Having met this man some years ago, at a time when UKIP was not taken as a serious contender for political power, and finding him to be a decent man with no ill will towards anyone, I am outraged that the political ruling class have created an environment in which thugs feel free to commit acts of violence against him.
The same can be said of Swedish politics, in which the ruling status quo parties (and their lap dog fake media) have so thoroughly demonized the Swedish Democrats, that members of the SD are routinely victimized on the streets of Sweden if they are caught without physical protection.
BRICK THROWN THROUGH UKIP MEP’S WINDOW, FARAGE UNDER THREAT
UKIP’s Gerard Batten MEP has had his home window smashed after a brick was thrown through the glass in his living room late last night, Breitbart London has learned.
The violent attack on the Member of the European Parliament comes after a spate of incidents involving UKIP members, and following increased and hostile media scrutiny on the run up to the European Elections.
It was reported earlier today that Batten awoke in the early hours of last night to suspicious noises from outside of his house. Both he and his wife were woken up at around 3:30am, but following an inspection of the premises, decided to return to bed.
Then, 45 minutes later, another noise was heard, and the Batten’s found a brick in their living room which had been thrown through their window.
Police are said to be investigating local CCTV footage, but high profile UKIP members are now on alert following several violent altercations involving ‘anti-Fascist’ activists.
UKIP leader Nigel Farage issued a statement late this evening which read: “I’ve just heard the disgraceful news that my colleague Gerard Batten MEP’s house was attacked with bricks. The attack on his home is a direct consequence of the media campaign against UKIP.”
His comments are not without merit. Earlier this month Labour MP Karl Turner tweeted a picture of a UKIP leaflet wrapped around a brick, and implied that he would post it to UKIP’s freepost address.
