A majority of voters would prefer the UK to be a member of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) as opposed to the EU, according to a new survey published today by the Bruges Group.
Of those expressing a preference in the survey, a clear 71% said that Britain would be better off as a member of the trade group EFTA, as opposed to 29% who thought that Britain should remain a member of the EU.
Havering councillors Sandra Binion, Fred Osborne and Ted Eden, who has been a Conservative for more than 50 years, have joined Cllr Lawrence Webb, who was elected earlier this year, on the UKIP team.
Cllr Eden said: “I’ve been deeply involved in the party, but now I share more UKIP ideas. I don’t think David Cameron has got the broad talent, the deep worldly experience, he has never been at the coal face of life.”
UKIP's candidate in the upcoming by-election in Ynys Mon on August 1 is local businessman and father-of-four Nathan Gill.
A vote for Nathan is a vote for change and for the common sense policies of UKIP.
Meet Nathan alongside UKIP Leader Nigel Farage at a public meeting at Holyhead Town Hall on July 23 at 7:30pm.
Nathan wants to:
● End open door immigration, which will see our borders open to 29 million Bulgarians and Romanians from January 1.
You deserve better. Vote UKIP and shake the Cardiff Bay political class out of its complacency.
Visit our Campaign Office at 9-11 Boston Street, Holyhead LL65 1BW, or call us on 07830 916 233 to meet Nathan.
Nigel Farage has condemned the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority proposal to increase MPs' pay pointing out that their own poll revelaed more than two thirds of MPs thought they were underpaid.
“Given that Westminster has given 75% of law making to Brussels then surely MPs should be subject to a 75% cut. That would be my suggestion," Mr Farage said.
The UK Government will be helpless to prevent huge job losses and a looming pensions disaster when the Royal Mail is privatised, due to EU regulation
Paul Nuttall MEP, UKIP Deputy Leader points out that Westminster will be hamstrung by the same EU regulations that forced it into privatisation.
Another money wasting propaganda plan by the EU came under fire from UKIP today.
"This latest piece of costly nonsense - an 'independent' online news outlet - is a disgrace at any time but particularly in these austere times," said Paul Nuttall, the party's deputy leader.
"This decision is abhorrent and arrogant. Prisons sentences determined in a UK court for crimes committed in the UK have nothing to do with faceless foreign judges in Strasbourg," said Nigel Farage
"The terms of a whole life tariff should be a decision for a democratically elected Government, one which can be removed by its people. It should be a matter of national sovereignty. It is almost as if the judges in Strasbourg are deliberately taunting the UK with this latest controversial decision which once again undermines our legal system.”
