IDIOTIC Ukip leader Nigel Farage caused yet another uproar yesterday after he said that migrants with HIV should be prevented from entering Britain.
In an interview with Newsweek Europe, Mr Farage set out the changes he would like to see, including a block on convicted killers being allowed into Britain.
Mr Farage said Ukip “want to control the quantity and quality of people who come” to Britain.
Asked by Newsweek whether “quality” meant people without a murder conviction, he answered: “Yes. And people who do not have HIV, to be frank. That’s a good start. And people with a skill. That is what Britain should do.”
Charity Terrence Higgins Trust chief executive Dr Rosemary Gillespie said: “The idea that having HIV should be used as a black mark against someone’s name is ridiculous, and shows an outrageous lack of understanding of the issue.
“It is to the UK’s credit that for more than three decades successive governments, no matter their political stamp, have refused to put in place border controls against people living with HIV.”
