A conference in Sheffield for the UK Independence Party’s young supporters has been cancelled after a campaign of threats and intimidation by Alt-Left activists, according to its organisers.
“It is with great reluctance that we have been forced to announce that the Young Independence #Horizons conference has been cancelled/postponed indefinitely,” reads an online letter from the YI executive council.
“Unfortunately, the Hard Left Stand Up to Racism organisation planned a protest at the hotel and has sent a large amount of abusive and threatening emails to Hilton Hotel staff. … The Hilton inform us that the quantity of emails that were of an aggressive nature was overwhelming and they decided that owing to an increased security risk posed by the Far Left to delegates, hotel guests and Hilton staff they have been left with very little option than to cancel the event.”

Alright, so that just happened. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling blamed former UKIP-chief Nigel Farage for the terrorist attack on Finsbury Park mosque. Luckily for Farage, he’s a lad-emperor who knows how to respond to this sort of madness.
Also, check out the ever brilliant Brendan O’Neill on exactly this matter.

Nigel Farage hosts the first of his nightly shows on LBC this evening – and you can watch it all back here.
The former Ukip leader presents his brand new show every Monday to Thursday from 7-8pm, live on LBC.

“Surprised the UK populace has stupidly failed to see the zionist trojan horse in UKIP.
I asked why UKIP was a “Friend of israel”, especially after the attack on the Gaza flotilla….but was ignored.”
Steven Woolfe is quitting Ukip because the party is “ungovernable” and beset by “infighting and toxicity”.
Mr Woolfe has resigned from the party with immediate effect in the wake of the altercation with another member of the party which left him hospitalised earlier this month.
In an article for The Telegraph, he said that the party “lacks direction, it lacks a purpose and it lacks any semblance of professional organisation”.
Mr Woolfe said he will now sit an independent MEP in the European Parliament.

A SCHOOLBOY was hauled out of class and interrogated by detectives after politically correct teachers reported him to the POLICE for visiting the UKIP website.
Teenager Joe Taylor was flagged up for political extremism by the deputy head after he used a school computer to click on the party’s website.
Farage is absolutely correct about those ‘migrants’.
I have word from several of my contacts that these migrants just go into supermarkets & stores eat and drink whatever they want and leave a mess.
They also just take with them whatever they want.
And the police can’t deal with the situation anymore.
Nigel Farage in the European parliament after the Greek election result 2015
– UKIP voters wouldn’t accept a Jewish prime minister – poll (RT, Jan 23, 2015):
More than half of the UK Independence Party’s (UKIP) supporters wouldn’t accept a Jewish prime minister, recent polls show. The results come as the British Ambassador to the UN pledged to eradicate anti-Semitism in the UK.
Only 48 percent of UKIP supporters intending to vote for the party in the next general election said they believed a Jewish leader would be as “acceptable” as any other potential candidate.
– ’I’m joining UKIP!’ Tory MP defects to join Farage’s anti-EU crusade (RT, Sep 27, 2014):
A UK Conservative MP has defected to the UK Independence Party, formally resigning from the main ruling coalition party and prompting a by-election in his home constituency.
“I’m joining UKIP!” MP Mark Reckless announced to a standing ovation at the UKIP party conference, which took place in Doncaster on Saturday.

– Nigel Farage’s UKIP Takes Clear Lead In EU Election Polls (ZeroHedge, May 2, 2014):
Nigel Farage’s UKIP has opened up a clear lead in the run up to next month’s elections for the European Parliament. According to ComRes, 38% of Britons certain to vote say that they would cast their ballot for the party, compared to 27% who would vote for Labour, 18% who would vote for the Conservatives and 8% who would vote Lib Dem. UKIP is damaging Conservative hopes as 67% of 2010 Tory voters are now saying they would vote for UKIP. However, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns for the euro-skeptic party, as – somewhat expectedly – almost one third of Britons think that UKIP is a racist party; even as 48% believe UKIP has sensible policies.
– Nigel Farage: I admire Vladimir Putin (Guardian, March 31, 2014):
Ukip leader praises Russian president’s handling of Syria crisis, but describes Germany’s chancellor as ‘incredibly cold’
Nigel Farage has named Vladimir Putin as the world leader he most admires, praising the Russian president’s handling of the crisis in Syria.
But the Ukip leader had less kind words for Angela Merkel, describing the German chancellor as “incredibly cold”.
He also said he saw little to choose between the leaders of Britain’s three major parties, telling GQ magazine he does not give a damn whether David Cameron or Ed Miliband wins next year’s general election.
– Nigel Farage Booms “Europe Is Now Run By Big Banks, Big Business, And Big Bureaucrats” (ZeroHedge, Jan 15, 2014):
With Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras settling into his role as EU President, UKIP’s Nigel Farage stunned the “Goldman Sachs puppet” with a 150-second tirade of truthiness he has likely never experienced. Farage sacrastically remarks how Greeks “will be dancing in the streets” at Samaras’ ‘successful’ negotiation on MiFiD reminding him that “60% of youth are unemployed and the neo-nazi party are on the march.” Europe is now run by “big business, big banks, and big bureaucrats,” Farage goes on, suggesting the smarmy-looking Samaras should “rename his party from New Democracy to No Democracy.” People do not want a United State of Europe, the outspoken UKIP leader explains, they want a “Europe of sovereign states,” and concludes ominously, “the European elections will be a watershed.”
…And you come here Mr Samaras and you tell us that you represent the sovereign will of the Greek people? Well, I’m sorry, but you’re not in charge of Greece, and I suggest you rename and rebrand your party – it’s called ‘New Democracy’, I suggest you call it ‘No Democracy’.
Because Greece is now under foreign control. You can’t make any decisions, you’ve been bailed out, and you’ve surrendered democracy, the thing your country invented in the first place.
And you can’t admit that joining the euro was a mistake – of course Mr Papandreou did that didn’t he, he even said there should be a referendum in Greece and within 48 hours, the unholy trinity (troika) that now run this European Union had him removed and replaced by a ex-Goldman Sachs employee puppet.
We are run now by big business, big banks and in the shape of Mr Barroso, big bureaucrats…

• Joint debate: European Council meeting (22 May 2013) – tax fraud and tax havens
“Thank you. Well there is a great degree of unity here this morning, with a common enemy – rich people, successful companies evading tax, which of course is a problem.
Avoiding tax, which is not illegal, but it gives this whole chamber this morning a high moral tone.
And as Mr Barroso says it is all about the perception of fairness. Because there is the added bonus of course that it drives a wedge between the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, and the Caymans.
But before we declare our virtues, perhaps we ought to look just a little bit closer to home.
And I hope that the taxpayers all over Europe listen to this. If we look at the EU officials who work for the European Commission and the European Parliament, the highest category [the most common grade is AD12] are people that earn a net take home pay of just over 100 thousand pounds a year. And yet under EU rules they pay tax of 12 per cent. It is tax fraud on an absolutely massive scale.
And Mr Barroso I would say to you, how can that be deemed to be fair? How can people out there struggling – the 16 million people unemployed in the eurozone – how can they look at these institutions, not only paying people vast sums of money but allowing them tax and pension benefits on a scale not seen anywhere else in the world? So I suggest we have a bit less of this high moral tone.
And what have these officials given us? Well, they were the architects of the euro, which is a complete disaster. Their obsession with global warming which chimes very strongly here means we are despoiling our landscapes and seascapes with these disgusting wind turbines and driving up energy prices.
But never let it be said that I cannot acknowledge success when I see it. And I am sure the citizens of Europe will all clap and cheer loudly that the grave, mortal danger of olive oil in dipping bowls has been removed by the officials. Well done everybody.”
– Godfrey Bloom of UKIP: Central Bankers Should be Arraigned as “War Criminals” (Liberty Blitzkrieg, May 7, 2013):
Coming off the heels of a fantastic performance in recent local elections, the UKIP under the leadership of Nigel Farage continues to make waves in both the UK and the Continent itself. In this case, I refer to a recent powerful performance at the European Parliament courtesy of Godfrey Bloom (UKIP), member of the European Parliament.
For many years, I have stated that Ben Bernanke was and is committing crimes against humanity, and would one day stand trial much like the war criminals at Nuremberg. It appears I am no longer alone in echoing such sentiments, as Mr. Bloom has just done so before the European Parliament.
I once said that Nigel Farage is Category 5 political hurricane. That hurricane has landed.
