Euro Elections - UKIP manifesto

Gazette Series: Euro Elections - UKIP manifesto Euro Elections - UKIP manifesto

IT’S time to decide. We don’t need to wait until 2017 to have a referendum: let’s have one right now.

Use the European Elections on Thursday, May 22 to tell them what you think about the EU.

It’s time for the truth.

A lot of lies have been told about the EU.

We’re frequently told that we’ll lose three million jobs if we leave – a shameless lie.

No sensible commentator has ever predicted this, because the EU countries have far more to lose by interfering with our trade with them, than we do.

We’re more likely to gain jobs.

A few big businessmen are regularly wheeled out to say they want to stay in.

But when the EU is geared to help big businesses and prevent small ones from challenging them, that’s not surprising.

It’s our 4.8 million smaller businesses that suffer from the burden of EU laws and regulations.

They say our car industries will suffer if we leave: yet the EU sells us more cars than we do them – by up to 800,000 a year.

They won’t put that at risk by hampering our manufacturers.

They say the EU is the future, and that we couldn’t survive outside it but we’re the world’s sixth largest economy.

And while the European Union’s share of world trade is shrinking, our prospects are very good indeed.

What UKIP will do for you: With your help, we’ll continue to work for the UK’s withdrawal from the big political project that is the EU .

The project, as a long-serving commissioner said recently, to create a United States of Europe.

With your help, we’ll succeed.

In the meantime, your UKIP MEPs will continue to go to Brussels and Strasbourg with a mission unlike that of any other party.

We don’t go there to make the EU better, more powerful and help it pass more laws.

We go there to find out what it’s up to and let you know.

Some of us spend a good deal of time there, unfortunately, making sure we know what they’re cooking up, creating an ‘Opposition’ and voting against the EU’s encroachment on our democracy.

Others spend more time back here, spreading the word and campaigning to get us out.

All UKIP MEPs, though, have one over-riding goal: to make ourselves redundant, by getting Britain out, and returning to the UK the power to govern ourselves.

We want our country back.

Don’t you?

I quite agree - but it isn't just business regulation that stifles us; it's the potential loss of our legal system. Anyone interested in learning more about the infamous 'European Arrest Warrant' & how our legal system is being challenged by a much less democratic European version should watch this short film:

It seems to me that the youtube link below is more likely to show how we can prosper under our newly elected representatives.

I think that its a shame that William (The Earl of) Dartmouth doesn't use his noble title. Having a title is proof that he was born to rule over us.

UKIP lie and scaremonger - their support comes from people frightened of something - Europe, immigrants, the 'other'.

They are also liars. Farage claims that 75% of our laws are made in Brussels - a total lie - 7% of primary legislation comes from the EU.

In addition, Farage claimed that we would be overrun by millions of Romanians and Bulgarians - again another lie.

UKIP have constantly argued that immigrants are draining our NHS of resources - yet more lies. Research by the Nuffield Trust has found that most immigrants are young, fit and looking for work, therefore far less likely to use health services. Our NHS is under strain because we have an ageing population and spending cuts - UKIP's answer is to privatise the NHS. Healthcare if you can afford it.

And UKIP are strangely silent about the 2 million Brits who live, work or have retired to Europe. If we leave the EU and send back EU citizens, are we going to be that surprised if they reciprocate - it's a two way street.

Our biggest trading partner is the EU. To step outside of that trading bloc off the back of UKIP lies is a very stupid thing to do.
