    James_Carver.jpegUKIP West Midlands MEP James Carver has hit out over a government propaganda “blitz” about the forthcoming EU referendum.

    “Not content with spending £9 million of taxpayers money on leaflets, arguing for Britain to remain in the EU, and having them delivered to every household in the land, they are using government websites for the same end.

    “Anyone who goes to the GOV.UK on-line pages for information is faced with a banner advert announcing that there is to be an EU referendum and pointing out how to register to vote,” said Mr Carver.

    “I am all in favour of everyone exercising their right to vote but the government should not be abusing their powers by trying to influence the outcome of this referendum.

  • Farage and Boris clear favourites to represent Leave in TV debates

    Posted on May 03

    Nigel_Farage.jpegA new poll released now exclusively by Survation has made it clear that when it comes to the big set piece TV EU Referendum debates, Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage are the public's clear favourites to represent the Leave campaign.

    The polling (sample size 1400) asks which two politicians the public would like to see take part for the leave side in the big BBC Wembley EU Referendum Debate on June 21st. Boris Johnson has 61% naming him in their top two and Nigel Farage has 41% naming him in their top two. No other politician named in the poll comes close to the levels of public support that Nigel and Boris receive to head the debates on behalf of the leave campaign.

    UKIP Chairman Steve Crowther said, "This polling shows that the public recognise the titanic efforts of Nigel Farage and UKIP in getting this referendum. Now the public want him to be one of the two representatives in the big Wembley debate. The idea that Nigel and UKIP would not be represented in that debate, despite receiving nearly 4 million votes last year, winning the European Elections in 2014, currently polling 20% and being the only party advocating the leave vote in this referendum would be ludicrous.

  • EU Army spells the end of UK Sovereignty

    Posted on May 03

    Mike_Hookem.jpegUKIP Defence Spokesman, Mike Hookem MEP has blasted EU plans revealed in the Financial Times to push ahead with the “ultimate plan” for an EU army saying, “to lose control of our army to the EU would be the end of sovereignty in the UK.”
    Mr Hookem spoke out after the Financial Times published leaked documents that spelled out how the EU commission planned “further integration” of Europe’s armed forces to bring the “patchwork of army’s in Europe” under one command, which has been drawn up at Germany’s insistence.
    Speaking from Brussels, Mr Hookem said, “When you look at the command structures, logistics and forces already under EU command, it comes as no shock the EU commission has bowed to German demands for a combined EU army. While we have had the EU High Command, and many other staff structures for many years, we have seen a determined push towards real assets coming directly under EU command since Jean-Claude Junker became president.”

  • Something is rotten in our justice system to put criminals above Afghan interpreters

    Posted on May 02

    Mike_Hookem.jpgUKIP Defence Spokesman Mike Hookem has blasted the government following the apparent suicide of an Afghan interpreter who worked with the British Army in Helmand saying "something is rotten in our justice system."

    The former soldier, who has been calling for interpreters who are living under a death sentence from Islamic extremists in their home country to have their asylum cases fast tracked, said "how dare we put criminals above people who have shown their loyalty to this country."

    Back in August last year Mr Hookem called for the interpreters who worked in Helmand to be given the same rights as "those already in place for their Iraqi colleagues" after a man called Popal was murdered.
