the absolute right as a matter of conscience to refuse to participate in abortion, without penalty to career prospects or other adverse consequences?

    Unless that was an explicit contractual part of their job (in which case they explicitly consented), yes.

  8. Would you be in favour of opening up the Family Courts to public scrutiny under the same rules of privacy that currently apply to sexual offence cases in the criminal courts?

    The Family Courts, as often exposed by the late Christopher Booker, have a political, anti-man and anti-family pseudo-Marxist agenda.

    But more protection of privacy than that afforded in, say, sexual assault cases is needed.


  9. Should UKIP continue to have policies on sexual exploitation & paedophile gangs, and Islamic extremism? (Sections 23 and 25 of the 2018 Interim Manifesto: Policies for the People).

    Policies, yes.

    New laws, perhaps not, unless there is clear evidence there is a lacuna in existing laws.

Relationships Education was introduced in primary schools in England in September 2019 and will be compulsory in September 2020. A programme called “No Outsiders” has been used in some schools since April 2019 and has led to protests from parents.

  1. Do you agree that sexual orientation should be taught to primary school children?

    Not for one minute do I agree this should be taught to our young. The state has no right to interfere with the upbringing of our children in this manner. This curriculum is damaging to the natural development, we as human beings must be allowed to experience.

  2. Do you agree that gender identity should be taught to primary school children?

    Same as Question 1.

Sex is defined at conception, depending on the male sperm which carries an X or Y chromosome, so that the child is either XX (female) or XY (male). Other combinations exist but are very rare. Our chromosomes remain the same for life, from conception until death.

Gender is not so easy to define.

  1. Do you agree with one or more of the following?

    1. Gender is the same as sex and cannot be changed.

      I’m no scientist, but my definition is that Gender is the same as Sex and cannot be changed – Is this not how mother nature intended?

    2. Gender is a grammatical term that defines the pronoun to be used with a noun.

      No further comment

    3. Gender is subject to a mental and psychological process that allows us to identify as male, female, or anything else we like, regardless of our sex.

      No further comment

    4. Gender is none of the above (please specify what it might be).

      No further comment

  2. Do you agree that people who self-identify as a chosen gender should expect others to affirm their chosen gender, using the correct names and pronouns and consenting to the use of the chosen bathrooms and toilets, regardless of what they actually believe?

    In my world, a man is a He and a lady a She. Men & Ladies do not use the same public bathroom & toilets. Whilst I respect, every individuals’ rights to be themselves, we need social norms, as millennia of evolution has proven, in order to live in a free, safe, civilized society.

  3. During the reporting year 2009/10 a total of 97 children in the UK (40 girls and 57 boys) were referred by doctors for gender treatment. In 2017/18 the number had risen to 2519 (1,806 girls and 713 boys). This is an increase, during an 8-year period, of 4,410% for girls and 1,151% for boys.(1) Do you consider this to be the progress of science or do you think something has gone wrong?

    This is a real concerning trend, and I can only feel that this is due to parents allowing themselves to be led by the state rhetoric regarding Gender – We must also recognise that the parents of today have been through the State Interference Program themselves and are more likely to be persuaded by State Professionals to ignore the natural development of their off-spring. I am extremely thankful I grew up when I did – I was a natural tomboy, preferred climbing trees to playing with dolls, I dread to think what the state would be persuading my mum if I was young today….

  4. Do you agree that parents are the primary nurturers and educators of their children and should be allowed to pass on their values to their children in their own way, without interference from the State?

    I am a strong believer that the Parent is the Primary Nurturer of their children, but society seems to be ignoring the fact that the next generation need this nurturing. As state interference, depicted in Q1+2 illustrates, our parents are having their natural rights to provide this nurturing taken away, you could say that we have indoctrinated our parents enough for them to now believe “Nanny State knows best”.

  5. Do you believe that marriage is for life, to provide a secure environment for raising children and not to be dissolved lightly, or do you agree with divorce on demand (the so-called “no fault divorce”)?

    I do believe in the sanctity of marriage and that the vows taken are for life, being a divorcee myself and growing up in a broken family; I do however recognise that sometimes this isn’t always the case. I believe that the bedrock of a cohesive and peaceful society is the family unit; the state again has interfered to the point where we find marriage is yet another “throw away” item.

  6. There are currently 286 known abortion survivors in the world although the actual number is estimated to be much greater.(2) At what stage in their lives do they acquire rights, including the right to life?

    1. At conception;
    2. When a heartbeat can be detected;
    3. At birth;
    4. During childhood;
    5. When they become adults.

      See Question 9

  7. Should health professionals have the absolute right as a matter of conscience to refuse to participate in abortion, without penalty to career prospects or other adverse consequences?

    Questions 8 and 9 answered together:
    My personal view is the right to life is when a heartbeat can be detected, abortion is a very clear matter of conscience and no person, whatever their profession, should face penalty for acting on their conscience in this subject matter. I, myself, question the consciences of those who advocate the current pro-choice rhetoric.


  8. Would you be in favour of opening up the Family Courts to public scrutiny under the same rules of privacy that currently apply to sexual offence cases in the criminal courts?

    I think the initial concept to keeping these private was to protect the families concerned, it is very much a different world we live in today. There has been a concerted effort to break up The Family Unit over decades, as today’s topics of debate illustrate sinisterly well. It is important now for society to have the ability to scrutinize the State in family matters. Through alternative media channels I have seen personal accounts of parents caught up in a legal battle in these courts – It is terrifying, how much control state professionals have.

  9. Should UKIP continue to have policies on sexual exploitation & paedophile gangs, and Islamic extremism? (Sections 23 and 25 of the 2018 Interim Manifesto: Policies for the People).

    I am a proud advocate of our 2018 Interim Manifesto, I always find myself reminding “those who know best” this manifesto was put together after a survey of the whole membership, one that was well responded to. Sections 23 & 25 are two of our stronger points, and I fear that there are those who would wish us to lose this type of radical, ahead of the curve, policy in submission to the PC Mainstream expected norms.
