"Extreme right-wing UKIP" - BBC Turkish

DB has come across a tweet from the BBC's Turkish feed . It concerns UKIP:

DB is quite right about that. In every translation I've tried, the phrase "aşırı sağcı UKIP" means "extreme right-wing UKIP" ('aşırı' being the word that translates as 'extreme'). 

Why is the BBC telling its Turkish audience that UKIP is "extreme right-wing"?


  1. As Jeremy Paxman explained, the World Service is how the BBC should spread influence. This is the influence BBC editors want to spread.

  2. Power unto truth. Corrupted.
