Responding to the accusation by Leanne Wood, Plaid Cymru's Leader, that UKIP is "un-Welsh" Nathan Gill, UKIP's lead MEP Candidate for Wales said:
"I have been called today by dozens of our supporters and members who are horrified by Plaid Cymru Leader, Leanne Woods claim that somehow to vote UKIP means that you are un-Welsh. What is un-Welsh about wanting to put power back into the hands of people? The EU is un-democratic. We love Europe, but not the EU superstate, with its power grab to Brussels at the expense of Nations and the regions. Was it not Brussels that wreaked havoc on the farmers of Wales with EID, and Plaid Cymru MEP Jill Evans having to admit that there was nothing that she could do to stop it.

UKIP's Communities Spokesman Suzanne Evans has hit out at "farcical" posturing on immigration from Tory Minister James Brokenshire today.
Suzanne Evans said: "Whilst it is welcome that the government are now aggreeing that mass uncontrolled immigration has damaged the prospects of many in Britain, the Conservative critique is bordering on farcical.
"UKIP has always said that uncontrolled favours some employers who get a steady flow of ultra cheap labour, but it does great harm to those living in the most deprived circumstances.
Nigel Farage will take on Nick Clegg over Britain’s membership of the European Union in two live, hour-long broadcast debates, UKIP is delighted to confirm.
The first debate will take place on Wednesday March 26 at 7pm and will be broadcast and presented by LBC. Then, exactly a week later on Wednesday April 2 at 7pm, a second hour-long debate will be broadcast live on BBC2.
Responding to Nick Clegg’s attack on UKIP MEPs today,
UKIP leader Nigel Farage in Brussels said:
“Nick Clegg has some cheek raising attendance and voting records. Although Nick Clegg himself though he lives in London, between 2010 and 2014 he has voted in Westminster only 22.6 per cent of the time.
"What Farage is, is a politician who speaks like an ordinary human being rather than in the contrived, sanitised language in which most senior politicians nowadays talk."

More than a dozen UKIP anti-road toll campaigners joined UKIP West Midlands lead candidate Jill Seymour to protest against the M6 Toll Road this morning.
As at Dartford, drivers tooted their support as Jill described the mess that is the M6 to the local ITV station plus reporters from several local newspapers. The M6 Toll Road was built to relieve congestion on the M6 though Birmingham, but is unused because of the high cost: the Highways Agency has been forced to enlarge the old, untolled M6 at a cost greater than the cost of building the Toll Road which was supposed to relieve the congestion!
