Councils Cannot Deal With Disasters Like The Grenfell Fire

Brexit: What Does 'Getting Our Country Back' Even Mean?

Ukip's Burqa Ban - The Nastiest Type Of Politics

This is about the worst kind of politics. This is politics that picks on minorities who cannot defend themselves in order to gain votes and says more about Paul Nuttall and UKIP's polling numbers than it does about a small number of ladies who cover their faces when they go shopping.
