This leaflet was being handed out at London Bridge station this evening by a team of activists from Stand Up To UKIP. The tagline reads “UKIP is a racist far-right party that loves the rich”.
It’s content is clearly defamatory and it’s truth will no doubt be disputed.
Stand Up to UKIP describe themselves as “an umbrella organisation which believes women, trade unions, anti- racists, black, Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Sikh, other faith communities, LGBT, young people, students and all good people, must unite and stand up to UKIP”, a statement that cleverly fails to name who is within the umbrella.
One of the activists, pictured above, was believed to be carrying a copy of a socialist publication.
UKIP press officer Gowain Towler tweeted “truly bored by them, aggressive, angry people, whose ideology cannot be softened by logic or evidence”.
