Lawcast 137: Gawain Towler, prospective UKIP candidate in the Euro elections

Today, as part of a new series of political podcasts for the Wardman Wire, I am talking to Gawain Towler, the prospective UKIP candidate for the South West in the forthcoming election. We discuss UKIP policies on Euirope, the alternative to membership of the EU, and a range of current issues. I also ask Gawain if UKIP will reap the benefit of support from voters fed up with the main parties after the expenses revelations of the last three weeks.

  1. Charon,

    I am not at all clear what the consequences of leaving the EU might be. Food would become cheaper, but how would the city and financial services fare?

  2. James C – for what it is worth, I can’t see us leaving Europe under any government – our law, trade, relations and culture is now entwined in Europe.

    I do see Europe evolving to be less important, simply because few nations have an appetite for a United States of Europe – and I can’t see that developing in 100 years, let alone 50.

    I am pro-European – so I think it would be a disaster to come out of Europe as such.

    It is curious how a Party’s policies change subtly when they get access to the books and state secrets on taking over government.

  3. Charon,

    I agree, but where does that leave UKIP? I am surprised they don’t face tough questioning from the press on this.
