UKIP candidate threatens to shoot Conservative rival

One of UKIP’s candidates has been suspended for apparently making racist comments and threatening to to shoot his Conservative rival for the seat, Ranil Jayawardena.

Robert Blay, who was standing in North East Hampshire, has been suspended with immediate effect. The footage below was secretly recorded at a party event in Kent on Saturday.

In the video, Mr Blay notes his rival has been tipped as Britain’s first Asian prime minister. He then reportedly said: “If he is I will personally put a bullet between his eyes. If this lad turns up to be our prime minister I will personally put a bullet in him. That’s how strong I feel about it. I won’t have this f***** as our prime minister. I absolutely loathe him.”

Mr Blay also questioned Mr Jayawardena’s background, saying: “His family have only been here since the ’70s.You are not British enough to be in our Parliament.”

When asked how he felt at the prospect of Mr Jayawardena getting elected in what is considered a safe Tory seat, Mr Blay said: “It makes me quite sick. But I’ve always said in my constituency you could put a monkey out there with a blue rosette on and it would win.”

Mr Blay went on to accuse his opponent’s father of having come to Britain from Sri Lanka and “ponced off us … like all the East Europeans are”.

I reckon this was a set up, and Blay was too naive to realise. Hope the rest of UKIP learn something from what happened. The MSM is out to discredit you and if you give them half a chance, you’re done.

  1. farage must win his seat ,he has promised to stand down if he fails to win and that will be the end of UKIP. And yes, the media really are out to kill this genuinely grass roots movement.


  2. Meanwhile Miliband seems set to force a consitutional coup and seize power without being the largest party – without being actually elected.

    At least Blay has a plan that might just be effective.


  3. polls close 9.00 am tomorrow morning, NZ time.


  4. Were the UK still a democracy the outcome would have been clear: a strong Tory/UKIP government dedicated to getting out of Europe, ending Welfare, paying back the Debt, and finishing the job Thatcher started.

    Unfortunately it’s not, and Miliband and his MSM cronies are already preparing the ground to cheat their way to power.
