The Home Secretary visited Hertsmere last week to outline current and future plans on terrorism and how to reduce immigration.

Theresa May MP spoke at a Conservative party dinner last Tuesday.

After a 15-minute speech outlining plans for combating terrorism and reducing immigration, the Home Secretary took questions from the guests.

A vote of thanks was given by Hertsmere MP, James Clappison.

Council leader and local ward member Morris Bright said afterwards: "It was great to be able to welcome such a senior member of the Government to Hertsmere and hear first-hand of the important work being done to keep our country safe."

Phil Cox - UKIP Mayoral candidate for Watford says...

What are her plans to control immigration? Everyone knows that members of the EU CANNOT control immigration from the EU (450 million people allowed to turn up whenever they feel like it).

In the days before the EU the government were able to do more than just cross their fingers, Mrs May. That's one of the reasons why we need to leave the EU.

Until then, any government plans to control immigration are a bit like putting up a turnstile on the beach. It simply will not work.

We need managed immigration, like other independent countries have. It's not racist, it's just sensible to manage immigration.

As Mayor of Watford, what would you do about immigration?

What use is a one policy nationalist party at local level?

Just asking like.

A Ukip Mayor and council in Watford would be a huge improvement on the current LibDems, both in attitude to the residents (we care and we listen) and our policies.

That's why so many people are voting Ukip.

This is going to be a very good year for Ukip and a very bad year for the LibDems.

Have you seen how arrogant our Mayor Dorothy Thornhill is towards the residents? I have been shocked by what people have been telling me. It's no wonder the LibDems are so worried - finally there is a credible alternative to the LibDems in Watford.

No UK government can restrict immigration from other EU nations. It's impossible under laws and treaties we (our Labour, Conservative governments) have willingly signed up to.

To put that into perspective, for each and every man woman and child currently in this country, we have agreed that 6 more can come here from the EU.

I am not suggesting for a moment that our population will be swamped by a factor of 6 of EU migrants, after all there are other superb countries for people to live in, but it does clearly illustrate the scale of the problem facing this country as members of the EU.

The only solution? Leave the EU. There is no other solution available.

What parties are in favour of leaving the EU? Only Ukip.

The choice is clear on this issue.

One other point that has not been raised. The government is desperate to make it look like they are doing something about immigration even though they can't do anything about EU immigration. The result is they will be cracking down too hard on immigration from non-EU countries where we do still have control of our borders.

Why don't we leave the EU, regain control of our borders and then manage immigration from the whole world? Wouldn't that be far more sensible?

What a childlike world you live in Mr Cox. All our problems seem to start and end with membership of the EU. If only life was that simple. Once you have achieved your utopian dream what then?

1) Repatriate all the UK citizens working and living in the EU as EU conduct a “tit for tat” exercise?

2) Mass unemployment due to companies moving to be within the EU?

3) Run on the pound due to lack of city confidence in our currency?

4) Lack of influence in the world due to an inability to speak with a collective European voice?

5) A UKIP government seen as a toxic right wing cabal?

6) In leaving Europe we have alienated our neighbours?

7) Interest rates rise to record highs due to uncertainty in the city over UKIP policy?

Doesn't answer the questions though does it.
What are your policies for Watford? Slagging off the Lib Dems isn't an answer....

"We care and we listen" is "We haven't got a clue" put through a £0.69 (Eur1) PR app.

Who would you care about? If you got a letter from someone with a funny, foreign sounding name would that be treated the same as one from Gladys Protheroe?

Just interested.

I do agree before the residents of Watford even start to take you seriously as a Mayoral candidate we need to have some idea of what you stand for.

The only policy I have come across from you is the “office of common sense” which you want to set up in the town hall.

None of the above because they are not true.

Some of them are the reverse of the truth.

After Nigel has wiped the floor with Nick Clegg in the EU debates I hope everyone knows the truth about the EU and the benefits of our leaving it.

I would be happy to debate any of the points with you or Dotty but I will let Nigel have his day first. It's not long to wait.

For your information

1. Unknown - subject to negotiation. Unlikely to be true.
2. Not likely at all. Fuller employment is more likely after a short period of adjustment.
3. No reason for that. We already have a better credit rating than the EU since we said we might leave. Our rating went up, the EU went down. The markets have already spoken.
4. Joke! We are member of WTO, G7, Nato, UN Security Council (permanent), Head of Commonwealth, 6th largest economy in the world. Need I go on?
5. Is this another joke? It's certainly untrue.
6. By treaty the EU must negotiate trade deals with UK when we leave. As for alienating our neighbours, we are simply showing them where the exit door is. They will most likely be not far behind us once the EU illusion is shattered. There is absolutely no reason for any ill-will between nations of the EU and the UK. nor the EU and the UK. It's in their interest to keep us sweet as they get a lot of trade from us, something they would not wish to threaten.
7. Completely wrong.

It's a Ukip thing, we know how bad being a member of the EU is for the UK.

I am only posting under one name (unlike some elected people at the council) and so my local and national comments come under the same name.

They are all relevant to the problems this country faces.

We are revamping our local Ukip website to reflect the local elections and that will have our local policies on it shortly.

Yes they come under Phil Cox - UKIP Mayoral candidate for Watford and all we get is national comments.

You are not standing on a national platform you are standing to become the Mayor of a small Borough Council. So please let’s have at least the occasional comment about what you intend to do if the good people of Watford elect you as Mayor.

Your visibility as a candidate is non-existent at a local level. I have yet to see any leaflets from you and I certainly haven’t seen you involved in any local issue.

Even you must realise by posting incessantly on here you are reaching less than 1% of the electorate (at best).
