Ukip says it would bring back smoking in pubs, sell off Cardiff Airport, repeal the smacking ban, scrap laws requiring services to be provided in English and Welsh and stop all sex education in primary schools. Policies to help asylum seekers and refugees would also be axed and a referendum held on abolishing the Senedd. Its manifesto for the election on May 6 attacks a current Welsh Government minister as a "Bossyboots" with a woke agenda, claims that there are "jobs-for-the-boyos" and says decisions taken in Welsh politics are the same as North Korea. The party had seven representatives at the start of the fifth Welsh Parliament in 2016 but ended the term with just Neil Hamilton after a series of arguments and splits. The party's 34-page manifesto also pledges to end lockdown measures and restrictions immediately. Cardiff Airport would be sold "immediately" and there would be a regional referendum on the M4 relief road which the party would back. The smoking ban would be lifted so landlords could create smoking rooms. The document also criticises movements like Black Lives Matter. It says "extreme political groups, like Black Lives Matter, mask their true intentions with social justice. But in reality, they are self-professed Marxists, who want to smash capitalism and defund the police." The document also refers to the education minister a "bossyboots" and says that the health minister had followed "the North Korean model of democratic control". Devolution Ukip says it would offer an immediate referendum to scrap the Senedd saying "Westminster is perfectly capable of making legislation specific to Wales". "UKIP’s vision is to give power to the people and not revert to the arrogant out-of-control politician-driven system at Westminster that was there before." It says it wants to give more powers over the NHS and education. "The people who use the NHS get no say in how their local NHS is run even though it is entirely funded by their taxes. If wrong choices are made, no-one is held to account, however great the disaster. "There was limited participation of patients via Community Health Councils (CHCs) in each NHS area. But even that has now been abolished by a centralising Welsh Labour Government which always thinks it knows what’s best for people they see and treat as ignorant peasants - the voters. "They abolished the local CHCs and replaced them with one CHC for the whole of Wales, appointed by the Minister in Cardiff. This is the North Korean model of democratic control." It says scrapping the Senedd would save £65m a year. "Not to mention the huge infrastructure of jobs-for-the-boyos created by Welsh Labour which hangs like an entangling net over the Welsh economy. Useless quangos, Commissions, ‘Third Sector’ hangers-on and the rest of the taxpayer-funded support for the Leftist Establishment which reinforces Wales culture of dependency and decline. Education UKIP wants ‘free schools’ to be developed, as it claims has happened in England. "Schools need to be de-politicised," it says. "Parents should be given the democratic levers to ensure that they decide what sort of schooling their children get, not politicians with their own agenda whether it be ‘woke’ obsessions like ‘racism’ or linguistic authoritarianism. School boards should be elected, with Head teachers and others publicly answerable to those whom schools serve." The manifesto criticises education minister Kirsty Williams. "Anyone opposing her ‘woke’ agenda (e.g. prioritising ‘Black history’ over Welsh history or making sex education compulsory in primary schools against parents’ wishes) gets short shrift. "Brecon and Radnor’s bossyboots Senedd Member doesn’t think she knows best; she knows she does. Anyone objecting is ignored or insulted as backward and ignorant."

The manifesto says that "parents should have the overriding influence over their children’s upbringing. However, the Senedd has taken unprecedented steps to interfere with how we raise our children by making lessons on relationships, sex and religion mandatory for all primary and secondary schoolchildren throughout Wales. UKIP believes that the sexualisation of children must stop now." It would therefore allow parents to withdraw children from RSE classes and end the teaching of sex education in all primary schools. They would remove tuition fees for all UK domiciled undergraduates taking degrees in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine so long as they continue working in the UK. Teachers paperwork would be reduced and teacher training courses would be "radically overhauled". Immigration The party says it will reduce net-migration to below 10,000 a year and limit the number of migrants who are awarded the right to settle in the UK. You could only get access public housing or benefits if you had paid tax for five years. The party also pledges to reverse a new decision that gives voting rights to 33,000 foreign nationals in Senedd elections. Instead, it would "make citizenship obtainable for migrants once they have worked in the UK for 10 continuous years and have fully integrated into society". Health and social care The party promises to ensure "families are reunited with loved ones in care homes" by "proportionately assessing" the risk in care homes. It also promises a recovery plan and to "ensure the Welsh NHS detects cancer, or gives an ‘all-clear’, within 28 days of referral." There would be no cap on NHS pay rises with funding "redirected from paying pointless bureaucrats and management consultants". It would oppose introducing vaccine passports. The manifesto says the party would review the use of the NHS for private practice, assign a cancer nurse to everyone who is given a cancer diagnosis and also says it would Introduce formal and comprehensive data collection on the relative success of talking therapies as compared to drug based treatment. Locally elected health boards would be introduced, senior management and adviser pay would be capped. The health boards would be cut from 18-20 members to no more than 11. The party would "dramatically increase the number of training places for British doctors, nurses and paramedics" and "prioritise our own NHS workers rather than relying on recruiting medical staff from abroad or paying extortionate agency costs". Transport Ukip promises to support a regional referendum on the M4 relief road and support the building of the road. It supports electrification of the rail line to Swansea. It says it will sell Cardiff Airport "immediately". Environment The maximum sentences for animal cruelty would be increased and all non-stun slaughter in slaughterhouses banned. It would overturn Labour's decision to designate Wales a Nitrate Vulnerable Zone and launch a new Bovine TB eradication programme. On fishing, it says that fishermen were "betrayed" in the Brexit deal and says that Ukip would "Take full control of the UK’s entitled Exclusive Economic Zone with exclusive access for British boats within 12 miles of the coast". It would scrap the Climate Change Act (2008), "take the UK out of the Paris Climate Agreement" and invest in nuclear energy. Small nuclear power plants would be set up. Taxpayer subsidies would be removed from "unprofitable wind and solar schemes". Welsh Language "More British taxpayer’s money has been spent per head of the population in Wales on the Welsh language by successive governments, both at Westminster and in Cardiff Bay, than on any other minority language in Europe. The preservation and promotion of the Welsh language is, however, dependent on the goodwill of the 80% plus of the people of Wales who do not speak Welsh. That’s why UKIP believes in fair play for both Welsh and non-Welsh speakers." Ukip would remove the statutory requirement of the Welsh Language Act 2011 which means councils have to provide bilingual services thus saving "millions". "Scrap the discriminatory and unfair policy pursued by several local authorities in Wales of employing only Welsh speakers. "We need the best people for any given job, regardless whether they are Welsh speakers or not," the manifesto says. "Support the right of every home owner to call their property by whatever name they wish – be it English or Welsh." The Welsh Language Commissioner's job would be scrapped. Parents could exempt their children from Welsh language lessons from the age 14. There would also be a review of funding to the Welsh Arts Council and Welsh Books Council. it also pledges: "Divert some of the millions of pounds saved by abolishing the legal requirements of the Senedd and local authorities on forcibly imposing the Welsh language on people, into a concerted campaign to promote voluntary Welsh learner classes throughout Wales. Family The "smacking ban" would be repealed. They also say that education would be "de-politicised". "The curriculum should focus on what matters – education. Increasingly, classes for some of our youngest children have focused on deeply political issues and have sought to indoctrinate schoolchildren. In 2018, the Senedd consulted children as young as seven on their views on Brexit and, more recently, dedicated entire school days to campaigns promoted by extreme political organisations like ‘Black Lives Matter’ and ‘Extinction Rebellion’." Veterans Affordable rent houses would be made available for homeless veterans, all service personnel working overseas would be exempt from income tax. They would also lobby "an end to the grotesque show trials of veterans who served in Northern Ireland". Culture Ukip pledges to "defend free speech and fight back against cancel culture". It says it would defund the BBC (although it's not clear what funding it is referring to) and scrap the Welsh Government's audit of statues and street names. The smoking ban in Welsh pubs would be lifted allowing landlords to create ventilated smoking rooms. It says: "When Senedd politicians took the knee in “solidarity” with Black Lives Matter, UKIP remained standing. Politicians, propped up by the Media Establishment, now side with those who seek to erase Wales’s past and eradicate British values. They pursue an anti-British agenda, grounded in a victim-based hierarchy of society, placing virtue in people’s physical identity rather than the measure of their character or ability."
