Ukip’s new leader Gerard Batten insists he was RIGHT to describe Islam as a ‘dark ages death cult’

Ukip’s new interim leader has insisted he was ‘factually and historically right’ to brand Islam a ‘death cult’.

Gerard Batten faced condemnation less than 24 hours after taking the helm of Ukip following the sacking of Henry Bolton.

The London MEP said Islam was fuelled by ‘dark ages ideologies’ and claimed many Muslim migrants to the UK believed in a literal interpretation of the Koran.

He claimed new arrivals to Britain should be obliged to sign an agreement rejecting this view.
