Looks like he has upset the Jock's...

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has been escorted away from demonstrators in a police riot van during a campaign trip in Edinburgh.

Mr Farage was heckled by protesters as he was promoting the UKIP candidate in a Scottish by-election.

As he was holding a news conference inside the Canons' Gait pub on the Royal Mile, just yards from the Scottish Parliament, he was surrounded by dozens of protesters shouting insults at him - some calling him "racist" and "scum".

Bar staff were forced to clear the pub and the protest spilled outside, obstructing Mr Farage's exit.

The UKIP leader attempted to make an escape by taxi but protesters blocked its path.

Police eventually escorted Mr Farage back into the pub and barricaded the doors against protesters.

He was finally removed from the scene in a police riot van.

Protester Max Crema, 21, an economics student and vice president of services at Edinburgh University Students Association, suggested UKIP has "a well-documented history of racism".

However, Mr Farage replied: "We are a non-racist, non-sectarian party and unlike every other party in British politics we actually forbid people who have been on extreme left or right-wing extremes from joining our party."

A UKIP spokesman said of Mr Farage: "I don't think he was shaken up by it. He was laughing, in fact.

"He is happy to debate his views with people who show common decency, and it's just a shame that people don't always show the same courtesy."

Mr Farage hopes to build on electoral gains in England and start winning in Scotland.

He was promoting his candidate Otto Inglis in the Aberdeen Donside by-election.

There's probably worse places to be barricaded in than a pub. ;)

Upset the local Red Guard, anyway.

Bravo. :)

OPEN IMMIGRATION SKEPTICS TAKE SECOND PLACE IN UK BY-ELECTION

by RAHEEM KASSAM 13 Feb 2014
The United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) has yet again taken second place in a by-election in the north of England following the death of Labour Member of Parliament Paul Goggins.

Results from the Wythenshawe and Sale East by-election in Greater Manchester came in moments ago, with the Labour Party expectedly taking first place with 55 percent of the vote share, with UKIP second on 17.8 percent and the Conservative Party behind them on 14.3 percent.

The Liberal Democrat Party, the junior party in Britain's coalition government, performed embarrassingly (as expected), with just 4.9 percent of the vote.

The results will also concern the Conservative Party, which has been pushed into third place yet again, following similar performances in the South Shields (May 2013), Eastleigh (Feb 2013), Manchester Central (Nov 2012), and Barnsley (March 2011) by-elections.

But while UKIP has been attracting support from the disillusioned Conservative Party backers since its inception, it has now been luring voters from the left, too—a fact that the Labour Party has clearly sought to address by hurrying along the dates of certain by-elections (as the incumbent party) and relying heavily on postal votes to tip the balance.

The postal turnout in today's by-election was 40 percent, and the method has accounted for over half of all votes in previous by-elections.

UKIP's Nigel Farage argues that the historically short campaigning period (only three days, in this case) means that the election is basically a "stitch-up" for Labour, whose activists flood the streets to help people fill out and file their postal ballots.

Farage recently said: "Labour has realised it cannot win the arguments with UKIP on big issues such as immigration and job opportunities for young people. So it is using its machine, sponsored by the trades unions, to stitch up votes before the electorate has had a chance to weigh up the issues and hear all the candidates in by-elections make their pitch."

And while Farage may have a point, there is no doubt that UKIP needs to better oil its own election machine rather than lamenting the fact that the victor has a superior model.

The Conservative Party will wish to remain as quiet as possible over the next few days, and the Liberal Democrats... well, no one cares.
UKIP will no doubt try and play up the fact that another second-place finish shows that they are serious players for what would be their first seat in Parliament in the 2015 General Election. At 17.8 percent, UKIP performed slightly better than expected, and all this without any real previous local presence.

The fact that immigration is now British voters' number one concern alongside the economy could have something to do with this. Or of course, UKIP could just be the latest protest party. Only 2015 will truly tell.

P.S. I did warn you that the Conservative Party's ground game in Wythenshawe was lacking, did I not?

UKIP PLANS GAY PRIDE PRESENCE IN DEFIANCE OF ORGANISER BAN

by BREITBART LONDON
19 Jun 2015

The UK Independence Party (UKIP) still plans on sending activists to London’s gay pride parade next weekend, despite the event organisers banning the political party on the grounds of safety, Breitbart London can reveal.

On June 5th, Breitbart London reported that UKIP was officially banned from the parade in London, after a campaign against the party by political groups and full-time, left-wing LGBT activists, it appears that the organisers have caved.

LGBT campaigner Peter Tatchell, said it was “not appropriate” for either homosexual or straight members of UKIP to attend the march, and the event organisers, despite initially inviting UKIP, turned on their heel and said: “For this year we have reached the decision that UKIP’s application to join the Pride in London Parade, 27th June 2015, will be turned down. This decision has been made after careful consultation in order to protect participants and ensure the event passes off safely and in the right spirit, it has not been made on a political basis. :lol:

But a defiant statement to party members today read:

“As many people will be aware that LGBT* in UKIP was given an entry to participate at this years London Gay Pride Event taking place on Saturday 27th June 2015. This entry was subsequently rescinded by the organizer’s citing safety grounds, a reason which is widely accepted to be just an excuse to keep LGBT* in UKIP out of the parade.

“Despite this ban, LGBT* in UKIP do plan to show a presence, supporting LGBT rights, inclusion and equality, not to mention our right to be there. It is important that we get as many LGBT people from UKIP to attend, as there will be media interest in us.”

It is unclear at this point whether organisers will try and keep UKIP members away, if indeed they are able to identify them.



Who doesn't love a parade?

Why the hate in excluding them from the parade?

I thought LGBT'ers were generally all about inclusion?

As has been pointed out, gay pride apparently isn't about gay pride, it's about leftist politics.

As I understand it a bunch of gay UKIPpers are more or less planning to martyr themselves to prove a point. ;)

Sounds like a win-win for UKIP.

If they participate in the parade and nothing happens, it demonstrates their openess and acceptance of gays.

If they participate and they are shouted down at the parade by the leftists then the leftists are revealed as hypocrites for having something against (UKIP) gays.
