-After a statement on his own website that Nuttall lost two friends at Hillsborough was discovered to be untrue, UKIP press officer Lynda Roughley has taken blame and offered resignation. This came in an interview when Nuttall asked about the statement and Nuttall (who was there on that horrible day) made clear he had no idea what the statement said and made clear it was very very wrong. He needs to check his press office, second time they have been caught out being inaccurate in statements about him, survivors are not pleased

Every UK government since 1975 has been quietly and deliberately dismantling Britain under the Lima Agreement 1975 – a UN UNIDO initiative. In this, Britain agreed to send its industry to third world countries, along with industrial finance, resources, tools, machines and skills. Similarly with agriculture and fishing.
The results are seen in unemployment, urban decay, degraded education, no agriculture and no fishing.
All parties are involved in this so it really doesn't matter who you vote for – you're voting to dismantle Britain.
We are now an 83% importer of everything we need to survive as individuals and as a nation.
There are only two food importing ports left open and they're owned by the Chinese.
all our great western ports are closed, the greatest merchant fleet ever known is gone, All gone.

The Lima Agreement, 1975. Check it out and forget the future of politics in the UK.
The future is that there is no UK – but there might be a Britanistan on some future map of the world.

It would require coordination last generations, agreement of generations of political figures with very different views, fixing of elections for a massive conspiracy like that, fixing the teaching unions, society attitudes and a secret cabal of those who wish to merge Britain with other nations.

Our unemployment is, what, 5%? Our poor education is a real problem, our lack of manufacturing is a problem but that is human incompetence and some of the issues you describe are are inevitable costs to globalization (and some not so inevitable ones). I do believe conspiracies can happen (who can doubt it after Hillsborough inquiry) but the scale of the conspiracy needed for what your describing, I'm not convinced humans are capable of being that precise.

It's hardly a conspiracy when you can go on to the UK government website - and lots of other governments - and read the text of the agreement.
You can go on you tube and watch Australian executive officer and politician Anne Briessington criticise the results of Australia signing the Lima agrrment.
Conspiracy? Hardly. Mainstream politics, my friend. Gooogle it.

HISTORIC HOUSE HANSARD

29 May 1986

Page: 4325

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS
Lima Declaration

(Question No. 3650)

Mr Conquest asked the Minister representing the Minister for Industry, Technology and Commerce, upon notice, on 20 March 1986.

(1) Is it a fact that Australia (a) voted in favour of the Lima Declaration on 27 March 1975, (b) is a signatory to it and (c) has subsequently ratified the declaration.

(2) Do points numbered 59(c) and 61(d) of the Declaration militate against the interests of Australian manufacturers by suggesting that certain productive capacities be redeployed to developing countries.

(3) If so, why has the agreement been signed.

http://www.gwb.com.au/gwb/news/lima/
The Lima Declaration and Plan of Action calls for the redistribution of world industry so that developing countries would have 25% of it by the year 2000. To achieve this, radical changes in traditional concepts and practices are recommended. Economic growth in poorer countries could no longer be seen as the "trickle down" benefit of growth in rich countries. To close the gap between richa nd poor nations the developing countries would have to grow faster than the developed countries. With this end in mind, the Lima Declaration sets out the "main principles of industrialisation" and defines the "means by which the international community as a whole might take broad action to establish a New International Economic Order".

I don't deny there is an agreement to try to raise the poorest countries to a richer level or that we signed a UN treaty. I deny that there is a secret conspiracy over generations to destroy this country

Sorry for not being clear
