The Lord Haw Haws of the EU must Go!

Reproduced from the website of UKIP BREXIT spokesman Gerard Batten MEP which was posted earlier today  

The resignation of Sir Ivan Rogers, the UK Ambassador to the EU, is a positive step forward for Brexit.  He realised his position was untenable and he did the decent thing and resigned.

Next, we need to lose our EU Commissioner Sir Julian King.  If he does not want to resign, Mrs May should reassign him or pension him off.

We don’t need and EU Ambassador and or a Commissioner – what we desperately we need someone interfacing with the EU who actually wants to leave and will get on assisting Brexit and not hindering it.

BREXIT means exit

The following is a guest post by our London MEP and UKIP BREXIT spokesman, Gerard Batten


The 17.4 million people who voted to leave the European Union on 23rd June 2016 expected that to happen without delay.  But six months later Prime Minister Theresa May has done nothing to make it happen.  What is more she does not intend to do anything for another three months, and even then she will not commit to what Brexit actually means.

The Party is currently investigating what actually happened and as such it would be wrong for me to speculate before that investigation is concluded. I feel sure that we all wish Steven Woolfe MEP, a personal friend and a thoroughly decent man, a speedy recovery.

A reply to Barack Obama

Roger Helmer MEP comments on the visit of President Obama to the UK and his comments on our membership of the EU

My final comments on Obama visit.

President Obama’s recent intervention in the British Referendum debate, threatening that the UK would be “at the back of the queue” for a US/UK trade deal, should be treated with the contempt it deserves.  It is quite improper for a foreign Head of State to interfere in this way.  It is also not credible.  There are several key points to be made.
