Dangerous precedent of interference in UK democratic process set by European court ruling says UKIP's Home Affairs and Justice Spokesman Diane James MEPPosted on October 06
"This ruling is a toe in the door for the ECJ to have say over domestic elections, and is setting a dangerous precedent European level interference into the democratic process. What we have seen with this ruling is it removes blanket bans on all crimes so therefore opens up the legislation to 'wriggle room'. This is due to the partial ban statues of this legislation. Prisoners’ rights should be something that lies solely with nation states.Continue reading...

Steven Woolfe, UKIP Migration Spokesman, responds to the Home Secretary's speech: "The Conservative Party's message about the need for controlled immigration at their conference is almost laughable. While both The Prime Minister and Theresa May echo UKIP almost verbatim in their rhetoric, it is important to bear in mind that this is the second term under the Conservatives, with May as Home Secretary and Cameron as leader and their government has broken all previous records on net migration and asylum into the UK.
"The Home Secretary needs to explain why it has taken her so long to set up full review of the UK asylum system when she has presided over the collapse of it for the past 6 years. So many of the initiatives that Theresa May mentioned in her speech today will be subject to future rulings of the European court as the human tights industry fight sensible changes every step of the way.Continue reading...

In a chillingly revealing statement, Home Office Minister Karen Bradley has laid bare how the Government uses the European Institutions to undermine National democracy.
Speaking at a fringe meeting at the Conservative conference she boasted, “When I’ve sat down with my counterparts and ministers from European countries and talked about passenger name records it’s quite clear that at a government level in all these countries they also want passenger name records but they cannot get them through their national parliaments,”
“They cannot get something like passenger name records through their national parliaments. So they say to us – can you please help us get it through at the European level? One of our MEPs, Timothy Kirkhope, is pushing passenger name records through the European Parliament as we speak.”
UKIP's Gerard Batten MEP responded. “It’s the transparent contempt for Parliamentary democracy that shines through. Now we have a Government Minister boasting about how Conservative MEPs are pimped out to do other Governments' bidding.”Continue reading...

David McNarry MLA, UKIP Leader in Northern Ireland, has condemned suggestions by the Taxpayer’s Alliance at a fringe meeting in the Tory Party conference to cut pensioner’s benefits: "To suggest that the government should exploit the current disarray of the Labour Party to make savage cuts to pensioner benefits and then make the suggestion that pensioners would ‘forget’ who had cut their benefits by the time of the next election, is deeply offensive to millions of people in this country. It is the language of condescension and contempt and it should have no part in political debate.
"The Taxpayer’s Alliance who hosted this fringe group meeting at the Conservative Party conference where these views were reportedly put forward by Taxpayer’s Alliance Research Director, Alex Wild, should be ashamed of themselves. Liam Fox MP, the senior Conservative MP who was the keynote speaker at the event, should dissociate himself from these comments immediately."Continue reading...
