British Sovereignty? My foot.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Alan Duncan, the minister of state for aid, said the Department for International Development (DfID) was “forced to give” British taxpayers’ money to the EU and was powerless over how it was spent.

The charge will raise tensions within the Conservative party because it touches on two of the areas where the Tory Right is most concerned about David Cameron’s policies - foreign aid and Europe.

Brussels insists it does not “impose” its choice of aid projects on Britain but - in an escalation of hostilities - a senior Conservative separately accused the EU of lying. “If you want an EU lie, this is a classic one,” said the senior Tory. “It is a 100 per cent lie. We have been arguing with the EU whenever we can that the money should have a poverty focus.”

So why does Mr Duncan stick it out in the coalition, as subservient to Brussels as Cameron and Clegg?

We have lost our sovereignty because our MPs have lost their moral fibre..

How effective is UKIP?

Could there be a UKIP led political revolution?  

It is entirely possible.

Certainly, UKIP inspired change is on the way. 

The EU's control over us is the bigger part leading to this change - but the wind energy debate is well to the fore.  

The latest YouGov polls show UKIP are now the third most popular party in the UK and in Scotland the poll shows a spectacular change

Scottish Results

Conservative 17% (-2%)
Labour 40% (-1%)
LibDem 4% no change
UKIP 8% (+4%)
SNP 28% (-5%)
Green 1% (-1%)
BNP 2% (+1%)

UKIPScotland is now level pegging with the LibDems in Scotland. The coalition Government will be wide awake to these changes - and worried. The way to stop the Coalition from ignoring popular will is to support UKIP, joining us, voting for us, working with us.

It is a very sad fact that the bulk of legislation under which we live in the United Kingdom arises in the EU.   Most of us know that Brussels is behind the bulk of stupid Health and Safety restrictions and other restrictive laws.

The EU would have us believe this is all done only after the Council of Ministers, which includes the Prime Minister, has give an indication of the direction which new EU law should go.

Well, if he is party to those shenanigans, he has to explain why he let's the UK down so often when behind closed doors with his fellow EU so called Heads of Government

In Britain, the place where the Government can be questioned, indeed, should be questioned, is Westminster.

MPs should demand that the Prime Minister hold Prime Minister's EU Questions every week of his life. It affects every week of ours.

Leave the EU? Can we? Can't we?

Too many intellectuals and politicians who think of themselves as such, think too much, talk too much, write too much and can't see the wood for the trees.

Stop paying cheques to the EU, keep the shopkeepers doors open for trade, carry on being British and rejoice.

It can't go on like this...............

Think very carefully before you vote next time.

It’s UKIP or it'll be UK RIP.

Media Blocks

Pleased to see that Alan Cochrane, writing in Scottish Field,  has taken up the issue of councillors being gagged.

Hurrah! I have been banging on about that for years - and even sent fruitlessly to the media - including the DT.

Ex Cllr Arbuckle used to say nice supportive things when I railed on over the issue in meetings of the Council, and he has since gone to his pet press and published as a journalist on the issue too.  Ironic, as his party was probably the driver for the gagging clause.

Annoying thing is that UKIP policy would put paid to the stupidity but the media seem to have a mental block when they see the letters UKIP - pavlovian beasts, they assume we are a one issue party.

Why don't they read of policies?
