The UK Independence Party has issued a statement on this issue, it follows;

"We're about to spend tens of billions of taxpayers money on a stimulus. The Olympics, council houses, maybe the Greens will get their housing insulation, more windmills and so on. But the point of a stimulus is to provide jobs for British workers to do instead of their festering on the dole. But under EU laws we cannot stop foreigners from taking these jobs. Even if we are paying our own tax money to create jobs, we still have to let EU workers apply for and get these jobs. So it will be "British taxes paid to foreign workers."

Who was it who said "No taxation without representation"? Well, it seems no-one listened to the man..... its now "no representation without taxation".

Lets sort this mess out .....NOW!
