Wes Slams UKIP Slur on Ilford Residents

Wes Streeting, Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Ilford North, has called on UKIP Leader Nigel Farage to condemn the comments of one his party’s rising stars about the people of Ilford, reported in the Mirror newspaper.

Sean Howlett was reported in the newspaper boasting that his party was targeted voters in Ilford, but added “You won’t understand what they’re saying”. 

Wes Streeting said: “These comments reflect the true face of UKIP. Far from being a plucky protest party, they’re a bunch of backward-looking loudmouths who hold strong and diverse communities like ours in contempt.

“UKIP boast that they are targeting Ilford in the local and European elections. If Nigel Farage expects people around here to even consider voting for his mob, he should apologise for this outrageous slur on our community by one of his leading activists. If he wants to pay us a visit, he won’t have any trouble understanding what I have to say to him about his party’s xenophobic attitudes.”
