THIS elderly woman clearly wasn’t impressed with the protesters outside last night’s UKIP rally in Swansea.

She appears to be putting two fingers up to the people carrying placards with slogans such as ‘Hatred not welcome here’ and ‘Stop racism now’.

They seemed to see the funny side though.

The wheelchair-bound woman was one of a number of people attending the Liberty Stadium event.

It came after Nigel Farage cancelled a proposed walkabout in Swansea’s Oxford Street, because of ‘security concerns’.

    Lezz_T and Neathboy have now resorted to attacking old ladies who are confined to wheel chairs. Oh how our society is falling apart thanks to left wing extremists, not even the elderly are safe. It's just words now, how long before a leftist extremist physically attacks them for daring to vote.

    Neathboy, if you are local person your grandparents will be UKIP supporters. Somehow I couldn't ever see you daring to say this stuff their faces.

    DressBagShoes: The Soviet Union style border controls that Farage wants would be oh-oh-oh so popular with British holidaymakers and everyone travelling to Europe and elsewhere on business. The current situation is bad enough. Still, I suppose he and his followers think that anyone who leaves or enters Britain is up to no good.

    The present Neath Port Talbot Mayor is not averse to a spot of bother.

    Currently (9:31pm, 2 May 2014) on the politics tab on the SWEP, the most recent 8 articles are about Nigel Farage. A poster on this thread who is noted for his ghoulish, misanthropic comments about suicides and fatal accidents says he'll vote for UKIP - What a surprise.

    Neil: Was she sacked but now earns #"*%& a month on her computer? Yes, it did make it into the news in2012. At least the Councillor who you refer to has realised the huge mistake that she made years ago and is now doing good work for her community. You can go to the local Milton Keynes newspaper and check.

    I went along with a friend to this meeting. I'm not a UKIP supporter particularly but my friend's a bit frail and needed someone to go with her, she's also a lesbian, I'm not. The left wing rabble outside were a disgrace with their fascist banners. THEY are the fascist. I must admit I enjoyed the evening, as did my friend – and we BOTH will be voting UKIP. I was surprised my friend says she will. She's always been a bit left wing, but she agreed with everything that was said. And certainly nothing racist (or homophobic) was said. I'm not sure about the main election next year. I don't think they've had enough experience for now. There are bad apples – Politicians AND members in all the main parties. Look at Maria Miller and her expenses fiddle. . Does that mean all Tories are like her? A former Nazi has been elected as a Labour Councillor in Milton Keynes! That IS an absolute disgrace I didn't see that as headline news - And why have Labour allowed that. Shame on you Labour. At l least UKIP has the guts to kick these sorts of people out. The main parties are running scared THAT'S the real problem. They've had it their cosy little way too long -so let's just SLUR away UKIP whenever we can. A democratic disgrace.
