It is good to see a growing Group of MEPs Rejecting Pan EU Corruption in a Party Group & Becoming credible again!
sorry I overlooked this ‘e’Mail.
It is good to see that Mike Nattrass MEP can once again stand up for Britain with some credibility now that he is no longer in thrall to a Pan EU Political Party Group – Whilst in The EFD he was clearly untrustworthy as he was promotting many odious values that had no relationship to these United Kingdoms.
Not least of the odious actions of The EFD is the aim to Reform The EU as with Marta Andreasen the odious Spanish charlatan put in place with lies and dishonesty and the support of Nigel Farage for details of the corrupt selection process CLICK HERE for details of the dishonesty and corruption of the self serving Spaniard CLICK HERE
Further for as long as Mike Nattrass remained in The EFD his credibility was ZERO as he was supporting Racism, Xenophobia, violence, anti Judaism, anti homosexuality and much more as do be minded his partners included a part of The Italian Government supporting Beresconni and having helped steer The EU Constitution Lisbon Treaty into being.
Further as a member of the group there was no honest accounting made of the 400 Budget being claimed by Nigel Farage amounting to £76,000 per MEP in his EFD Group. Where Mike’s 6000 Budget for travel went was not even known to Mike himself and as he said to UKIP NEC NO UKIP MEP in the EFD Group knew how Nigel Farage spent, invested or stole their money – though we do understand he has been forced to permit Marta Andreasen to have control of her own money as she looks for another party to join!
At last free of the thrall of the corruption Mike Nattrass can again start to earn back the respect he lost and start to be taken seriously in defence of Britain and in support of his Constituents now working with Nikki Sinclaire and Trevor Colman towards a common goal – LEAVE-THE-EU
Sorry I missed this earlier ‘e’Mail – HAVE checked and it is on Mike’s web site but like many of us we are out of the habit of visiting his web site as he was not to be trusted whilst supporting The EFD Group.

Subject: SOLD OUT FOR A SILVER EURO?
Press Release 14th April.
SOLD OUT FOR 30 PIECES OF EURO SILVER?
As one of the six MEPs for the West Midlands with offices very close to the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham, as a member of the Federation of Small Businesses, as someone with a personal interest in antiques and British silver and as one who stands up for my country, I am firmly opposed to the Government’s plan to scrap our hallmarking system.
The quality of our silver is the envy of Europe, which is why every 5 years the EU attempt to scrap the British hallmarking system. Much of European silver is self regulated, is of a lower quality than our own and does not have the world’s confidence, nor is it collected in the way British silver is sought after and treasured.
Since 1371 we in this country have had a quality control system for precious metals which is universally understood, fit for purpose and with an intrinsic value. The scrapping of the hallmarking system would destroy the Halls themselves and the expertise they have built up over centuries. It would have a massive impact on businesses large and small in the jewellery, metalworking, bullion and antique trades which are struggling to keep their heads above water in these lean economic times. This is an economic ‘own goal’ and benefits our overseas competitors.
It would undermine the world wide collectors’ market for precious metals in which the UK is a central player. At a stroke the Government would destroy not only a key aspect of our cultural heritage, but also a valuable income source for UK plc which it can ill afford to lose.
This system is not ‘outmoded’ just because it has existed for centuries. The reverse is true; because this system has existed for so long, it adds value to the articles to which it is applied and it supports a vibrant and economically valuable trade. It is economic nonsense as well as cultural thuggery to scrap the British hallmarking system.
It is time we stood up to pressure from the EU to degrade our industries and culture and here is a classic case, because our Hallmarking system beats the world.
MIKE NATTRASS UKIP MEP
As both a neumismatist and also having bought and sold precious metals over many years – actively trading in gold and silver for over 30 years I totally endorse Mike Nattrass’ comments.
