UK: "Police have been handcuffed by political correctness" says Farage

United Kingdom, Sheffield

UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage made an appearance in Sheffield, Monday, in a bid to boost the profile of local party member Councillor Jack Clarkson. The former policeman and UKIP enthusiast will run in October’s South Yorkshire Police Crime Commissioner (PCC) by-election.

Farage and Clarkson took a tour around Sheffield’s National Emergency Services Museum before giving an interview with press. Stating that Labour was too comfortable and complacent in their Sheffield stronghold, Farage claimed that UKIP were the only challengers in the upcoming by-election.

Clarkson added that police had been constrained by ‘political correctness’, with Farage stating that Sheffield police were fearful for being thought to be racist. He added that this would not be the case under a UKIP police commissioner.

The October 30th election will find a replacement for former PCC Shaun Wright, who left his post after a report found that 1,400 children in Rotherham had experienced sexual abuse between 1997 and 2013.
