Members of the European Parliament

The Better Off Out campaign is supported by thousands of ordinary people, as well as some MPs, Lords, journalists and opinion formers. Below are some quotes from some of our renowned supporters in the European Parliament on why they believe we would all be BETTER OFF OUT:

“I have no hesitation in signing up to the Better Off Out Campaign!  As a Member of the European Parliament for UKIP, my belief that Britain should leave the EU is, I trust, self-evident.  I became actively involved in politics in 1992 when I joined the Anti-Federalist League (later to become the UK Independence Party), precisely on the basis that Britain should leave the European Union and  re-establish herself as a self-governing, independent nation.  I urge every United Kingdom Local Councillor, MP and MEP who believes that Britain should be a free country to sign-up to the Better Off Out Campaign.”  Gerard Batten MEP

“Better Off Out is one of the neatest and truest statements in British politics today. With EU membership costs surging towards £60 million a day in fees alone, not to mention the massive savings to be made from slashing red tape, there’s no better time to be better off out.” David Campbell Bannerman MEP

“The Better Off Out campaign has redefined euroscepticism in Britain.  Anybody not signed up to BETTER OFF OUT should not call themselves eurosceptics.”  Nigel Farage MEP – Leader of UKIP

“The EU is making us poorer, less democratic and less free.  I don’t see withdrawal as an end in itself, but as a means to an end – that end being a Britain which respects the principles of limited government and individual liberty.  I don’t want to take powers back from the EU only to let them fester in Whitehall; I want to pass them down to local communities and to private citizens.  I want decisions to be taken as closely as possible to the people they affect.  I want decision-makers to be answerable through the ballot box.  None of these things is possible as long as our laws are handed down by Brussels functionaries.”  Daniel Hannan MEP

 

“We’re winning the arguments, and the Better Off Out campaign has played a huge part in that success.  Welcome to the new web-site”  Roger Helmer MEP
