Farage protests Ukip not racist a lot of hot air

AN observation on the recent noise coming from Nigel Farage and Ukip, angrily declaring that Ukip is not a racist party.

Farage will say that all parties, among their hundreds of members, can have the odd individual go a bit off-message. This is true.

But Ukip seem to have been particularly unlucky, as a steady stream of candidates have come out with unfortunate remarks about every conceivable minority, from Muslims to unborn Down's syndrome babies.

Farage can argue until he's red in the face, but methinks Ukip doth protest too much.
