Margot Parker MEP on the EU poll for Northamptonshire
Northamptonshire UKIP MEP and PPC for Corby Margot Parker said: "UKIP welcomes the evidence the voters of Northamptonshire are coming to realise just how negative a force the European Union is and are expressing a desire to leave.
"However, it is disingenuous for the Conservative trio which commissioned this polling to try and spin this as some sort of hammer they can use to beat their recalcitrant, generally Euro-positive Prime Minister over the head. David Cameron, a Europhile at heart, will not be moved any further than he has been - indeed, he would not have been moved at all without UKIP giving a voice to people ignored for decades about the Europe question.
"Given how many broken promises lie in his wake, people are rightly sceptical that Mr Cameron will deliver a free, fair referendum on Britain's EU membership. If Peter Bone and Phillip Hollobone are serious opponents of the European Union, they should follow their principles and the example of their former colleagues Douglas Carswell and Mark Reckless in joining the only party which represents their opinions and those of thousands of voters in Northamptonshire and across the country.
"They most certainly should ask themselves very serious questions about remaining in a party lead by a man on public record as saying that he will campaign to remain in the European Union regardless of whether or not he achieves anything in terms of re-defining our relationship with Europe."
As your local UKIP MEPs we hope that sets the record straight.
Roger Helmer and Margot Parker, UKIP MEPs for the East Midlands.
