Christopher HopeThe Conservative peer said “we have seen Ukips before”, as he drew parallels with Enoch Powell in the 1960s and politicians such as Jean-Marie Le Pen in France, Germany and the Netherlands.
Lord Heseltine, who advises the Coalition on economic growth, told the BBC: “Of course it’s racist, who doubts that? Farage isn’t racist but his party is very attractive to a racist agenda.”
The peer, a Cabinet minister in the last Conservative government in the 1990s, said that a vote for Ukip at the 2015 general election would be one for Labour. He said: “The price of not voting for the Tories will be Ed Miliband.”
