First it's "apparently SWP members" now it's "whether it's the SWP or anyone else". Just typical of your sub-standard journalism Martyn. I suspect there were some SWP members there along with Left Unity, Socialist Party, Greens and many others, but if you think they have any truck with Rotherham Labour councillors the you are as politically ignorant as you are journalistically inept.


UKIP are currently pulling out all the stops to divert attention from the daily exposure of their councillors, officers and PPCs being made to resign or being expelled for disgusting racist, Islamophobic, sexist and homophobic views expressed when they though no one was looking.


Farage's visit was well timed for him to take advantage of a tragic and criminal situation and for the media and others to try and portray him as a victim. Fascism in action!

I didn't realise that posting on here was "journalism".


If it is, then quite a lot of us are sub-standard.


I'm afraid you are in denial just as much as the Labour councillors you profess to despise.


We have had one of the worst examples of child exploitation we have ever seen in this country, and yet you prefer to focus on UKIP councillors rather than demanding that those responsible for what has happened in Rotherham should be brought to book.


Whoever the people were who were outside the UKIP office in Rotherham, they would have been far better lobbying for justice for the victims of the appalling events there.

Looked peaceful (and very grey haired) on the daily politics. 

And presumably some of them may have been bald.


Not sure what that, or their hair colour, would have to do with whether they were intimidating or not.

Didn't you notice the tory lady (Bristol MP)?  Or Tory bloke (Andrew Pearce?).  Or that Champion spent the whole program trying to have a bill amended to protect children? 


I think you might need an eye test to check if both are working.

My eyes are fine, thanks.


There were plenty of others who got their faces in front of the camera, but Ms Champion was clearly the one who the cameras were most interested in.

Actually, Stand up to UKIP is much more widely based than the SWP (who are in serious disarray at the moment anyway). When Farage tries to take advantage of the situation in Rotherham, he proves the racist, bigoted, xenophobic motivation behind his agenda and the need for the campaign against him. Anyway, the more time he spends away from Thanet South the less chance he has of making it to the Commons.

Whether its the SWP or anyone else, I get the impression that it's all part of the culture of denial that seems to pervade politicians in the town and that led to many of them resigning earlier this week.


They seem to want to do anything to divert attention from themselves.


Farage's visit was in fact extremely well timed for them.

The photos show a very small crowd of people.  Even the most sensationalist report describes them as peaceful.


It is hilarious that Farage used that as an excuse to stay indoors, rather like he did that time he found Scotland on a map and tried to politick there.

They were so peaceful that he apparently had to be given a police escort.
