On the day that Farage bottled out of standing in the Newark byelection (was that because Newark is an anagram of wanker?) I received a UKIP leaflet through the letterbox. Before ripping it up I noticed that they are misleading voters once again. Well either that or they have made a major gaff with their facts. Leaving Europe they say, will mean we can ditch the European Court of Human Rights. What rubbish. This court is nothing to do with the European Union. It is the individual countries of Europe, including Russia and other non EU states that are party to the European Convention on Human Rights.
I don’t know why UKIP is against human rights, but leaving Europe will not mean the UK leaving the Convention or the jurisdiction of the court!
