Clean EUkip up NOW make UKIP electable by people with ethics & integrity! 
The corruption of EUkip’s leadership
their anti UKIP claque in POWER & the NEC 
is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!

Clearly UKIP's Racist Reputation & the informed will remember that Nigel Farage promised he would be thrown out of the racist, xenophobic, anti Jewish and anti homosexual Pan EU Political EFD Group he founded and presides over before but nothing came of his promises and bluster!

Many will remember the support members of Farage's group gave Anders Brevick after his cowardly mass murder in Norway!

Many will realise from recent publicity just how dishonest and hypocritical the entire Farage cult is - he went so far as to pretend he did not know the Isle of Man was an off shore tax haven and believes we would believe he gave a gift of approaching £1Million when firstly he claims what a high roller he was in City finance, and would thus know all too well the IoM is an off shore tax haven and secondly he endlessly claims poverty as an MEP!

Frankly I for one do not believe Farage's well reheartsed excuses!


Racial slurs against Minister Kyenge highlight Italy's immigration strains

Since becoming Italy's Minister of Integration, Congolese-born Cecile Kyenge has suffered racist and sexist abuse. In a country where immigration is relatively new, her appointment has stirred a heated debate.
Since 49-year-old Cecile Kyenge, who was raised in the Democratic Republic of Congo, became Italy's first black cabinet minister this April, she has endured racist and sexist slurs such as "Congolese monkey," or "member of a bonga bonga government." Both comments came from members of the country's anti-immigration Lega Nord (Northern League) party.
Last week, a posting on the Facebook page of Lega Nord's town councillor Dolores Valandro went even further, asking, "why doesn't someone rape Kyenge so she can understand what victims of atrocious crimes feel?" Valandro posted the comment to imply that immigrants were responsible for most violent assaults on women in Italy.
The remark triggered immediate and widespread condemnation, even from Lega Nord members, who called for Valandro's resignation.
Kyenge, who has lived in Italy since 1983 where she also trained as an ophthalmologist, insists she is not afraid.
"The insults and threats against me are because I'm in a visible position now," Kyenege said at a news conference of the Foreign Press Bureau in Rome. "But they're really threats against anyone who resists racism, who resists violence."
Kyenge says the first thing she wants to do is change the law to allow children born in Italy of legal immigrants to obtain citizenship more easily. It is policies like that, in part, that have enraged Italians, turning them against immigration.

A game changer?
For years, similar racist and sexist comments have been quietly tolerated outside of politics, especially in soccer stadiums. There, stars like Mario Balotelli, who is a striker with Italian club AC Milan and a national team player, have had to put up with racist chants, which many Italians accept as "part of the game."
Last month, Balotelli threatened to walk off the pitch if he is racially abused again. In other instances, whole teams as well as individual players have indeed done just that.
But having a high government official who is not only of African descent but whose task as integration minister is to help advocate for often marginallized immigrants could be the real game changer.
While other European countries have been grappling with integration issues for decades, the arrival of immigrants in Italy is fairly new. Foreigners made up about 2 percent of Italy's population in 1990; now they make up 7.5 percent.
But when asked if she considers Italy a racist country, Kyenge is careful in her response.
"That's a tough question. I've always said, though, that Italy isn't a racist country. It's a country that needs to get to know more about migration and the value of diversity and maybe what's missing most here is a culture of immigration. Only after the country has processed these things can we say whether it's racist or not," she said at the news conference.
A view of a meal being served to would -be immigrants coming from Rosarno, in southern Italy's Calabria region, in the CARA (reception center for asylum seekers) in Bari (in southern Italy's Puglia region) after they abandoned their make-shift accomodations set up in former industrial sites in Rosarno, Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2010. U.N. human rights officials said Tuesday that they were deeply worried about Italy's deep-rooted racism against migrants following clashes in a southern town between African farmworkers, residents and police. Hundreds of Africans fled the farm town of Rosarno in the underdeveloped southern region of Calabria in trains, cars and caravans of buses arranged by authorities after two days of violence last week that erupted when two migrants were shot with a pellet gun in an attack they blamed on racism.

Immigrants are not always welcome in Italy
Signs of hope
And things are changing in Italy. "The positive aspect of this extremely unpleasant language means that others who are offended as much as she is, say so and support her," according to James Walston, a political commentator and expert on Italian society from the American University in Rome.
"When a member of the Northern League says that Kyenge should be raped, it's not just good, nice liberals who were shocked, but also her party's leaders who have to say this is unacceptable and expel [that member] from the party," he added.
Walston says the growing profile of immigrants here is forcing Italy to grapple with its long tolerated, casual racism. He points to the fact that there are three other members of parliament now born outside Italy. And that the recently elected mayor of the northern city of Vincenza, a Northern League hotbed, is an immigrant, who replaced an openly racist predecessor.

Last month, when an African refugee suffering from a psychotic episode killed several Italians with an axe in Milan, the Northern League moved into the neighborhood to recruit members. But they were chased away by residents irate that they would use the tragedy to encourage hate against immigrants.
