We're not racist, we just don't like immigrants......

It was interesting to see a UKIP leaflet produced for the recent council by-election in Wyre Borough. It didn't do much good, with UKIP finishing fourth behind the BNP. is the standard UKIP fare, but one paragraph is particularly amusing:

"Of British parties only UKIP voted against EU enlargement in the European Parliament that has resulted in over 600,000 Eastern European immigrants entering Britain. It is IMPOSSIBLE to regain control of our borders within the EU. UKIP will freeze immigration for 5 years and speed up deportation of up to 1 million illegal immigrants. UKIP is a non racist/non sectarian party."

You couldn't make it up…..

anon 9.15. What a silly statement.

A very short but interesting question has been raised on the loony forum, "What if Nigel gave up?"

The whole thing really does give the impression of falling apart.

Forget the loony forum. Have a look at the silly More to Life than Shoes blog for a fine example of UKIP staff member in a jealous rage.

Re anon 9.58.

Consensus points towards a quiet summer step-down.

Those of us who inhabit the civilised world should be grateful that Nigel Farage by his abysmal leadership and poor media performaces has single-handedly killed off his own monster. Hopefully the BNP will disappear from the scene at the same time as UKIP.

I see Nigel's cronies are making much of a Brussels pub joining in the "Ban Darling" campaign by putting up one of those posters showing the Chancellor behind bars. At least one newspaper in England reported that Nigel Farage had spotted the poster. It seems he is the only one to have spotted it (and got a photograph of it) because the poster isn't there anymore. Well spotted Nigel.

Anon 10.57,

They're not making it up are they?

Nigel's sycophantic bloggers have been unusually quiet for several days now. While one might assume that they are just chilling out, taking it easy the reality appears to be that they are running round like headless chickens while the Nigel leadership continues its collapse.

The longer Nigel Farage remains as leader the better as far as I am concerned. The whole UKIP nonsense has fallen apart under his leadership. He is the only UKIP leader who has ever succeeded in getting a significant amount of airtime on television and everytime he makes a mess of it. Give him his own show, I say.

I wonder if the moderator of this blog would consider opening a thread on which the craziest comments from the Democracy Forum could be posted. Leaving aside the nasty, prejudiced remarks from people who don't get out enough some of them really are too funny not to be repeated.

I disagree with UKIP's immigration policy but it's silly to accuse it of being racist.

Immigration is useful to the UK and provides useful labour. Those that want to stay, however, have a very raw deal. They are typically earning minimum wage or less, are living in exploitive conditions and have most of their pay docked for "accommodation" which really doesn't cost half of what is docked.

If we want to stop this abuse, curbing immigration is one way of doing it.

Maybe but UKIP do not express any concern about the plight of immigrants themselves. They make no mention of the exploitation and ill treatement that may arise here or en-route. They do make it clear howeer that they will be much tougher on those seeking entry and those who have not fully settled. It's plain where their priorities are.

What typical politically correct tripe spewed by the author of this article. In fact - I address you directly now - it is inept, dense people like you who raise the issue of race in immigration, which has caused much inter-ethnic tension in the past few years.

Immigration is a question of NUMBERS and COMMON SENSE, not race. You are the only racist if you want to be so obsessed with race.
