Here is the Pink News article to which I am responding
Donna Edmunds, a UKIP councillor in East Sussex seems to think that it is the right of every business to refuse service to anyone, be they male, female, gay, straight, black, white, asian, muslim, christian, whatever.
Seriously? It seems like a week cannot go by without some member of the party saying or doing something absolutely fucking moronic. In every instance Nigel Farage states that the views of the individual do not represent the views of UKIP… well, sorry Nige but it actually kinda looks like they do.
I just don’t understand the logic here. It would ensure whole areas of the country would become de facto ‘no-go’ areas for certain minority groups. Is that really a world that UKIP want to live in? …what the hell am I saying, of course it is! Everyone would be able to hide in their little boxes, with with their little prejudices, growing and fermenting.
“Dear Post Office. I refuse to be served by a black Postman. Please send a white one and make sure no nigs, nogs, darkies and spear chuckers have touched my letters.”
“Sorry ma’am, the customer looks a little too homosexual for my tastes so I will refuse to serve him.”
“A Woman??? In a PUB?????”
“Well yes, I am a fully trained paramedic, I just don’t don’t ‘do’ Muzzos”
All that would happen is that resentment and bigotry would reproduce itself over and over until we are all one nation of little fortresses with ‘No girls’ or ‘No Armenians’ or whatever scrawled on the doors.
If you want to do business in this country, you make an agreement with the government to not discriminate against anyone, be they a minority, or a majority. It is not like the laws are only in place for small groups as White people, Christians, Men, Heterosexuals are all protected by equality laws from this same discrimination. What seems to be coming out of UKIP, one loose lipped lunatic at a time, is that the individual has no responsibility to society as a whole. Am I the only person who thinks that’s fucking dangerous?
