Board of Deputies of British Jews: UKIP has “embraced” racists and extremists

For years now the whole thing with UKIP is that they weren’t obviously bigots and racists. I mean they were to a numbe rof us but the general perception thanks to the media was they were ‘having a go at the system’ and were ‘something different’. Although most people have no intention of voting UKIP, that’s not just because they have some dubious types in their party, but because their policies are either just the mantra of ‘Europe and immigration’, or utterly non-existent. It was however difficult to define UKIP as a far-right party, albeit a right wing party with far right support.
