Local UKIP member of the European Parliament Jonathan Arnott has issued a rallying cry to UKIP activists as the referendum campaign hots up. On Saturday March 5th, activists across the region and the rest of the UK will be taking part in Grassroots Out stands across many of the major population centres. With over 350 stalls planned across the country, this could be the biggest campaign day yet in the referendum campaign.
Jonathan Arnott urged UKIP members across the region to do their part: “We have just over 100 days to make our case for freedom. We’ve heard example after example of Project Fear, where a political establishment bereft of ideas are using every scare tactic in the book to try to intimidate the British people into voting to stay. Their problem is, that they don’t believe we’re good enough to stand on our own two feet. They believe that we, as the world’s fifth-largest economy, are an irrelevance and a footnote to history. Well I do believe we’re good enough. I believe in Britain. I believe that we can lead the way once more. If you believe in this country, you have just a few months to help us win this fight. Please help by coming along to one of the local street stalls this Saturday. Let’s show that we’re serious about taking back control of our country from unelected bureaucrats in Brussels.”
On Thursday March 10th, UKIP Leader Nigel Farage MEP will be headlining a massive cross-party anti-European Union public meeting in Newcastle. Speakers are expected to include Kate Hoey MP, Tom Pursglove MP, Peter Bone MP and Jonathan Arnott MEP. Tickets for the event, organised by Grassroots Out, can be booked online here.
