Farage responds to Speroni and Borghezio

This is from theUKIP site

Nigel Farage, Leader of UKIP, today contacted Francesco Speroni, co-president of The Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD), a group in the European Parliament, to demand an immediate retraction and apology following his remarks and those of his fellow Northern League MEP Mario Borghezio.

The comments, both made in recent radio interviews, were in response to the tragedy in Norway where seventy-six people were killed by Anders Behring Breivik. If no retraction is forthcoming then UKIP will suspend its membership of the EFD group in which it sits alongside the Italian political party.

Borghezio, described the ideas of Breivik as "good" and "excellent". Speroni has now said he believed Borghezio's comments to be "in support of Western civilisation". UKIP totally disassociates itself from the remarks of Borghezio and Speroni. The Northern League is due to meet tomorrow (Friday) to discuss the issue. In the meantime Northern League minister, Roberto Calderoli has condemned Borghezio's remarks.

Nigel Farage said: "I find Breivik's actions and idealogy of hatred totally repugnant. Anybody who would praise the political ideology of this mass murderer is morally and politically misguided. Consequently I have written to the leadership of the Northern League party to demand an immediate full retraction and apology. If my request is not met, then we will suspend our membership of the EFD group."

Good. THis is not meant to be a political post as such but concerning scumbags and the response to them

Second attempt to get comment on: I never thought I'd praise the leader of UKIP! Many Italians are ashamed of thses two.

Of course we are ashamed of these clowns- unfortunately their party is part of Berlusconi's Govern, another reputable jokes teller.

Good post.

Notice how Anders Behring Breivik, evolved from being called a terrorist by the press, to being a gunman? They were right the first time.

Read the comments, on my second to last post. See what people said about this.

It is high time Welshcakes. They should never have had anything to do with that racist rabble

They are a disgrace. Berlusconi is little better Andrea

I saw the comments Ren and I was pretty revolted by some of the fuckwits. The man is a terorist, full stop

There is a lot of scumbags of different political persuasions scoring points over this tragedy. Pity they can't be lined up and...

True. No country is free from these wankers.
