I didn’t call UKIP fascists, I called AfD fascists. UKIP aren’t libertarians though, in the last couple of years they’ve become progressively more racist and fascist. They never were libertarians — they wanted Brexit, but had some very centre-left economic policies, as most populists do. The Conservative Party is closest to libertarianism in Britain, and I actually support many of their ideas.

The Brexit Party, by contrast to UKIP, might be a party I mostly disagree with, but they’re not fascist or racist.

I really don’t know how you’ve arrived at the conclusion that I’m communist. I am centre-right and think that communism is equally dangerous as fascism, and I hope that democratic processes should protect from communism.
