Mrs Atkinson said her campaign was going well.
She said: “People are angry. They feel conned by the Lib Dem and Conservative parties.
“They want to know why they can’t get an appointment with their GP. They want to know why their greenfields must be built on. They look at the EU’s open-door immigration policy and then they know the answer.”
Mrs Atkinson, whose son is at Maidstone Grammar School, is number two on her party’s list of candidates for the South East.
Unlike our own elections, the elections for the European Parliament are decided via a form of proportional representation.
Mrs Atkinson was joined in Maidstone by some of the local UKIP party members who were campaigning for the Maidstone Borough Council elections, which happen on the same day, Thursday, May 22.
For the first time, UKIP is fielding a candidate in every ward.
