EU-supporting Daily Mail tries to hold the line for Brussels

It’s very interesting to see the EU-supporting Daily Mail has on its online homepage, and several sidebar links, the following headline linking to a story…

But clicking on the link and opening the story reveals this…

The story does not contain even a single mention of the terms ‘European Union’, ‘EU’ or ‘Brussels’.  The EU-supporting Daily Mail has however done its work.  The millions of people who read the site will see the headline and accept it at face value, while only a proportion of them will click through for more detail and find no reference whatsoever to what the headline’s claims.

It seems that despite the silence of the main parties and UKIP about the EU’s involvement in degrading the UK’s flood prevention approach, the grassroots effort to bring the issue to the fore and expose the UK’s inability to control its own floods policy and environmental concerns being given priority over humans, homes and businesses,  has got some in Brussels and the UK media rattled.

    Tonight’s Question time.
    Keith Vaz: “I’m astonished, actually, that Lisa hasn’t blamed Brussels for the floods coming from UKIP”.
    Lisa Duffy: “Well it’s not Brussels fault is it”.

    I did not see this as I do not have television but I am fast becoming SO ANGRY with UKIP for not standing up to what, I believed, was our raison d’etre !! Somebody has “gone native” and I can’t say who.
    EU Ref is the only place where the truth is published.

    Thanks Richard, I am indeed honoured. A daily tonic to anyone interested and appalled by what lies behind the spin and nonsense. A request to you or anyone who can help out. I’ve tried without success but can anyone find details of UKIP’s voting record on these various directives relating to the floods? UKIP’s silence on this (until the other day when they hastily posted up some guff about directives on their webpage) is rather odd to say the least.
    Thanks in advance, all.
