10 Reasons To Oppose Nuttall

After months of profound crisis, UKIP announced today that Paul Nuttall has been elected leader. While he is not as well-known as Nigel Farage, his views are every bit as hardline.

Below are 10 reasons why we should stand in opposition to Nuttall's UKIP.

1. Nuttall has strongly supported Farage's 'Breaking Point' billboard

When questioned about the billboard – which some commentators compared to Nazi propagandaNuttall defended the poster as an “absolutely correct” depiction of the “deluge of people coming from the Middle East”.

2. He believes there is a secret coordinated Muslim plot to become a majority in Europe

In an article entitledStop calling them all refugees – they’re not” in his column in lad mag the Midweek Sport, Nuttall defended the much-discredited theory of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, before stating:

We are importing Muslims into Europe in Biblical proportions and if demographics are anything to go by, in some European countries they will either be the majority or close to it by the end of the 21st century. We only have to listen to the chilling words of Sheikh Muhammad Ayed to understand how dangerous this is. He recently said in a speech at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem that Muslim immigrants should breed with the Europeans to “conquer their countries”. And we are encouraging this through our bleeding liberal hearts”.

3. In a speech in the European Parliament, Nuttall labelled the response of the EU to the refugee crisis as “freedom of movement of Jihad”

In the same speech, made at the height of the humanitarian emergency in September 2015, he stated: “Let me make it clear: what we have in Europe at the moment is not a refugee crisis. It is an economic migrant crisis”.

4. He wants to ban the burqa

Nuttall called for the UK Government to ban the garment in all public buildings on International Women’s Day, 1 March 2016, “whether they claim it’s their ‘religious right’ or not”. In response to Amnesty International’s claim that wearing the burqa is a human right, he claimed “It isn’t. It’s just a piece of material”.

5. Nuttall has called for the NHS to be privatised

Nuttall has called the NHSa monolithic hangover from days gone by”, and stated that: “I would like to see more free markets introduced into the health service, because this is the way we have to go”.

6. He wants a 31% flat rate of tax, meaning the rich pay far less

Nuttall outlined his policy in a 2013 article ironically entitled “UKIP Champions the Working Classes”. The flat tax has since been dumped by Farage in favour of a “two-tier” flat tax which would be "seen to be fairer".

7. He wants prison conditions to be made deliberately worse and the 1967 Criminal Justice Act to be abolished

Nuttall has claimed that “our prisons are far too soft” and has alluded to bringing back “hard labour” for prisoners. He believes that the Criminal Justice Act, which gave “a huge boost for the rights of prisoners”, was a major societal misstep. He also believes in the return of the death penalty, which would make Britain and Belarus – a military dictatorship – the only two countries in Europe that execute prisoners.

8. Nuttall believes climate change is a "hair-brained theory"

Nuttall has also called global warming a money led scam, and has also called for Al Gore’s climate change film “An Inconvenient Truth” to be banned from schools. Nuttall supports investing in fracking rather than wind farms.

9. Was one of only 14 MEPs to vote against a crackdown on the illegal ivory trade

647 MEPs voted in favour of the April 2014 European Parliament resolution, designed to “send a clear signal against worldwide wildlife trafficking”. Of the fourteen MEPS opposing the resolution, six were from UKIP.

10. Opposes same-sex marriage

Need we say any more?
