POLITICS: This is double standards

The item headlined “No home for BNP in UKIP” further illustrates the double standards that we’ve come to expect from this political party.

Paul Foyster uses the words “done something to kill off” about another distasteful political party, when a week earlier he was demanding a public apology from our MP for less.

No doubt readers will deplore the implication of Pete Williams’ admission that “UKIP may have picked up some votes from BNP supporters”, i.e. while UKIP won’t knowingly have racists as members, they will accept their votes.

Added to which, there’s never been a satisfactory explanation as to why former members of the National Front were engaged in Nigel Farage’s campaign in South Thanet or Tim Aker’s in Thurrock.
