This is a reblog of UKIP PPC for Watford Nick Lincoln’s write-up of the IEA meeting I attended yesterday in Westminster. I shot the video clip below of Mark Reckless’ contribution, during which he notably states that a UKIP Government would abolish DECC.
As I said in a press release issued yesterday:
“The state of the economy is of vital concern to the people of Watford.
Like the Labour administration that preceded it, this Government continues to borrow to spend. It is digging future generations an even bigger debt hole. In the current fiscal year alone the coalition will add over £91 billion to the existing debt.
One day this debt of almost £1.4 trillion will have to be repaid. More and more taxes will be levied on the residents and businesses of Watford – and their children and grandchildren!
|The panel debate the state of the British economy|
As a nation we have to ensure spending matches income, as any prudent household would. Government spending must be directed to British people for British causes, not wasted on indiscriminate foreign aid and membership of the EU.
From this morning’s debate it is quite clear that the three failed legacy parties think it is business as normal. It is not. Action on the deficit and the debt must be taken now.”
