Gordon Higinbotham, who appeared on Channel 5's Benefits Britain: Life on the Dole, says he is afraid to leave his house
It can be hard to have sympathy for someone with 15 neo-Nazi tattoos on their body.
So consider Gordon Higinbotham's plight after he appeared on Benefits Britain: Life on the Dole on Channel 5.
He says he is now afraid to leave his house because of death threats and has issued a public apology to the people of Hull.
Higinbotham takes exception at people calling him racist because of his Hitler and Ku Klux Klan tattoos, which he was inspired to get after getting into a fight with 'some foreigners'.
To give him credit, the father-of-four who has never had a full time job, wants to get rid of them because he can't take his shirt off in public for fear of inciting racial hatred.
Among the 15 protest tattoos that he had inked on his body, the former skinhead has a foot-long image of Adolf Hitler on his back and an intricate picture of the Ku Klux Klan across his stomach.
He says his life was turned around in 2010 when policewoman Martina Akrill referred him for bereavement counselling, but since the programme he has faced a backlash over his vile tattoos.
In the programme, which attracted more than 2.5million viewers, Higinbotham appears with his daughter Roseanne and son-in-law Mark.
It is revealed that he cares for his disabled son and he offered to pay his daughter to vote for UKIP.

He could wage jihad from the Gaza strip. What does that pay? Does he know anything about rocketry?
Having seen the program, I can promise you the guy is no rocket scientist.
I’m surprised there’s outrage considering how anti-jew the UK is.
Maybe he should’ve joined the Respect party then it would be a non-story.
Hmmm....go figure. Rabid ideology or a free check?
Seriously, I think we should have a program here in this country about life on EBT - SNAP, EITC, WICs, TANF, SSI, SSDI, Section 8 and all that.
You know, each week, show a person that has a legitimate need, and check that off against the Escalade driving, nails and hair did momma waiving her bills around and demanding to know who’s gonna take care of her babies....
Only trouble is that there’s probably way more of the latter vs. the former.
But, has he DONE anything wrong?
Why Bob Dole was such a funny name for “ending welfare as we know it.”

The proper response to getting in a fight with some “foreigners” (muzzies?) is to win the fight, not embrace yet another violent foreign paradigm. What a dunce.
Notice too that the UKIP was brought up in order to damn by association.
No sympathy here. What a piece of human garbage. And to make it worse, he’s on the dole and other people have to pay for him to eat and breathe.
