Desperate London Evening Standard try to link Nigel Farage with racist Chelsea fan

Desperate to associate UKIP and Nigel Farage with any unsavoury behaviour, the anti-UKIP London Evening Standard is headlining a picture of one of the Chelsea fans responsible for a racist attack on a man in Parish taken with Nigel Farage.

A UKIP spokesman said:
Neither Mr Parsons nor his brother are members of UKIP, and we have never heard of him.

This photograph was taken outside a London pub. Mr Farage is photographed with and by dozens of people, both by supporters and opponents on a daily basis.
When David Cameron, Ed Miliband or Nick Clegg go and meet the "public" it's a carefully selected group of party officials and loyal supporters who have been vetted well in advance to ensure everything goes to script and pictures with the plebs are reserved for photo ops with the press or sold to the highest bidder. When Nigel Farage goes out to meet the public it's usually a bunch of strangers and he'll stop and talk to anyone and happily have his photo taken with them. Some of those people might be UKIP members, some of them might be Labour ot Conservatives, some of them might be members of organisations that UKIP proscribes like the BNP or EDL and some of them might be racist scum.

In trying to associate Nigel Farage with this moron, all they've done is emphasise the fact that he's not an elitist politician scared of mixing with the proles.
