We've already seen before how a Polish Neo-Nazi was hurriedly 'drafted in' to make up the numbers when EFDD funding was under threat. Seems Ukip are quite happy - very happy, in fact - to bring in Neo Nazis and Extremists - as long as they guarantee the future of the EU cash.
At the same time, what do Ukip do when one of their own employees, an ethnic minority, has factually based complaints of witnessed and verified racial harassment?
Well, if you're Ukip, you sack him, of course.

Farage's new best friend.
But UKIP don’t do half measures, and true to form Farage’s rabble lurched into yet another social media racism storm as a key activist involved in their Scottish manifesto launch was pictured in full ‘blackface’ make-up.
Twenty-four hours which even by UKIP standards, will take some beating.
Storch, one of two AfD representative at European level is reported to have been ‘asked to leave’ (read: 'kicked out') the Tory led ECR group after “tensions” emerged as a result of the German party’s hard line on immigration. This is not news to Storch, who entire family history for generations has been Nazi to the core.
In a parting shot, AfD accused Conservative MEP Syed Kamal (who Farage claims he wants to work with in the Brexit referendum) of “excluding” their delegation from committees and releasing “untruthful statements” via the ECR press office.
Tensions came to a head within the ECR after the German far-right party, which has capitalised on negative reactions to Angela Merkel’s refugee policy, made statements suggesting border guards should shoot women and children attempting to enter Germany illegally. It is reported that Nigel Farage’s team were quick to seize the chance to recruit AFD, brushing aside concerns about their “strong rhetoric”.
AfDs defection to the EFDD will no doubt help to assuage fears of another group collapse, as the Eurosceptic grouping now has an extra national delegation to strengthen it and bring the number of individual national parties to 8. (European Parliament groups require a minimum of 7 nationalities to qualify for the lucrative funding.)
Our insiders tell us that Glaswegian Duroch, who was on official European Parliament sick leave as a result of stress linked to racial bullying, reported back to his boss, Pierre Vaugier, only to be informed he was “no longer employed by EFDD/UKIP”. It appears that the party used a procedural loophole to end his tenure, by offering then quickly withdrawing a contract extension offer before he could respond.
“As far as we are aware Mr Duroch was sent a new contract by internal mail, but as he was not present to sign it EFDD withdrew the offer,” said a European Parliament source who asked not to be named.
“They knew he [Duroch] had been ordered by the EU Parliament medical service not to attend the office so they decided to capitalise on it by hiding behind an obscure procedure.
“It’s a really dirty trick, but what else can you expect from racists and neo-Nazis, it’s nothing they haven’t done before.”Duroch, who was called “untermench” by fellow EFDD advisor, Carl Joel Ankar, had become a “problem” for EFDD/UKIP over the past six months. After his official complaint regarding racism and intolerance was passed onto the European Parliament authorities it caused the Swedish Democrats to threaten to leave the group, jeopardising UKIP’s much needed £5.6m tax-payer funding.
Parliamentary authorities are reportedly in the final stages of deliberation before making their recommendations to EFDD/UKIP on the basis of the complaints and accompanying statements, however, rather than wait, we’re told the “highest levels” of UKIP ordered their Brussels based staff to remove Duroch “by any legitimate means”. By 'highest levels' - read 'Farage'.
Recruiting their new German ally was the only ‘positive’ UKIP are able to take from this week. Their Scottish manifesto launch has already been overshadowed by the publication of images showing former candidate, Jack Neil, wearing ‘blackface’ make-up and a clown nose. Something which is totally unacceptable and would constitute an instant expulsion from a legitimate party.
|Jack Neill, racially sensitive chap that he is.|
Ukip truly have excelled themselves this week.
Expelling an ethnic minority for refusing to accept racism;
Not expelling a high-profile member for racism;
And recruiting a woman who's known only for her neo-Nazi views.

This. Is. Ukip.
