News that a top British business woman has called for the UK to leave the EU has been welcomed by UKIP Leader Nigel Farage.
Helena Morrissey, CEO of Newton Investment Management, has said that the EU's top-down approach to business and politics was damaging the prospects of Britain.
"When successful people such as Helena Morrissey describe how EU membership is damaging our economy and constraining Britain's potential, it shows just once again that the economic argument for EU membership is a non-starter," said Farage.
"A confident, global Britain is what UKIP stand for. We wish to trade and co-operate with our European neighbours, but free ourselves from red tape and excessive regulation from Brussels.
"The tide is turning and I hope that many other business people will have the same bravery as Helena Morrissey and come out to condemn the EU's effects on our country."
