EU court rules that mobility scooters and lawnmowers must be insured

The EU Court of Injustice has ruled that all motor vehicles should be insured, even if they are never used on public land.

EU judges ruled that a tractor that knocked a Slovenian man off a ladder should have been insured even though it was an agricultural vehicle that was only ever used on private land. The ruling means that member states must now force citizens to insure anything classed as a motor vehicle, including sit on lawnmowers, golf buggies and mobility scooters.

Jill Seymour MEP, UKIP's spokesman on transport, said:
This ruling by the European Court of Justice is absurd.

This is yet another example of the way an EU court filled with foreign judges can overturn established and democratically-enacted British law.

These judges legislate from the bench, in this case by digging up an obscure clause in a 1972 directive to force us to change our laws to suit their philosophy of relentless interference in British law and British private property.
The Conservative transport minister, Robert Goodwill, said he was "disappointed" at the ruling whilst a Tory spokesman said "Two legs bad, four legs good only with David Cameron as Prime Minister will British people get a referendum on our membership of the EU". Clearly the only way to stop this nonsense is to get out of the EU, remove the EU courts from our justice system and take back control of our country. The only way that will happen is with a UKIP government,
