First up, high-profile UKIP activist Alexandra Swann, whose speech to their 2012 Spring conference was introduced by Nigel Farage. Supplementing her own crap with re-tweets calling Mandela a “terrorist”, Scrapbook supposes she would be happier in the 1980s Federation of Conservative Students wearing a “Hang Nelson Mandela” T-shirt:
This is how she reacted to Barack Obama’s tribute:
Meanwhile Rod Liddle looks to kills two birds with one stone:
“But for Christ’s sake BBC, give it a bloody break for five minutes, will you? It’s as if the poor bugger now has to bear your entire self-flagellating white post-colonial bien pensant guilt; look! Famous nice black man dies! Let’s re-run the entire history of South Africa. That’s better than watching the country we’re in being flattened by a storm.”

After Scrapbook exposed sick comments from a UKIP councillor on banning unemployed people from voting, the party’s most high-profile new recruit has rushed to his defence, claiming Cllr Tom Bursnall “has a point”, going on to say it is “dangerous” to let unemployed people vote.
Having defected from the Tories, 23 year-old Alexandra Swann was the star turn at UKIP’s recent conference in Skegness — with party leader Nigel Farage proudly declaring that “the Swann has migrated”.
But appearing to agree with Cllr Bursnall, who as the former chair of Conservative Future is also a defector from the Tories to UKIP, she continued:
“allowing people to vote on how other people’s money is spent — if they dont contribute — is dangerous”
With these views, Scrapbook was unsurprised to learn that Swann idolises anarcho-Libertarian philosophers and is completing a PhD in social Darwinism.
