A West Sussex UKIP county councillor has stunned local residents after he submitted a letter to the local newspaper, described as a racist tirade against refugees.
Tony Sutcliffe, the UKIP councillor for the Nyetimber division in Bognor Regis sent the letter to the Bognor Regis Observer and was printed on the 24th September.
Here is his disgraceful letter in full:
A number of your recent correspondents seem to believe that we could and should "do more" with regard to the migrant crisis.
The emotions aroused by images, especially of drowned toddler are entirely understandable but should not be allowed to obscure the facts.
Angela Merkel did not invite 800,000 migrants out of altruism. Germany has a falling birth rate and ageing population and needs vast supplies of cheap labour.
Saudi Arabia, which accepts no immigrants, not even fellow Arab Muslims, has offered to finance some 200 mosques in Germany with the clear intention of Islamising Europe.
The UK contributes more than twice as much as Germany to support genuine refugees in countries bordering Syria.
It is estimated 11 million people wish to migrate from Asia and the Middle East to Europe, which would irrevocably change the demography of the entire continent, including the UK, within a generation.
The vast majority of migrants are Muslim and Islam is NOT the "peaceful" religion of left wing propaganda nor is it a single entity otherwise the vicious internecine squabbles between the various tribal factions would not have turned Syria and Iraq into war zones.
The migrants we see daily on our TV screens are mostly physically fit and aggressive young men with a few women children and genuine refugees mixed in.
They do not ask for asylum, they demand food, shelter and free transport, while showing not the slightest regard for national borders laws or customs.
Does anyone seriously believe that having attained their objectives by force they will suddenly morph into productive, law abiding citizens of a continent whose entire civilization is built on Judeo Christian principles for which they have nothing but arrogant content?
Yes we are all human beings but to paraphrase George Orwell, some are more human than others.
If you approve of public beheadings, female genital mutilation, forced marriages, the stoning of rape victims and throwing homosexuals off tower blocks in the name of "Allah", if you believe that music, dancing and a glass of wine will damn you for all eternity then let them all come, but don't be surprised if you're misguided charity is spat back in your faces.
Having spent six years as a member of a despised minority (white, English) in Camberwell SE5 I have no wish to repeat the experience here in Bognor Regis.
Colonialism is anathema to the "intelligentsia" so why would it be a good idea to invite our spiritual and ideological enemies to colonize our country?
Bacon sandwich anyone?

According to the official programme, UKIP have lined up a special Dutch guest speaker for 2:30pm today, Dutch MP Joram Van Klaveren.
UKIP have formed a working alliance with two Dutch MP's Van Klaveren and Louis Bontes who represent the VoorNederland (VNL) party in the Dutch parliament.
The VNL are a fairly new party on the Dutch political scene, in fact they were only formed in April last year.
VoorNederland have a right wing, anti EU, anti immigration agenda, so they are perfect bedfellows for the xenophobes in UKIP.
However, VoorNederland has a murky history. It is a splinter of the racist PVV party lead by Islamophobe Geert Wilders. Bontes has been a Dutch MP since 2010, representing the PVV until just last year when he was expelled from the party after a clash with Wilders.
Like Bontes, Van Klaveren also became an MP in 2010, however he remained loyal to Geert Wilders until March of this year.
Together, along with a third former PVV MP Johan Driessen they formed the fledgling VNL.
VoorNederland currently have no representation in the EU, but Farage is possibly looking to the future, gathering round him as many working partners as possible to further his anti EU, anti immigrant message.

Kirklees UKIP have embraced a disgraced former councillor who was convicted for benefit fraud.
Tony Brice, a former Conservative councillor for the Lindley ward on Kirklees council pleaded guilty to three counts of benefit fraud totalling nearly £3,000 in 2011.
Brice was first elected in 2004 and held the seat until 2010, losing to the Lib Dem candidate, however he won the seat back just a year later, holding the seat until May of this year.
The benefit cheat was given a curfew and ordered to carry out 120 hours of unpaid community work at a hearing at Halifax Magistrates Court in 2012. The crooked councillor was also ordered to pay nearly £2,000 in costs.
Brice was able to retain his position on the council as an Independent following his expulsion from The Conservative Party in December 2011.
The Tories readmitted the benefits cheat back to the fold just one year and six months later, yet he still remained as an Independent councillor.
Following his defeat in 2015, Brice switched his support to UKIP and began to attend local party meetings.
Shortly after the switch, Brice was nominated to the position of "Group Election Advisor" despite being fully aware of his conviction.
Hope not hate revealed in May that UKIP in Kirklees attempted to cover up nominations made to the party by former BNP candidates and organisers.
Kirklees UKIP appear to have very low standards.

A controversial UKIP candidate has been promoted to the position of Plymouth UKIP chairman.
Peter Endean, UKIP candidate for the Plympton Erle ward and Plymouth UKIP communications manager was forced to apologise after he posted sick messages on Twitter, poking fun at the recent tragedies that saw hundreds of migrants drown in the Mediterranean Sea.
The posting showed an image of some of the survivors with the wording "Labour's new floating voters.Coming to a country near you soon".
Endean was promoted to the position after the existing chairman, David Salmon quit the post after eight years in charge.

A leading UKIP official has quit his post as Northern Ireland regional chairman following internal squabbling within the party.
Newry, Mourne and Down councillor Henry Reilly resigned from his position after his relationship with UKIP Northern Ireland Assembly member David McNarry deteriorated beyond repair.
Reilly confirmed his resignation to local media, telling them:
"It's no secret that Mr McNarry and I had a very, very strained relationship"
Reilly also snubbed his party leader Nigel Farage after failing to attend the Northern Irish launch of UKIP's campaign to leave the European Union, held at the start of the week.
UKIP HQ is desperate to resolve the dispute which looks like tearing the party apart in Northern Ireland.

A leading UKIP politician has caused outrage after he labelled the parents of drowned toddler Aylan Kurdi as "irresponsible".
Reilly, who is the UKIP chairman for Northern Ireland and was UKIP's parliamentary candidate for the South Down constituency wrote the offensive post on Facebook.
Aylan Kurdi who was aged just three years old drowned along with his mother Rehan and his five-year-old brother Ghalib were among 12 people who drowned after two boats capsized while trying to reach the Greek island of Kos from Turkey.
Henry Reilly declared his support for the Assad regime in Syria back in 2013 and it seems his disgusting views haven't changed much.

I've written about Vesper Hunter before, if you can remember she is the former Hertfordshire UKIP chairwoman along with being an official candidate for the party.
In the past, Vesper has never been afraid to air her views, even if they are contrary to those held buy the UKIP leadership, both regionally and nationally.
Vesper has apparently had enough and has thankfully seen the light, this time over the total lack of compassion shown by UKIP towards the Syrian refugee crisis.
Sadly, most in the xenophobic party feel very different.
