Mr Nigel Farage, UKIP MEP for the South-East, says that UKIP opposes all impositions by the "anti-democratic EU"

 

Mr Nigel Farage, leader of UKIP and MEP for the South-East, told MBM:

“Thank you for your message about preserving rebated gas-oil for use in leisure-craft – a cause, which has provoked a thunderous outcry, attracted the support of numerous politicians and prompted HMG to apply for a derogation.
 
“Naturally, the UK Independence Party has been active in the campaign, because it opposes any impositions by the anti-democratic EU.  Other parties have been rather more pragmatic, if not opportunistic, in their lobbying, in that they only oppose this particular aspect of EU-policy – and only as long as it looks like losing them votes.
 
“If all the people who suffer from EU-regulation, and want a return to control by a government they elect – and can therefore influence – were to recognise their common interest and reject the cartel of pro-EU, incumbent parties, we would be well on the way to solving a great many problems, whether small, large or of over-riding importance – like how to stop the EU becoming a totalitarian state.”
