In a leak from the latest manifesto by UKIP, plans are revealed to build a 12.429-kilometer (7723-mile) barrier of concrete and barbed wire, around the British Coastline, armed with watchtowers and booby traps.
The new border between the UK and the rest of Europe will see the Channel Tunnel loophole into France also closed.
UKIP leader Nigel Farage said, “Those who attempt to leave the UK will be risking his or her life, unless of course they originate from Eastern Europe, where they will be issued with free arm bands and flippers to paddle their way back across the English Channel.”
The move is also seen as a way to prevent a brain drain by intellectuals and people with more than 2 ‘O’ levels or those who don’t read the Daily Mail and who definitely didn’t vote for UKIP.
However David Cameron has slammed the idea, “UKIP is simply taking advantage of the current tensions between the Parties in the hope of laying down an iron ring around the country." He pointed out that "many British engineers and construction workers have already taken up new opportunities in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, so who will be around to lay the first brick?"
However the results of a UKIP supporter’s poll indicate that many people are in favour of walling in the UK because there are many issues that cannot be resolved with an open border - in particular, letting in sullen parties of German school children and the importation of garlic.
