Smearing Ukip an easy excuse

I HAVE lost count of the number of times Nigel Farage and Ukip have been smeared as "racist" and "fascist".

Such abuse goes some way towards explaining Ukip's electoral successes, as leftists and liberals have so devalued these terms that they are now just boo words to hurl at anyone daring to challenge their beloved dogmas.

The truth is that many of us just don't like being ruled over by EU bureaucrats and would quite like to see sensible immigration controls.
