Stamp of EU

IN response to Coun Tim Hodgson's letter attacking UKIP, (Solihull News) I would suggest he should face the reality of the Lib Dems' love of all things EU!

IN response to Coun Tim Hodgson's letter attacking UKIP, (Solihull News) I would suggest he should face the reality of the Lib Dems' love of all things EU! Unlike the councillor, UKIP would not be so arrogant to presume what the public has had enough of.

UKIP are doing the job we were elected to do in the European Elections of 2004 and exposing the EU and the Lib-Lab-Con politicians.

We are right to expose the Lib Dems' support for the directives that have led to post office closures. This included a directive that restricted government subsidy of £150 million a year.

This was not only supported by local MEP Liz Lynne but their leader, Nick Clegg, when he was an MEP.

This makes the Lib Dem plan of £2billion investment laughable as the EU would simply not allow it.

Maybe the Lib Dems should listen to Labour's Tony Benn, former Postmaster General, when he said: "But now this great service is being challenged. First by the EU, which has insisted on liberalisation and demanded competition."

It was this competition and liberal-isation that removed many services from the post office and led to closures.

Nikki Sinclaire, UKIP parliamentary spokesperson for Solihull.
