Many on the far-right have suggested that many Syrian babies should be killed with barrel bombs, saying “a bingle’s worth” or “a right jolly snatch” of the innocent infants should suffer this horrid fate.
But the new leader of UKIP has taken it a step further – he believes that all Syrian babies should be murdered with barrel bombs.
As in – “the whole bloody lot of the buggers.”
Newly-elected UKIP leader Paul Nuttall believes Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar Assad are “on our side” in Britain’s fight against Islamic extremism.
Nuttall has been at the helm barely 24 hours, but has already made his mark, suggesting Britain “got it wrong… helping the so-called [Syrian] rebels.”
The Merseyside-born former history lecturer said he is “not a fan” of Putin’s approach to his own people, but that he supported Russia’s intervention in Syria.
The Assad regime is not “a threat to the globe in the way that Islamic terrorism is,” he said, in reference to Islamic State’s (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) incursions in Syria.
Questioned over the Syrian regime’s alleged use of barrel bombs, Nuttall said: “Well we seemed to keep Robert Mugabe in place for many years, didn’t we? I wouldn’t say we are some paragon of virtue when it comes to backing dictators.”
The UKIP leader’s remarks came a week after he argued Putin is “generally getting it right in many areas” of the Middle East.
But unlike his predecessor Nigel Farage, Nuttall’s foreign policies do not include a cozy relationship with US President-elect Donald Trump.
“I never backed Trump during the campaign and I said that some of the things that he had said were appalling and I continue to believe that,” Nuttall said, following his victory speech on Monday.
“I’m sure that many people around the country agree that some of the things he said about women were beyond the pale. I thought in many ways he had the right message but he was the wrong candidate.
“I wouldn’t cozy up to him, but if the president of the US comes to London, of course I will meet him.”
You have to respect the UK – a country where even far-right politicians who want to see trillions of brown babies barrel bombed into oblivion still feel it is their moral imperative to denounce pussy-grabber-elect Donald Trump.
