Marketwatch Opinion: Britain wants to opt-out on paying for next eurozone bailout

In his testimony to the Lords committee, Osborne complained that the decision to use the EFSM — despite previous agreements that it would not be used in eurozone bailouts — was made in a crisis meeting with no noneurozone country official in the room.

Although Britain obtained guarantees in this particular case, Osborne was told by EU officials that the nine noneurozone countries didn’t need to be consulted because the 19 eurozone countries have the qualified majority necessary to make such decisions.

If anyone is in any doubt about what the the Lisbon Treaty means for British Parliamentary Democracy then this is the ‘EU Officials’ making it clear it does not exist in their world. This is the treachery of Lisbon made manifest.

Britain is paying for the Eurozone’s monumental fraud, bullying and incompetence. And it goes on……

The Peoples’ Pledge: Success for a fair EU referendum

Please Note: The Peoples’ Pledge is an independent cross-party campaign group whose views do not necessarily reflect those of UKIP

Dear Supporters,

Last night was a big moment in our campaign
for an EU referendum.

After lengthy debate, at 12:42am the
EU Referendum Bill was approved by MPs
by an impressive 316 votes to 53.

An EU referendum has just taken another big
step closer to becoming law.

But this wasn’t the only good news.

You will probably remember that, back in June, we wrote to you highlighting three threats to a fair EU referendum: on its timing, on the question and on suspending the purdah rules that restrict government activity within four weeks of the vote.

Net migration into the UK this year is at an all time high of 330,000.

Dear members and supporters —

Public concern on immigration is now at record levels, with Britain’s referendum on EU membership on the horizon.

UKIP will be campaigning nationwide in the coming weeks and months to point out how, locked inside the EU, we are Borderless Britain. That only by leaving the EU can we have a sensible, Australian-style points system to control immigration.

This is the critical issue. We must do all we can to secure a ‘No’ vote and get our country back. An independent, self-governing nation, free to put the British people first.

We need your help to do this. With net immigration running at an all time high, we need the resources to tell the British people what is going on and why we would be far better off outside the European Union. Please help us with a donation today.

The British people have had enough of mass, uncontrolled immigration. With your contribution UKIP can hold the government to account for their appalling record and do everything we can to get the UK out of the EU. The situation has never been as critical as it is today, so please donate whatever you can afford.
Ps. Stay tuned next week for the announcement of the Say No to EU referendum tour and how you can get your tickets.

Thank you,
