The BBC reports that Nigel Farage may be sued by the far-left activist group Hate Not Hope for calling them extremists….oh and he’s upset Mr Jo Cox who likes to exploit the death of his wife and yet doesn’t like it when others object. Curiously the BBC seems to have forgotten all about this from 2014…
Ukip leader Nigel Farage has accused anti-fascist campaign groups connected to members of the Labour party of acting violently against him “more than once”.
Mr Farage alleged that members of the Unite against Fascism and Hope not Hate campaign groups had acted in a violent way and accused them turning up to his meetings and banging him “over the head with banners”. Both campaign groups have fully rejected his claims.
Speaking to Andrew Neil on the BBC Sunday Politics show, Mr Farage lamented the need for him to travel with four bodyguards, claiming that he “can’t stand it” because he has “always been a free spirit that’s wandered about the place and done my own thing”.
He told the programme: “Sadly we have a couple of organisations out there headed up by senior Labour party figures, who purport to be against fascism and extremism, who receive funding from the Department of Communities, who receive funding from the trade unions, who have acted in a violent way more than once.”
It transpired Mr Farage was talking about Unite Against Fascism, whose parliamentary officer is Labour MP Peter Hain, and the Hope Not Hate campaign group, one of whose patrons is Labour peer Baroness Kinnock.
The UAF are street thugs who work closely with HnH and it is usually the UAF that provokes violence at EDL marches…some report that it is HnH members who direct the UAF to EDL locations. HnH was part funded by the government and directed to counter EDL influence in communities…the government’s very own Brownshirts?…the unions also fund HnH….and of course the UAF is from the Unite union….Labour’s favourite funder of choice.
Andrew Gilligan on the UAF…
The self-appointed opponents of bigotry can be as ugly as the racist groups they oppose.
The Unite union, amongst many others, funds Labour and the UAF…….Farage is not far wrong is he?
