All funds raised by ‘The UK Independence Campaign Metric Martyr Fund’ will be fully accounted and will be used to assist in the prosecution of the right of British citizens to deal in Imperial Measurements, as is their right under law, free of harassment as a result of illegal attempts to impose Foreign Laws alien to British Common Law.
