UKIP deputy Leader Mike Nattrass, this week took another cheap publicity swipe at all things European.
In a letter to the Birmingham Post, Nattrass condemned plans to make Irish an official language of the European Union, accused it of supporting corruption in Africa.... not to mention it's roll in wide spread animal slaughter.
The final insult came when Nattrass showed complete disregard to the 450 million citizens, 25 member states and the many cultures which make the EU the symbol of diversity it is. In a statement which wouldn't be out of place in a BNP meeting Nattrass said "it would appear that EU citizenship has yet to be civilised by the adoption of British standards."
