Diane Abbott, the racist Labour MP, told the conference that we wouldn't have an NHS without immigrants and that "if communities live separately now, we have to look at that institutional racism".
The suggestion that we need immigrant workers to prevent the NHS from collapsing is frankly ridiculous. There are many highly skilled foreign-born doctors that we undoubtedly benefit from an UKIP's immigration policy still allows for such skilled workers to come to the UK but there is no reason why we would need to import people to work as minimum wage ancillary staff when there are so many unemployed people already living here.
As for the suggestion that "institutional racism" causes communities to live separately - it is the multiculturalism that Abbott and her party have aggressively promoted that is to blame. Telling immigrants that they don't have to bother learning to speak English, adopting any element of our culture or way of life or making any effort whatsoever to fit in is what causes immigrant communities to become isolated. This is just one of the many ways that multiculturalism fails immigrants.
Red Ken Livingtson was also there spouting his usual left wing bile and playing the "Jew" card but the prize for the most offensive and factually inaccurate anti-UKIP slur goes to the UAF's "Europe Officer", former Labour MEP Glyn Ford.
UKIP are not a fascist party, but they are xenophobic, ultra -nationalistic, many of their members are racists, and they act, in my view as a recruiting ground for people who may later on veer even further to the rightAt least he got one thing right: UKIP is not a fascist party. But neither is UKIP a xenophobic or ultra-nationalist party. No doubt some UKIP members are racists but certainly no more so than the LibLabCon parties and of course UKIP is the only party that bans former BNP members from joining.
It's been pointed out before but it's worth pointing out again: Nigel Farage is married to a German. The leader of a xenophobic party is unlikely to be married to a German. But more importantly, it's worth remembering that xenophobia is an irrational fear of foreigners and I don't know anyone who has an irrational fear of foreigners, either in UKIP or not.
It was inevitable that the extremist UAF would turn their attentions to UKIP eventually. UAF has infiltrated pretty much every public body and political party - even David Cameron is a member of UAF. They of course see UKIP as a threat to their extreme left wing politics and a challenge to their authority. The last thing they want is a party in power that they can't control and that don't follow their far left agenda.
