Lord Pearson’s Bill passed in Lords.

This week heralded a victory in Lords for Lord Pearson and his European Union Membership (Economic Implications) Bill.

This could have a number of outcomes including being dismissed by the Europhiles in parliament.

The benefits of this being debated in parliament is that the public will hear about the implications behind it, the constant mismatch of figures of the costings of our membership per day and how much we could save by not being a member.

Also this could highlight the extra monies we put in for bailouts and handouts to less affluent countries and how much past bailouts have cost us.

Bearing in mind the want another 25 Billion for the bailout fund just this week.

I hope it is debated at a respectable time and is heard by many Mp’s, especially the ones that stood up to party whips.

We as a country should get behind bills like this, even if you think Camerons Veto had an effect. What did he veto excactly? Our future, us being on the outside looking in or nothing. Was it a ruse to get us back on side in the UK?

I for one agree with Farage, it is time for the great escape. Lets us get ourselves straight and solvent, immigration sorted and our people back on track.

This was sent out by the Press association.
MPs sent Ukip’s EU analysis plan.

A plan by the UK Independence Party to force the Government to carry out a cost/benefit analysis of Britain’s EU membership has been sent to the Commons.

Ukip peer Lord Pearson saw his European Union Membership (Economic Implications) Bill agreed by the House of Lords, meaning it will go to MPs to consider.

Before being picked up in the Commons, an MP will have to sponsor the Bill – but a Ukip spokesman said the party was “very confident” an MP could be found.

Following the third reading vote, Lord Pearson said: “For far too long the Government has simply maintained that the benefits of membership are so overwhelmingly obvious that such an analysis would be a waste of time and money.

“The people of Britain are no longer prepared to accept this. All great debates require knowledge, and there is no greater debate than the future governance of this country.

“It is in the interests of every single one of us that this ongoing debate is conducted from a position of knowledge rather than in a cloud of ignorance, obfuscation and dishonesty.

“My Bill provides for an independent panel, comprising of people from across the spectrum of opinion, to weigh up the evidence.
“We must know what the costs, and what the benefits, really are. This debate is long overdue.”

Lord Pearson’s Bill is unlikely to become law unless it wins Government support
