With the appointment of Tommy Robinson as unpaid adviser on grooming gangs to UKIP interim leader Gerard Batten, the party can finally promote its official standing as United Kingdom Islamophobia Party. Next, they’ll be adopting the IHRA ‘working’ definition of ‘anti-Semitism’.
Not that things were much different under Nigel Farage who yesterday, after announcing his intention to topple Batten in a vote of no confidence, stated in an interview that his greatest achievement in politics was ‘single-handedly killing off the British National Party’ (BNP). Yes, dear reader, this from the same man whose party brought about Brexit – the greatest achievement of British democracy in most voters’ lifetimes. By his own admission, Farage confirms allegiance mainly to himself, rather than to British voters.
