UKIP is a racist party.
Debate Rounds (3)
I wish my competitor the best of luck and in the arguments which follow, I will attempt to persuade you that UKIP is, on the whole, not a racist party.
Earlier in Nigel's career, he said "We will never win the nigger vote. The nig-nogs will never vote for us". Ever wondered why they won't vote for you? Maybe it's because of those sort of comments.
Of course, we can't forget the Ukip councillor who said that the reason why England has suffered floods was because of the gays and immigrants. The list goes on...
As for policies on immigration, Ukip are out to see a dramatic fall in immigrants even if it's bad for the economy. Last year they proposed a ban on immigrants for five years! This would destroy the economy
My opponent states UKIP is racist,he provides evidence in the form of comments made by other's. These comments, although controversial, are NOT racist but are sexist. He has said that all parties have racist member's, and agreed they do not reflect the view's of the party which he suggests by the thesis. He also makes the link of UKIP's immigration policy, which in addition to being NOT racist, but also fails to be factual as UKIP wish to ban immigrants to claiming benefits for 5 years, the Tories' want to make it 2.
I argue the manifesto is the best way of judging.
UKIP received 4m votes in the Euro-Elections - it is ridiculous to suggest all voters are racist.

Reasons for voting decision: pro never proved that the UKIP party itself was racist, just provided evidence that one of the leading members was. con easily took out his argument.
