The Ukip leader Nigel Farage has condemned the “fascist scum” who forced him to take refuge in an Edinburgh pub and hung up on a BBC Scotland interview over outrage at the “hatred” in its questioning.
The leader of the UK Independence Party said the “excesses of Scottish nationalism” can be “pretty ugly” and “deeply unpleasant” after he was surrounded and hassled by hardline demonstrators yesterday.
He spoke to BBC Good Morning Scotland about his ordeal, but ended up leaving the phone call early in protest at their line of questioning.
Asked about how many elected representatives he has in Scotland, Mr Farage said: “Absolutely none, but rather more than the BBC. We could have had this interview in England a couple of years ago, although I wouldn’t have met with such hatred as I’m getting from your questions.
Frankly, I’ve had enough of this interview, goodbye.”
