Free speech warrior, Mark Meechan, aka Count Dankula revealed yesterday on Twitter that he is ‘thinking of joining UKIP’.
Thinking of joining UKIP.

Meechan was fined £800 in April for an offence under the Communications Act relating to a video in which he taught his girlfriends pet Pug dog to perform Nazi salutes in response to certain phrases. He described the video as a joke centred around the “juxtaposition of having an adorable animal react to something vulgar”.
Since his conviction, he has shot to prominence as an active campaigner for free speech. He spoke at the Day For Freedom event. His interest in UKIP certainly reinforces the fact that the Party is increasingly seen as a determined advocate for freedom of speech. His tweet received over 2000 likes. This is why the proposal that the leadership appoint a Free Speech And Civil Liberties spokesman should be taken on-board by the UKIP leadership to further stake our claim as the Party of Free Speech.
