According to a report in the Daily Telegraph today the latest UKIP “Migrants are to blame for everything” statement is that they are “putting pressure on the sewerage system.” The party’s immigration spokesman Steve Woolfe said this. Some may wonder why UKIP need any other Spokesmen at all, since the only Policies they appear to have and the only thing they ever seem to want to talk about is immigration.
“Ukip immigration spokesman Steven Woolfe stressed the party was not anti-immigration or anti-immigrant.”
Well, if he says it, then it must be true.
He said the public did not care about “colour of skin or race or creed” because they “believe in this country, they believe in Britain and they believe in its values”.
And what’s more, he said it with a completely straight face. Any howls of laughter heard after the interview closed when he couldn’t contain his mirth anymore almost certainly did not happen.
Meanwhile Ukip attempted to disown a leaflet labelled as produced by “Christian Soldiers in Ukip” which was being handed out to members inside the Winter Gardens. The leaflet made the spectacular claim that the “gay community” was on a “recruitment drive” in primary schools.
The state is allowing the sexual grooming of our primary school children for same sex attraction,” the leaflet said. Kids were being “indoctrinated” to “confuse their gender identity” and “think about and sing songs about same sex attraction”.
“What the LGBT (lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender community) is achieving, of course, is a recruitment drive,” it went on.
“As such people cannot reproduce their own kind they must recruit fresh ‘blood’ and this is best done among children in schools, the younger the better.
“The Government, through (Michael) Gove and (Nicky) Morgan, has given them carte blanche.”
A Ukip spokesman said the distributors of the leaflets had been asked to stop: “They are an affiliated organisation, but they do not represent the party.”
Oh. Just an affiliated organisation? Well, that’s all right then. Nothing wrong with being affiliated to bigoted, homophobic conspiracy theorists at all.
Some have suggested that if the sewers really are busting at the seams, it probably has something to do with the extra workload every time one of these UKIP people opens their mouths. What is meant by that is … unclear.
