UKIP: Farage shamed by bad press into making press statement on Lega Nord

Too little, too late. Rest assured that Farage only made a statement because of the bad press that Borghezio and the EFD were getting on various blogs, the BBC and several national newspapers.




Let us not forget that Farage remained silent when Francesco Speroni - EFD member - said that weapons should be used on immigrants.

He said "all means" should be used to suppress the influx of people who are "violating Italy and her rules."

"That means weapons as a last resort,"
he added. See: LINK

And he remained silent when it was revealed that Borghezio and Messerschmidt had been arrested for racial offences.

And he remained silent when it was revealed that a Lega Nord MEP had called for racial segregation on Italian public transport.

Etc, etc, etc.

No one is fooled by Nigel's sudden sense of morality. A senior UKIPPER has already admitted to a member of the Junius Team that the statement reprinted below was Farage's desperate attempt at 'damage limitation'.


UKIP statement on Northern League

Thursday, 28th July 2011

Nigel Farage, Leader of UKIP, today contacted Francesco Speroni, co-president of The Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD), a group in the European Parliament, to demand an immediate retraction and apology following his remarks and those of his fellow Northern League MEP Mario Borghezio.

The comments, both made in recent radio interviews, were in response to the tragedy in Norway where seventy-six people were killed by Anders Behring Breivik. If no retraction is forthcoming then UKIP will suspend its membership of the EFD group in which it sits alongside the Italian political party.

Borghezio, described the ideas of Breivik as "good" and "excellent". Speroni has now said he believed Borghezio's comments to be "in support of Western civilisation". UKIP totally disassociates itself from the remarks of Borghezio and Speroni. The Northern League is due to meet tomorrow (Friday) to discuss the issue. In the meantime Northern League minister, Roberto Calderoli has condemned Borghezio's remarks.

Nigel Farage said: "I find Breivik's actions and idealogy of hatred totally repugnant. Anybody who would praise the political ideology of this mass murderer is morally and politically misguided. Consequently I have written to the leadership of the Northern League party to demand an immediate full retraction and apology. If my request is not met, then we will suspend our membership of the EFD group."
