The UKIP website contains some reference to the recent Irish referendum on the Fiscal Treaty. Paul Nuttall makes some comments. The website of the far-right EFD group in the European Parliament, to which UKIP belongs, and of which Nigel Farage is co-president, does likewise.
But UKIP's involvement in that referendum campaign runs deeper. Much deeper.
What Nigel Farage does not want you to know is that he has used this campaign to forge links with Irish Republicans.
Our photograph, which does not appear on UKIP's website for obvious reasons, shows Farage with some rather obnoxious characters.
Here we have Anthony Coughlan. He is certainly a vocal, and highly articulate, eurosceptic. But let us look deeper. Coughlan was a key figure in the Provisional IRA front group, the Connolly Association. He was also involved with the Wolfe Tone Society, which campaigned for the 'rights' of IRA prisoners. Those are the very people that murdered British soldiers, and innocent women and children in pursuit of their Marxist aims. Wolfe Tone himself was a convicted traitor, who died of illness before the just sentence of execution could be carried out. He once stated that his hatred of England had always been "rather an instinct than a principle".
We also note the presence in this picture of Hermann Kelly, UKIP/EFD press officer, who once wrote of Coughlan that he is "a good friend of mine".
Some interesting stuff here:
No wonder that Farage has remained silent on the matter of HM meeting the verminous murderer Martin McGuiness, he has himself been breaking bread with the same people. Look at the picture, and see how Farage is leaning forward to get his face in front of the camera. It is all about him, as far as he is concerned.
Farage, whilst he has never served himself, and whilst his father left the TA under a cloud of alcoholism, and tainted by his League of Empire Loyalist/National Front connections, likes to be associated with the troops. We wonder how his 'friends' in the mob will react to his closeness to the IRA!
Also present in the picture is Morten Messerchmidt (or Harry Heinkel, as Farage calls him behind his back). Messerschmidt personifies the EFD group. With his conviction for incitement to racial hatred, and the fact that he was forced to resign his government job after being seen "Heiling Hitler" in a Copenhagen bar, he really sums up this vile little group of violent extremists.
