POLITICS: Yet more hypocrisy

UKIP’s Peter Bird (‘Praise for MP, but not for PM’) acknowledges that “John Hayes MP is dedicated, and works very hard for the constituents of South Holland”.

However, the rest of his letter is sadly misguided. Anyone who saw the recent account of the first 100 days of a fictional UKIP government can only begin to dread the horrific chaos if this nightmare were to become a reality.

Only a Conservative government will renegotiate Britain’s relationship with the EU

In my view, voters need to understand that the UK Independence Party can’t and won’t achieve its principal objective without the election of a Conservative government.

UKIP massively lacks the political influence and pedigree to shift the ‘French-German’ mindset required for renegotiation of our relationship with the European Union ahead of a promised in-out referendum.

Reading John Hayes’ recent column, I was delighted to see that he also shares the Prime Minister’s view that it is for the British people to decide whether or not we remain in the European Union.

Only a Conservative government will renegotiate Britain’s relationship with the EU, bring back powers from Brussels and, in 2017 or maybe sooner, give the British people the final say in a straightforward in-out referendum.

UKIP’s plea to find more candidates to run for the district council is now so desperate that they’ll accept almost anyone, including foreign nationals.

Whilst at the same time demanding a reduction in the numbers of immigrants from the EU that they’re so eager to exit! Yet more hypocrisy from a party struggling to find votes.
