I'm David Coburn. I'm the leader of UKIP in Scotland
and I'm the MEP for Scotland.
Three years ago, you elected me here to the European Parliament
to make sure we got Brexit.
Well, we've achieved what we set out to achieve.
Not many politicians can say that.
We need to make sure that we get Ukippers elected
to the House of Commons to make sure that Brexit means exit.
We need to be out of the European Single Market
because only by doing that
can we make our own trade treaties with the rest of the world,
otherwise we have to refer to 27 other states.
We want to be able to trade with exciting areas of the world
so that we can give more jobs.
That's what Ukip are all about - jobs, jobs, jobs.
The SNP - well, they say they're interested in Scottish independence,
they say they're interested in Scotland, but they don't seem to be.
They want to be ruled by this place, by the bureaucrats here.
They want part of this. Well, I'm sorry, that's not going to happen.
They've destroyed the education system, destroyed the economy,
left us with a £15 billion deficit.
Well, the European Union wouldn't wear that for starters.
While Tories, on the other hand, well, the SNP, Labour,
all the other parties, all of them, were for remaining in the EU.
Only Ukip is the unionist party that wanted to remain in the UK union
and get out of the European Union.
At least we stuck to what we said we were going to do.
We want to be able to protect our fishing grounds
and we can only do that by getting out of the European Union.
Now, fishing grounds, you may think that doesn't matter to you
but it does. It's a major industry for Scotland
and the rest of Europe are plundering our fishing grounds.
Only by leaving the EU can Scotland regain our fishing grounds.
The Conservative Party sold out the fishing grounds to the EU
when we joined in the first place
and I'm worried the Conservatives will do it again.
Most important of all, I want to see Scots stay in Scotland,
build their businesses and employ their fellow Scots,
and they can only do that if taxes are the same in Scotland
as in the rest of the E... of the UK.
You can't have higher taxes in...in Scotland
than in the rest of the UK. It simply will not work.
You will not get investment or people staying in Scotland.
OK, we must also protect our borders
to make sure that we have no stress on our health service
and no stress on our social security system.
This is important. We can't control that, we can't control the other.
I want to see jobs created. That's what Ukip are going to promise you.
That's what we're going to give you.
