The latest UKIP member to be unseated by his own foul comments is Phil Bottomley, formerly chairman of the party’s Walsall branch, who faced calls for his dismissal from the party over comments about the Labour Party on his personal blog.
He had written: “Labour’s deliberate plan of uncontrolled immigration policy was a classic case of ethnocide… Put simply it is the cleansing or diminishing of an indigenous population by methods other than mass extermination. It is a fact that by 2070 the immigrant population will be ahead of the indigenous peoples of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.”
Whenever they write, “It’s a fact” without showing where they found it, you know it isn’t a fact at all.
Labour Cllr Sean Coughlan, leader of Walsall Council, said the comments were “abhorrent”.
He said: “I am calling on Mr Farage to disown his comments and choose a new branch chairman.”
Let’s see what Nigel has to say about all this. If he can’t find a new and original way of saying it (and he must be running out by now) then perhaps it’s time to invest in that app.
