I don't, however, because I know that the few don't represent the whole.
The issue at hand here is corruption and tampering with the electoral process. That's not something exclusive to muslims or sharia law. This whole line of argument started because of the claim that Sharia law is taking over Britain which was patently false, and remains false. Nothing you have posted has backed up your case, it merely demonstrates an underlying fear or hatred of Muslims.
Yeh I can't agree with this title purely for clicks about an event that hardly constitutes an attack.
You don't even have to look hard for actual attacks.
READ and be less Ignorant.
Wow I can't believe I'm going to do this but....I'm going to defend UKIP, or at least put people in the right about it. UKIP are not an inherently racist party, they are just anti multiculture and anti EU. That's it though....no nazi affiliations and no racist policies.
I think people are confused because they don't actually know what multiculturalism actually is in Britan. Multiculturalism is simply a political idea that means people shouldn't have to give up their own culture in order to become British leading to a more integrated population. What this has led to over the past decade or 2 is the perception that British law now protects other cultures more than it protects our own indigenous culture.
Obviously this perception is wrong but when you get sensationalist journalism like we have in the UK people think it's true. UKIP at it's core is about protecting British sovereignty which is why it wants us out of the EU, not because they hate the idea of foreigners but because they think it's a corrupt waste of cash that erodes British law.
I'm sure UKIP may have racists in it but the party does not support racism. It's not to be lumped in with the BNP who on one hand pretend to be legitimate party but behind closed doors are relatively evil bastards who think they are getting away with it. Nigel Farage is a bit of a clown but I'm pretty sure if you met the guy behind closed doors and said "I fucking hate <insert racially denigrating slur here>" he would tell you to leave, where as Nick Griffin would shake your hand and say "welcome to the club".
Pretty confident UKIP aren't even close to being the third party in the UK, they do all right at Council elections and the EU elections but that's more to do with the fact that only motivated people take part in either, for the most part no one really cares and bothers to vote. If you thought voter apathy in the general election was bad you aint seen nothing yet.
/edit: On topic, the couple's political beliefs shouldn't have had any bearing on whether they are fit to adopt, it's a very scary notion. In fairness to the civil servant behind the decision the whole situation is a square peg in a round hole....but we know very little about the actual couple who I'm sure are actually very decent people, whether they would deny the foster children a proper education of their own cultural heritage we will never know. I know if I was the social worker looking at the situation with my future in mind then I might be tempted to do exactly what they have done. Can you imagine the headlines if domestic abuse did take place? "Council muppets leave immigrant children with racists!" springs to mind.
In the end the whole affair just makes us all look bad, regardless of political affiliation. Councils shouldn't be looking at peoples party memberships, foster children shouldn't be taken from stable homes and a couple shouldn't be considered racist for being in a legitimate political party. I guess these are the times we live in though.

If you go by the last general election results, UKIP was in fourth place. However, since then they have continued to gain considerable support and for nearly two years now, has been destroying the Liberal Democrats and replaced them as the third largest party.
Don't just take my word for it, feel free to look at the data yourself:

Props to manning up though, I'm also sorry for being a douche and needlessly over sensitive.Originally Posted by UKIP
A nativist is not the same thing as a racist but in most cases there's a lot of overlap.
