THE deputy leader of UKIP Paul Nuttall is set to attend a public meeting in Bolton tonight (Monday, March 24).

The north west MEP will be speaking alongside by prospective Euro MP Amjad Bashir, the party spokesman for small and medium size businesses, at the event at Bolton Cricket Club.

Mr Nuttall said: “This is a great opportunity for people to come along and find out just why UKIP is the fastest growing political party in the country."

“The political elite living in the Westminster bubble are totally out of touch with the real world, where people struggle to make ends meet.

“We in UKIP are fully grounded and understand the concerns of people faced with the sometimes harsh realities of life. And that is one of reasons why voters are coming over to us in droves."

The meeting takes place at Bolton Cricket Club in Green Lane, Bolton BL3 2JB, starting at 7.30pm. It is free to attend.
