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.
