UKIP's Polish colleague

Maciej Giertych – MEP for Poland’s Liga Polskich Rodzin party – this week spoke in a European Parliament debate to mark the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of the Spanish civil war. His remarks were openly pro-fascist:

'Thanks to the Spanish army and Franco the communist attack on Catholic Spain was thwarted. The presence of such people in European politics as Franco guaranteed the maintenance of traditional values in Europe and we lack such statesmen today. Christian Europe is losing against atheistic socialists today and this has to change.'

Liga Polskich Rodzin, incidentally, forms part of the European Parliament’s Independence and Democracy group, known as Ind/Dem. British affiliate? Why, if it isn’t the United Kingdom Independence Party. What a surprise.
