  • Blue Passports should be made in the UK, says Jonathan Bullock MEP

    East Midlands MEP Jonathan Bullock said he was disappointed the new post-Brexit passports may not be made in the UK.

    The British firm, which has made the UK’s passports for ten years, wants answers from the Government on reports it is set to award the contract for the new blue passports to a Franco-Dutch company.

    Mr Bullock said: "The new blue passport is one symbol of us voting to leave the EU. It is disappointing they look likely to be made abroad and they should be made in this country for security reasons.

    "Of course, this also means the loss of business to the current makers of the passports – a British company. I hope the Government will look at this again."

  • Gerard Batten - A Decisive Step towards Brexit ‘Betrayal’

    In a joint press conference, David Davies and Michel Barnier announced a “legal text which constitutes a decisive step towards a final agreement”. 

    What it actually constitutes is a decisive step towards a betrayal of Brexit and genuine Exit from the EU.

    Under the proposed Agreement we would see a transition period up to 2022 during which time we would be obliged to keep existing laws and implement new ones.

  • David Coburn says NO to a Brexit Transition Period - LET’S BREXIT NOW

    As I predicted, the Tory Brexit deal, is destroying the Scottish Fishing industry, over this 2-year period. It seems that Lib Lab Con & the SNP all prefer the EU running our fishing grounds. 

    As the only pro-Brexit Scottish MEP, I will continue to fight, alone if necessary, for Scottish fishermen!

    All those involved in the Brexit deal, claim they don't want to see a hard border in Northern Ireland, so why is there any issue? If nobody wants it, then don't do it! 

    The EU are playing dangerous & disingenuous games!

    The continuation of free movement during the transition period due to the Brexit deal, not only ignores the voters of the UK, but it also smacks of a desire to flood the UK with migrants to change our voting demographic. 

    Just like Labour did in the not so distant past!

    If there are no British MEP’s, then there should be NO Transitional period! Our taxes pay for this nonsense and taxation without representation is a dictatorship!

    Britain cannot become a colony of Brussels, for 2 days, let alone 2 years, with Zero MEP’s or seats at the table!

    Our unity may intimidate them, but it's none of their business!

  • Government failures on Casey will prove be a massive mistake

    With appalling timing after the revelations out of Telford where 1000’s of girls were systematically raped and in some cases murdered over a period of 40 years by gangs of largely Muslim men, the Government has watered down the recommendations of the Casey report commissioned after the earlier Rotherham rape gang scandal.
