Right out of or­der

Daily Record - - NEWS -

BREXIT buf­foon David Coburn has de­cided Ukip is now too toxic even for him.

The Scot­tish MEP re­signed from the party yesterday over its en­dorse­ment of hate­ful far-right ac­tivist Tommy Robinson.

That even Coburn is flee­ing this cess pit in dis­gust is fi­nal proof of how Ukip’s an­tiIs­lam agenda has driven it to the very wildest fringes of pol­i­tics.

Af­ter all, this is the man who once dis­grace­fully com­pared Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment Minister Humza Yousaf to con­victed ter­ror­ist Abu Hamza.

That he now thinks Ukip have been hi­jacked by “ex­trem­ists” is telling.

The anti-EU party was al­ways laced with racism but that poi­son has be­come much more pro­nounced since the Brexit ref­er­en­dum.

One of the very few pos­i­tives from Brexit has been the col­lapse of Ukip as an elec­toral force.

An­other is that Coburn will soon no longer be an elected rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

Come March 29 next year there will be no rea­son for him ever to be seen or heard from again. He won’t be missed. UKIP CHIEF QUITS OVER FAR-RIGHT – PAGE 11
