This isn’t new

Senior Ukip figures including Nigel Farage have expressed disquiet at the hard-right direction chosen for the party by its leader, Gerard Batten, and his open support for the jailed anti-Islam activist Tommy Robinson.

To my certain knowledge that gap in desired direction has been going on for at least a decade.

But then why wouldn’t there be differences within a political party as well as between them? A political party that contains both Sarah Wollaston and Jacob Rees Mogg has a wider gap, no?

  1. A party that includes Tony Blair and Jezza Corbyn has a wider split still – Blair would have been comfortable in Cameron’s government, Jezza would have been happy in Hugo Chavez’s government. (his incompetence would have made him fit in very well).

  2. So Much For Subtlety

    All decent people ought to be outraged by the jailing of Tommy Robinson. As they should have been by the earlier arrest of Nick Griffin for speaking out honestly about Rotherham.

    They may or may not be horrible people. That is besides the point.

  3. I still fail to understand why supporting someone who speaks out against the mass rape of working class underage girls makes one automatically far right. It’s a long time since the left supported the proletariat.

  4. No spewing CM or refusing to kiss the left’s arse makes you “far-right”.

    Simple as that. Most leftoid scum are too thiock to understand argument anyway.

    The disgraceful “snob-right” are also a problem. Types like Old Holebone and even worse Obnoxio should have enough sense to see thro the Secret Barrack Room Lawdog’s bullshit and realise that if we don’t stand together they will hang us separately.

  5. Bloke in Costa Rica

    Being anti-Islam should be as default a stance for decent people as being anti-boiling-kittens-in-a-sack.

  6. Bloke in North Dorset

    Interesting developments in Parliament today. A number of Wellman’s informed commentators are saying that we can’t have a no deal Brexit which means EEA+, or not change.

    If this happens can the grown us take charge again and detoxify the party enough to rip the hearts out of both the Conservative and Labour parties or will it require a new party?

    My feeling is UKIP is too far gone, but I’d be happy to be proved wrong.

  7. Tommy Robinson’s offense was prejudicing a trail – if he’d continued, the trial of the very people he was protesting against would have had to have been abandoned.

  8. jgh–Bullshit.

    He was outside a court which was sentencing. All of the arseholes in all three trials had already been named and details of the allegations recounted in the local paper the previous year. Someone on this blog turned up the link.

    The scum-crew of beaks showed zero interest in fair and unbiased trials when the old white slebs were being rousted.

    So fuck the Secret Barrack Room Lawdog and his crap. A crying shame so many have swallowed the bullshit flavoured no-sugar Kool-Aid. Including our host who –like the rest–really should know better.

    jgh – “Tommy Robinson’s offense was prejudicing a trail – if he’d continued, the trial of the very people he was protesting against would have had to have been abandoned.”

    This is putting the cart before the horse. Why has the state passed laws enabling Them to sit in judgement without letting us know a damn thing?

    But even if it is so, by all means, tell us all the people who were jailed for broadcasting the raid on Cliff Richard? How was that not vastly worse? Who was jailed for naming the people railroaded for the murder of Stephen Lawrence? How was that not much worse?

    There are two standards of justice in Britain – one for the metropolitan elite and what they care about, another for the rest of us. F**k ’em all.

    +1 “trial” was over, jury retired to consider evidence. Case will resume in a court when jury reach decision.
