Nicole Bushill, UKIP’s candidate for Chatham & Aylesford in next month’s general election, has been spreading Islamophobic material, according to a campaign group.
Hope Not Hate have today named three UKIP candidates who they have found to be spreading hate material online.
The post highlights five posts Bushill has “shared” on Facebook, including a post railing against an “Islamic halal tax” on Easter eggs:
and other popular brands:
The Chatham & Aylesford candidate also turned her sights on Subway:
and sought to claim that “Islamophobia” doesn’t actually exist:
It’s not all negativity, though. The UKIP hopeful had some positive words about controversial Dutch politician Geert Wilders:
It’s not exactly clear what “war” it is “we” may just win, but given the results in Holland and France, somehow I don’t think “we’re” winning it…
After Hope Not Hate‘s revelations, I took a look at Bushill’s Twitter feed – and didn’t have to delve too far before finding an extraordinary attack on Islam:
DON’T PANIC! we’re not Islamic
Somehow I can’t imagine she’d be too popular if she put that slogan on an election leaflet!
Bushill has been approached for a comment.
