Ukip provocateur unmasked
Ukip, the divisive right-wing party, admits that it sent an agent provocateur into Stand up to Ukip which was campaigning against Nigel Farage in South Thanet, Kent during the general election.
Anti-Farage campaigners say the spy worked for Secura Associates, the security company used by Farage, and encouraged Stand up to Ukip supporters to commit acts of vandalism.
Farage consistently complained about a group of "trade union-funded activists" being parachuted into South Thanet to sow "hatred and resentment" adding, ironically, "they're inciting vandalism and public disorder".
