UKIP Leader Nigel Farage: "The Labour Party has been dragged, unwillingly, to accept the inevitable that there will be an In/Out EU referendum in the next two years. But Harman and Benn's position shows quite how little they have learned from their defeat and how much more they have to learn about the European Union debate in the UK.
"They grudgingly accept that it is the will of the British people to have a say on their future, but they make it clear that they will campaign for an In, whatever the result of Mr Cameron's negotiations. So in reality this isn't a conversion to democracy and the facts of the European argument, merely an acceptance of the inevitable. Claims that the EU has kept the peace for 70 years, and that Britain would be in some way barred from trade with the EU nations rebels against all evidence. But they have closed their minds and hearts to evidence.
"Britain's future as an independent trading nation, making decisions about its own future, engaging with the world and growing in confidence and success will give the people of this country great opportunities and hope. Pre-rejecting those chances as Labour are highlights the paucity of vision and ambition they have for this country and its people. They must allow individual members of the Shadow Cabinet and the Parliamentary Labour Party to campaign and vote on this great matter freely, unwhipped.
"With UKIP you have a clear vision, a party that looks towards the future not to the hidebound past. We are 100% united in our desire for a happy, free and confident future, released from the shackles of our membership of the diminishing European Union."
