    I'm sorry, but I couldn't even get past this line of your post.
    "German" is a nationality, not a race.
    I understand his point though. He should have said xenophobe instead of racist.

    This is amusing, no I personally wouldn't go to the effort and risk of wasting/losing my voice because of him but you know I empathise a lot with those who did...

    So you agree with shouting down other peoples opinions that differ from yours?

    No but I doubt Mr Farage would disagree with doing that...

    Farage beleives in almost limitless freedom of speech, so he is completely cool with people voicing their opinion in such a manner.

    Aside, I don't think I hate any politician enough to heckle them in the street and trap them in a pub, not even Griffin o_o.

    I saw Nick Griffin shopping in my town centre a couple of years ago, but I manned to resist shouting at him! Although if I saw George Galloway I might be tempted.

    This is great from a couple years back, Farage stopped in the street by a bunch of mouthy protesters, he manages to engage them in the end:

    It's funny how he's lambasted for being nationalistic in Scotland.

    So he's xenophobic even though he married a German?

    Infact, if you listen to Farage speak he's not xenophobic, he's actually pro European in a cultural and social way. He's just against the EU.

    bunch of lowlife thugs, and as a recent study shows, probably a skinny, scrawny bunch!
    What study was that?

    A Daily Mail commissioned one that found left-wingers are weaker physically than right-wingers. Pile of :poo: if you ask me.

    I think you've misunderstood me. I don't think he's either racist or xenophobic.

    Botham vs. Galloway would be an interesting duel in the battle of ideologies

    Sorry. My mistake. It's just that the left have a habit of throwing words about to demonize people who hold a different viewpoint to them

    Actually they were middle class tossers from the EUSA.

    And I don't quite know where to start. Racist? Fascist? Clearly don't know what the two words mean. Just goes to show, that when the left starts to lose the argument, they go violent and offensive.

    Personally, I thought this was brilliant. This is Scotland taking a stand against backwards policies like these:

    - Leaving the European convention on human rights
    - Opposing same sex marriage
    - Repealing the hunting ban
    - Legalising smoking in pubs
    - Increasing defence spending

    This is nothing to do with Scottish nationalism.

    Do you really think that's what it was about?

    Those with the worst arguments always need to shout the loudest.

    Sheesh, are you UKIP supporters always on edge like that?
    He said you meant the word "xenophobic" instead of "racist".
