What is Henwood's current status? - He stood down as a UKIP candidate before UKIP had a chance to start a investigation. Had he not he would have likely been removed from the party as have been seen of others who have made objectionable comments. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/ukip-council-candidate-william-henwood-resigns-as-party-member-after-lenny-henry-racism-row-9303738.html
But shall we all remember one thing please.
The above names are from 2 years of UKIP history. If you looked at a 'whole' parties members you would find all kinds of disgusting behaviour.
It is the action taken by said party that makes all the difference. The fact is the trouble-makers were dealt with accordingly.
This video is a exert of a unnamed individual in the audience of BBC Question Time which took place in Southampton.
A man shouts down and verbally abuses UKIP leader Nigel Farage in a dramatic and pre-rehearsed manner.
But who is this every day Joe member of the audience?
But hey... UKIP are singularly the only party that has the odd questionable character...
ALL parties have questionable characters. It's how that party resolves such problems that matters. As I have proven to you above UKIP take action against there members.
Why don't people Google racist, homophobic and sexist events at other parties and see what action those parties took against those members because I know for a fact that most of the ones I talk about remain at their respective parties.
Please please please get into contact with a local UKIP representative or even me on Twitter (@ThomasEvansUKIP) if you have any concerns about UKIP or are thinking about UKIP and need questions answered.
Don't forget to vote in the European and County Council Elections!
