Welcome to my website.
I hope that you will share our aim for a better tomorrow for the United Kingdom outside the European Union (EU).
Outside the EU, Britain would no longer be paying £45 million a day in gross contribution, we would no longer have 75% of our laws derived from the EU - many of these are ill-considered, ill-thought out and inappropriate, even unto light bulbs - and we would be safer. This is because we would be able to control our borders.
Britain would be able to engage with the world outside the EU, in particular the fast-growing economies of India and China, on our own terms and in our own way.
My vision is for an independent United Kingdom in control of its own laws, in control of its economy, in control of its trade relationships and in control of its borders and foreign policy.
My personal mission is to protect the interests of the United Kingdom in the European Parliament and, as the best solution, to take the United Kingdom out of the European Union.
*"Yes we will" - These 3 words summarise well the optimism of UKIP supporters that Britain will be a free nation once again and leave the EU sooner rather than later. When that happens Britain will regain its pride and will be better off economically, socially and politically. - William Dartmouth UKIP MEP
Why should the United Kingdom be independent?
- Out of the EU, we would save £45 million per day in gross contribution.
- Out of the EU, we would regain control of 75% of our laws, many of which are ill-considered, irrelevant or inappropriate.
- Out of the EU, we would be able to negotiate our own trade agreements, allowing us to benefit from our special relationships with the growth economies of India and China.
- Out of the EU, we would be in charge of our own borders and our foreign policies.
What would we lose?
- Access to the European market of 400 million consumers? Nonsense. Even Libya has been offered a trade agreement with the European Union that is more attractive than the United Kingdom’s current position.
- The stabilising influence of the Euro and the European Parliament? Nonsense. We will never constrain our freedom by joining the Euro; and the European Parliament is a source of muddled compromise, bureaucracy and inaction.
- The reduced risk of conflict in Europe? Yes, Europe has had a torrid past. But binding us together with legal straight jackets, corrupt officials and unelected bureaucrats is more likely, rather than less likely, to lead to conflict between us.
The EFD Group
Europe of Freedom and Democracy Group
The UK Independence Party is a member of the EFD (Europe for Freedom and Democracy). UKIP MEPs sit with likeminded members from other European countries and form a Group. Being part of a Group gives UKIP MEPs additional speaking rights. It also gives access to additional funds for research and secretarial help.
Connections with the the electoral area
- I have been elected (along with five other MEPs including my fellow UKIP MEP Trevor Colman) for the European Union's South Western area.
- This encompasses 55 parliamentary constituencies. It covers the counties of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Dorset and Wiltshire. It includes the city of Bristol. On the mainland it stretches East - West from Penzance to Swindon and North - South from Tewkesbury to Bournemouth.
- It also includes the Scilly Isles and Gibraltar. Of course Britain's membership of the European Union threatens Gibraltar's continuing independence from Spain.
- I have family roots in South Devon. Separately, my brother Rupert and sister-in-law Victoria have lived between Bath and Bristol for over 20 years. In addition in the grounds of Tewkesbury Abbey there is a memorial to my great grandfather Bertram Cartland; killed in action in World War 1 and his two sons (my great uncles) Captain Tony Cartland and Ronald Cartland MP who were both killed in action in 1940 fighting in the rear guard at Dunkirk.
- The Cartlands suffered proportionately to many other families in the First World War but disproportionately in the Second. When I visited the Memorial in Tewkesbury it was quite a thought that Ronald Cartland was a sitting Member of Parliament when he died as a member of the TA. Ronald Cartland MP did not have to be fighting at Dunkirk at all - rather a contrast from today's professional politicians. There were then many other MPs in uniform.
