Pussyfooting on Farage must end

"I DO not think Nigel Farage is racist, but..." This seems to be the accepted form of reproach from establishment voices, with very few people willing to call him out in a clear, unambiguous fashion.

The time has come to a grasp the nettle, just as Mr Farage likes to think of himself as doing. Mr Farage insists he and his party are not racist, yet continues to come out with comments which any rational person would consider to be racist.
