Farage ally: disability an “epidemic” – Pride’s Purge

Extreme: The signed version of Thursday’s leader debate provided this interpretation of a Nigel Farage comment.

UKIP’s new friends in Europe – members of the Polish KNP party – think disability is an “epidemic” and disabled people shouldn’t be seen on television because we should see only “healthy, beautiful, strong and wise people on our screens“, writes Tom Pride.

The leader of the KNP – Janusz Korwin-Mikke – wrote the disturbing views on his blog.

But because his words were in Polish, it got little attention in the UK, even when Nigel Farage decided to ally himself in the EU with the far-right party.

Tom goes on to provide translated extracts of the far-right views espoused by these allies of UKIP – and let’s not forget, the Conservative Party is being touted as a future UKIP ally.

    Hitlers views have always been around and will continue. they normally exist in private in mainly Conservative upper circles but are kept in moderation. however when politics goes off to the far right like Hitler then you have to be careful as the country becomes a breeding ground for fragmentation leading to the deaths of all types of people mostly innocent as we so often see in the world today

    A conservative /ukip government would be the end of the uk as we know it we would be in uncharted territory we would become at best like Saudi Arabia or at worst like china we the majority of the people would be repressed in one way or another

    all decent people will look to moving to a better country wherever possible but with regret will get turned down as all decent countries as i write have a strict criteria as to who they let in

    i’m not sure of the long term of the uk other then it will be very bleak for many of it’s people

    Just when you think these nasty right-wing reactionaries can’t sink any lower, they prove you wrong.
