He is an Independent and I am aware of his history. I always knew he was not UKIP.
He is saying he has been misquoted but given his history I am not convinced. He is an arsehole.

No, I think OP's intention was very clear.

I read it that the OP confused the fact that independent (i.e. belonging to no party) candidates are different from those belonging to the UK Independence Party

Independent versus Independence.

However that doesn't change the fact that there are still nutters people with objectionable views in all parties - except this man isn't UKIP, has very worrying views and still got re-elected which is actually the most concerning part.

Leithlurker. You must have known this man was not a UKIP councillor.
Why did you post as if he was? confused Perhaps you are just trying to smear UKIP?

Hello

Just to let you know, we've edited the title (after receiving some reports from MNers) because Collin Brewer is an independent councillor, not a UKIP councillor.

Thanks.

Collin Brewer isn't a UKIP candidate. He is an Independent i.e. not part of any party.

I agree that the views he holds are horrendous and extreme. Goodness knows why anybody re-elected him!

Unfortunately every political party seems to harbour the odd candidate who comes out with, what most people would consider, outrageous views.
I wasn't that impressed with Diane Abbot's rant that "white people love playing divide and rule" and her many comments defending her choice of private schooling in terms of race. This from when she was Labour's Shadow Health Minister so both mainstream and senior.

The Tories have bad examples too of course - John Cherry who recently resigned over his comments that Pakistani children would fail to "rise to the top" at school and for saying "There are certain nationalities where hard work is highly valued. There are certain nationalities where they are uncertain what this hard work is all about".

This man has nothing to do with any main party but should resign or be made to step down. It is totally unacceptable to say the things he is reported to have said in the press today.

The labour party has a councillor who belonged to the BNP and another who was a councillor, but has now left.

What's new with racism/racists in any party. It's just a smear campaign against UKIP.

So boring.............zzzzz

Another UKIP councillor makes racist remarks:

UKIP race row fury: Councillor faces sack as Facebook rants are exposed

Politician accused over a series of anti-Jewish outbursts and a cartoon of a Muslim being spit-roasted on a fire fuelled by the Koran

A new UKIP councillor has sparked outrage amid allegations he unleashed racist abuse online.

Newly elected county councillor Eric Kitson triggered a furore over a cartoon of a Muslim being spit-roasted on a fire fuelled by copies of the Koran – which was posted on his Facebook profile.

It has also shown a string of anti-Jewish remarks including false claims that the Rothschild banking dynasty had controlled Nazi ­Germany’s leader Adolf Hitler.

In one vile attack, Mr Kitson, a councillor for Stourport, Worcs, following his election victory on May 2, said in a reference to Muslim women: “Hang um all first then ask questions later.”

In another post, he calls for a referendum to set up an English parliament, Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union and the repatriation of “six million migrants and refugees”.

The disgusting slurs will be a fresh embarrassment for UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage who has admitted that not all the party’s candidates for the local elections were properly vetted.

Mr Kitson even suggested that Mr Farage should consider uniting with Nick Griffin, leader of the far-right British National Party.

A Labour source said: “There is no place in politics for these disgraceful, racist attacks. It is up to Nigel Farage to clean up his party and avoid the needless offence and hurt these kind of remarks cause.”

In January, top UKIP official Dr Julia Gasper quit after her ­extremist and offensive views were exposed by the Sunday Mirror.

Speaking at the time, Mr Farage condemned Dr Gasper’s “unacceptable war” against homosexuals. Mr Kitson last night refused to discuss the Facebook postings, telling our reporter: “I don’t want to talk to you. I’m watching the Cup Final.”

A UKIP spokesman said of the councillor yesterday: “UKIP is investigating these accusations which, if true, would render Mr Kitson unsuitable to sit as a UKIP councillor and would lead to an immediate review of his party membership.”

This is the original article from the DNS, It gives a full account of what this bloke thinks, which is the same views expressed by former ukip candidates.

Where does it say that this guy has anything to do with UKIP? He stands as an independent.

How the hell did he get re-elected?

A truly shocking but not surprising article, any policy making forum that only advocates isolation and negative actions driven by fear of the "other" could come up with such despicable ideas. National socialism 1930's Germany coming to cities in England and wales sometime soon.
