ANGER OVER GOVERNMENT SPENDING ON PRO-EU PROPAGANDA
Local MEP Paul Nuttall has described spending almost £10 million on pro-EU propaganda for every household in the country as ”an affront to the democratic process.”
Leaflets arguing for Britain to remain in the EU published by the government are due to land on doorsteps in the North West by next week.
“This is not only an affront to the democratic process, it’s a disgrace,” said Mr Nuttall, UKIP deputy leader.
“Taxpayers money is blatantly being used by the government to finance this propaganda blitz but meanwhile the campaign for Brexit is not allowed to spend such a vast sum.
“How unfair is that and alien to the British sense of fair play?
“It is also completely in keeping with EU tactics which not only try to fool people into believing it it is good for us but use our own money to bludgeon us about the head with their misinformation,” said Mr Nuttall.
“Trying to justify it by saying that independent polling indicates 85% of voters want more information to make a decision before the June 23 referendum is disingenuous. People do want more information but they want to know the case for both sides and not just one,” he added.
It comes as no surprise that Goldman Sachs is in favour of Britain staying in the EU – after all they have their sticky fingers deep in European monetary affairs.
The bank played a major role in the financial downfall of Greece and while we nowadays tend to think of that country just in terms of being a magnet for refugees on their journey westwards we should not forget that its citizens still suffer from the virtual collapse of its economy.
This predatory organisation made millions by helping to hide the true extent of the debt and then almost doubled it. Its whole raison d’etre is to make as much money as possible for its shareholders, which is, of course, the way of commerce.
They do not have the best interests of the UK at heart, just their own, unlike UKIP which was set up to regain our sovereignty and we will never give up that fight. On June 23 we have a once-in-a-generation chance to free our country from the failing EU project and voting to leave is the way forward.
Lord Rose, head of the campaign to keep Britain in the European Union recently admitted that if the UK leaves the EU, wages for low skilled workers in the UK will rise.
He may think that higher wages for low skilled workers is (to quote) “not necessarily a good thing” but many would disagree.
It is because of mass uncontrolled immigration from EU countries that wages have been pushed down to the minimum leaving many British families struggling to survive.
They would be delighted to have their wages increased, especially if they no longer had to rely on tax credits and decide whether to heat or eat.
I’m afraid Lord Rose’s comments throw into sharp relief the great divide between the very wealthy elite and the rest of the country who count the days to pay day not sitting in the parlour counting out the money.
Having plenty of cheap unskilled and low skilled workers from wherever in the globe obviously suits big business but it does not suit the rest of us who just want a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work.
Only by leaving the EU can we take back control over our country and give our workers the best possible wages.
‘It’s No deal – Oh Yes it is, Oh No it isn’t’ – the Westminster Panto season continues!

Commenting on the Prime Minister’s ongoing EU renegotiation, UKIP Deputy Leader Paul Nuttall has said: “Despite entering February, the Westminster panto season continues. The theatrics and drama of David Cameron’s sham renegotiation continues and he is playing us for fools.
“On the one hand we have Donald Tusk leaving a set piece dinner saying “No deal” and on the other hand Cameron’s assertion after that same meeting that it had been a good one.
“In 24 hours when, to no doubt great fanfare, Cameron returns with a “Deal” with Brussels it’ll looks like it’ll be nothing more than tinkering round the edges of our relationship with the European Union and will not go any way to dealing with the wholesale loss of sovereignty to the EU, the eye-watering cost of it, or indeed go any way to bring back genuine control of our borders from the EU.
“In short, don’t be fooled, again, by Cameron’s ongoing charade.”
Brexit would mean a level playing field for football
Published Jan 29, 2016
Suggestions by Britain in Europe campaigner Baroness Karren Brady that football clubs would be unable to sign continental players were today rubbished by Paul Nuttall MEP, the UKIP Deputy leader and former Tranmere youth footballer responded to the suggestions by the In campaign spokeswoman,
“Baroness Brady is so badly mistaken I suspect she is just saying this drivel as a way of thanking Cameron for her peerage.
“She must know that the number of international players in the UK coming from Africa and Latin America prove there would be no visa difficulties for talented players coming to British clubs from Europe. Players from over 100 countries have played for Premiership clubs, and current rules are biased in favour of players from the 27 EU countries, making it harder for clubs to recruit from across the world. Clubs and players need a level playing filed.
“The scaremongering about an increase in flight prices to European games is also twaddle, when you see that there are budget flights from the UK to Egypt and North Africa, and they’re not exactly in the EU.
“As for the price of mobile phone calls going up, she clearly doesn’t need to look at her mobile phone bill or she’d realise some phone operators even include calls to and from places like Thailand and America in airtime contracts. Again, not in the EU.
“If she wants to scare people into staying in the EU she’ll have to do much better than this, but I don’t think that’s possible.”
The decision by David Cameron to allow Cabinet ministers to campaign to leave the European Union if they wish is the honourable thing to do.
Harold Wilson did the same thing in 1975 but this time round I believe that the result will be very different and the British people, known for their common sense when armed with all the facts, will vote to leave.
I personally welcome Cameron’s move though it is a pity that the Prime Minister favours staying in the doomed and failing EU and will plainly support the campaign to remain in.
But whatever the outcome the rifts in the Conservative Party over the issue run very deep and may never heal.
