Ukip leaflet

No problem Fidelineish

But be fair its not exactly hard to presume the average UKIP voter response in these circumstances.

Ask me your average scientists opinion on the God / Science conundrum and I may find it a little more tricky.

I just wanted to hear someone try to defend it softly. I find it revealing. I particularly wanted to hear the ""just because 1 or several candidates say racist things does not make the party racist, lib,lab,con members have also said things does that make their parties racist??" argument applied (by a supporter) to this lastest debacle. <shrugs>

Much though I consider UKIP an amateurish party, lousy with bigots and homophobes Dawn, I'm not sure that particular leaflet carries the meaning you are trying to impose upon it.

Ok sorry to be a spoilsport. But on the plus side if a UKIP supporter does come back to the thread now the answer should be more interesting and inventive grin

God save us from 'inventive' Ukippers smile

Yes they are racist, and also very misogynistic. It's the party of choice for those blokes who mouth off in the pub about how all the 'darkies' should go home and the women should be chained to the kitchen. If you want a protest vote try the Green party, at least they're not hateful!

I didn't do the underling Fidelineish. It does rather demonstrate the homophobic principles being peddled in North Norfolk though.
The Staffordshire (I think) one was even worse.

Ah. Yes it was the underling I was querying.

You're right though, of course; it was quite bad enough without the added implication.
