Thinking of voting for UKIP? I would not be surprised. In the current General Election campaign the downside of EU membership has been waved around like a big flag, whereas the upside has hardly been mentioned.

The poorer parts of Northern Ireland, Scotland, North of England, and Wales (including Rhyl) have benefitted from European investment. It is not “our money anyway”, it is money we would not have received from the Westminster government.

A vote for UKIP would be a vote for leaving the EU instead of sorting any difficulties from within, and that would be case of throwing out the baby with the bath water.

After the election a Tory-led government would renegotiate terms of EU membership, and then put the revised agreement to an in-out referendum. That is a better way forward than the ways on offer from other political parties.
