UKIP's leading European spin doctor has been embroiled in controversy after it was revealed he labelled two Muslim MEP's as "Taliban".

Hermann Kelly, The Director of Communications for the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy group in the European Parliament, the group formed and lead by UKIP in the EU, made the controversial comments in February on his personal Twitter page.

Kelly made the comments following the defection of Amjad Bashir MEP from UKIP to The Conservative Party.

One comment made on Twitter read:

Another read:

Obviously @AmjadBashir is the turncoat ex UKIP MEP, however, @SHKMEP is North West conservative MEP Sajjad Karim.

MEPs : Sajjad Karim & Amjad Bashir

MEPs : Sajjad Karim & Amjad Bashir

Kelly's comments will no doubt cause further embarrassment following similar comments made by David Coburn, Scottish UKIP MEP who compared the Scottish government minister Humza Yousaf to convicted terrorist Abu Hamza.
