The UK has state paid "maternity leave" - and "paternity leave"?
Wow! Don't tell the welfarites in america that. Here, you can take time off, but the gov't doesn't pay you for it. If your job has a deal, or you get sick time that you've saved up, you can get paid.

You have to remember a lot of UKIP MEPs are ordinary people, who say it how it is, not dressed up all fancy like former members of the Bullingdon Club do.
They want what is best for Britain, to dig us out of the ongoing mess the big three seem to be making worse.
Sure he could have been more tactful, but lets face it, the rest of us are thinking the same thing, kind of.
EDIT: For the record, I do not vote for UKIP, I do not vote, period, never have, never will....that way I cannot be held accountable in my mind for the crap we are dealt.
