Ukip posters are out to divide us

Issue No. 2400

Ukip has launched its campaign for the European elections in May with a series of offensive billboards. 

One stirs up racism with the claim that 26 million people looking for work in Europe are after your job. Another shows a British construction worker reduced to begging on the streets because of immigrant labour from the European Union.

But Ukip cares nothing about ordinary people. Its campaign director is former Tory MP Neil Hamilton, who lost his seat after a cash for questions scandal.

The campaign is funded by millionaire and former Tory Paul Sykes out of his £650 million fortune.
