A correction and apology to UKIP from Tom Pride
In several articles published on Pride’s Purge over the last few years, I have more than once described the United Kingdom Independence Party as a “far-right” political party. This is inaccurate and entirely untrue.
I unreservedly apologise if I have given the impression that UKIP is in any way a serious political party. I am happy to accept that it is actually an old-boys club full of fuddy-duddy intolerant, narrow-minded, crackpot dingbats who pretend to be libertarian but are in fact just a bunch of old-fashioned Thatcherite authoritarian cranks who don’t like foreigners and homosexuals much.
I sincerely apologise for any inconvenience and damage which any untrue statements on my blog claiming that UKIP is a serious political party may have caused.
I am happy to confirm that these inaccuracies have now been corrected online.
