Believe in Britain, claim Ukip leaflets that were printed in Germany

One problem for Ukip in being the only outwardly anti-EU party is that it leaves it so open to embarrassment for very routine, everyday matters.

A case in point is these leaflets, distributed in Cheltenham to support local candidate Christina Simmonds.

The leaflets - bearing the headline "Believe in Britain" - were printed by onlineleaflets.co.uk, which just happens to have its print operation based in Neustadt, Germany, oh...

Simmonds told the Gloucestershire Echo there was no hypocrisy involved, however.

"We believe in business and we believe in getting a good deal and it was a good deal. They provided excellent service," she said.

"Why wouldn't we trade and do business with people in Germany?"

On why Ukip didn't choose a UK-based printing firm, she added: "They could not provide us with the quality of service and the price."

Hm...
