LETTER: Why I turned my back on the EU anthem


As your readers are no doubt aware it was my first day in the European Parliament recently, (July 2), and my first chance to stand up for the British people.

This is why I joined my fellow UKIP MEPs in turning my back when the so-called ‘European anthem’ was played.

I am there to represent the views of the people of the East Midlands, not to ‘honour’ the EU flag or anthem.

The EU elite must be challenged and made to realise the British people – and many others across Europe – want out of this wretched organisation.

It’s just a shame the Tory MEPs who claim to share the concerns of the Great British public did not follow the UKIP lead.

Margot Parker

UKIP MEP for the East Midlands
