UKIP party leader Paul Nuttal said that wearing a burka or niqab was too much of a security risk and barrier to integration. Labour MP Chuka Umunna responded that UKIP was a “hate peddler.”
Nuttal also said that UKIP candidates would largely not challenge any Members of Parliament (MP) who supported Brexit. Nutall did not confirm his own candidacy.
A Barnsley man has admitted he voted leave in the EU referendum ‘to stop
Muslims coming into the country’.
Interviewed by Channel 4 News the unidentified man said: “It’s all about
immigration. It’s not about trade or Europe or anything like that, it’s all about
“It’s to stop Muslims coming into this country. Simple as that.”
Journalist Ciaran Jenkins asks him: “Do you think you voted to leave the EU to
stop Muslims coming to the country?”
The man replies: “To stop immigration. The movement of people in Europe, fair
enough but not from Africa, Syria, Iraq or anywhere else.”
Apparently lost on the gentlemen is the fact that immigration from these
countries has nothing to do with the EU.
