How does UKIP keep selecting all these nutters? asks puzzled Farage

UKIP leader Nigel Farage says he cannot understand how the party keeps choosing candidates with sociopathic opinions.

As yet another UKIP hopeful was suspended for saying something vile, Farage said it was ‘incredible’ that a party that ‘consisted overwhelmingly of nice, decent people’ keeps selecting racists and homophobes.

He added: “I can’t believe how many of these internal inquiries I keep ordering. What are the odds?

“And to think of all the lovely, tolerant, intelligent people that we could have picked instead. It proves, once again, that choosing candidates really is pot luck.”
