Not all of them.
But I have to say that the seemingly endless succession of UKIP people who have gone public saying things that sound pretty loony to me, is gradually putting me off the whole party.
I'm sure that nearly all people who support UKIP are serious and sensible people. But the constant stream of senior UKIPpers saying strange things, have led me to feel that if there were a UKIPper and an Official Monster Raving Loony Party both standing for election, I'd prefer the Loony over the UKIPper.
Farage needs to filter out the loonies. Roger Helmer is standing for the Newark byelection; that means that he's as mainstream UKIP as you can get without actually being Nigel Farage. His beliefs include:
Date rape victims can bear some responsibility for being assaulted,
He's in favour of the death penalty
He says "If two men have a right to marry, how can we deny the same right to two siblings? Are we to authorise incest?"
Well, he's entitled to his opinions.
I'd rather vote for the Official Monster Raving Loony Party.
