In anticipation of a promised referendum of the UK’s membership of the EU, the key issue is whether Britain will get its democracy and self-governance back so that the future generation can call the country ‘their own’, UKIP leader Nigel Farage told RT.
‘What happens to UKIP (UK Independence Party) doesn’t matter. The reality of course is, we’re a party with a plan of what we should do once we leave the EU. But that isn’t the issue. The issue is: are my children going to grow up in a country that they can call their own?’ said Farage.
The biggest problem on the table of the EU membership debate in the next few years will be the open-door immigration policy at a time of 22 percent youth unemployment in the country, he added.
‘The key issue that will return will be open-door immigration. That is going to become the number one issue when it comes to the referendum. Above everything else is what people are going to vote on,’ Farage said.
According to UKIP leader, the country’s labor market will not be able to handle more people who will come to settle in Britain.
‘There is a risk over the course of the next few years that very considerable numbers of people will come. And frankly I don’t think our labor market or our social security system can bear it,’ he said.
