A challenge to Nigel Farage

The UKIP leader is in Swansea tomorrow and will be addressing what is being billed as a 'sell-out' rally. My focus however is on what he will not be telling us.

In particular I hope that he will use his visit to clarify the position around his own expenses. Mr. Farage recently performed a major u-turn on his offer to allow an independent audit of his spending of European parliamentary allowances. He said: "I don't think the general public are that interested in whether I've strictly observed the rules" This is despite the majority of British MEPs publishing independently audited accounts of their expenses

UKIP are treating Wales and devolution as an ‘inconvenience’ and are willing to put Welsh jobs at risk. Around 160,000 jobs in Wales are reliant on UK trade within the EU’s single market. That is more than 1 in every 10 jobs in Wales. 500 firms from other member states are based in Wales, providing more than 59,000 jobs.

As far as UKIP are concerned those jobs are expendable.

This is article on a UKIP meeting in Bath tonight that needs to be a widely circulated as possible to all voters before the European elections, it sent chills down my spine
