UKIP launches major campaign across the South West Counties in response to EU propaganda


"It’s Time We Governed Ourselves"


[UKPRwire, Sat Jun 17 2006] Geoff Hoon, the latest Minister for Europe believes that we should have another "debate" ( * ) about the EU, so that the people of the UK can learn to know and love the European Union.

UKIP is responding to that challenge by mounting a public information programme in the Southwest using large billboards, leaflets, call centre and website facilities so that the public can learn the facts about the EU as opposed to the "spin" put about by the professional elites and the likes of Keith Vaz, Denis McShane, Douglas Alexander and Hoon. The EU's own opinion poll ( * ) shows that only 33% of the UK population believe the EU to be a good thing and that there is a “risk of loss of sovereignty” in the UK, ranking us second in our degree of EU-realism only to Austria.

The Billboards will be sited at prominent positions throughout the SW where traffic flows are the highest, and will carry a simple message: "It’s Time We Governed Ourselves"
The essential theme of the displays is that more than a “risk of loss of sovereignty”; we no longer govern ourselves, as successive governments have handed over our self-governing powers to an unelected bureaucracy in Brussels, and that we must get back those powers. Those who recognise this message are invited to call the number shown and to log onto the dedicated website for further information, and it is anticipated that there will be a huge response from the public to this simple, clear message.

The Call Centre FREEPHONE number is 0800 587 6 587 and the website is at www.letsgovernourselves.com


* 'Plan D', the information campaign run by the European Union and funded by taxpayers is set to be in Bournemouth on July the 6th
