UKIP’s Trade spokesman and Deputy Chairman William Dartmouth MEP said:
“This report demonstrates that Britain in the EU really is like a square peg in a round hole. We are by a country mile the most outvoted state at the European Council and in the European Parliament.
“In the EU, the British government has consistently failed to protect our national interests. We are better off outside the EU when we can take back more control of the laws which affect our businesses and lives.
“The UK has one Commissioner out of 28. That fact and the consistent losses at the European Council shows the UK has no meaningful influence in the EU.”
