Police treat UKIP as extremist, leave Greens alone

IMAGINE IF THEY TREATED THE GREENS THIS WAY: Hampshire school calls police after pupil looks at UKIP website.

School staff called police when a pupil looked at a UKIP website and an English Defence League video in class.

Mick Taylor said his 15-year-old son was asked by police whether he was a UKIP activist, and has described police action as inappropriate.

The procedure left him feeling “like a terrorist”, Mr Taylor added.

Most of UKIP ideas were conventional and mainstream a generation or two previously; most Green ideas have never before been mainstream. The Greens would be seen as more extremist than the UKIP, except that the media root for the Greens.
