On Ukip’s leader twisted views on torture and human rights

Standard

“Asked about previous comments in which he said torture techniques such as waterboarding might be justified if it was to prevent an imminent attack, Nuttall said he did not want it to be used routinely. However, he said in some cases hard measures could be needed (…) Nuttall also repeated that while support for the death penalty was not Ukip policy, he would be potentially willing to pull the lever and personally execute people convicted of child murders ”
