I cannot credit that Cameron has remained silent for a further 24
hours since his initial retraction of his "closet racism" accusation
It has driven me to return to some of my old posts on my blog UKIP Uncovered ,
such as this from April 2003, linked here
which I also linked from Twitter as it seemed so relevant for the
debate presently underway following the disgraceful actions of the
Labour Council and its employees and agents in Rotherham.
I withdrew as a candidate for UKIP for the European Parliament in April
2003 because of my own doubts regarding the party's stance on matters
that today continue to be unjustifiably raised, in feigned agitation but
real fear, by the party's political opponents. I continued my own
internet blog following the UKIP affairs long after my withdrawal , and
hopefully by constant prompting played a small part in contributing to
what UKIP has today become - an inclusive and mainstream political party
offering Britain its best hope for a prosperous outward-looking society
with links all across the globe. UKIP may also have an outside chance
of restoring our democracy trashed by the three main poltical parties,
who continue to abuse our systems and institutions to this day.
Any political party might contain racists or other such bigots. My
watching of UK and European politics for decades leads me to believe
that in the UK the Tories and UKIP probably have roughly similar
percentages of such dolts in their membership, which itself is probably
exceeded by Labour. In all cases my guess is that across the EU these
percentages are below the norm!
