I seem to have ruffled a few UKIPees in Rotherham and beyond, yippee! I honestly had not heard so much tosh before based on a narrow view of the world which fails to see its own contradictions, as with most oppressors.
After my last post, supporters of the recently elected Mr Vine’s have been trying to justify their nonsensical shifting position on immigration. Apparently, they are not anti immigration. So that’s why they were proposing a 5 year ban on immigration for settlement? Then their friends in big business had to point out their stupidity: of course our economy needs immigrants!
Do these people not know our British history? Clearly, the 5 year ban had to slip, to allow a mere 50,000 immigrants each year (yes dimness is spreading). Big business is still not happy so now UKIP have to contemplate letting more in! Where will it end? The saga continues…..
Apparently, I’m alright because I’ve been here for a while, just like Mrs Farage (a German immigrant). It was also ok for Mr Farage’s French ancestors to seek refuge from persecution here. Basically it’s the new lot; you know the Bulgarians and Romanians, who UKIP don’t want now. We’ve heard how this story ends. That’s why people like me, who are quite universal, are not going to be quiet. We are going to speak for the Bulgarians and the Romanians because we can and we should.
If UKIP really want to be taken seriously when they claim that they are not a party full of prejudice and ignorance, they should not select a candidate who recently told The Guardian that too many Muslims had been let into the country – “When they get here, suddenly – you don’t have to be born in this country –you can come here, live here for a while and stand as MPs and that sort of thing. We are giving ’em power which they shouldn’t have.” Am I one of those Muslims who have been given power I shouldn’t have? If not, who are they are talking about?
It’s shocking how closely UKIP members are aligned to the BNP and other far right groups – Even the BNP’s own website states that Mr Caven Vines candidacy is sending out the coded message ‘Don’t worry folks, UKIP secretly agrees with the BNP.’
In Lincolnshire, the 16 UKIP councillors would not reaffirm an equality pledge, supported by all other councillors, which recognised the diversity of communities in Lincolnshire and gave a commitment to serve all people equally. If this was not bad enough, the UKIP Leader went onto to say that UKIP refused to sign the document as it “pushes forward the chance of multiculturalism, one of the fundamental things that’s wrong with our society.” These are the very views that make me feel disgusted with this party and its closet racist stance.
As a Rotherham lass, please be warned. Don’t get too comfortable. Remember the BNP were also a passing fad.
