UKIP candidate says parts of Gravesend are 'no go areas'

This Is Local London: UKIP candidate says parts of Gravesend are 'no go areas' UKIP candidate says parts of Gravesend are 'no go areas'

A UKIP candidate says parts of Gravesend are 'no go zones' because of the presence of gangs of Eastern European immigrants.

Janice Atkinson, who is a candidate in the south east region, spoke out after a series of raids by police raids across Kent last week in an operation targeting sexual exploitation gangs.

The raids in Margate, Folkestone, Dover and Gravesend led to a number of arrests.

The 22 suspects were Roma immigrants originally from Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

Ms Atkinson said: "Kent is on the frontline, both in border terms and where gangs are choosing to settle.

"The UK Border Agency is under resourced and immigration officers cannot ask EU migrants how long they are planning to stay.

"There are now no-go areas of Kent and this is unacceptable."

There are loads of areas within London and Kent that have gangs mostly made up of Eastern European immigrants I know as I have witnessed many with my own eyes through the work I do but, you aren’t allowed to say things like this openly otherwise you are labelled as a racist.
Fact is its the truth and it will only get worse until the government get their heads out of their arse and wake up to what’s happening in this country.

PS I am not racist and welcome anyone who wants to come into this country for a better life and contribute to our society however, for those who are only interested in sitting on their arses and committing crimes can be shipped back to where they come from.

The only "no-go" areas are power stations, agricultural land, transport systems, areas where natural resources are extracted, factories producing food and clothing, industries producing building materials etc. Try going up to the bosses and major shareholders of these businesses and tell them that these should not belong to a tiny few people, but to all of us. Ask the billionaires and multi-millionaires why they alone should own and control this planet's productive resources. Ask them "Shouldn't these belong to all of us?". You'll soon find out these are the "no-go" areas that matter. Capitalists have taken possession of this planet's productive resources and intend to keep them, and Nigel Farage, in the pocket of multi-millionaire Paul Sykes who's bankrolling his campaign, has no intention whatsoever of ending this obscene and totally unjust minority ownership. UKIP has a serious problem in that it attracts racists because it is resorting to the very nasty BNP tactic of trying to get votes through blaming migrants and 'foreigners', when in reality, the real cause of our problems is the capitalist economic system that presently exists. Make UKIP a "no-go" for your vote.

I am voting UKIP for one reason, David Cameron blatantly lied 5 years ago when he said if he becomes PM we will be given a referendum on the EU.

And what do you think voting for PUKIP in the local elections is going to achieve? Do you think that all those nice south Indian ladies in Poundland are going to be replaced overnight by Emma Watson lookalikes?
