Strange Bedfellows

UKIP candidate suspended in probe
Robert Kilroy-Silk Eurosceptic party UKIP have suspended a candidate for allegedly suggesting the criminally insane should be killed.

John Houston, 54, was due to stand in the East Kilbride seat in Lanarkshire at the next election.

But he was suspended after his reported views, including the return of the British Empire, were sent to two Scottish newspapers.

UKIP spokesman Mark Croucher said those who selected Mr Houston knew nothing of his views.


Mr Houston is alleged to have said that the organs of the criminally insane should be "made available to law-abiding members of the community" and proposed the legalisation of drugs and the sex trade.

The document reportedly said: "We're looking for the resurrection of the British Empire.

"The problems for the human race - environmental and others - can only be dealt with on a global scale, and that calls for a radical alliance of the English-speaking nations, which they are uniquely able to do."

Mr Croucher said the main issue would be that Mr Houston's reported views had been presented as UKIP policy, which they were not.

Huckabee blasts immigrant bill as ‘race-baiting’
Posted on Friday, January 28, 2005

Gov. Mike Huckabee said Thursday that a bill to deny state government benefits and voting rights to illegal immigrants is "inflammatory... race-baiting and demagoguery." He challenged the Christian values of its main sponsor.

The governor said the bill "inflames those who are racist and bigots and makes them think there’s a real problem. But there’s not."

Sens. Jim Holt of Springdale and Denny Altes of Fort Smith, whose Northwest Arkansas region includes the state’s fastestgrowing Hispanic population, filed the measure, Senate Bill 206.

Huckabee, a Baptist minister and a Republican like Holt and Altes, said Arkansans should be welcoming hardworking immigrants of all races.

Holt often talks of his strong Christian beliefs, but Huckabee singled him out, saying, "I drink a different kind of Jesus juice. My faith says don’t make false accusations against somebody. In the Bible, it’s called 'Don’t bear false witness.'"

The governor said Holt’s plan to deny prenatal care to illegal immigrants goes against their shared anti-abortion principles — that unborn fetuses should have a citizen’s right to life
McCutchen accused Huckabee of pandering to "politically correct" interests to better his chances for a position in President Bush’s administration.
