Squeaky not so popular finger up the bum time
Sadly for Farage and his entourage, the news of his arrival preceded him, with the result that, almost as soon as he had fetched up at the local Kipper HQ, a peaceful but noisy protest was in progress. Rather than accept that all those ghastly proles whose votes he’s trying to garner were entitled to assemble and pass forthright and adverse comment on his presence, Farage panicked and summoned the rozzers.
Yes, it was fine for UKIP supporters to abuse the town’s MP, but a group of peaceful protesters outside UKIP HQ was something entirely different. After Farage had been advised to cut short his visit by South Yorkshire Police, who then provided a car to take him safely from the scene, he went on LBC to dump an industrial-scale tirade of abuse on them for their trouble. Maybe someone was out to get him - or not.
