It's quite hypocritical for you to accuse the British of neo-nazism. UKIP, which polls at 10%, has its most "extreme" view in leaving the EU customs union and single market. It's not racist. Please don't throw that word around just because it makes you feel righteous, please be rational. They simply want to have control over EU immigration, just like 90% percent of other countries. Are Canadians Nazis for having Immigration control? No, right?. Isn't it a little odd that the UK pays the second largest amount into the EU budget, yet has no control over its own fate in the EU, while Germany, France and Italy have all the say? It's like the UK pays Brussels officials' exorbitant salaries to then be told what to do. A simple law of the universe is that he who has the gold makes the rules. High time some people learned that.
Back to Neo-nazism. In France, the FN, as you are aware, is polling at 25 percent of the vote. Not only is that 2.5 times higher than support for UKIP, but the FN was founded by an ACTUAL neo-nazi who was also a holocaust denialist. Oh, and they also support Frexit.
In the Netherlands, Geert Wilders is polling at 25% percent as well. He has made perfectly clear over the past decade his hatred for muslims and morroccans in particular, and has called for a complete "De-Islamification" of the Netherlands, which would include banning the Koran and tearing down mosques. He also made a propaganda movie about Islam. Need I mention that he also supports leaving the EU?
Germany has AfD, which is the worst of all three, but thankfully the are only polling at 15%(which is still more than UKIP, and it is even more shocking considering Germany's history and responsibility in particular to suppress nazism). AfD has openly said same-sex marriage and adoption are a "moral decay" and advocate "old gender roles". Basically they want women to be as disenfranchised as they were in Nazi Germany.
They also, like Trump, deny global warming, and perhaps more worryingly, support conscription to rearm Germany. Again. For the third time.
WILL THEY EVER LEARN?
So yes, you have parties that are far worse that are also polling far higher to worry about in Europe, and unlike UKIP, they actually can be called Nazis, and they actually stand a chance of winning elections. Geert Wilders almost certainly will, although a coalition can hopefully keep him out. UKIP doesn't seem so bad anymore, ey?
May I remind you that the British took up the moral fight against Germany, not once, but twice, at their own expense and in the case of WW1, optionally, simply to protect a neutral state. They sacrificed everything, the empire, their prosperity, and lives to save Europe from annihilation, while Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal and Ireland refused to fight, while France rolled over and died as usual and Italy joined the axis. Without the British fight against Nazism, We would no doubt live in tyranny.
Yet the ungrateful behaviour and hatred towards Britain displayed by France knows no end, despite the fact that they would not exist as a nation if it weren't for Britain.
Please do some introspection before accusing other countries of racism and nazism, as it is in your best interests. Simply throwing those terms around because it is easy rather than dealing with the problems that cause them will only enhance the cases and agenda of those parties which I have previously mentioned, and you, unlike the UK, might actually be lumped with Mrs Le Pen as president.
