Far left Rage for Farage? or Welcome to Thanets Benefit Street Kids
Therefore it was no surprise that Thanet's apparent loose alliance of lefties were out to cause trouble as Nigel Farage, the leader of UKIP arrived for a meeting in Margate, admittedly it appears from the television pictures to have been a rather miserable turnout, of I suspect Socialist Workers ( a misnomer usually people awkward in company and on benefits!) and animal welfare activists whom generally have a great capacity than normal for harming members of their own species.
As you might expect Thanet's guardian of all things left, Cllr Ian Driver always rational had this to say on his blog about the sorry group of thugs and legitimate protesters, "Some very angry people were there." his piece started off, in restrained manner, "I guess it was inevitable things would kick off." he quickly added "UKIP seem to be upsetting everyone. " (what by quietly holding a meeting in a hotel?) ignoring the obvious violence and hostility of those he seems so supportive.
I don't doubt criticism of migration policy within Europe makes us all feel uncomfortable, however there has to be a finite number of people this country can absorb, when someone can explain the benefit of British children attending schools outnumber by non English speakers, overwhelmed health services etcetera then I shall buy into the Euro Dream.
As far as I'm concerned Nigel Farage is welcome to visit Thanet anytime he likes, and unlike some of our guests, I doubt he'll need anyone to remind him, that not only is it bad manners to attempt to break into a vehicle in broad daylight but against the law, as was the behaviour of those he filmed by Ian Driver.
Perhaps, Cllr Ian Driver could one day be the Green Party's Cllr David Silvester
PS I noticed that BBC South East lackeys of the establishment, seemed to spend more time dishing up anti UKIP dirt than honest when reporting this attack by Thanet thugs.
