London MEP Gerard Batten took over at the head of the crisis-hit party after Henry Bolton was ousted on Saturday [Image: PA].

Incredible, isn’t it? Gerard Batten was only installed as acting leader of UKIP yesterday (February 18) and already he has been forced to defend bigoted remarks.

This is the party that forced us into the EU referendum and set the agenda, folks!

It is the party of Little Englanders – the party of xenophobia – the party that promotes fear of anybody who isn’t white, middle-class, well-off and English.

The party of the small-minded.

And in the referendum, it persuaded enough of us into its small mindset to push us out of the protection offered by the EU and into a wilderness of deregulation, lost rights and lower standards.

When you look at UKIP – as epitomised by all its leaders, including Nigel Fuhrage – you look at the ugly face of Britain today.

Acting Ukip leader Gerard Batten has defended his description of Islam as a “death cult” and claimed a “significant minority” of Muslims are extremists who want to be martyred.

London MEP Mr Batten, who took over at the head of the crisis-hit party after Henry Bolton was ousted on Saturday, said Islam “glorifies death”.

He said Muslim migrants coming to the UK should reject the “dark age ideologies which many of them bring with them” through a literalist interpretation of the Koran.
