    My question was unrelated to yours.

    Farage is quite useful for putting a boot up their arses tbh.

    Yin and Yang and all that.

    This is what UKIP is now reduced to:

    Notable attendees:

    * the UKIP MEP who literally punched out another UKIP MEP in a brawl over the party leadership
    * that angry little man from a YouTube conspiracy channel
    * the anti-feminist YouTuber who once told a female British MP 'I wouldn't even rape you'

    Most people are not like these three people. If they're your definition of 'normal', you must live in a pretty low rent area.

    If you read the last of those three descriptions at least and aren't revolted, then I don't want to know you.

    It's hilarious that UKIP are so desperate to survive, they're now pretending to be woke in the hope of capturing a slice of the disgruntled manboy demographic.

    It is truly amazing how some people can't see past personality. Maybe this is why recruiting those YT'ers will work.

    Gareth Bennett—infamously kicked to the curb by Nigel Farage—has been elected leader of UKIP in the Welsh Assembly.

    Good on them for becoming part of the political process.

    So here we are almost 6 months later, and the wokebro rejuvenation of UKIP has gone absolutely nowhere, as expected.

    What were you expecting to have happened in 6 months to prove that out of interest?
    From what I've read their membership count is on the up.

    A significant surge in young people joining UKIP, and the YT personalities UKIP brought on board using their massive influence to launch big recruitment drives.

    Source?

    This... Calling them 'normal' is utterly absurd.

    It tells you a lot about the poster if they think those people, behaviors and attitudes are normal.

    I don't think that hole even has a bottom.

    But as for the OP, I've heard this story before. I would guess that as UKIP drifts closer to BNP-lite, then the bigots will cluster around it because the media still gives UKIP free publicity.

    ^^^ I believe that is called "fake news", he's one of their candidates now:



    Very odd to see a political candidate telling journalists to "get bent" and to "deal with it", apparently he still won't rape Labour MP Jess Phillips and won't apologise for stating that he won't even rape her either.

    We certainly live in interesting times, if either of these jokers get elected as MEPs then WTF????? I certainly won't be voting for them but on the other hand I would find it highly amusing in addition to being rather farcical.
