UKIP on the Canada-EU trade agreement

21 07 2011

UKIP is a right-wing party opposed to Britain’s membership in the European Union. Although it certainly isn’t a racist party like the BNP, it does engage in the politics of the nostalgia and frequently pines for the days when Britain’s ties to the Dominions were much stronger. Despite its hatred of the EU, UKIP members sit in the EU Parliament. One of them gave this speech on the proposed Canada-EU trade agreement. He professes to be concerned about the possibility that the agreement would limit Canadian sovereignty.
