The witch hunt against UKIP continues apace. A Women’s Aid chief, Katie Ghose was forced to step down after video footage emerged of her praising former UKIP leader Nigel Farage and a former UKIP MP, Douglas Carswell for their “passion for a new way of doing politics.”
Ghose spoke at UKIPs Annual Conference in 2015, when she was when she was the Chief Executive of the Electoral Reform Society. The footage went viral on Twitter and Ghose was immediately called upon to resign. Amrit Wilson, former board member of Imkaan, a Black, South Asian and minority ethnic women’s organisation dedicated to combating violence against women, and who also revealed she refused to share a platform with Ghose due to her pro-UKIP comments said: “I welcome it but Women’s Aid needs to question why this happened and make sure that future appointments are not only carefully vetted but given to people with substantial experience of the women’s sector.”
Meanwhile, Question Time has come under attack for allowing Billy Mitchell, a former UKIP candidate onto the show and selecting him to ask a question after it emerged he has previously been on the BBC show. Critics said the audience was biased towards “angry British nationalism”:
The BBC has a legal obligation is to promote social cohesion across Britain. British politics is dominated by an angry British nationalism. So we get angry Leave audiences in England, angry No audiences here. I don’t see what else we’d expect.

As we get closer and closer to what can only realistically be described as the inevitable betrayal it seems UKIP are being demonised more and more by the mainstream media and their establishment accomplices.
