Britain’s economic and immigration problems will be solved if we leave Europe, according to the UK Independence Party.
Launching its manifesto, leader Lord Pearson of Rannoch also said the party would not stand against hardline Eurosceptic rivals at the forthcoming General Election.
“We are told that the voters are not really interested in Europe,” he told party members in Milton Keynes, Bucks. “The plain fact is that the easiest way, perhaps the only way, to solve the problems of the economy and immigration is to leave the EU.”
He accused Britain’s three major political parties of being “timid” on immigration.
“If you want more of them, more of the Lab, Lib, Con, if you want to make absolutely sure that nothing will change, you should vote for one of them,” he added.

Lord Pearson does not explain exactly how leaving the EU would change immigration or whether they plan to revoke free movement of labour for Europeans living in the UK.
UKIP want to introduce a five year freeze on immigration.
