PRESS RELEASE – Outrage at racist comments by the UK Independence Party


The comments from Nigel Farage about eastern Europeans, and specifically the slur against Romanian people came just in time for the British public to get a glimpse of the real UKIP which will make a lot of those who were thinking about voting for him and his party in yesterday’s election stop, and think again.

It’s been very telling that in recent comments from Farage he infers that those from Eastern Europe, and he always mentions Bulgaria and Romania specifically, are not the same as us, unlike the French and the Germans. This is plain racism, and is not acceptable to the vast majority of the British public.

We in the European Federalist Party UK will continue to promote a federalist agenda of an open and welcoming society in the UK.

The European Federalist Party (EFP) is the pan-European party for a more democratic, united and solidary Europe: a Europe of the people and for the people. The EFP was founded in 2011 in Paris by citizens from all over Europe and has since developed into a cross-border movement with thousands of members, supporters and chapters in 18 EU states. The EFP was instrumental in the introduction of several key laws and reforms in the EU, including improvements to the Lisbon treaty, the European Citizens’ Initiative and the EU roaming regulation.
