FINALLY something like THANKS for UKIP weeding out racists and radicals! FROM a TORY SITE!

Finally a sensible article about UKIP – thanks to the ConservativeHome website, torydiary.  It argues well that UKIP is not the BNP.  They have done an admirable job weeding out radicals and racists:

However, the number exposed as extremists is under 1% – indeed I think still in single figures. Furthermore UKIP should be commended for removing them. Chris Scotton, Alan Ryall, Anna-Marie Crampton and Susan Bowen are all out.

Harry Phibbs also says most of the UKIP candidates are ordinary people, not radicals:

Generally I don’t think seeking to compare UKIP to the BNP is an honest or effective strategy. The vast majority of UKIP council candidates are decent people, not Nazis. Where they are Nazis, they are being kicked out.


It is welcome that UKIP are being thoroughly investigated by their rivals and the media. They should be held to account. But UKIP are not a bunch of skinhead thugs. They are not National Socialists. The charge that they are in any way comparable to the BNP is simply not credible.

Rah for Phibbs!  If I were a UK citizen, I’d be running for UKIP in my local district.  As the NO movie would put it:  Happiness is coming, Britain!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
