#UKIP: Farage – ‘Vote remain for political union with Turkey, vote leave if you believe in Britain’

Nigel-FarageToday (9 March) in the European Parliament UKIP leader Nigel Farage MEP accused the EU of being blackmailed by Turkey over the migrant crisis and asserted that the safest option for the British people is to vote to leave before Turkey can join the European Union. He was debating the upcoming European Council meeting on March 17th.

Nigel Farage said: “The historic error made by Chancellor Merkel last year by saying all can come has led directly to this mess and now we are being blackmailed by Turkey. I wish that David Cameron was as good at negotiations as the Turks are.” 

“So we are going to go into political union with a country that has got borders with Iraq, Iran and Syria, a country that is poorer than anybody else in the European Union and give free movement to 75 million people. And join up with a government that is increasingly islamist and authoritarian.”

“Well this referendum in Britain is all about what is the safest option. It is pretty clear to me that a vote to remain is a vote for Turkey, a vote to remain is a vote for massively increased immigration into Britain and a vote to remain is a vote that makes Britain more vulnerable to terrorism. It is safer to vote to leave and take back control of our borders.”
