UKIP launch European Election campaign

A controversial poster campaign by UKIP leader Nigel Farage has been bankrolled by a Yorkshire multi millionaire businessman.

The anti-immigration campaign which claims "British workers are hit hard by unlimited foreign labour" has been attacked as 'racist' by their political opponents.

The man who has financed the advertising campaign ahead of the European parliamentary elections next month is Paul Sykes, who built Sheffield's Meadowhall shopping complex.
