Farage gets the BNP treatment from Scottish Reds

How will UKIP deal with the rabid hatred of the deluded Far Left?

With one of UKIPs recently won Councillors standing down within a fortnight of being elected, the road ahead may be somewhat rocky for UKIP types who took the easy option. As John Tyndall said - a watered down message will never win in the long run.  

British Patriots Society report - Nigel Farage was locked inside an Edinburgh pub for his own safety as anti-patriotic campaigners (Patriotophobes) UAF, crashed the Ukip leader's visit to the capital, according to reports.... UKIP leader Nigel Farage had to find refuge in a pub after he was swarmed by angry left wing socialist protesters as he left a press conference.

The party leader's press conference was called to an abrupt halt by stunned pub staff, and Mr Farage fought his way out onto Edinburgh's historic Royal Mile.

As the crowds grew, police closed the road, and officers' attempts to flag down a cab for Mr Farage failed.

The MEP was then bundled back to the pub by police officers, who locked the doors and barricaded him inside. A police riot van eventually arrived to take Mr Farage to safety.

More than 50 protesters had gathered on the street, where a giant 'Vote Yes for Scotland' banner was held up.

Offensive chants included 'you can stick your Union Jack up your a***' and 'go back to England, you're not welcome here'.

Members of an extreme left-wing group called Radical Independence, which has been involved in the official 'Yes Scotland' campaign, helped promote the protest.

Amid the ugly scenes, Mr Farage said: 'We have never had a reception like this anywhere in Britain before. It is clearly anti-British and anti-English.

' He added: 'They hate the Union Jack, so maybe that's what it's about.' Speaking after the event, Mr Farage said: 'Normally I would love to be locked in a pub, but it was pretty unpleasant.

It's not something I've experienced myself anywhere else in the United Kingdom.

'If this is the face of Scottish nationalism, it's a pretty ugly picture.'

 'This was dressed up as an anti-racism protest, but it was nothing of the sort – it was an anti-English thing.'

Mr Farage said the protesters were 'not prepared to have a conversation' and he praised the police for a 'very, very good job'.

'If the police hadn't been there it could have turned very nasty,' he said. Read more
