Today I’m taking a break from my usual Technology Articles for a bit of UK Politics.
Last night Saturday 17th May 2014 I read a blog post somewhere (can’t remember where I found it, but I’ll add a link when I find it) about a UKIP Councillor publicly stated “poofters should be shot to make the remaining 99% turn straight”, and Party leader Nigel Farage didn’t condemn the councillor for his comment during a LBC Radio interview.
This isn’t really professional behaviour of a Public figure such as a Councillor or a Political Party Leader, but after reading this Metro Article Where the Leader of the Labour Party Ed Miliband has publicly defended racist comments from Mr. Farge. Nigel Farage publicly said that he was uncomfortable with people speaking a foreign language on public transport, comments which he later defended during a LBC Radio interview.
It’s not the first time that Mr. Farage and UKIP have faced a backlash for racist comments, UKIP are becoming just as bad as the EDL if not worse now that they’ve shown that they’re homophobic as well as racist. UKIP’s latest poster ahead of the local and EU Elections says that Nigel Farge will give Britain its voice back, but they’re probably now fudging the truth as it seems that UKIP will only give the voice back to Britain if you’re homophobic, racist and come from an era where being homophobic and racist was acceptable.
