David Cameron should tell German chancellor Angela Merkel to “f*** off” when dealing with the refugee crisis, according to the chairman of the Lichfield and Burntwood UKIP branch.
More than €6billion (£4.4billion) has been allocated by the German government to deal with a influx of 800,000 refugees.
Mr Cameron has informed the House of Commons that the United Kingdom will accept 20,000 refugees from camps bordering Syria over the next five years, but reports have suggested that the Germans have told the Prime Minister that his renegotiation ahead of the EU referendum vote depends on Britain resettling displaced Syrians.
And French president Francois Hollande believes without a unified European policy to disperse refugees across the 28 EU member states, the borderless Schengen agreement would collapse.
But Peter Cope, chairman of the Lichfield and Burntwood branch of UKIP, says Angela Merkel would not have dared make such a demand if she was dealing with Nigel Farage.
He added: “We’re not a part of the Schengen agreement, so we actually don’t have to take in any refugees.
“If Merkel says we have to take them in then I would tell her to f*** o** – can you imagine what would have happened if she had made those demands to Nigel instead of Cameron?
“The German chancellor knows Cameron is desperate to keep Britain in Europe, so that when he steps down at the next election he can become a European Commissioner.
“All local and national politicians are interested in is power. They don’t care at all about the public.”
The UKIP chairman also questioned why the Government was using the foreign aid budget to house refugees and not tackle issues at home.
He said: “We are cutting schools and turning them into free schools or academies, which is another Conservative con.
“The Tories are cutting back on the NHS, and this is all because we haven’t got any money, but we can still spend £12billion a year on foreign aid.
“Chancellor George Osborne is having to use the foreign aid money, because that is the only way he can afford to house the refugees that will be coming into the country.”
