Outrage as greedy EU demands MORE of your cash
The surprise claim is likely to further boost Ukip in today’s by-election in Kent. The poll already looks certain to give the party another spectacular victory.
Members of the European Parliament demanded the cash – including £680million from British taxpayers – to settle unpaid bills. Anti-Brussels campaign groups were outraged last night about the sudden cash demand.Ukip MEP Jonathan Arnott, the party’s spokesman on the EU budget, said: “It is clear that the EU is beyond reform.
The truth about East European migration: One in 30 Latvians are living in Britain, one in 60 Poles are also over here - and statistics don't even show latest influx

MAX HASTINGS: Even those who refuse to regard Farage as credible sympathise with voters who back Ukip as their only way of delivering a howl of protest at the political elite’s failure over immigration

Today, voters go to the polls in the Rochester and Strood by-election. If there was any doubt about Ukip’s impending victory, this has almost certainly been dispelled by two shocking news items this week.
First, it has been revealed that Britain is granting its precious citizenship to more immigrants than any other EU nation: 193,000 passports dispensed like Smarties in 2012 alone, a total of 2.1 million since this century began.
Further statistics show that 1.3 per cent of all Eastern Europeans, more than a million in all, now live in Britain, and arrivals show no sign of abatement.

Soon, there won’t be a Europe to be part of

It’s not a question of in or out, but of whether Britain can avoid the flames of destruction
Forget the arrest warrant row, free movement of labour, budget surcharges and all the other invasions that come with membership of the European Union. There is a much bigger menace hovering above what my colleague Peter Oborne has called the “dreary parochialism” of the British debate on Europe than erosion of national sovereignty.

EU should work on becoming a single gas buyer - Sefcovic
Tuesday, 18 November 2014 12:28

Tories failing to threaten Ukip in Rochester
Saturday, 15 November 2014 22:09
BEFORE a single vote has been counted next Thursday’s Parliamentary by-election in Rochester and Strood has exploded the Tory belief that boots on the ground can halt the UK Independence Party insurgency.
David Cameron sent battalions of his ministers, MPs and activists into the effort to stop Tory defector Mark Reckless returning to the Commons as a Ukip recruit.
With just days to go before the crunch poll no senior Tories believe their once impervious Kentish bastion can withstand the Ukip People’s Army.
Editorial - Its the Economy Stupid (and they think that we are)
Tuesday, 04 November 2014 21:25
The EU has ambitions. It wishes to compete with the expanding Markets in China and India but cannot because the EU starts from one big disadvantage. Western Europe as a whole is, comparatively, very rich and has been for many centuries. The population has been historically well paid and will not tolerate a reduction in wages and living standards that will bring it down to closer levels as the majority of workers in China and India. On the other hand, workers from Eastern Europe, predominantly from the old Soviet Bloc, have not been used to high wages and living standards and will work hard for much less money.
