UKIP today held its latest national day of action against Britain’s toll roads, describing them as ‘highway robbery’. Party activists delivered the message by unfurling huge banners at a series of ‘Scrap The Tolls’ demonstrations on road toll sites across the UK. Shropshire and Staffordshire UKIP members congregated at the Mill Lane Bridge, over the M6 Toll at Cheslyn Hay in the West Midlands.

We are in the extraordinary position of the insurgent party of British politics having spelt out its cuts, while the establishment parties have refused to do so. It is flabbergasting that George Osborne is going into the election having only set out departmental spending for one year ahead, while trying to get straight answers of Labour about its public spending plans is frankly impossible. Taken with other measures we will announce in our manifesto, this gives us annual savings of more than £25bn compared to the other parties, which would not do any of these things.
