    When David Cameron called them a bunch of “fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists” his judgement of UKIP was just about spot on. The past 5-10 days has shown UKIP council candidates who fit in one if not all 3 of those classes, and some people are honestly thinking about voting for such a party?

  3. Since the pamphlet seemed more biphobic than homophobic, will Pink News correct their headline? Or are they happy to be biphobic too?

  4. Anyone who votes for UKIP should have their right to vote removed forever!

    1. de Villiers 29 Apr 2013, 12:41pm

      Really? How can gay people vote positively to a person who suggests that people should lose their right to vote in a democracy?

    2. Spanner1960 29 Apr 2013, 8:02pm

      Ah yes! The old “democratic vote as long as it’s for us” ploy.
      A favourite of dictatorships the world over.

  5. Useless Knob Idiot Party

  6. ‘Meanwhile, UKIP Gloucestershire County Council candidate John Sullivan has been accused of writing on Facebook that regular physical exercise in schools can “prevent homosexuality”’

    Yeah, that would explain why it’s impossible to find any gay porn flicks set in a gym locker room or communal shower.
    I’ve got to ask, did he read that back to himself before posting? I knew they were out of touch but what f**king planet is this one from?

  7. essexgirlbecky 29 Apr 2013, 11:58am

    And UKIP has the effrontery to claim that their putative councillors are the victims of a ‘morally reprehensible smear campaign’!

    Why hasn’t UKIP been vetting its own candidates? Is the party in sympathy with the views their candidates have published on twitter and facebook? If these views are contrary to UKIP policy, what disciplinary action will the party be taking?

    Farage’s failure to condemn these people or distance them from his party confirms exactly what many of us have long suspected. UKIP is the home of festering bigotry.

    1. They are: these people are highly representative of their constituency!

    2. de Villiers 29 Apr 2013, 12:43pm

      I am not sure how they can be unhappy when they are subjected to the scrutiny of any other political party – and when the results are unattractive.

  8. Notice the BBC is ignoring this story. Farage and his party of bigots are only doing so well because of the publicity they’ve been getting on programmes like Question Time and The Daily Politics.

  9. UKIP is the party of sad and lonely losers who do not have the ability or the will to behave with civility to their non-white or homosexual neighbours.

  10. UKIP has been trying to use dog whistle politics: sparsely publicised homophobic and racist messages heard by their target audience but ignored by the wider media. Or perhaps I should say “dog leash” politics – letting the party’s attack dogs have at it locally, while the leadership keeps its hands clean.

    This tactic is now backfiring, as it was always bound to. It has brought the party lots of activists: former non-voters from the political fringes, and exiles from the right of the Tory party. But it alienates voters in the centre.

    Nigel Farage has a choice now – rein in the extremists and lose some of the populist surge UKIP is experiencing, or let this type of hatred pollute his anti-EU message, his party and British politics.

    I’m not optimistic, but I’m always hopeful.

    UKIP = BNP light. They should just merge and get it over with and rebrand themselves with a new label, the Neo Nazi Party!

  12. Have any of the exposed candidate bigots in ukip elections been removed from their candidacy by ukip ? Guessed not.

  13. The more of this comes to light, the more people will see who they really are.

    Isn’t this how Nazism started?

    1. de Villiers 29 Apr 2013, 5:49pm

      No. Nazism started with hyper inflation in Germany as a product of the reparations demanded by the treaty of Versailles.

      It also concerned Germany wanting to expand into and take over Europe rather than to withdraw from it.

    2. No, it isn’t how the nazi party started, and their birth is a little more complicated than the simplistic explanation of villiers above. But they used similar tactics in their propaganda to turn people against Jews and others – which is what I guess you were talking about.

      1. de Villiers 29 Apr 2013, 7:35pm

        It was indeed, Marky baby. Far be it from you to score cheap points – it is true that the Nazi party did not start that way. But Naziism as a mass movement did.

        But let’s not trade cheap points Marky Mark! The point is, really, that the UKIP are for withdrawing from the Europe and the Nazis were for invading it. Quite the opposite to each other.

        I think that UKIP, really, are a bit extreme to want to withdraw from the Europe. It is only the extreme parties in Europe who want to leave the Union European. But it is worth reminding ourselves that they are very, very, very far from the National Socialists – even if they are a bunch of what David Cameron called fruit loops and closet racists.

      2. Spanner1960 29 Apr 2013, 8:06pm

        The Jews were despised by most because the majority of the population were poor after WWI and the Jews held all the money as bankers.
        See any contemporary parallels?

  15. antifascist2013 30 Apr 2013, 2:10am

    We anti-fascists should keep fighting the bigotry of fascists such as Britain’s UKIP and BNP, Greece’s Golden Dawn, Turkey’s MHP/Grey Wolves, France’s National Front and various others throughout the world.

  16. . . . an LGBT UKIP group . . .

    Makes you wonder . . . an LGBT group who joins a political party where they celebrate inequality and are against equal rights for LGBT individuals.

    Amazing . . .
