The new BNP

York Press: The new BNP The new BNP

IT’S OFFICIAL – UKIP’s racist agenda has been declared, confirming its position as the new BNP.

The UKIP EU-out campaign aims at capping migration on the misguided notion that UK jobs will be protected.

It fails to acknowledge the huge benefits and employment for the UK economy that the EU single market has brought through inward investment and free trade opportunities that would be at risk on leaving the EU.

The recent announcement by German firm Siemens to set up a manufacturing unit for wind turbine production in Hull is a case in point.

What a hypocrite Nigel Farage is in allegedly employs his German PA/ wife reportedly from his MEP expense account because, as he stated to BBC’s Nick Robinson, there is no one sufficiently competent in the UK to take on such a demanding role – complete bunkum.

People who are concerned about the prospects for a marginal, inwardly focused little England that has lost its way in the world being cast adrift on a UKIP raft should consider electing MEPs who can make positive contributions for change from within, and reject the likes of the self-opinionated Farage and co, whose views reside in a past century.

Martin Nichols, Skipwith, York.

The reason this country has got to the situation where one cannot mention immigrants without being labelled racist is entirely the making of such mealy mouthed nutcases such as the letter writer Martin Nichols, England is set to become the most populated Country in Europe, FACT, and none of the three main political party's are doing anything about it.

Well CHISSY1, it's already clear how many sensible people will be voting UKIP on May 22nd. - None. Sensible and UKIP are not words that can appear in the same sentence.

Ukip's leadership know that their party is root and branch racist, They have no problem with it, all they ask is that the candidates stay schtum about their views to create an illusion of respectability to the public, but some of them blurt it out anyway, Andres Lampitt is the most recent in a long line.

The video showing UKIP poster boy Andres Lampitt was still on the UKIP website at lunchtime. Lampitt is shown whinging about immigrants working here without mentioning the fact that he too is an immigrant working here. Whether or not he will be prosecuted for the repellent views he tweeted yesterday remains to be seen. He has not yet been sacked from UKIP, just suspended

On top of that The Mail reported that founder of UKIP, Dr Alan Sked, had described Mr Farage as ‘alcoholic, dim and racist’ and repeated claims he first a decade ago – which Mr Farage denies – that the UKIP leader had referred to black people as ‘n******.
Then there was an article in the Telegraph saying that UKIP is worse than the BNP because at lease Griffin has the courage of his racist convictions. Poor old UKIP, even the right wing press is turning on them, and just when they had got rid of Godfrey Bloom and thought the worst was behind them.

My prediction is that more UKIP racists will be uncovered before the Euro elections

When I see the UKIP politicians, especially Mr Farage in action, see their crass advertising campaign and then hear the raucous shouts of 'Hear, hear' from those fellow citizens who have not stopped to think for a couple of minutes then I despair. Do so many Brits really want to put their and their children's futures into the hands of middle-class pub bores with no real ideas of economics or social reality who want to take us back to an imaginary world of the 1950's where one knew one's place, where just a few immigrants lurked about furtively in the darker corners of London and where schoolboys all got a damned good thrashing every second day? Well, I do not! I would like all the admirers of the crass posters and the fans of Farage to ask themselves WHY US and Indian and Chinese corporations invest heavily here - it's not because we are jolly fine chaps but because we are a low-pay, English speaking springboard to the EU. Once we were outside the EU the investment would melt away. Farage has private means , stoked by the tax payers, but wjat about the 100 00s who would be jobless if we quit the EU?

"England is set to become the most populated country in Europe, FACT..." more populated than Germany? So it's hardly a fact is it Dr Robert? I thought doctors were supposed to undertake evidence-based practice.

Dr Robert had it right and the other parties are all in it together and have done nothing and can do nothing about EU immigration. (Or other EU legislation not in our interest)
So, UKIP are all racist because of one candidate who has been suspended and no doubt will be outed from UKIP.
Jonothon, it was a member of the Conservative party who used the N word!
Bill Galbraith asked why the Conservatives had to choose a N***** from Birmingham to represent Cheltenham. You can check out what happened to Lord Taylor of Warwick if you wish. My point is that you pick on this story to scare people off UKIP, just as you choose to scare people about AGW!.
Tell you what; not having those wind turbines in Humberside will be a vote winner, as will keeping Eggborough power station open, running on cheap and plentiful coal.
Nigel v Nick: Remind us who was the winner please!

You may be right about the Tory, After all many of the Ukip racists are former Tories, but don't try to imply that I am wrong, I am not.

The quote about Farage was NOT from me. it was from the Daily Mail who quoted Dr Alan Sked. Dr Sked was the original founder of UKIP but who left when it became a racist pary.
If you disagree take it up with the Mail, not with me

Nor is it true as you imply that Lampitt is an isolated example. What about UKIP Councillor Peter Lagoda, and the allegations of antisemitism against Ann Marie Crampton, plus all the UKIPpers dismissed for links to Nazi organisations? The examples are legion and I predict that more will come to light

Dr Robert, your second comment does not make sense. If you are claiming that all those who disagree with you are in some way connected to the Labour Paty you are incorrect, as I have no connection with them whatsoever. If you are claiming that all those with negative scores are connected to the Labour Party you are again incorrect. However, because your second posting does not make sense, it is very difficult to be certain what point you are trying to make. So, your first comment was an inaccuracy, your second comment is nonsense; is that what UKIP offers the electorate, inaccuracies and nonsense? If so, they won't be getting my vote.

Dr. Robert, as mentioned by Tug job, opposing UKIP and its poison is not the sole domain of the Labour Party. I do not have, have never had and will never have any connection with them.
BTW what have your party got against Lenny Henry?

Trolling on the comments of the York Press has rendered the voting scores meaningless. Does Coun. Alexander really believe this fools anybody other than himself? Vote rigging in a student's union may go uncontested, but in the real world it has far more serious consequences. Polls conducted by diverse organisations show the real popularity of UKIP and the City of York is hardly likely to buck the trend so dramatically.
