Although the Haaretz article dates back to 2014, it makes many points that are as relevant today as then. The article is written from a jewish viewpoint but it doesn’t resile from dealing with the issue of UKIP’s essential racist agenda and the need to address it. I was struck by this passage:
"Nick Lowles, the inspirational leader of anti-racism group Hope not Hate recently wrote that “we believe that UKIP is deliberately stoking up a hatred of foreigners for political gain. We recognise that not all UKIP supporters are racist and that they are supporting the party for number of reasons. But when a political party deliberately whips up an anti-immigrant frenzy by using provocative imagery and false claims, generating a climate of fear, then they must be challenged.”
A very different attitude from Fynne who, despite having a jewish great grandmother never took enough interest in her history to find out about her experience. He might have learnt something.
