UKIP change their stance on Europe

UKIP submitted a resolution to Richard Corbett's report on the constitution for parliamentary vote.

In their resolution, group leader Nigel Farage MEP argues for more qualified majority voting (though curiously with fewer votes for Britain), for the veto to be restricted to"vital areas" and for more power to the European Parliament.

He also endorses the existence of a European Commission (though he would prefer it to be larger), and approves of the European Parliament having a final say over proposed legislation.
