UK: Stoke by-election win would be 'game, set and match Brexit' - UKIP leader

United Kingdom, Stoke-on-Trent
February 13, 2017 at 20:29 GMT +00:00 · Published

UKIP leader Paul Nuttall claimed that a win for his party in the Stoke-on-Trent by-election would mean "game, set and match for Brexit," speaking at a press conference in the city on Monday.

Nuttall stressed that "it is so important that we have a strong electorally viable UKIP to hold the government’s feet to the fire and ensure that we get real clean Brexit."

UKIP Brexit spokesperson Gerard Batten added that "[UK Prime Minister] Mrs May was a remainer. Had Remain won in the referendum she would be telling us it was the best thing for us and everything is going to be wonderful in the EU."

Stoke voted 69.4 percent to leave in the EU referendum on June 23. Nuttall is running to be elected to the House of Commons in the Stoke-on-Trent Central by-election on February 23 and will go up against Labour's Gareth Snell.
