Cancer expert Professor Angus Dalgleish to stand for UKIP in Sutton and Cheam

Sutton Guardian: Professor Angus Dalgleish Professor Angus Dalgleish

A professor specialising in cancer and HIV research has been selected to stand for UKIP in Sutton and Cheam.

Professor Angus Dalgleish, who is based at St George's Hospital in Tooting, said he "cannot stand idly by" while the UK is still involved in the European Union and thinks continued involvement with the continent will leave the country in a worse state than when he was young.

Prof Dalgleish, 64, was adopted as candidate for the area after a hustings event where he was deemed the best candidate and he will now stand against incumbent MP Paul Burstow in 2015.

He said: "I am delighted to be chosen as the  UKIP Candidate for Cheam and Sutton. I decided to stand as it has become increasingly obvious that all the problems that I encounter both professionally and locally stem from ill thought through EU directives which are strangling this countries ability to function effectively.

"I cannot stand idly by and hand my country over to the next generation in a much worse state than it was when I was young."

Prof Dalgleish has worked as a consultant physician specialising in cancer medicine for over 25 years and is the principal of the Cancer Vaccine Institute.

Do voters want a referendum on Europe?

The only way to get one is for there to be a Conservative majority in Parliament. That means this constituency, Sutton & Cheam, needs to elect Paul Scully (Conservative) to parliament rather than the current Lib Dem who not only wants to stop Britain from having a referendum but actually wants even more integration with Europe.

Ukip can not win in Sutton and Cheam, however a vote for Ukip might mean one less vote for Paul Scully, the only winable candidate who will fight for a referendum (he actually voted for the referendum party once), making it more likely that the Liberal Democrats will win again. Of course every Lib Dem in parliament will be working hard to make sure that Britain never has the chance to have a say on Europe and will be doing everything they can to ensure Europe has as much control over Britain as possible.

A Conservative vote = Referendum
A Ukip Vote = No Referendum (because it leads to Lib Dems in control).

A Conservative majority in Parliament guarantees nothing with Dave in control, firstly the Tories have got almost nil chance of winning a workable majority, secondly Dave has done absolutely zilch about either repatriating powers or positioning himself in a good position to do so, in fact he was quoted in a Spanish interview as saying he would never allow a referendum whatever happens, so there you have it,a sham promise from a liar & one time Eurosceptic, the man is nothing but a con merchant who's obviously taken in many in his party who have decided to remain like sheep in thrall to him!

As a member of the Tory Party, I can tell you that almost every other member I know is Eurosceptic. The only CON here is Ukip's portrayal of the Conservatives in order to ensure that Ed Milliband gets into No 10, guaranteeing there will be no referendum prior to 2020.

The Conservatives tried to get it into law that their must be a referendum by the end of 2017. They even managed to steer this through the House of Commons but then Labour and the Lib Dems joined forces to thwart this in the Lords.

You talk about facing reality but then ignore the facts. Only a vote for the Conservatives will lead to a referendum. Anything else will lead to Labour and the Lib Dems in power, eagerly signing anything that Brussels puts in front of them.

1. If the Conservatives can win seats like this in Sutton, they have very good chance of winning a workable majority.
2. Dave has of course started the difficult process of repatriating powers. A referendum before the end of 2017 will allow us to just get out regardless of whether any powers are repatriated or not.
3. I tried to find this mythical Spanish interview where Dave supposedly says he would 'never allow a referendum' with no luck. Could you please either provide a direct reference or stop believing this fairy story.

Again is seems the only people being conned are those who have listened to the propaganda coming out of Ukip. Nigel Farage has had a taste of power and will say anything to keep it, even if that means handing the keys of No 10 to Labour and the Lib Dems who want even closer ties to Europe and more immigration.

I used to vote Conservative until I woke up and realised that they have been lying to and deceiving the UK public about the EU for well over 40 years. Starting with Ted Heath's assertion that there will be NO loss of sovereignty if we joined the EEC! Now 80% of our laws are made outside our elected "parliament" in Westminster. So much for Ted Heath's lies.

This deceit has been perpetuated by the Tory Party EVER since. Cameron gave us a "cast iron" guarantee for a referendum, but that was before the last election. Nick Clegg also promised us a referendum but they have both lied to us as they obviously had NO intention of giving us a say in who actually governs our country.

To put it bluntly I am amazed that anyone can even consider voting for anyone who stands for a party that believes that giving 29 million people (most of whom do not speak English) the legal right to come and live here in ONE DAY! The stupidity of this is mind blowing.

The only hope for our country, our children and grand children is to get a government, repeal the 1972 Act and get out of the EU as fast as possible. The only way that will happen is if everybody votes UKIP in 2015.

Everybody isn't going to vote Ukip. Many people will vote Labour, many Conservative and some Lib Dem, Greens etc.) The only way to stop Labour and the Lib Dems pulling us further into the EU trap is to vote for the only party which can actually deliver a referendum on Europe (The Conservatives). Gordon Brown signed the treaty you refer to (Lisbon). That was the treaty that Cameron gave us a "cast iron" guarantee for a referendum on - provided it had not already been signed. Ukip likes to forget that last bit. We can not unsign a treaty but we can have a referendum on our continued membership of the EU. But only voting Conservative will allow it to happen. Everybody isn't going to vote Ukip, but if those thinking about it votes Conservative, they will get the referendum that only the Conservatives can and will deliver.

Fortunately you are wrong. The Conservatives will allow the people to decide, if they choose, to get us out of the EU. Ukip will lie, lie and lie again to convince you that Ukip is somehow more trustworthy than other political parties and that the Conservatives are somehow the same as Labour and the Lib Dems. Cameron has of course not "already pledged to stay in the EU" (another lie by Ukip).

Thank you Michael. If anyone believes Cameron and the Conservative Party are not pulling the wool over your eyes then let me remind them that even Nigel Lawson said that he was when Cameron claimed that he would repatriate powers back from the EU.
In an article in the TIMES Nigel Lawson said:"I have no doubt that any changes that Mr Cameron — or, for that matter, Ed Milliband — is able to secure will be (equally) inconsequential. The theology of the acquis communautaire, the principle that any powers ceded by the member states to the EU are ceded irrevocably,is Absolute. It is the rock on which theUnion is built, and — through the so-called Passerelle Clause of the Lisbon Treaty — effectively an explicit part of the EU constitution".

Hence this claim by Cameron was typical Conservative Party spin to deceive the public as even he must have known it was a non-starter..

Regardless of whether any powers are repatriated or not, surely a referendum delivered by the Conservatives would be better than further powers ceded to Brussels and more immigration under a Labour / Lib Dem administration - which is what a Ukip vote would lead to.

Personally I think that the real threat that the UK will pull out is the only thing that will make the other EU countries budge on repatriation of powers. If they still won't, then we can vote to leave nevertheless. But only with a Conservative Government and the referendum that only a Conservative Government will give the people.

First of all without a majority in the House of Commons there is nothing Cameron can get into law without the support of the Lib Dems or other parties. The Lib Dems campaigned for a referendum because they thought it would result in us staying in and putting the question to bed but as soon as they realised it could actually result in us leaving they changed their tune. So there is no way Cameron could actually give us a referendum in this parliament without that majority.

Having spent most weekends talking to people on the doorstep (not just people I know) I can report that only a very small minority of people are thinking of voting Ukip. Nowhere near enough to win anything but perhaps enough to allow Labour or the Lib Dems to win. Most people who want a referendum realise that only a Conservative vote can deliver one.

Blackmail?! No, just simple facts and mathematics. If your want to show your anger but don't really want to do anything about the problem then vote Ukip. If you actually want a referendum then the only answer is to vote Conservative.

Nowhere near enough to win anything but perhaps enough to allow Labour or the Lib Dems to win. Most people who want a referendum realise that only a Conservative vote can deliver one. Blackmail?! No, just simple facts and mathematics. If your want to show your anger but don't really want to do anything about the problem then vote Ukip. If you actually want a referendum then the only answer is to vote Conservative. Simon Densley

Why should anyone with any intelligence at all vote for a party that keeps deceiving them. The Conservatives and Lib Dems BOTH promised to hold a referendum so they were both duty bound to give us one. Typically, the Conservatives are trying to blame the Lib Dems when Cameron should have forced the issue and threatened them with another election if they did not hold their promise.

There is another point to be made here. No party (except UKIP) can reasonably issue a manifesto. As 80% of our laws are imposed on us by un-elected bureaucrats in Brussels no party in Westminster has any say at all about the legislative programme A UKIP government can honour its manifesto as it will get us out of the EU and be able to pass laws that honour its obligations.

The political establishment is going to get a shock in the next 2 years. They underestimate how fed up people are with the constant lies and scandals. I have never met so many people who were pretty dis-interested in politics, but now say that they are going to vote UKIP in the next general election. I don't like this talk of tactical voting. Don't vote for them because that lets the other party in etc. It's not really in the spirit of democracy is it. People should vote for who they think is right. If people vote for UKIP and Labour get in then so be it. Either way the problems get sorted out. UKIP will take us out of Europe and give us our borders back etc and Labour will finish the job they started which is the destruction of this country at its very core. If that happens then eventually there will be civil war and we will either win or lose. If we lose then the non-brainwashed English/Welsh/Scotti
sh people will be gone and that will be that and none of this will matter. Tories, Labour, Liberal, all brainwashed, all neo-liberal, all liars, all corrupt, all traitors, all full of weirdos. The Conservatives could have kept power forever after the chaos and utter failure of Labour over 13 years, but they have squandered their chance while in office. If they'd of really promised a referendum on Europe before the last election, that had no wriggle room to get out of it as they eventually did, then the Tories would have got a huge majority and had power all to themselves and given us the referendum. The truth is that Dave and Co. are just as pro Europe as Tony, Gorden and Ed were/are. That is why they have to go and Ukip need to win enough seats to at least have a say/form part of a coalition etc.

Well said Greenbrown. I entirely agree with you. The frightening thing is that the Conservatives apparently firmly believe that lying to the public and deceiving them is acceptable if it ensures that they get into power.

For example when I proved that Cameron's claim that he would repatriate powers from the EU was a deliberate and cynical ploy to deceive the population Simon Densley's response was to simply dismiss it by saying "Regardless of whether any powers are repatriated or not,.....". In other words it did not matter that the Conservative Party had perpetrated a massive scam which could not work. It was all part of their political game to stay in power at any cost.

Unfortunately too many Tory dinosaurs will still vote for them regardless. UKIP therefore needs all the support from good honest people of all parties to get into government. Only then will we get a referendum to get out of the EU and change our lives for the better.
