Protests As Nigel Farage Invades Pub Where Drinkers Were Enjoying A Quiet Sunday Lunch

Nigel Farage has been branded "scum" after he interrupted a pleasant afternoon in a pub.

Migrants, breastfeeding mothers and gay people were among the diverse patrons who were enjoying a quiet Sunday lunch in the pub when Farage and his family - also known as his 'entourage' - arrived.

The presence of the Ukip leader apparently forced some of the drinkers to run away. They were later found enjoying a drink in a different pub.

"I hope Ukip are proud of themselves," one told HuffPost UK Comedy. "My children are so terrified by their scaremongering tactics that they didn't even want to come to the pub where Farage was."

"Ukip believes that children born in the UK to immigrants should be classified as immigrants themselves and that immigrant children shouldn't be allowed to attend state school for five years," said another.

"I am utterly appalled by these disgusting people for intimidating children in this way. These people are scum."
