Britons for Britain
The week's news at a glance.
The big surprise winner in the E.U. elections in Britain this week was the U.K. Independence Party, which advocates pulling Britain out of the international body altogether. The UKIP quadrupled its presence in the European Parliament to 12 seats, including one for Robert Kilroy-Silk, a former TV anchor who was fired for referring to Arabs as limb amputators and suicide bombers. Asked what he intended to do in the European Parliament, Kilroy-Silk said, Wreck it! He then clarified, We want to expose its waste, its corruption, and its erosion of our sovereignty.
