'You have no place in our town,' Nigel Farage told ahead of latest Doncaster visit
Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has been told: “You have no place in our town,” ahead of his latest planned visit.
He is due to speak at Doncaster Racecourse on Wednesday as part of a Brexit Party General Election tour of Britain, with tickets to hear him speak on sale at £2.50.
But Doncaster Stand Up To Racism has blasted Mr Farage as ‘one trick pony’ – and says that members won’t be wasting time getting cold or wet protesting against his latest visit.
A spokesman said: “There will be no counter demo from us this time for the simple reason that we are all too busy doing other more productive things.
“We’ve ridden this one trick pony way too often – this time he's "bucking" himself into the rodeo corner" – we don't need to get wet or cold on this occasion.
“We do stand by that he is a racist, misogynist, self serving "politician" and has no place in our town, or anywhere for that matter!”
He was met with protests on his last visit earlier this year and his decision to use the EU funded Doncaster Racecourse as a venue has also been criticised.
Giulia Savini, Best for Doncaster Vice-Chair, said: “This is the third time that the Brexit Party is coming to Doncaster with its populistic anti-European slogans and messages.
“Yet, ironically, they chose an EU funded building to hold their conference. This only shows their hypocrisy, and, through our campaign, we will continue to expose it.”
Mr Farage has also spoken at Doncaster Racecourse previously as leader of UKIP when he was joined at the gathering by outspoken TV and radio columnist Katie Hopkins.
Doncaster Racecourse was one of many South Yorkshire beneficiaries that received European funding as part of the Objective 1 programme which was specifically aimed at promoting economic and social growth in areas with the highest need of support.
