"Madam President, less than a year ago I set up a cross-party petition for a referendum in the UK in respect of membership of the European Union. The campaign has attracted high-profile support from across the political spectrum. What these people have railed against is the EU obsession of creating a European federal state, ignoring the will of the people and democracy. One cannot ignore the will of people forever. My constituents constantly come to me and say, ‘When are we going to get a say on our membership of the European Union?’ The will of the people across Europe has been ignored, a single currency has been created, against the will of the people of Europe, and look what problems have been created. There have been referenda in Member States and they have been ignored. The people from my constituency, the people across the UK and the people across the European Union are saying, ‘Let the people decide’. The professional politicians have made a mess. Let the people decide."@en1
