UKIP’s party chairman in Thanet, Kent – the constituency where leader Nigel Farage hopes to become an MP – has said he “deeply regretted” his past membership of the National Front, according to the BBC.
Yet another UKIP member – and in a high position, at that – has admitted an extremist past. Many will see this as further proof that the right-wing party attracts – shall we say – undesirables, and many more will say they expect him to hold the same views as he had in the NF (the “a leopard can’t change its spots” argument).
Evidence is mounting that shows UKIP isn’t the ‘People’s Army’ that Nigel Farage says it is.
