An EU ruling that employers can read workers’ private messages sent via chat software and webmail accounts during work hours further demonstrates why we should make their own laws, said UKIP MEP James Carver.
“Sadly we are bound by rulings from the European Court of Human Rights and this latest one is just one more that we are stuck with regardless of whether we like it or not,” said Mr Carver, West Midlands Euro-MP.
“UKIP believes that British people should make their own laws and have them interpreted by our own Supreme Court. Otherwise we will continue to be burdened with judgements like this made by judges that we did not appoint.
“The only answer is vote to leave the European Union and regain our freedom and the ability to make our own rules and regulations,” said Mr Carver.
