You will have heard that our political alliance, the ADDE, has been under direct and aggressive attack by the European Parliament. We are under attack because we are staunch critics of EU integration, and powerful advocates for freedom and national self-determination. They also want revenge for our Brexit success.
We in the ADDE did exactly the same kind of spending as the other European parties. We hired no fewer than two experienced compliance officers who vetted all our spending – and who are flabbergasted at the attitude of the parliament. But the parliament changed the rules retrospectively, and applied different criteria to us than to pro-EU groups.
In a deliberate attempt to close us down and force us into insolvency, they are claiming back a total of €421k. We can deal with this through effective fund raising over a couple of years, but we are facing a cliff-edge of December 21st for which we have to find an additional €100k for the first tranche which we don’t currently have.
Let’s not give the EU Institutions the satisfaction of seeing a clear euro-critical voice shut down. With your support, we can defeat the parliament’s vindictive assault. We aim to raise this sum with crowd-funding appeals across Europe.
