UKIP runs training academy in Horwich for prospective councillors

The Bolton News: Peter McGeehan Peter McGeehan

A UKIP training academy for aspiring councillors has been hailed a success by its organiser — and could be rolled out nationally.

Peter McGeehan, who is standing for election in Harper Green, organised the pilot masterclass to give aspiring politicians the inside track on what life is like on Bolton Council.

The sweet shop owner is a former Mayor of Horwich, was a Horwich town councillor for 12 years and also spent four years on Bolton Council representing Horwich North East while he was a member of the Liberal Democrats.

The 10 trainees undertook two hours of lessons for six weeks, including attending Bolton Council and Horwich Town Council meetings, before they received their certificates of completion from European Parliament candidate, Louise Bours, last week.

During a visit to Bolton she said: “Peter is a fantastic asset to UKIP. He has come up with this training programme for 10 people, who are all local people and standing in the local elections.

“It was showing them the mechanics of local government — so they are really well informed about the council and how it works. His programme is something we are looking to copy across the country.”

Mr McGeehan said he was delighted that UKIP was thinking of adopting his programme nationally.

He said: “The programme goes through every aspect of being a candidate — all about how to campaign, to how to keep a good relationship with the media, through to how to be cabinet member.

“We are looking at doing a similar course on UKIP policies, and also going to do a training course for prospective MPs.

“I’m quite pleased with how it has gone — it’s a pilot scheme so I am collecting feedback to see if there’s anything we can improve on.”

  • There are five people standing in the Harper Green by-election on December 19.

It has been called following the death of Cllr Margaret Clare in October. She had represented the ward for more than 20 years.

Peter McGeehan, aged 65, is standing for UKIP; Wendy Connor, a grandmother of five, will stand for the Liberal Democrats; Science teacher Robert Tyler is standing for the Conservatives and lives in Caldeck Drive in the ward; Asha Ali Ismail, aged 33, will stand for Labour, having previously stood to be a councillor in Bradshaw in 2012 and The Green Party candidate is Kathryn Sykes, aged 49, who lives in Parkfield Road, Great Lever.

Thus proving how good UKIP members are - it is a private club which close ranks which it questioned about - why is that???


I have credability. Under the BRITISH CONSTITUTION AND DEMOCRACY which has been around, and evolved for centuries, I am allowed to have a say and allowed to whether I vote or not!

Thomas, you really ought to strat reading and learning before commenting!

People who sit on the fence like you deserve no say whatever as you have decided to have no involvement and therefore cannot change anything at all. Give the space to someone who is........ 1930s Germany! That one stopped working long ago now change the record its worn out!!

Bring on the elections. Sure they will do relatively well in this part of Bolton, which has historically attracted the extreme right wing parties and groups.

I like your rhetoric, GCB. They actually haven't realised what you have said and are agreeing with you!!! Don't you just love Extremists ignorance.

Oh Thomas, if you want UKIP to win anything then you should be trying to win my vote rather than lose it as I have a voice and I can tell as many people as I want about you not wanting UKIP to gain mine or their votes.

Yes I may be a floating voter but its the like of me UKIP and any other political party has to try to win over to win any sort of elections and your attempt at my democratic right not to vote and as such n voice only disenfranchises me even more to your party, rather than making the links stronger for the one or more extra votes!!!

As I keep saying, you really ought to learn how to ply politics rather than being ignorant as you currently are!!!

I chose my democratic and British constitutional right to vote for no one is none of the parties rhetoric/policies suit the majority of my needs - and it has been like that for the last 3 British general elections! But because I chose not to vote does not mean I don't have a say - in fact I have a more of a say as Political Parties will WANT my vote for them to win elections!!!

You dont vote so you have no voice so what you write here on these comments means nothing. Very easy to be critical when you have no alliance to anyone or anything, all you do is become a winger with no ideas.

So you want UKIP to win?

How are they going to do that if they do not pick up any floating voter and voters who decide not to vote because they don't believe the politics of any party?

You are just pushing those voters away and thus UKIP or any other party will struggle to get voters voting for them

You really ought to learn about politics as every post you make about me not voting is just showing yourself up.

What have you changed in Bolton, being aligned to UKIP? NOTHING

What have I done, saved bus routes, campaigning and getting responses with regards to the railways. People agreeing with me on many issues regarding Bolton. Actually in contact with councillors and MP's. Had success with talking to management at Northern with regards to Bolton Station. I have ideas and I fight for the ideas to get them implemented fully or t the best ability as much as possible

You say I have no voice because I don't vote - guess what I do and I am successful in doing it.

Again I ask, what have you done successfully either through you aligned party of individually to get something improved?

One other question - if there were only the Liberals and the Conservatives you could only ever vote for - who would you vote for, and why?
