SO AFTER THE ELECTION, WHAT THEN?

WEDGE’S WATCH

So whether Nigel Farage wins it or not things will never be the same again.

The threat of UKIP has dramatically uncovered the prejudice and bigotry against immigrants, ethnic minorities, gay people suppurating under the surface of Thanet society.

It is these attitudes which Farage has tried to exploit to gain power here.

But it has also brought together people determined to tackle and eradicate such attitudes.

This emerged at the Ramsgate meeting in which  the Nigerian gay activist Bisi Alimi spoke on Thursday.

The remarkable Bisi continued the spirit of the meeting by standing in the middle of Ramsgate on Friday with a sign saying: “I am an immigrant. Hug me or ask me a question.”

Quite a thing to do in the middle of Ramsgate!

What exactly people do next needs to be debated long and hard.

But a debate has started and maybe the next chance to advance it is at the UKIP: THE FACTS meeting in which the author Harry Paterson speaks about his remarkable new book “Making Plans For Nigel: A Beginner’s Guide To Farage & UKIP”.

That’s 7.30pm at the Red Hall, 11 Grosvenor Rd, Broadstairs CT10 2B.

Be there.
