UKIP MEP, Nikki Sinclaire

It seems that it is Nikki Sinclaire MEP who has taken a stand against the authoritarian right-wing extremists of the EFD Group in the European Parliament. It is good to see a libertarian such as Nikki making a stand. Here is Wikipedia's entry about the EFD Group.

The EFD Group includes:

The Lega Nord from Italy. Here is an article about them from Time magazine.

True Finns from Finland. Here is an article about them.

Slovak National Party. Here is an article about them.

Order and Justice Party, Lithuania. Here is an article about them.

That gives a flavour of some of the unsavoury elements in the group and I can only applaud Nikki for, once again, taking a principled stand against right-wing authoritarian nutters.

If you were unaware UKIP are part of a bigger pan-European grouping because they get more funding from the EU that way.

Here's an apt song from the Hall and Oates:
