Protesters target UKIP leader Nigel Farage

PROTESTERS have disrupted the Rotherham visit of UKIP leader Nigel Farage this morning.

Between 60 and 80 people campaigning against UKIP and its policies have made their presence felt outside its town headquarters on Wellgate.

Mr Farage had been due to speak publicly and also complete interviews with members of the media, but his appearances are understood to have been scuppered by the action.

One eye witness at the scene said: “The protesters are here in numbers and they are making their presence felt. They’re being very vocal.”

  • Yet again left wing facsists drag Rotherham's name through the mud. Apparently this rent a mob of 50 + believe that the people of Rotherham should not be allowed to hear the views of democratically elected MEP .and party leader that in recent years have had the votes of thousands of people in Rotherham , their arrogance is staggering. These people have the same mindset of the council and police sexual abuse facilitators , there's is the only opinion and anyone who disagrees is a racist bigot.

  • What must the country think of Rotherham. Continual news of the bigotry, lack of integrity, narrow-mindedness, intolerance, mysoginy, weak intellect of people in areas of public influence. Now we have the prevention of democracy by a mob of the usual bigots and intolerant beings . Why couldn't the leader of UKIP have his say. That is democracy. A strange idea in Rotherham but one of great value to most people.
