UK’s far-right party UKIP gains support

Despite allegations of racism and homophobia, Britain’s UK Independence Party is gaining greater support.

Britain’s EU-sceptic political party, the UK Independence Party [UKIP], is once again expected to win the highest number of British votes in this month’s European elections.

That is according to a poll published in the UK’s Sunday Times newspaper, which reflects UKIP’s growing support, despite allegations of racism and homophobia.

The party’s campaign for an immediate exit from the European Union and tougher immigration rules have seen it steal support from the UK’s mainstream parties.
