  • To continue to fight for a Referendum on the Treaty.

  • To continue our pledge to crack down on fraud, fight federalism and the creation of a European Superstate.
  • To continue the fight of over regulation and to cut red tape – to enable our large and small businesses in the NW to succeed.
  • To continue to hold the European Commission to account.
