Karma is a bitch. You joined a party that at best can be described as anti-european, isolationist and borderline racist, then complain that they might be homophobic as well. Well duhhhh.
Good point Rovex
I agree with Rovex. What the hell did she expect? Fairness? Equality? How the hell she can support such a party of ´Little Britainers´?….Then she´s surprised to find them being homophobic as well as borderline racist? Incredible.
Lay with homophobes, expect them to behave as homophobes!
My god shes ugly…..ohh how funny, just like the party she represented!!
What Rovex? So you’re not allowed to be anti-european and concerned about mass immigration and gay at the same time!
UKIP are BNP lite, the fact she brought into UKIP racist, sexist and homophobic values, tells us so much about her own values.
Piffle! James Justice
James, Can you demonstrate a clear example of “mass immigration”. Many thanks.
She says that she joined UKIP in 1994. Which means she joined UKIP when it was *very* different from today.
UKIP was founded in 1993 by ex Liberals as a single issue Get-Out-Of-The-EU party. It attracted a lot of people who politically have nothing in common beyond a desire to leave the EU.
However over time particular elements have come to dominate the party, pushing it down a hard right avenue, although there are still people in the party who don’t agree with that line but who think most domestic policies simply don’t matter whilst we’re in the EU, and that UKIP is by far the most viable vehicle for leaving. (That UKIP undermines the Better Off Out cause seems to have eluded them.)
People like Rovex think that anyone that is vaguely patriotic, concerned about immigration or considers the EU even slightly over the top is deemed slightly right of Atilla the Hun, eats babies and shaves their head.
Have you seen the UKIP members list? No. There are plenty of different backgrounds, sexual orientations and nationalities in their membership base, that’s a fact.
@Rovex+Helen: Read the wikipdeia article on UKIP. It explicitly states that they have no ties to the BNP whatsoever and that they reject the sort of ‘blood and soil nationalism’ espoused by that party. Instead, they embrace British liberal and cultural values, in which anyone can partake, regardless of color, creed or race.
