Responding to today’s Conservative manifesto launch, UKIP leader Paul Nuttall said:
“It is official. The Tory Party has become almost identical to the Labour Party. They offer no end to mass immigration, no firm Brexit, no end to spending billions of our hard-earned money on so-called foreign ‘aid’, and they offer no curb on our National Health Service being used as an international drop-in centre.”
UKIP will publish its fully-costed manifesto next week in a document that will reveal significant reductions to the £14bn so-called annual foreign aid budget, as well as a cast-iron guarantee around slashing net immigration by introducing a points-based mechanism.
Mr Nuttall added: “Way back in 2010, Theresa May and her colleagues promised to limit immigration to the ‘tens of thousands’. She’s made the same hollow statement today. But the reality is net immigration has risen by 1.8m since she came into government because they are too gutless to put a legal mechanism in place to achieve it. Theresa’s Tories are merely a continuation of Labour’s incompetence and indifference. We urge our supporters and voters not to be fooled by her opportunist rhetoric.”
