Ukip hypocritical over free speech

THERE is more than a whiff of hypocrisy about a party that celebrates freedom of speech when a Ukip member talks about "Bongo Bongo Land" and labels women as "sluts", but as soon as it disagrees with a negative comment about it, it calls the police.

It speaks volumes that this party can pick and choose when the free speech argument can be used and we should be very wary of any political party that thinks it could possibly be right to use uniformed officers to crush dissent.
