Fake UKIP Twitter accounts posting offensive and abusive material

A number of fake UKIP Twitter accounts have been set up, posting homophobic and racist comments. Some newspapers have gleefully published tweets made by these obviously fake accounts.

The fake profiles are believed to be the work of convicted thug, Joshua Bonehill-Paine, who is currently awaiting sentencing for another campaign of harassment and malicious communications perpetrated during and after a trial earlier in the year for harassment and malicious communications which saw him narrowly escape a prison sentence.
