A piece of EU referendum campaign literature distributed by Ukip is making the rounds on the internet for, well, entirely Ukip-esque reasons.

The campaign literature in support of West Worthing candidate in next month's local elections, Trevor England, lists a few reasons to vote leave in June, including:

Let’s invest in sustainable energy
