Clean EUkip up NOW make UKIP electable! 


The corruption of EUkip’s leadership, 
their anti UKIP claque in POWER & the NEC 

is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!  


Ukip Notably Absent In Intellectual Opposition to The EU  having no representation of any gravitas, nor credible policies for an honourable exit & survival strategy despite 21 years of ‘claimed’ opposition to EU membership!



some twenty of the country’s leading economists and economic commentators have backed calls for an In/Out referendum on the subject of Britain’s relationship with the EU.
In default of honourable patriotic leadership, in these United kingdoms, willing to restore the supremacy of the peoples over Westminster as the authority in Britain and restore respect for our borders and British Justice under British law in respect of our Monarch.
The peoples of Britain deserve to have their voices heard, in a free, fair and informed referendum equally funded in respect of democracy voting on Britain’s membership of the EU, which is long overdue.
The informed signatories of the letter, published in the Daily Telegraph, added that Britain had nothing to fear from leaving the EU, an argument self evident in the light of the damage to our industry economy and democracy that membership of the EU has proved to be, as warned of by Enoch Powell 25-Feb-1970 CLICK HERE whilst Edward Heath and his Government betrayed the peoples of Britain based on their lies, misrepresentation and Government funded spin and propaganda promoted by a largely subservient press..

The letter below was released to mark the launch of Economists for Britain, which under the leadership of Dr Ruth Lea, aims to provide an intellectual sounding board for the research.

The text of the letter follows:

Dear Sirs,

As economists and economic commentators we are writing to add our voices to the growing demands for a new relationship between Britain and the European Union and to express our support for an In/Out referendum.

For too long the debate over Britain’s EU membership has been characterised by half-truths and outright fabrications. The wholly misleading claim that millions of jobs would be lost if the UK were to leave the EU has been comprehensively disproven and refuted.

Research shows that British business wants and needs a substantial change in our relationship with the EU. The Prime Minister’s own Red Tape Task Force has warned that EU red tape is holding back job creation and business expansion. However, before thinking about leaving the EU, we must see if the British Government can first secure better terms of membership. But if the negotiations do not deliver, there is nothing to fear from leaving.

The UK’s future prosperity increasingly depends on its ability to trade with the whole world, not just its European neighbours. In 1980 the EU accounted for over 30 per cent of world GDP, today that figure is less than 19 per cent. The share of UK exports to the rest of the EU has fallen by 10 per cent in the last ten years alone. We need to move beyond a 20th Century economic mind set and be free to develop our links with the rising economies outside Europe.

Just as “little Englanders” are wrong to argue for protectionism, so too are “little Europeans” who only focus on Britain’s trade with its next-door neighbours. We need a global vision, a vision that looks beyond the limits of Europe and sees the opportunities that the wider world offers.
