Ukip leader Richard Braine says he is 'getting a bit fed up with all this dickbraine stuff'

Another month, another UKIP leader ...

...

Liz McInnes, the Labour MP, said: “I see that Ukip, in their perpetual leadership contest that is rivalled only by the DFS sale in its longevity, have now elected a triumph of nominative determinism, a Mr Dick Braine.”

Her party colleague, David Lammy, tweeted: “I wish I could laugh at the fact that this man is literally called Dick Braine. But I can’t, because I know it will only mask the seriousness of his dangerous and vile Islamophobia. His predecessors would be proud.”

Mr Braine had earlier said he “often” confused Sadiq Khan, the London mayor, with the leader of the 7/7 terror attackers. His tweet was condemned by Labour as “unacceptable racism”.

The Ukip leader also told Sky News on Tuesday the UK should “look into” banning the distribution of the Quran.

(No, this is not a spoof.)

What the self-proclaimed leader of a "far-moderate voice of common sense" in Britain, a.k.a. Dick Braine, looks like:



If Mr Braine has any complaints, I think they should be aimed at his apparently unimaginative, or unconcerned, parents.

1. He looks like his congenital idiot brother Boris Johnson!

(But you don't have to call me Johnson...thank you Flip Wilson.)

3. And that "confusing" the mayor with the bomber was him altering his name

so it's only fair that people take the piss out of Braine for his name and stupidity:



UKIP is the hardcore Islamophobic rump. The ones who know not to say the racist bits out loud have moved to the Farage Brexit Party. The total number of votes cast in the leadership election was about 5,500 - about the same as vote for county councillor where I am.

4. "The ones who know not to say the racist bits out loud have moved to the Farage Brexit Party."

That's certainly been the attempt at rebranding, but even brief scrutiny of the garbage some of Farage's new intake of prospective parliamentary candidates have posted on social media, let alone what they've said in the past, shows how thin a veneer it is.

Meanwhile, Farage can't help himself and will no doubt cross the line again any day now - his guff/gaffe about Meghan Markle (among other members of the royal family) the other day is no doubt just a taste of things to come.
