UKIP Official: Still Involved With Far Right Group

30 04 15

I blogged a little earlier about how UKIP are incapable of telling the truth, well here is yet another example of a leading UKIP official who just can’t himself when it comes to telling big fat porkies.

Christopher Gillibrand, UKIP parliamentary candidate for the Welsh constituency of Dwyfor Meirionnydd was exposed by the media as the vice-president of the far-right Traditional Britain Group.

It was the same TBG that shockingly said Baroness Lawrence, mother of murdered black teenager Stephen Lawrence was ‘totally without merit’ and should ‘return to her natural homeland with millions of others’.

Soon after the exposure, Gillibrand resigned his position with the group,with UKIP attempting to distance themselves from the TBG.

Aside from Gillibrand, another leading UKIP man was exposed by the media for his links to the TBG.

David Soutter, UKIP’s head of candidates is responsible for vetting all the party’s general election candidates, he was also an active member of the TBG.

Soutter, claims he left the group in 2013 because he was unhappy with the Baroness Lawrence comments.

However, we can exclusively reveal that Soutter is still involved with the group, acting as admin on the TBG NW Facebook group, was NW organiser AFTER the Baroness Lawrence comments and still takes part in online discussion with its members.

Speaking at the UKIP spring conference in February, Soutter urged UKIP candidates to behave in such a way as to not let their party down, especially when it comes to social media.

People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones Mr Soutter.
