Wokingham UKIP Talks Defence
The team of spokesmen appointed by UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall are taking the opportunity to understand the views and harvest the knowledge in certain subjects which is held within the UKIP membership.
The event was held at the Holiday Inn, Reading and many of those taking part were ex-servicemen and women from all three military forces with vast experience from a range of roles in many different theatres of action.
Bill was introduced by Wokingham UKIP Chairman Phil Ray who reminded us all of the military connections around the local community from the Atomic Weapons Establishment in Aldermaston, to the Military Academy at Sandhurst, to the Household Cavalry and Coldstream Guards at Windsor and the various Battalions at Aldershot.
Productive and informative discussions took place around the state of the UK’s military; Trident missile defence; battlefield resources; new Naval ships and aircraft; and military veterans amongst many others.
Bill assured those present that all their input was valuable and encouraged them to continue to communicate their views and knowledge to ensure that UKIP Defence policy is appropriate, representative and pertinent.
A valuable evening and hopefully the first of many on different subjects.
