  • UKIP Leader Gerard Batten Calls For A Terrorism Memorial Day

    Posted on May 22

    UKIP Leader Gerard Batten said this today:

    “On the anniversary of the Manchester Arena attack and the murder of Lee Rigby, I would like to add my voice,  on behalf of UKIP, to those calling for a Terrorism Memorial Day.

    “Over many years we have experienced a growing toll of victims of senseless acts of terrorism from different perpetrators.  It would be fitting to remember all the victims on the same day.

    “However, the day should not be used to express passive sentimentality towards these outrages but to focus our minds on the practical measures that need to be taken to combat terrorism and the ideologies that promote it.

    “Sadly, the roll call of the innocent victims of terrorism is likely to be added to, however much we hope not, and remembering these people is of no use unless there is a resolve to tackle the causes of terrorism.

    “Meanwhile we pay our respects and offer our sympathies to the victims and families of people such as the Manchester bombing and Lee Rigby”.

    “This polemic is call ‘Teach’ but it would be more accurate to call it ‘Indoctrinate’.

    “This is simplistic, deliberate misinformation, and simple brain-washing techniques that the BBC has the bare faced effrontery to produced at tax-payers expense.

    “I was long ago convinced that the BBC should lose is Charter and this only reinforces that for me.”
