UKIP stands for a complete and total withdrawal from the European Union. Irrespective of whatever
new ‘withdrawal agreement’ or treaty the government agrees with the EU, UKIP will continue to fight for
the UK’s total independence from the EU, and to fully restore the UK’s former status as an independent,
self-governing, sovereign state.

and services while maintaining regulatory independence. If the EU is not willing to agree such a
mutually-beneficial arrangement, we will trade with the EU on WTO terms in the same way as we currently
trade with the USA or Australia.
- Britain’s international standing will be enhanced by leaving the EU as it will be able to act
independently, whilst retaining its membership of the UN Security Council, the World Trade Organisation,
the Five Eyes intelligence alliance, and over 100 other international organisations of which we are a
- Outside the European Union, Britain will be a more prosperous nation. We will regain control of
our trade policy, free business from unnecessary regulation, take control of our agricultural industry and
restore our fishing industry. Increased prosperity will mean more jobs and more tax revenue to pay for
the things we all want for the British people.
