Godfrey Bloom MEP

On Friday 29th May, Godfrey Bloom, the UKIP MEP for Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire, came to the University of York to talk to the NGS about ‘Our Future and Europe.’

godfrey-bloom-mepHe voiced his concern about the democratic deficit and the lack of accountability in the EU. He argued that the EU is too intrinsically faulted to be reformed and that therefore that the only sensible option for Britain is to leave it. Ultimately he proposed that within EFTA we could obtain all the benefits of free trade with Europe with none of the costs and compromises.

Members of the NGS as well as Dr Nicole Lindstrom, University of York European Studies Lecturer, posed insightful questions and a very diverse and interesting debate ensued. Godfrey’s candidness was noted and appreciated, particularly in light of the recent expenses scandal. He very honestly answered the question as to whether he had ever ‘signed in and sodded off’ and explained that he donates his MEP allowances to a number of local charities.
