Heavy-weight "Change or Go" report challenges Cameron's claim that being in the EU is good for the UK

PaulNutall-new1.jpgUKIP's Deputy Leader Paul Nuttall has today welcomed the publication by a group of business leaders and economic analysts of "Change or Go," a 1,000 page assessment of Britain's place in the EU: "This report challenges the many myths David Cameron and his allies are using to try to frighten the British people into staying in the EU."

"UKIP welcomes this list of demands for changes Cameron ought to make, but clearly is not making, in his negotiation with the EU. The report concludes that unless the Prime Minister can achieve a fundamental change in Britain’s relationship with Brussels, the country’s households and businesses will be better off if the UK opts to leave the EU."

"In light of this report there are two important things that need to be highlighted. Firstly the startling level of the UK's contribution to the overall EU budget and secondly the supremacy of EU law over UK law. These are two fundamental principles that must change, unfortunately however it is clear Cameron intends to do nothing about these issues.

"UKIP has said this for years, and we welcome our argument moving to the mainstream of debate. The EU is bad for Britain. We are better off out. This report gives us 1,000 pages of reasons why. I only wish Cameron were honest enough to tell the British people the truth about the damage the EU does to every family and every business in the UK."
