Nigel Farage Condemns Schoolchildren For Making ‘Risible’ Anti-Ukip App

 

 

 

 

” UKIP leader Nigel Farage says the game in which players kick immigrants as far as possible to gain the highest ‘racism’ rating is ‘pathetic’.

  Nigel Farage has condemned a phone app made by schoolchildren featuring a character called Nicholas Fromage kicking immigrants off the white cliffs of Dover.

  The UKIP leader said the game where players kick immigrants as far as possible to gain the highest “racism” rating is “risible and pathetic” and “crosses the line”.

  But principal of Canterbury Academy Phil Karnavas said his technology class’ project was “just a bit of fun”.

  The student developers, who have formed game design company FonGames, say the game called Ukik aims to “make a mockery of extremist views”

  Mr Farage said he accepted criticism as a public figure, but elements of the same – such as the use of the term “racism” – were unacceptable. “

Britain’s Discontent Lifts Populist Party To Even Stronger Vote Tally Than Expected

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Voters in Britain sent a forceful message of discontent to established political parties on Friday, as returns from local elections showed an even stronger following than expected for the anti-European Union, anti-immigration United Kingdom Independence Party.

  The results had an immediate impact across the political spectrum, hurting the Labour Party as well as the partners in the governing coalition, the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats. The outcome is likely to increase the pressure on Prime Minister David Cameron to take an even harder line on reducing the powers of the European Union.

  The local vote is expected to presage another strong showing for the Independence Party in elections for the European Parliament when those votes are counted late on Sunday. Some opinion polls showed the party with slightly more support than the other parties in the European voting, which took place on Thursday, the same day as the local balloting.

  Coming on the heels of a strong showing in France’s local elections for the right-wing National Front party of Marine Le Pen, the returns provide a clear signal of the dissatisfaction of Europeans with their mainstream political parties, as well as with the European Union political establishment after six years of economic doldrums, which is still being felt by many despite hints of recovery.”
