LETTER: When will the political parties get it?

WHEN will the political parties get it?

The worries of the vast majority of our people are over population of this small island and the money-wasting rulings by the EU.

Our economic improvement means we are to be punished by the EU with £1.7bn to be given to the Euro-ruined countries and now there is a demand for £680m for “unpaid bills” of the EU.

Our NHS is in crisis and our A&Es are overwhelmed. We are paying stand-in doctors £1,700 per day. Our British doctors are trained here, then many vanish abroad for an easier life.

Our prisons are overcrowded, the education standard of our children is down. The demand for housing is so great it can never be met.
In Calais, where thousands of asylum seekers wait to get to Britain, the French waive the EU rule that immigrants must stay in the first safe country they arrive at. One rule for them and another for us!

Romanian Nicu Popescu’s wife and five children are heading to England to live off the state, where they will be housed and given benefits. They are entitled because he is a “self-employed” scrap worker. Their benefits will amount to £25,000 per year.

It would seem UKIP are giving the political parties the fright they all badly need, and not before time.

We need that EU referendum straight after the next election.
