Anti-immigration party UKIP’s leader Nigel Farage came off the ropes throwing punches this week after his party and some of its supporters were accused of racism.

Farage claimed that he has been subjected to a Conservatives smear campaign because they are worried about just how much effect UKIP’s rising popularity will have on the outcome of the English council election on Thursday (2 May).

This week Government Minister Kenneth Clarke restated a claim by Prime Minister David Cameron that UKIP was full of “fruitcakes and closet racists”.

He said: “Some of the people who have assured me they are going to vote UKIP I would put in that category.”

UKIP was taken aback last week by allegations of allegedly anti-Semitic comments against one of its candidates. Council candidate Anna-Marie Crampton was suspended over comments posted online alleging Zionist conspiracies.

But Farage, who recently went on a filmed tour of Bulgaria to highlight that country’s millions of poor people would flock to Britain to claim benefits, said he would carry on talking about levels of uncontrolled immigration in Britain, particularly from Eastern Europe.

The UKIP party leader and European parliament member (MEP) faced a barraged of criticism Twitter for warning about “criminal” Romanians and Bulgarians on BBC’s Question Time.

The outspoken MEP told This Morning: “These are tough subjects to talk about. All we are doing is talking the truth. There is nothing in UKIP that is racist in any way at all and Ken Clarke knows it. If he throws this abuse out, we will start having a proper debate.

“They know that the British public are genuinely concerned about opening up the doors to Bulgaria and Romania next year.

“They are concerned because we have a million youngsters unemployed, we have wages being driven down and I am afraid a crimewave in London being caused by Romanians already.”

Maverick Tory London mayor Boris Johnson broke ranks with senior Conservatives party by calling Farage a “rather engaging geezer” who “sticks up for Britain” in his Telegraph column.

The anti-EU party is putting up a record number of 1,700 council candidates this week. The ‘Dad’s Army’ party has drawn support from large numbers of Tory voters unhappy about EU immigration and just about everything to do with the European Union.

In a BBC poll last week it emerged that as many as 350,000 Romanians and Bulgarians could be looking for work in the UK.

Immigration research commissioned by the BBC has discovered that 1 per cent of working age Romanians and 4.2 per cent of Bulgarians said they are currently seeking jobs in the UK in 2013 or 2014, despite Home Office restrictions on working.

Romanians have come under fierce attack since joining the EU in 2007, despite being restricted by the Home Office from working in the UK without a work permit or yellow card permit.

Many people mistakenly assume that Romanians are ‘Roma’ Gypsies (a minority group in Romania), which paints a false picture of migrants from Romania.

Majestic College has trained hundreds of Romanians and Bulgarians on NVQ vocational courses in Customer Service and Health and Social Care.

Majestic College Centre Manager told Immigration Matters that the vast majority of Romanians and Bulgarians have been excellent students who have completed their courses and obtained gainful employment.

Many Romanians and Bulgarians are arriving early to ‘beat the rush’ when work restrictions end next year, despite the need to apply for a ‘yellow card’ permit to study and work in the UK.

  1. That is not my experience having helped hundreds of Romanians obtain yellow cards. Employers have also been VERY happy and satisfied with Romanian workers.

  2. Sorry but from the Romanian Nationals I dealt with 99% of them are racist & badly behaved. The still living years back from the modern world. I have come a cross number of situations they commit crims ( low level )& have informed police , etc. But people from other east EU states are better compre to these people such as Poles, Hungarians, etc.
