A Large Crowd Gathered to Hear Nigel Farage at the Brexit Edinburgh Rally


The Nigel Farage roadshow swept into Edinburgh yesterday, and about 500 people turned out to cheer him on.


Outside the venue, a hundred or so members of Edinburgh's unwashed gathered to protest, but they were easily outnumbered by the McPlods who were out in force, with their truncheon fingers twitching in eager anticipation.


The police do seem to have engaged in a bit of overkill by asking the local McDonalds not to sell milkshakes since none of the unwashed was able to get into the all-ticket event. Had they done so the army of doormen who were on hand inside would have quickly sent them flying arse over tit out the doors into the eager hands of McPlod.

I should also point out that blocking one entrance to the hall and forcing people to walk all the way around the square to get in was not exactly helpful to the disabled, like me, to say nothing of the rather attractive women in high heels nor the elderly, but luckily a party figure was around to point out that when he had said to block the entrance it didn't actually apply to people who couldn't walk for whatever reason, so could the McPlods please use their common sense?

Once the police had remembered where their common sense was stored, the barrier was pushed to one side and yours truly was able to hobble in to await the start of the show.

The event then passed off without a hitch, with Nigel Farage throwing caution to the wind and making a play for SNP voters to come over to our side and lend The Brexit Party its vote to get the whole UK out of the clutches of Brussels.

It is intellectually incoherent to want independence from England only to see Scotland become a province of Brussels. Time was when the SNP knew that and campaigned against the European Union, but now, like Labour, it appeals only to the Federast element in society.

I must be honest and say that if I had been in his shoes I would have gone for the low-hanging fruit in the Conservative and Labour votes, but Farage decided to ignore them and placed The Brexit Party squarely on the SNP's front lawn with his appeal. We will know in a few days when the votes are counted if the strategy has worked.

Leaving the Corn Exchange I noticed that all the barriers had been removed, the police were in their vans drinking coffee and the unwashed had gone off, hopefully, to be introduced to soap and water.
