Farage: No one should manipulate this tragedy for political ends
• Statement by Nigel Farage MEP, UKIP leader and Co-President of the Europe of Freedom and Democracy Group on the Norwegian tragedy and its aftermath.
"The killing of innocent children is always abhorrent. The attempt by this hate-filled madman to try to justify it with political motivation is futile.
"As co-president of a Group in the European Parliament that stands for Freedom and Democracy, I find Breivik's actions and ideology of hatred totally repugnant.
"Anybody who would try to praise the political ideology of this mass murderer is morally and politically misguided. Those seeking to make political capital out of this slaughter are reprehensible.
"No one should manipulate this human tragedy for political ends."
