UKIP blunder again

Social media is full of the latest gaffe by UKIP in which their South Thanet branch took to Twitter to criticise the BBC programme, Daily Politics for supposedly conducting a poll as to whether Nigel Farage has what it takes to be Prime Minister, outside a 'Mosque'.

Unfortunately for them, the so-called 'Mosque' was actually Westminster Catholic Cathedral.

But this isn't just a story about geographic ignorance, the assumptions behind the tweet are particularly disturbing implying disrespect for the Muslim community verging on bigotry. This is the true face of UKIP and one that people need to beware of.
