Another week, another round of nasty comments by UKIP councillors and officials

From the Sunday Mirror:

Ukip’s Chris Pain, leader of the opposition at Lincs Council and the party’s East Midlands regional chairman, wrote: “Have you noticed that if you ­rearrange the letters in ‘illegal ­immigrants’, and add just a few more letters, it spells, ‘Go home you free-loading, benefit-grabbing, resource-sucking, baby-making, non-English-speaking ********* and take those other hairy-faced, sandal-wearing, bomb-making, camel-riding, goat-********, raghead ******** with you.’”…

Peter Entwistle, party chairman in Bury, Greater Manchester, labelled President Barack Obama a Muslim, writing: “I bet he’s a closet ‘Imam’ as well!

“If I ever see him on a Greyhound bus wearing a rucksack, I’m getting off!!”

The party’s deputy chairman in Scotland, Misty Thackeray, “liked” a Facebook group claiming “paedophilia is part of Islamic tradition”.

He also praised far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders, a self-­confessed “hater of Islam”…

Meanwhile Tiggs Keywood-­Wainwright, a Ukip councillor in Boston, Lincs, complained about mosques being built in “quintessentially English” Cambridge. “Is nowhere sacred for the Brits in Britain any more?” she wrote.

“Bottom line is we have too many muslims in this country!”

Then there’s Huffington Post following up with yet more news about Chris Pain:

Ukip’s leading councillor for Lincoln, Chris Pain, has been embroiled in a second scandal over his Facebook page, with another posting that appears to show him suggesting that asylum seekers are benefit-scrounging terrorists.

Perhaps UKIP should just simplify things for everyone and change its name to United Kingdom Haters Party?

Although it isn’t only hate that UKIP has a problem with. It’s not so good with money either as Lib Dem MEP Chris Davies pointed out:
