European elections 2014: UKIP

It’s time to decide. We don’t need to wait until 2017 to have a referendum: let’s have one right now.

We’re asking you to use the European Elections on May 22 to tell the establishment what you think about the EU.

Your choice is a simple one. On one hand you have three tired old parties, who are all committed to Britain remaining a part of the EU.

On the other you have UKIP, who believe in a better way, in independence and a brighter future.

So what will UKIP do for you?

With your help, we’ll continue to work for the UK’s withdrawal from the big political project that is the EU – the project, as a long-serving commissioner said recently, to create a United States of Europe.

With your help, we’ll succeed.

In the meantime, your UKIP MEPs will continue to go to Brussels and Strasbourg with a mission unlike that of any other party.

We don’t go there to make the EU better, more powerful, and help it pass more laws. We go there to find out what it’s up to, and let you know.

We go to represent what you want!

A lot of lies have been told about the EU. One thing we’re frequently told is that we’ll lose three million jobs if we leave.

No sensible commentator has ever predicted this, because the EU countries have far more to lose by interfering with our trade with them, than we do. We’re more likely to gain jobs than lose them.

The reason that big businessmen are regularly wheeled out to say they want to stay in is because the EU is geared to help big businesses, and to prevent small ones from challenging them, that’s not surprising.

It’s our 4.8 million smaller businesses that suffer from the burden of EU laws and regulations.

They say that the EU is the future, and that we couldn’t survive outside it: but we’re the world’s sixth largest economy, and while the EU share of world trade is shrinking, our prospects are very good indeed.

In these elections we’re promising one thing to the people of Northamptonshire ahead of anything else.

That UKIP MEPs will go to Brussels in your name with one over-riding goal: to make themselves redundant, by getting Britain out, and returning to the UK the power to govern ourselves. We want our country back. Don’t you?
