UKIP believes the UK should be governed by a Parliament, wholly-elected by the people of the United Kingdom. The European Union is not a loose union of states which cooperate on matters of shared interest, but is in reality on its way to becoming the United States of Europe. This is not myth or scaremongering. The EU is underpinned by a shared commitment to ‘ever closer union’. It now as a European External Action Service, which is the EU-way of hiding the existence of an EU army. It has the makings of its own police force – Europol and its own prosecutor. It has its own central bank and foreign minister, known as the High Representative. We don’t believe that a USE, led by a Franco-German alliance with an imperialist agenda will be good for the UK’s interests or those of the wider world.
