Molly has responded to the announcement that fellow South West MEP, Lord Dartmouth, has resigned from UKIP. Dartmouth has said that the Party under the leadership of Gerard Batten has become “widely perceived as both homophobic and anti-Islamic“.
“I think it’s safe to say that I have nothing in common politically with Lord Dartmouth but finally I can find something where we agree. His resignation confirms what many have long believed, that UKIP is a racist and Islamophobic Party. As such it poses real dangers to community cohesion. It is time all self-respecting citizens and politicians took a stand against this hatred and challenged the generous platform given to UKIP to spout its vile views.”
