UKIP, and Race Riots over Repatriation

February 18, 2015

UKIP, unsurprisingly, have been very, very angry about Channel 4’s drama-documentary, 100 Days of UKIP, which showed the country ravaged by race riots and factory closures after UKIP the May election. It was apparently a gross smear, and the Kippers have especially been outraged by the real footage included in the fictional drama of various leading Kippers saying outrageously bigoted, racist remarks.

Obviously, it is absolutely disgusting for a programme like that, pointing out the dangers of such an administration, to include material that was actually true.

Like much of their utterances, it’s complete nonsense and shows what a completely twisted view of the world they actually have, quite at variance to reality.

I wonder how many of them actually believe that illegal immigrants and their friends and neighbours, wouldn’t actually resist being arrested by police snatch squads. UKIP surely can’t really be so ignorant as think that this wouldn’t result in riots?

Let’s look at an example. Way back in the 1990s the police and immigration authorities descended to arrest a female migrant, who was staying here illegally. I can’t remember the details, but I do remember that she resisted her arrest and was duly placed in some kind of restraining hold. If I remember correctly, she died during the arrest, and the police were faced with a mob of extremely angry neighbours trying to help her and release her from the cops.

Poor treatment and brutality inflicted on immigrants at government detention centres by our old friends G4S, including deaths, have also resulted in rioting, unsurprisingly.

It therefore doesn’t take much of an imagination to predict that if UKIP came to power and started mass arrests and deportations of illegal immigrants that violence and civil unrest would swiftly follow. Some of us can still remember the incident a decade ago when the permatanned Kilroy-Silk, who had formed his own, extreme right-wing anti-immigration party, Veritas, had ordure poured over him while campaigning for his outfit. His anti-immigrant stance was blatant, to the point where he asked one French worker when he was planning to go home. When the visitor from across La Manche said that he was returning home in six months, Kilroy impatiently asked, ‘Why not tomorrow?’ Given just how emotive the issue is, and the sheer offensiveness of the extreme right, who hold them, it’s not remotely surprising that some physically expressed their disapproval of them. Kilroy and Veritas have more or less vanished since them, as UKIP has emerged to become the major anti-immigration party, hovering up votes and supporters from the rest of the extreme and far right.

But if they won, and did try to put their harsh policies into practice, it would result in deaths, violence and rioting. UKIP are fooling themselves if they can’t see that.

Worse, by denying it, and accusing those, who do predict it of libel, they attempt to fool others.

Don’t be taken in. Give them the boot in May.

Chunky Mark Gives his View on UKIP and its 100 Days

February 17, 2015

I found the above response to last night’s Channel 4 film about the first 100 days of a UKIP government over at the We’re Still Laughing at UKIP Facebook page. Chunky Mark is, of course, something of an internet celebrity for his rants against the exploitative and reactionary Right, and his conversations and interviews with its left-wing opponents. Here he gives his own, eloquent and deeply considered insights into the film and the reaction to it from the Kippers.

Enjoy!:)

Tory Humour: Just in Case You Thought the Only Racists Were in UKIP

February 15, 2015

One of the political programmes planned by Channel 4 is a drama-documentary, 100 Days of UKIP, about the possible results of Fuhrer Farage and his blackshirts winning the election. The drama is about the events surrounding the first 100 days of a UKIP government. The story centres around a young, female Asian MP for the Kippers, who becomes increasingly disillusioned with the vicious racism in her party and its policies. The programme predicts the eruption of race riots, caused by the police rounding up and deporting immigrants. Interspersed with the fictional drama is real footage from the Kippers, including Godfrey Bloom and his notorious comments about ‘Bongo-Bongo Land’.

It’s already generated controversy. The Fuhrage himself was due to be interviewed by Paxo as part of the programme, but the Mussolini of embittered, pro-smoking reactionaries pulled out of it. Bloom and other senior Kippers have become notorious for racist and misogynist comments. However, just in case people start to think that it’s only the Kippers, who make comments worthy of the late Bernard Manning, here’s this story from Private Eye. It’s from Private Eye again, for the 11-24 January 2013. It reports how the Tory MP Conor Burns was extremely upset about the coarse nature of the humour in the Big Fat Quiz of the past year during the festive season. It also reminds readers of a racist joke he told at a Tory meeting ten years previously in 2003.

Tory MP Conor Burns led the condemnation of Channel 4 for screening the controversial Big Fat Quiz of 2012.

“I actually watched some of the broadcast because we are staying with family for the holidays and I found it quite distasteful. Sadly, this sort of gauche, vulgar ‘anything goes humour’ that appeals to the lowest common denominator in society is becoming more common,” Burns told the Daily Mail. “it was base, unfunny comedy and in some ways I thought its greater crime really was that it just wasn’t funny… I will be writing to Channel 4 and asking for its editorial explanation for broadcasting such unpleasant output”.

So what does tickle his funnybone? This the same Conor Burns who, as we revealed in Eye 1262, brought the house down at a right-wing dinner in 2003 with a gag Denis Thatcher had told him about how CHOGM did not, in fact, stand for Commonwealth heads of Government Meeting but for Coons Holidaying on Government Money. Boom! Boom!

This was, of course, coming when Dave Cameron was trying to clean up the Tories racist image, ostentatiously getting rid of Tories with very obvious connections to the BNP and severing ties to the Monday Club.

My guess is that despite all this, the racism and racist jokes are still there, and that UKIP don’t by any means have a monopoly on them.
