Interesting link re UKIP. The Northern League and UKIP driven together by the SNP and PC blocking Lega Nord from the regionalist group. At least some UK parties ahve standards!

Much obliged as always for the linkage Mr. Dale. The Northern League are bound to be a controversial addition to our new group, but they are in government in Italy and are a non-racist party who recently had Italy's first black Mayor elected for them.

No doubt some left wing rags will bypass the facts for gossip but that's showbusiness, I mean, politics right?

I've just posted this as a comment on the UKIP site, but I bet it won't be posted:
So that grouping again:

Dansk Folkeparti: anti-EU, anti-immigration, anti-Islamic right wing party
True Finns (Perussuomalaiset): anti-EU, anti-capitalist, extreme left wing party
Mouvement pour la France: eurosceptic but not anti-EU, virulently anti-Islamic and anti-immigration
LAOS (Popular Orthodox Rally): anti-semitic, anti-homosexual, "extreme-right", racist, xenophobic and ethnocentric"
Lega Nord a populist party described by its leader as "libertarian, but also socialist", virulently anti-immigration (especially from Moslem countries).
Staatkundig Gereformeerde Partij (Political Reformed Party): a sectarian Protestant Christian fundamentalist party whose past includes opposing women's suffrage and only recently (2006) allowing women to become members. Guess where they stand on gay rights or immigration.
Slovenská národná strana (Slovak National Party) describes itself as Christian, national and socialist. The party characterizes itself as right wing, but frequently described as ultra-nationalist, right-wing extremist and neo-fascist (because of its offensive and often racist statements about the Hungarians, the Roma, Jews and homosexuals).

and then there's the UKIP.

There's a clear thread in this grouping and it ain't pretty.
