UKIP has warned today of the threat of the EU 'subverting' British education as Universities UK comes out against the UK leaving the European Union.
Deputy Leader Paul Nuttall, a former university lecturer, has also highlighted the role of Monnet Professors, academics selected and funded by the EU to promote EU integration. He argues that the payment of university teaching staff to promote EU ideals in European Universities amounts to the erosion of academic independence via a form of paid for propaganda.
"To learn that one and a half thousand academics around the world are being paid by the EU to promote EU integration is deeply concerning and akin to the sort of deliberate indoctrination one would expect in Cold War Communism, not in the twenty first century western world.

Responding to President Obama's claims that the UK should remain in the EU, UKIP Leader Nigel Farage said: "Does President Obama understand that the European Union is a political union and not a loose association of member states? I'm not sure.
"The fact is that inside the EU, the UK's global standing is greatly diminished given that we are prohibited from negotiating our own trade deals. How can a country have a true global influence when it cannot agree to such deals on the world stage?Continue reading...

We in UKIP believe in a strong multi-ethnic society united by an attachment to Britain and British identity. We believe that the publicly-imposed doctrine of multiculturalism has worked completely against this.
Responding to the Prime Minister's speech on British identity and tackling Islamic extremism, UKIP's Culture Spokesman Peter Whittle said: "As Culture Spokesman I have spoken frequently of how multiculturalism has separated people, discouraged integration and led to an alarming fragmentation in our society. It has also led to a situation in which effectively no questioning of other cultures, religions or traditions has been allowed.
"David Cameron should ponder this when he talks, as he has today, of challenging extremist attitudes and the fact that people are growing up in Britain with no sense of attachment to this country. As usual with this Prime minister, such words will doubtless remain just that - words.
