According to the UK Independence Party website UKIP will try to achieve the following if they gain power at the 2010 general election:

Thought Crimes and Hate Speech. UKIP supports freedom of speech. All view points should be heard provided they do not call for crime, violence or the overthrow of democracy.

UKIP would repeal laws that criminalise opinion and belief, and would instead focus police attention on actual crimes, not political ones.

I would be interested to hear both positive and negative views on UK Independence Party’s Thought Crimes and Hate Speech policies in the comments below?
