Gerard Batten: 'Leave the EU now under our terms'

Breaking News

UKIP's leader Gerard Batten, travelling the country on his Tell them Again tour, has launched the party's European Elections Manifesto.

He made it clear that the only way to send a clear message at the upcoming European Elections was to vote UKIP, the authentic party of Leave.

The manifesto's message is simple: Brexit is being betrayed and we need to stop asking the European Union how we can leave and start telling them how we will leave.

That means no second referendum and instead repealing the 1972 European Communities Act.

Speaking from the 'Batten Bus' Gerard said:"We have to start telling the EU how it's going to happen."

He described the whole Article 50 process as 'a trap' designed to stop countries leaving.
