Well done Buster Mottram for handing Nigel Farage a bit of a propaganda coup:
UKIP says it has “unanimously rejected” an offer from the British National Party for an electoral pact at next year’s European elections.
It says ex-tennis star Buster Mottram, a UKIP member who claimed to represent the BNP, made the “astonishing offer” at a meeting in London on Monday.
Under the deal the BNP would fight seats in the north while UKIP would focus on the south in the elections.
Who is Buster Mottram? Well according to the Observer, he’s their second “worst sportsman in politics” – after that well-known moderate Idi Amin – who is quoted as saying:
‘I hope Enoch Powell will never die, just as his namesake in the Bible never died.’
A former member of the National Front, one has to ask how come UKIP accepted him as a member in the first place?
