It was great to read in today’s Daily Express (10th March) that Ex-Governor of the Bank of England, Melvin King, proposes our exit from the EU in broad agreement with the proposals I am writing for UKIP as our Brexit Spokesman.
Mr King reportedly said, “I do think that it is important that the UK is proactive in setting out what Government’s plan for immigration policy will be.” He also said that he “opposes a transitional plan”, which would delay our exit.
Mr King mad the point that I have been making for years, which is: “I think we should make very clear what our position is and then very calmly talk to our European partners. It is they who need to negotiate with us because they have a much bigger trade surplus with us, we have a large trade deficit with the rest of the EU”.
Quite so! It is the UKIP which is in the strong bargaining position not the EU.
The full UKIP EU Exit Plan will be published in due course.
