Glenn Pells, Nazi UKIPer @exposing_ukip @slatfascists @edlnews @tellmama‏

Officially (on paper at least) UKIP still maintain they refuse to allow members of fascist groups into their party, but a mere cursory glance at UKIPers on Facebook and Twitter reveals hundreds of party publicists who trumpet not just UKIP but a whole host of far right organisations across the board from the EDL to the FN. So much so, that the common retort /excuse of UKIP's senior members is that EDLers, Britain Firsters and BNPers are "pretending to be UKIP to discredit the party", even though many of the aforementioned neo-Nazi UKIPers are regularly liked and retweeted by top ranking UKIP officials, giving them the social media seal of approval.

Its over for Queen & Country.

That’s it folks! The inevitable has happened and the Queen and Country are no more. <br/><br/>Having wriggled out of her imminent arrest for crimes against Humanity, Elizabeth Windsor is now desperately scrapping the barrel for excuses and has come up with the last ditch attempt of faking Alzheimer’s Disease to evade justice.
