UKIP Welcomes The Far Right

Following his appointment to acting leadership of the motley convocation of saloon bar propper-uppers at UKIP, new Oberscheissenf├╝hrer Adolf von Batten has inspected the party’s coffers, and found that, after all the Dark Money and diverted EU expenses had been cut off, the cupboard was bare. And with a six-figure legal bill following the involvement in MEP Jane Collins’ libel loss, desperate measures were in order.
I em not a racialist but, und zis is a big but ...

So von Batten, an unrepentant Islamophobe who regards Islam as a “death cult” - a remark that got him suspended from Twitter - has decided to reach out to like minded people and effectively turn the Kippers into a sort of BNP Mark 2.
We can figure that out from Kipper Central’s announcement: “Thousands of veterans are set to join the tide of those who have already signed up to the party under Gerard Batten’s leadership following a unanimous vote at Monday’s meeting to officially support the Veterans Against Terrorism Group … The motion, which was proposed by Gerard Batten at a UKIP NEC meeting where the Veterans Against Terrorism leaders were present was passed unanimously”. Veterans Against Terrorism is another far-right group.
That was clear from the accompanying photo which shows the logo of the Football Lads’ Alliance, “lads” being code for current and former hooligans. That the FLA was also on board was let slip by a VAT spokesman telling “Brexit is being betrayed, UKIP must once again rise to the challenge and fight for the real people, the forgotten people of this great nation. We the working class people, veterans, football lads and all other patriots must mobilize en mass and join UKIP, together we are stronger!” Tomorrow belongs to them.
Arron Banks’ propaganda site Westmonster has also toldInterim UKIP Leader Gerard Batten has announced a recruitment drive aimed at securing new members, including from street protest group the Football Lads Alliance - who are hosting Anne Marie-Waters at their next event. The leadership of the FLA have endorsed UKIP, according to Batten”.
She might be welcomed back ...

And while enthusing “The Football Lads Alliance have held some huge counter-extremism demos”, even the UKIP faithful concede “Though with anti-Islam Anne Marie Waters speaking at the FLA’s next event, there is likely to be some controversy over the move”.
... and two of this group might be joining her ...

But with the FLA, UKIP should know the score. As Hope not Hate has pointed out, “Another splinter from the FLA is the Anti-Terror Alliance (ATA) … HOPE not hate exposed one of the leaders of ATA to be the convicted terrorist Frank Portinari, the British Commander of the banned terrorist organisation Ulster Defence Association (UDA)”.
... after all, look who's already there

The direction of UKIP under the less than benign leadership of Adolf von Batten is clear: to fill the coffers, the Kippers will get into bed with any and every far-right group out there. It can only be a matter of time before Britain First and the White Pendragons are welcomed. After all, Bill “Viagra Golliwog” Etheridge, one of Batten’s pals, has already endorsed the latter group, which tried to stage a lynching of London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

UKIP is so desperate, it is now prepared to ditch the veneer of mainstream respectability and become an explicitly racist party. Like it effectively has been for years.

The Football Hooligans' Alliance is too down market for KipperWorld. Von Batten should court the Bank Robbers' Guild.

With WTO rules looking more likely, he doesn't seem to have read the news today.

Due to the ongoing arguments around student tuition fees, we have decided to implement a new policy for tuition fees.

Nick Clegg promised he would not increase the fees and went against his word.

So, we have decided that we will set a new tariff for fees and have decided that instead of them costing £9,000 we are going to put them down to £10,000.

I believe this will be a fabulous reason in itself to bring in new voters.

This lame D Abbott stuff is not just tedious and unfunny it's also nothing at all to do with the topic. Tim is far too nice to censor you so for fuck's sake do us all a favour and censor yourself.

I will ignore the snipes on here.

Probably lashing out because they can't get any.

Thank you for giving me a platform, Tim.

I would love to start having a platform on the BBC as I have never appeared on it before.

I need to dispell the myth about housing and immigration.

Anybody with an ounce of sense will know that immigration causes the population numbers to fall.
