The rise of UKIP into the mainstream is allowing some very dark forces to feel emboldened enough to come out of the shadows, writes Tom Pride – and from the video that follows, it seems clear he’s absolutely correct.
He writes: “Here’s a party political broadcast on behalf of the United Kingdom Independence Party by one of their supporters.
“Be afraid – very afraid (if only of the hairstyle).”
In fairness, UKIP is only mentioned once, although it is clear the person on the video is a supporter. It’s not so much a PPB on behalf of UKIP as ‘With friends like these, who needs enemies’.
[If you want to see the video, skip over to Pride’s Purge. Vox Political had it up for a while but the message it conveys seems contrary to the Public Order Act 1986, which bans the incitement of racially-motivated hatred and it seems better to report it than repeat it.]
If you were a friend of UKIP before you saw that, are you still a friend of UKIP now?
